“Day trip to the island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

Never been to the island. Decided to come over and this was our stop for a bite to eat. The four of us all liked the food. I ordered the two piece fish and chips, two ordered the cheeseburgers and one of us ordered the spicy chicken wrap. Orders came in quick and hot. The fish was flaky and breaded perfect, the burgers were good and the wrap was massive and had the right amount of heat. Standard souvenirs were available for purchase as well. Definitely drop in for a bite to eat.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

We read the negative review and we were hesitant. Locals said it was the place to go. So we tried it. Very very busy spot. We were told right up front a 25 minute wait. The gift shop was an excellent spotto put in the time. We had the fish and chips. It was truly amazing. Homemade batter. Fresh fish. Fries just right. Will definitely do back!!

“Horrible Service, Terrible Food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

My wife and I spent three days hiking and sightseeing on New Brunswick's beautiful Grand Manan Island. At the end of second day, tired from hiking, we thought we would have a quick, diner-style supper. We stopped at this restaurant, which houses a gift shop, located on the main route on the island.

Sue wanted fried chicken, the reason we stopped here, since the restaurant is known for this. It was 7:30 pm, but the place was busy. Sorry, she was told, they were almost out of chicken and wanted to keep the rest for the next day. No apology. Just said with a straight face. Sue ordered chicken fingers instead, something she reluctantly chose. I ordered a pizza, but wanted fish, something one would think would have been in abundant supply on an island whose main industry is fishing.

Sue's meal was pretty bleak, tasteless, dried out chicken fingers with crappy french fries. My pizza wasn't bad, but had a store bought taste though it was made there. What was odd was that I was given a small paper plate on which to put my pizza. No utensils, no inquiry whether I wanted water, coffee, etc.

This place is bad. Locals may frequent it, but for good quality diner food that is very reasonably priced and with good service, go to the Sea Shell Restaurant in North Head. See my review on that restaurant.
