We totally enjoyed our 3 dinners here, the food was delicious, the wait staff was friendly, fun, and efficient. Kudos to the management for their training, specifically their hiring of a young woman with a physical challenge. The view of the harbour was wonderful.

What more can I say? We had the most delicious food washed down with a selection of local beers. Lovely ambiance sitting out on the wharf, with friendly, quick service even though the restaurant was very busy.

This restaurant is upstairs from the museum. It has some very interesting and beautiful fisherman decors. The ocean view is quite nice, too. I ordered fish fries(not fish and chips), and it's way too oily. In addition, the serving is pretty large, and it's difficult...More
