Great place to go for music, food, atmosphere, scenery. The food is surprisingly good: mostly Asian rice/noodle bowls, lots of beer variety and cover bands are quite good; plus deck has a great view of the harbour.

Went here for supper and stayed for the live music. Great food, friendly staff and engaged owners. A real gem of a place.

We had lunch there a few weeks ago as we were visiting with our son and daughter in law. Lunch was delicious, great variety. I forgot my Tilley Hat and emailed the owner who graciously shipped it back to my Calgary address free of charge!

The food here was really good. The view was nice and the service was excellent. Nice place to sit and enjoy the sights and warm up after a nice hike on Mount Maxwell.
