I usually order my burgers without the bun because I am really sensitive to gluten but Bruce told me that Melanie had really done her research and that I really should try it. So I did. (I never eat gluten free bread because its worse tasting than the discomfort after!) This was the best homemade burger I've ever had in... More

We always enjoyed Ship & Shore for lunch - very casual, great burgers. But with the new owners, it's a whole new ballgame! Expanded interior, changing it from a burger joint to a casual but tasteful pub. New menu, with far more menu options, although burgers are still available! Extended hours, so you can have a great dinner in a... More

Very tasty generous portions. Was especially impressed with choice of salad or soup with no extra charge for Greek salad, which was excellent. Ambiance was very nice with casual &... More

We were recommended this restaurant for the great fish and chips and we were not disappointed. We were warned that it was slightly run down but upon arrival we discovered new owners and totally renovated. We had great cod and chips, great service. Well worth the slight detour of the highway.

Just ate at the ship and shore marine restaurant, and found the food amazing. The Seafood chowder is filled with lots of tasty fish with a very creamy base. The clubhouse is fantastic and the ambiance is great, looking out at deep bay marina. Weather coming via the water or automobile, it's a great location to visit on your travels

4 of us went for lunch and reserved the table by the window. The recent renos are great and the staff couldn't have been friendlier. One couple shared the 2 piece fish n chips and they looked awesome. They said that the fish was delicious and the batter so crispy and light. Another friend had the Chicken Breast Burger and...

The new owners reopened the cafe just over a week ago. We were blown away by the changes they've made. The grocery-store area is gone and the whole place has been transformed into a lovely, cozy restaurant. Huge, new plate-glass windows face the ocean. The kitchen has been expanded and is partially open to the restaurant. There were three people... More

Fish & Chips are really, really good - crunchy batter, home cut fries and the best milkshakes and the best view as you enjoy!
