Yes, it's a local pub and eatery, but considering the options this is the best dinner place in the area. They clearly have everyone in the town's attention. The local food is fish and these guys serve the local fish in the area prepared just like you want it. The staff is amazing, hard working locals who know their business.... More

Friendly staff, very large place, shuffleboard. Good for large groups. Food is okay. Specials each night make the pricing more reasonable than some other pubs in the area. Would be nice if there was more variety of beer and ale on tap - mostly local stuff. If you want a Guinness, you get a can, for example.

Four ladies met for brunch on a Saturday morning. Not one of us received a hot meal. The eggs were cold and rubbery served with cold toast. The haddock tips had been fried twice and were so greasy they were not edible. The chicken wrap had maybe one ounce of processed chicken in it, and it was served with ice... More

We stop by for the exceptional weekly specials and a favorite beverage to sit out on the patio to enjoy the view!

Food is is top drawer. Wednesday and Thursday Chicken Wings at $0.50 per wing and numerous sauces. Friendly staff and tucked in upstairs... More

Wow effect, did not have to drive to Halifax for a great pub ambiance. First time going there and it was on wings nite. Food was tasty, drinks were served as ordered. Chris, our waiter was excellent. He took all our orders for six people with appetizers and drinks without taking notes and all was served without mistakes. Liked the... More

This is an informal pub with surprisingly good food. Don't expect anything gourmet but the choices have never disappointed me. The burger IMHO is as good as you can get anywhere, the fish and chips, and the other sandwich choices all made with good quality ingredients and tasty. This place is a regular go-to destination for after work get togethers... More
