We went there 3 nights in a row; twice on a weeknight, once on a Saturday. On weeknights, they have great entertainment during dinner: local fiddle players perform while you feast on lobster, lobster roles, etc. We didn't book in advance and we had to wait about 10 minutes before we were seated, but it was worth the wait.
Our second diner was especially memorable: a 16 year old fiddle playing girl gave a very impressive performance, accompanied by a very dynamic 80 year old lady on the piano; rock & roll!!

Loved the food and the fiddle music ! The seafood pasta (scallops and shrimp) was delicious! Service was very good as well.

The e food value for crab and lobster can't be beat by BC standards. The entertainers free maybe - but pretty dead as entertainers go - young Fiddler should visit the tavern on Thursday night and watch Joe ina ction to see what life / fiddle and enjoyment look like. And she is a good technician just - dull. Food was good.

The presentation was very plain, and the sides were straight from the bagged frozen food section. But, the wine a beer were yummy and cold.....and that's what counts after a long day of driving. The fish and seafood were excellent. The service was great, so all in all a good choice.

The seafood here is some of the best and best priced you will find on this side of the Cape. The place is also able to draw in some great local musicians -- a real treat given how small the dining room is. If you want to mix with the locals and sample some of the best pie around as well, this is the place to go.
