Good food, delightful staff and a great view too. Easy to find right on the harbour front. On a chilly May evening a warm welcome was great. Prices to suit all.

On a very wet day here we finished a walking tour of the town for a lunch in less than an hour .
We had a lobster roll coffee and soft drink quickly served up , plenty of lobster in the filing without loads of mayonnaise and other fillings with a small side salad , good value quick service and restaurant seemed very full and popular .
Unlikely to be back but would try this for lunch for sure , restaurant is on a upper level with a view over the water .

Thank jeff B

We choose to eat here because I looked busy & had the best view in town!

But your paying for your view ! Service was poor ! Food was ok, took the fish taco’s because I’m obsessed with fish taco’s and I was disappointed! It was good but something was missing like avocados!

Surf & turf was good & the muscles!

Although, I would return since the view is that great & the beer selection is large !

Excellent choice to eat your meal here. Close to Rum Runner Inn. Service was prompt and food was good and filling. Elevator for accessibility. Great view of the harbor and the whale skull. There is a marine museum located also in this building. We did not visit it as it was closed when we got into town.

Gluten-free options are limited and the seating in the restaurant is very cramped. The food is really good (a little pricey) though and the staff is friendly!
