I’ve been here a few times. As a venue, it’s fine you should Go there. However, the attitude of the service staff is appalling and will Prevent me from returning

With a little time to spare on the way to the airport I decided to grab a light dinner. They have a friendly atmosphere and the service was excellent. A few local beer options on tap fit very well with the end of my day....Seafood chowder was very good.More

This place is under relatively new ownership, and I recommend you check it out. My lunch was delicious (chose the maple curry penne) and coupled with a garden salad and nice cold beer enjoyed it thoroughly. The server was attentive and the atmosphere was perfect...for a damp, cool day out and about. The view of the river added a nice touch. Prices are reasonable given the high rate of inflation we all notice with food and drink. Looking forward to going back to have an ice cream available in a little shop just behind the restaurant.More

There are other restaurants within 10km that would have been worth visiting. My husband had the special said was good and “warm”. I had the beef flatbread after the server said they had and was excellent. It was cold, way too much sauce and almost...none of the main ingredients. The inside seating also smells like stale fried burnt oil. I would not recommend a flat bread and I wouldn’t go back for a second chance.More

Thank you so much for the lovely meal tonight on the way to the airport. We did not think our trip could be any better and then we stopped for dinner here! They made it over the top fantastic. Heather was our server and was...amazing as well as extremely kind. The meal was delicious and the outdoor area behind the restaurant was perfect as well. Can’t say enough great things about this restaurant! We will be back for sure!More

We were so glad we ended up here for supper! A happy and relaxed atmosphere immediately beckoned us in. Tastefully rustic decor gives the place a cozy feel. The woman who seated us quickly took our drink order and delivered it just as speedily. I...ordered a coffee and she brewed me a brand new pot. Being a coffee snob, I wholeheartedly appreciated this gesture. And the coffee was absolutely delicious. We both ordered the Turtleback burger. This burger was something else! Huge patties of juicy beef from a local source, generous helpings of tasty bacon, melty cheese, big bites of mushrooms and tomatoes, and a delicious toasted bun. The fries were perfectly cooked and seasoned. I think I can say the Turtleback is the best burger I’ve had, with my previous top choice being from the Keg. The waitress was extremely friendly, and made us feel welcome there. We will definitely be back.More

Lunch with a friend during Covid. All restrictions were in place. Friendly prompt server. I had the soup of the day ... Minestrone. It was delicious! Hot, (served with a yummy slice of grilled focaccia) and filled with vegetables, and a bit of a spicy...“bite”. I loved it. The half size of garden salad was also very tasty. A delightful lunch. 👍More

Quick lunch when visiting our daughter. Everything was very tasty. Homemade ice tea was very good. Fish and chips very good as well. Grilled Veg Sandwich was fresh and tasty and the Cheeseburger was clearly with a homemade patty. Tasty as well. And yeah, the...view from the enclosed patio out back was nice as well. All in all - any time again!!More

After looking at the take out menu, my husband and I decided to try the Fish & Chips with the curbside delivery. Ordering was simple; we phoned, paid by Credit card and picked up. Meal was ready in just under 10 minutes; impressive service. We...each had the two piece fish(haddock) & chips. It was delicious; very generous in size for the fish and lots of fries. While the fries weren't homemade they were still very good and crisp. The price was also very good at $34.50 I could only eat one piece. My husband enjoyed his 3 piece fish & chips. The pieces had a nice crisp beer batter (from a local brewery) without being too thick and nice flaky fish. We will order from here again.More

On our way to Florida needed some things from Shoppers Drug Mary and saw this place on our way by. Had been looking for a place to eat brunch before our flight to Florida. Asked if they served steak and eggs. Waitress said not on...the menu but we have steak so we can definitely make steak and eggs. It was by far the beast I had ever had and we travel lots and eat out lots. If you come to this restaurant for breakfast ask for the steak and eggs. Home fries were also amazingMore

A nice little spot for supper - I recently tried the seafood tagliatelle with creme brulee for dessert. The service was very pleasant and the food was good. The dining area is a bit small so it can get a little noisy but the atmosphere...is nice.More

Had the onion rings to start. Large order good thing we were sharing. They were delicious best onion rings I've ever had. Also had the turtleback burger it was so good big and juicy, perfect amount of toppings and the fries were hot and crispy...just the way I like them. Had turtle cheesecake which was highly overpriced and low quality and tasted grainy wouldn't get it again. Service was average considering it was busy and only 2 servers. Some things took a while but I wasnt in a hurry. Downfall was it was super cold even with a crowd and I had to keep my jacket on. And people came in back door but there was no signage in parking lot that would indicate it was ok to go in the back entrance so we had to go around to the front door.More
