I love the atmosphere of this restaraunt, the food is good, but not spectacular. I come because there is nothing I love more than eating seafood on a dock near the water. I have enjoyed the oysters on the half shell at this eatery and have not ever had a problem with grit or lousy taste. The Fried Shrimp are very good and the yellow rice is cooked very well.

We arrived with friends via the car park. Intending to sit outside, we had to walk through clouds of smoke (even staff were smoking) to reach the indoor part of the restaurant, to get some fresh air ! There were six of us, so we asked for separate checks when we saw the 18% added gratuity. (We normally tip 20%+, the problem is when the waitress knows she is guaranteed a tip, she does not need to work for it). She, (Val), assured us we could have as many checks as we liked for 2 people and the 18% would not be added. Didn't happen, she added it. She then insulted our intelligence by saying "I said I would not charge for separating the bills". Who does this manager think she is dealing with - morons ! Shame, she was a good waitress, who lost out - quite a bit. The Pub looses also because we wouldn't choose to go there again, and, of course discussing experiences in local restaurants is always a big topic with snowbirds.The food: Mandarin salad was very good. Cod/french fries inedible, some sort of oily batter had to be removed in order to eat the fish within.. Fish main plates were so tiny they looked like children's portions. They were nothing special and not value for money. No complimentary bread at the table either. All in all a disappointing meal.

We had the worst waitress ever. Spent two hours and 50 minutes in a restaurant whose service was deplorable. When we complained, finally, to the manager, she tried to make excuses for the waitress. All in all it totally ruined our evening. We were given a discount but this was too little too late.
