The Smoked Salmon on a Bagel was the most disappointing dish I have ever been served in a restaurant. Little, flavourless lumps of farmed salmon on one side of a cold, un-toasted white bagel with a razor-thin spread of cream cheese and a few pieces of onion on the other side. The capers mentioned in the description were simply absent.... More

Right on the water! Craft room upstairs is big, and has lots of stuff for all ages. Was interested in a piece of wall art - but no one knew the price? That was a bit sad - but the club sandwich and fries downstairs made everything better. Really friendly staff and great food service.

We arrived at 11:25 to learn the restaurant opened at 11:30. We were starved. We ordered a bowl of chowder between us and fish and chips. Dressing and gravy is a must in Newfoundland for fish and chips. We treated oursleves to a beer. Lunch came to around $70 which was a little steep, we thought, but drinks shove up... More

My partner and I had lunch here after a whale watching / iceberg tour and really enjoyed the stay. We both had the fish and chips and it hit the spot. It was light and flaky fresh fish and warmed us up after our cold day on the water. It's has a great spot next to the ocean, so was... More

We stopped at the dock marina craft store and ended up buying several great treasures including clothing. They have lots of local craft, artwork as well as high end products and decor. You definitely need some time to really have a good look around, too much to see in a short period of time. Once shopped out we popped downstairs... More

We dined at the Dock Marina Restaurant twice. During the first visit, the service and food were both very good. We enjoyed our meal so much, that we returned the next day. However, the service was average, it took forever for us to get our food, and the food was just okay. Hopefully, it was just an off day. Be... More

We grew tried of expensive restaurants, so it was a real pleasure to find a restaurant that served good food, at a good value, with friendly service. The food isn't fancy, but it is good and there is a nice variety. We enjoyed it so much, that we came back the following night.

This is a wonderful place to eat in Trinity. The restaurant has a beautiful view of the bay that can be seen from all tables. The service was friendly and efficient.

The restaurant is on the lower level of a store where you can find all kinds of Newfoundland products. The restaurant is bright and spacious. The fish is absolutely delicious. I recommend the cod as it comes in a tasty light batter. The staff are friendly and efficient and the owner is usually on site welcoming customers.
