Beautiful view, great service and the food was wonderful. Heard from many patrons that it was their favorite fish and chips on the island. The seafood pasta was another great meal!

Great food and great service in a beautiful setting - a dock over the water. We watched a spectacular sunset over the bay eating fish and chips. Magic.

Visited recently with my family and we all had fish and chips, which was delicious! Had a beautiful view of the ocean and the service provided was great. Visiting from London and would definitely come here again if ever back in the area!

Owner Eileen cooks up fresh tasty home made seafood. There are burgers & salads for the meat lovers. Excellent seafood cooked on the spot. Everything from cod & chips to crab & lobster meals. Friendly service. Eat indoors or out on the dock. Loved it.

A tiny restaurant on the ocean with great food. A neat spot worth stopping for some great food. The rhubarb relish with the cod cakes was a great touch. Eileen even shared her recipe.

We were here last in 2016. Wonderful food and service. We had fresh crab entrees. Lobster was sold out. We would recommend this as a “have to do “.

We spent the day in the Twillingate area and needed a dinner spot. We picked this one from TripAdvisor. We arrived early and sat on the patio by the bay. The lobster-catching season was open but they had plenty of live lobsters in their pool....More
