If you are in Red Bay - it is the place to eat. We arrived right as a bus group was leaving - and the service was still great. Excellent Fish and Chips.

Had a wonderful lunch here when visiting Red Bay and its Historical sites. Food was superb, especially the desserts - go the berries. Service was pleasant and helpful. Loved the gift shop and displays in the place.

Outstanding place. The owners sister in Port Hope Simpson called ahead to see if they would stay open until we got there, and hold a room. We were a little late, at the edge of dark, and were welcomed with open arms. Great accommodations were...More
