We ate here after visiting the nearby seal colony. We all had scallops, 2 on rice and two on sandwiches. We also had seafood chowder, which was kinda gross... it was brown and had mint in it. Not creamy, more like brown stock water with bits of seadfood in it. The scallops were cooked nice, and were fresh but the whole meal was a bit bland. But the location, pricing and service was all excellent. We were in a campervan and they brought the food over to us. In return we cleaned their plates :) I would eat here again because all the other reviews are excellent and maybe I just ate here on a bad day.

One of the best seafood BBQ ever, no frills, all taste. We enjoyed the scallops and crayfish on the outside table - well worth the visit.
