Went last minute and they made room for us even though the place was full. Had the crab cakes ~ fresh~ very tasty! Also the lobster roll with side of salad and fries was really good. Lots of fresh lobster piled on a very tasty bun. Friendly service, cool atmosphere. Worth the 15 minute drive out of downtown.

"We'll have a table for you in a couple minutes" we're told when we arrive. We're given menus to review while we wait. Moments later glasses of fresh, ice cold water are brought to us. A minute passes and we're warmly escorted to a great table by the window. $1 oysters are great. You know when you order fish and... More

We did not have time to stay for lunch - sadly! But we had time to grab some great takeout from the attached store. The clam chowder was fresh, rich, and chock full of good stuff. So yummy! The delicious crab cakes needed nothing to make them more amazing but the miso aioli was a great little foil to the... More

Apart from its location in a strip mall on one of Ottawa's main thoroughfares, everything about this combination fish market and restaurant is just right. Well prepared fish and seafood from a short menu with maybe about ten appetizers and an equal number of entrees. Here, it's all about concentrating on a few menu items done perfectly. We had shrimp,... More

I have long been a patron of this nice restaurant. It is bright and cheerful (if not a little loud), great service, and beautifully prepared fish. The menu is not extensive but everything on it is tempting. Wine is a little expensive, I find. There is also a fish bar attached and I go every week for excellent fish (so... More

My husband and I occasionally escape the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives, including our two tiny humans, and grab a lunch date. This is one of our favourite spots. I really enjoy the moules frites and I think my husband has had everything on the menu with no complaints. It is small and reservations are recommended. If you... More

Nice place, very friendly and accommodating, but the timing of the service was a bit of a let down . Great location and lots of parking.

I went here with my husband for lunch on Saturday. He had the lobster bisque, which he said was rather tasteless, as well as the seafood soup, which was ok. I had the clam chowder, which was pretty good, and the crab cakes, which I also enjoyed. So a mixed review from us for this restaurant. We would only go... More

Three of us went today (Sunday) at 1130. More than half the restaurant was empty with reserved signs on the table. Server was all frantic, apologizing for not having any room. We set at the bar. We left at 1230pm with the same amounts of tables only with their reserved signs on. Very bizzare organization. The food was whatever even... More
