“Nice location but...”
Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

We arrived for a late lunch with a few late diners still finishing their meals. We ordered fish, one with chips, one with salad. The fish was OK, the chips seemed to have been re-warmed in a microwave... Soggy. The salad was mostly lettuce with a pretty ho-hum dressing. A nice setting, but the food is not memorable.

“Great ambiance, fresh seafood”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

We took my mother-in-law here for a nice dinner, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The servings are large, and the prices are very reasonable (for a nice restaurant - not takeout). The seafood and vegetables are local and well-prepared (although the salmon was a bit overcooked). The seafood platter is great, and big enough to share. The bread served before the meal is hot, fresh and delicious. The best thing about this place is the building, which is a renovated boat shed on a pier in a lovely bay. Very unique and bright.

“Beautiful location, building & atmosphere but TERRIBLE service”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

'Tourist Information' had recommended this as a restaurant that we should visit. We were impressed with the location & views but after waiting over twenty minutes we hadn't even been given a menu. We were just ignored. It wasn't as though the restaurant was especially busy and since we were seated right in the middle of the room, our presence should have been apparent, but we were treated as though we were invisible.

The single star is warranted for the location because it really is quite stunning, but the service only deserves a negative rating.

“Great views and great food”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

We drove to Northport just to see the views and eat here. Neither disappointed. We had oysters on the half shell. They were fresh and salty and just about perfect. The mussels and bacon wrapped scallops were amazing. They make all the desserts in house. We had strawberry pie and locked the plate! Decent beer list and a basic liquor list. Make the drive and enjoy!

“Beautiful Views of the Harbour”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Gorgeous airy renovated boat builders shop. Tasteful decor that is comfortable and not stuffy at all. Very nice food, lots of local seafood and produce. Verging on gourmet. Nice for a party group or a couple wanting a special dinner out. But relaxed enough for families to enjoy too. And lots to look at and explore on the docks outside.
