We go almost every Friday after work for the fish and chips and especially the Lemon Pepper fish! The Staff are the best in town and the food is always great with a home style.

Went here with friends because we heard the food was good. You could see the Grande River rolling just outside the window. Food was really good with big portions. Price was more than fair and the Caesar’s were perfect.
