Located 1.5 km off route 340 in Hillgrade at the town wharf, this restaurant is located right on the water. There is an outdoor patio, but it was a bit too chilly to sit outside when we were there. This is a busy place so...More

We hoped to go and have a lobster dinner but it was all done unfortunately. We did have lobster in a lobster roll and in the seafood chowder which was excellent. The cod was very good

The location is breathtakingly beautuful and the homemade food wonderful. We both had the cod fish cakes with a house salad and a side of "real" fries. Everything was fresh and delicious. The service was excellent and warm. Wish we had left room for dessert.

The fried cod had a delicate batter and the fish was very flavorful. I got 2 scoops of mashed potato salad instead of fries.

They were out of pound and a half lobster, but the 1 lb and 1 3/4 lobster was really delicious. If it is rainy they don't use the outdoor deck and there is only 1/3 the room inside. So get there early and wait -...More
