First off, yes they were super busy and only 1 waitress working the floor. If you're in a hurry don't stop by. Having said that, we were in and out within an hour.

Great atmosphere, mostly locals and everyone was friendly. Even the overworked server!

Best fish cakes of the trip! Also tried Toutons with molasses - very yummy and strangely addicting.

If you've got the time and don't mind a little wait for NFLD diner food be sure to check it out!

if you like sitting down and not being served and then another table comes in and they get served and their food first then this is the place for you. We gave them three try's because it was just down form our hotel, by the third time I had had enough. HIRE MORE STAFF FOR BREAKFAST.

I love the breakfast special at Zach's. Reasonable priced, cooked well, lots of food, and the home fries are the best in town.

Maybe ok for breakfast - ate lunch there - mussels (dry, salty, sauceless, good bread, margarine and not butter) and seafood chowder - totally unremarkable except for its stodginess, which was outstanding. Forgot in my hunger that a restaurant where you are the only diner is not likely going to be great - how it has survived for as long as it claims is hard to devine. Gamble on breakfast if you must eat here - but if you are looking for a sure thing look elsewhere.
