Busy place on Wednesday evening for all you can eat fish. The fish is fresh and good and the atmosphere is casual.

Service was quick and the servers were friendly. It's nice when you walk in the front door,you can see the cooks preparing the meals.I always like that... More

After getting a recommendation from the shop owner and customer of a craft store down the street we decided to have dinner at this restaurant.

Been there several times with family and in-laws. Food is always good with pretty big portions. It is a local favorite of ours. You will enjoy.

Great place to eat. If ordering off the selective menu or in for specials, the food and service will be certain to please! Great portions and friendly atmosphere for all. Entertainment nights are frequent. Breakfasts are incredible, the chicken noodle soup is delicious, fish & chips devine and you MUST try the hoagie as built!

Totally surprised, the place was very clean and inviting; the food was good, freshly cooked omelette or eggs the way you want them, pancakes, bacon, sausage, home fries and toast with a platter of fruits to choose from. The service was excellent... More

We go to this restaurant on a regular basis. The service and the food is always 5 star. Our favourite is the pan fried pickerel! A must try!! And the fries... Delicious. There is a great variety of dishes that will please even the pickiest eaters. Check it out, you won't be disappointed. Danielle Dorion
