Hi! We always have a special board, but give us a call closer to the 14th and we will let you know what kind of fresh fish we are able to bring in. Thanks for asking and Happy Valentines Day!

Yes, they seem to be not the most technological. But #6 on TripAdvisor says something as to food, ambiance & anything essentially non spelling-related! Did you get to enjoy on your time here? I am looking forward to going.

For those who have already found it, the charm of bisque comes as no suprise. The fast paced lunch changes to a relaxed evening out. Just steps away from the Best Western and Old House Hotel and Spa our Fresh West Coast Menu includes local seafoods,lamb, house made fresh pasta, AAA steaks and a nightly fresh sheet. fully licenced
