I haven't been here for dinner, but it was good for lunch. It is a little on the expensive side though. The avocado fries are my favorite. So delicious! The halibut tacos and ahi tacos are both very good, but $14 for two medium tacos seems a little bit pricey for a small plate. The entrees also looked to be... More

Happy Hour is in full swing from 4p-6p. Prices are reasonable, and there is a large selection of small plates, which is nice. Nice view of boats and marina. I agree with the reviewer who wrote "no atmosphere, really heavy clunky chairs" - chair are not too comfortable, either. Not much to make this place stand out, other than relatively... More

I have been here for lunch, dinner, drinks and parties and would come back again. It can get loud but the food is always good and the drinks are strong. My favorites are the ahi tuna salad and the bacon wrapped shrimp. We threw a party here for my daughter's graduation and could have been happier. The planning was easy,... More

The service is terrific and the food is good, but not what you would expect for a restaurant located in a harbor. But, in their defense, I prefer simple and well prepared seafood, without it getting too foody.

Open room, no "atmosphere", really heavy clunky chairs. Had the fish and chips. The fish was wonderful but the chips, yikes! Soft, greasy and just way over salted. Giant chunks of salt stuck to them. There were salt shakers on the table so why the cook felt he had to dump salt on them in the kitchen is anybody's guess.... More

We were brought to this place by local residents. We enjoyed the great service, lovely views, and some really good food. I had the beet salad, my wife had the bacon wrapped prawns, the other couple had the prime rib burger and the yellow noodle creation. Waitress was helpful with menu and prompt in her service in spite of juggling... More

Nice menu choices for lunch and dinner and great Happy Hour prices and menu. Windows face the water and Harbour. The wooden chairs a bit hard to sit on for a long time but well-worth it. Give The Loft a try. Love the fish and chips--the french fries are delicious!

I will definitely go back. Great happy hour food! And the bartender was friendly and efficient. We each had our own yummy salad, and split a couple of other apps. Was plenty for a meal.
