When it comes to Harbour Grace, your dining options are quite limited. Most people will drive the extra distance to eat in the nearby communities of Carbonear or Bay Roberts where there are more options. That being said, Kay's is a great choice if you are in the area! There's nothing fancy about the restaurant itself. It's just one of... More

Dining at Kay's felt as if we were in an episode of The Twilight Zone. When we walked in, we were greeted by the unwavering stares of the locals. This continued throughout the entirety of our meal. There was no one on the counter when we arrived, and waited approximately ten minutes before catching the server who happened to walk... More

Kays has been perfect every time. Had supper tonight with my husband and daughter.....large portions, but we ate every bite. The fish is awesome....huge thick pieces of fresh cod, and the batter is so crisp it shatters, mmmmmm. The fries were crispy right to the bottom of the huge pile. Great gravy on the side too. Great service even with... More

After driving through villages along the Newfoundland coast all morning we stopped for some lunch. It wsa a good choice although the service was very slow due to only having one server on staff that day. There were locals eating there and we were the only people 'from away' - it's often good to choose a place where locals eat... More

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to review via TripAdvisor. I'm glad you enjoyed your lunch please accept my apologies for making you wait! Many small businesses in the area are short staffed due to many people out west for the bigger dollars. Hoping you enjoy the remainder of your vacation here in Newfoundland. Cheers! More

There is not a lot of "fine dining" in Harbour Grace. This is a down home type place where you get a good meal, with friendly local people, at a good price. Everything was good to very good. Chicken was a little dry. My son loved his soup. If you don't set your expectations unrealistically high, you will be pleased.... More
