My daughter, her husband and my husband and I went for car ride to see the sculptured Rocks and stopped here for lunch. Very nice cozy restaurant on New Foundland Lake. Food good and view beautiful. What a life! You can sit inside or outside.

The fried haddock and scallop basket came out very fast, fresh and tasty, even though we arrived about 15 minutes before closing time. The waitress was super friendly and gave us the attention we expected in spite of our late arrival.

We did not have to wait in any lines. Our food arrived promptly by an excellent waitress. The service superb. The pricy food another story. Very disappointed. It tasted like frozen food, not quality and bland. The calamari was thick with breading, rubbery, and tasteless....More
