Came in for supper with another couple. Service was very slow, not too many other people in restaurant. Food was mediocre, no one truly enjoyed their meal, it was food, was the response most gave. Probably won't eat here again

A good in budget restaurant for tasting Atlantic sea food especially lobster. The location is so nice and food quality is acceptable.

My family and I have visited this restraunt many times. We live just up the road. We take turns taking our children out for a treat. Everyone's favorite is the pizza and poutine!!! We order it over and over again. The staff is very friendly with true island hospitality. We will visit many times again in the future!!!

We stopped here for supper while touring the area. Our meal was great ! Scallops were the evening special and we enjoyed our meal. The service was prompt and attentive. The restaurant was clean and cool on a hot afternoon .

And do not recommend the... More

Out for a drive with my teenaged daughter and decided to give this place a try. Have driven by many times and figured it was time to stop in. What a mistake that was.

Great friendly service and it hit the spot after seeing so many other places closed for the season. Food was so so but it was a good break from all the driving in the ugly weather
