“Outdoor casual dinning with a local music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

Fresh seafood, prepared well- need some professional touch.
Very friendly waitresses.
For th area, and for the price... It is good for a quick stop on the road.
I recommend it.

“Lobster is the thing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

I have read the reviews here and several are negative. Our experience was positive, but we stuck to a simple rule, never order from a restaurant's freezer. The treat here are the fresh lobsters from the waterside pens. A 1 1/4 pounder with salad or fries was considerably less expensive than a comparable meal in St. John's or Halifax and it does not come any fresher or with a better view. This is a lobster restaurant with some other things on the menu. Come for the freshness and give the freezer a pass.

“Food ok not a lot of choice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

There's a lack of places to eat in the area out of season
So it was a must we had to eat there
Just was not a great choice on the menu a little overpriced

“Great location for a light lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

The view from the outside deck is delightful. This is a good place to stop for a light lunch before or after visiting the more crowded and expensive Peggy's Cove just up the road. The fresh seafood menu includes simply prepared steamed lobster, fried claims and oysters on the half shell. The place really needs a chief to add another level to the food to match the location and view.
