Our group of 41 had lunch here and although and although it was okay it was rather ordinary and lacked the Newfoundland charm we had gotten used to on our tour.

We stayed at this poor excuse for a motel in Sept 2016. We had a combo for two and would have done better with a box of cat food and a jug of milk. The worst excuse for chinese food ever !!! We took a room for the night, if ya want to call it that.The place smelled like bed... More

I was very pleasantly surprised at the improvement in both the updates to the restaurants décor, menu, and the quality of the food. It had been many years since I visited the restaurant, I will go again soon.

My wife and I stopped in here for Sunday lunch. The popular dish is the Jig's Dinner / set price of $12 & change. Wow what a HUGE dinner they serve, so much so it takes steady hands to deliver it to the table. I had no worries about poorly rendered Salt Beef as it had been very well watered.... More

After being very disappointed with our stay at the attached motel, and... More

We have visited Fong's on many occasions and have always enjoyed our meals. We stick to Canadian dishes mostly but the fish is our favorite. Generous portions for a very reasonable price! Friendly staff and usually a short wait for your meal.
