Our experence started out with a great waiter, very attentive, funny and answered our questions about the area. Unfortunately the food is what turned us off from returning here again. I ordered fish and chips, the fish was so dry I only ate about half of it, the fries were the frozen packaged kind. One friend had chicken which was... More

At first glance the bar here looks cool, however it has no wow factor and overpriced drinks. Our server was grumpy. The place looks like it needs to have some fall cleaning done. Every time we have stopped in for drinks we've seen a lot of flies around and therefore we've never ordered food, although the menu looks appealing.

My family and I went out to dinner here for a quick bite and I've never had such bad service before. I believe our waitress name was Lyndsey. Not only did she not bring all of our appetizers all out at once but she completely forgot to bring out my brothers chowder and thought that he wanted it with his... More

Definitely overpriced because of the location. Fried food was overdone, except the coconut shrimp. Husband did not like the haddock sandwich. Nice view, good service.

clean and close to the campground. ordered the pulled pork which was decent, but it was served with bagged chips. Ordered fries on the side and they were soggy - not a great impression!

The gooey white paste you call chowder is disgusting. Come to Nova Scotia and learn to make delicious chowder full of seafood.

Service was the best part but the location should be great and yet turns out to look quite tired. The food is very basic, expect nothing amazing, and you won't be disappointed ... not a lot of options were open when we visited so this filled a gap, but i wouldn't recommend this as a place to drive out to.

We stopped here for drinks and appetizers, after we saw a sign advertising happy hour specials. When we asked our server what the specials were, his response was, "I can't remember, but they aren't very good." I also caught him giving my mother in law a rude look after she asked a question. It didn't really set the tone for... More
