Went here when we saw they served ribs. The sauce on the ribs was delicious, but you don't get a lot of ribs for the money you pay. Service was OK.

Good food. Not exotic, but tasty with large portions. Friendly staff. More of a place the local population eats at, and that gives it a charm that the more touristy restaurants lack.

Thank you for your great feedback. The lamb backstrap is one of our dishes that people rave about especially if they have not had it before.

Checked on Trip Advisor for somewhere to eat in Picton. The place inside reminded us of rustic eating places in Alaska. We had the roast of the day - it was lamb, the portion was huge. The service was average but the food was good....More
