Love their Fish Bits...interesting things, such as, fish cakes, baked beans, etc..Homemade baked goods always a treat. We are locals, but, one of our favorite places to eat.

Went with a friend for lunch expecting a little bit more Gourmet. Restaurant was cute, Diner looking and really busy. A little disappointed that the only vegetarian thing on the menu with salad. Food was average. Service was pretty quick considering how busy it was.

The menu is pretty typical Maritime fare: clamp and fries, turkey or hot beef dinner, burgers, etc. That you would find in a family restaurant. It seems very popular with the licals
