The food was good, especially the home-made soup. The new owners will be doing some things to dress up the interior. They are great folks and will share info about the island and the First Nation heritage. If you are looking for something fancy, this isn't it. But, if you are looking for good, home-cooked food in a casual atmosphere, this is the place!

We sat out on the patio and despite the "Patio guests - Announce yourself to the wait staff inside" sign, we were greeted almost immediately.

The server was very friendly, answered all our questions, and was always on hand when we were ready for another beer.

The food wasn't gourmet or unique, but it was good. Burgers were homemade and the turkey on the clubhouse was real turkey. I ordered a caesar salad and the tex burger. My aunt ordered the clubhouse & french fries. The fries were huge! The rest of our group ordered the fish & chips. The fish was whitefish and maybe a little small, but everyone was happy with it. They did make a mistake putting in my uncle's order, so it was a little late coming out.. They apologized, it was out shortly thereafter and we weren't in a rush so didn't mind anyway.

I would love to go back in an evening and sit inside. It's a little dark and very rustic. What you might expect of a small-town tavern and I think it would have a great atmosphere. There were lots of locals that were there finishing lunch when we arrived, and they returned for their afternoon break while we were still there. The washrooms were very clean, and the restaurant is wheelchair-friendly (my aunt is in a wheelchair). I liked that it seemed to be the place the folks from the area flocked to for a couple of beers and a bite to eat. Perfect on a warm, sunny afternoon!
