We had a delicious dinner there - excellent calamari and bacon wrapped scallops! Very accommodating with a gluten allergy!

My wife and I went there for lunch. She had a 1/2 doz Oysters to start and said they were excellent, nice and plump. the raisin bread was very fresh, I had a Bowl of Chowder and it was soooo very good. I rate it the best of the 6 I've had here. She had the Thai Shrimp pasta. I had 2 Keith's IPAs and she had a Penfold Chard after her Frozen Diaquary. Our waitress, Jennifer was extremely helpful in recommending some choices for Italian. She got a map and provided 3 different choices. The bill came to $88.41 CDN before tip. We had gone in a couple of days ago just for drinks and the young lady at the bar recognized us and came over to say hello.
I'd go back again if time permits.

Had Dinner here this evening with a party of 6 and the service and food were good. They specialize in fresh seafood and there is also beef and lamb on the menu for those who prefer not to have seafood. They run a couple of specials nightly and the biggest problem is trying to decide what to order off the menu as everything sound so good. Everyone had seafood and between us we covered off crab, lobster, scallops, halibut, seafood chowder, Haddock and crab cakes. There was nary a complaint from the table which is quite the feat. Pleasant atmosphere with the tables spaced so that you are not crowded upon other diners. They can accommodate large groups of intimate tables for 2. A very nice place to take visitors to introduce them to the seafood of Atlantic Canada. The server was attentive without being intrusive and very knowledgeable about the dishes and the origin of the ingredients. My only slight complaint was that some of the fresh vegetables were slightly overdone but then again I like them Al-detente but others like them more well done so it may simply be a matter of personal preference.

A guest of ours of the older generation stated that he had been introduced to a new food for the first time today - the lobster mash potato. Got to be tried and i'm glad you did!
