A wide variety of items on the menu including some local which is great. Lots of local beverages on tap. Top notch service who got everything right. We will be back next time. Beautifully restored turn of the century building so a great ambience.

Staying across at the Delta. Myself and business associate were looking for another place that was highly recommended but couldn't find it .. menu looked good. Place was pretty busy for 5:00 pm so why not. Did not disappoint. I had seafood chowder as I always have to try everywhere out east. Excellent. Also had the salmon which was recommended... More

The food and service here were excellent. Enjoyed the easygoing atmosphere and decor. No pressure here as we felt very relaxed and found it easy to have a nice quite table conversation. Highly recommended.

Last summer, I was having dinner there. We ordered mussels, lobster rolls and seafood pasta. The pasta was great. Mussels wasn't fresh at all, we had to return the dish for something else. The lobster roll had too much mayo sauce. 3* is what I rate for this restaurant.

Tried the mussel and bacon appetizer in cream sauce. Huge order for a reasonable price. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was pleasant. Everyone in our party of 10 we're pleased. Thanks!

A nice restaurant and well situated. The seafood platter was well done, even if it was out of season for most of the foods. A bit on the pricey side, but a decent splurge. Nice ambience to the place as well, and the servers are friendly and attentive.

Good service and lovely upscale decor made for an enjoyable night. We started with the seafood chowder and it came hot with two very nice biscuits. I then had the curry which was good and so big I had to take some home. My husband had the fish and chips which were very good. Nice night all round

I have eaten here several times and have always been pleased with The Merchantman I had the pan fried haddock with chutney sauce. It was excellent. I would highly recommend I had the Sticky Date pudding with carmel sauce for dessert. It is an absolute must have
