Popped in for a quick dinner while attending Celtic Colours. Great salad meal and dessert. The food was fresh and the service good. Great chowder.

Here for the fall colours - and stopped for a quick lunch. She had a bowl of root vegetable soup, I had a beef dip - both excellent and served quickly and with flair. Good prices and very nice staff. We'll return!

We had seafood of course which was great with some chilled white wine. Having spent the day at the beach, this was a perfect little stop to have dinner before heading home. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the wine.

Tried out this place on a sunny August Friday afternoon after checking out Mabou. We were very happy with our choice to eat here. I loved sitting out on the wooden deck enjoying the flower and nice weather. And I popped into the nice gift...More
