“Service slow but food is great”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Stopped by during lunch and was seated right away. Must have gotten there the right time because place began to fill up quickly. Wife and I had great meal while overlooking the beach and harbour but trying to get final bill took far too long. Recommend the food, but the service needs to improve.

“Excellent Local Fare”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Stopped here after an evening air flight around the Island. What a treat. First class food, excellent presentation, good wine list and at a reasonable price for the quality. Being right on the seawall the view is spectacular. Manager and our waitress were quite attentive and checked in frequently to see if there was anything else they could assist us with. We give it a two thumbs up and worth your time!

“Great Fish and Chips”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

After hearing more than one person rave about the fish and chips, we had to go try it ourselves. While the fries were average, the fish was perfect. They only use ONO (Wahoo) and the meat was nicely firm. The batter was excellent and even with malt vinegar, it didn't turn into a mushy mess. Actually stayed on the fork. Fish was not greasy at all.
