Went here between curling matches. Shared a medium Hawaiian pizza and chicken salad with my partner. Very filling (ate too much). Ordered a bottle of wine, very reasonably priced. Would definitely return when in Port Hawkesbury again. Service was excellent, fast and friendly.

Not much to look at but food and value were great. Staff were attentive and friendly. Crispy haddock special was amazing. Service was very friendly and accommodating, First meal came incorrect and the wait staff were quick to correct and very apologetic. Good value. Would recommend.

We approached this place with some hesitation as it did not look promising from the outside. The service was rather slow, and it took some time to get noticed, never mind served. Once we did, though, we were pleased with the food, which was imaginative and tasty. We had their version of donair fries and were especially happy with it.... More

This place does great food and sells great beer!!! Service was excellent and staff friendly. Nothing fancy but obviously well used by the locals which is a good sign. There are specials each day which are excellent value.

Great place and prices for food. We ordered 2 crusty Haddock dinners which were delicious. The batter was very nicely done.

I completely blame Papa's for the standard to which all other now fail to meet. Crisp battered fish great chips and all reasonably priced.

Great place to eat, very clean and friendly. Lots of parking easy access. Food was great and a good size serving. I had lunch with my daughter who was on her lunch hour, she pre-ordered and our table was reserved and the food delivered to our table very quickly gave us more time to enjoy our lunch

Thank Pauline. M
