Whenever you want to find a great restaurant, you ask a local or you check Tripadvisor. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. The seafood is without a doubt fresh. You gotta have the fresh oysters, but the extra large oysters are not always available. Also worth trying is the lobster rolls. Visited back in July 2015. Gotta go back.

Ate here twice out on the deck overlooking the water. Fresh seafood, well prepared. Oysters were divine!

We were driving around the island and stopped here for lunch. Again we had a lobster roll, this time with potato salad. We also shared a bowl of seafood chowder. Everything was homemade, and that in itself made it special.

Ate here in October - food was extremely good and service excellent - once again ate mussels (four nights in a row at local restaurants). This time the mussels were an entree - just wish that the restaurant offered a good hardy bread to go with the wonderful seafood

A wonderful view, a sunny day on the deck, and some fresh tasty scallops. Nice wine to go with it. Fantastic. All around were having delicious food and no complaints. Service is efficient. You can also go to their 'shop' across the bridge and buy fresh seafood to take away if you want.

Couldn't have been better! Lovely spot. We ate out on the terrace, but inside was full of ambiance and local colour. Beautifully fresh seafood, good service.

We visited in October, close to the end of their season so it wasn't busy. It was a great experience, the service was fast, the meal hot and tasty. We shared an appetizer of lobster stuffed mushroom caps which was a great lead in to our entrees. Both of our seafood entrees were presented in a colourful and appetizing fashion.... More

Stopped here 10 years ago and have been dying to return. The decor is functional and the staff very friendly and efficient. An addition has doubled the seating which was fortunate since the place was packed. We ordered small oysters and watched while they were opened. They were fresh, cold and delicious. We also ordered a small basket of fried... More

Stopped in since there wasn't anything open in Cavendish due to the off season. The sweet potatoe fries were ok, but they weren't great. Service was good tho. The place over looks the water which is nice.

This spot has been around for some time. It caters to a good mix of locals, summer folks and tourists. The food is consistently good but the portions seem to consistently dwindle in size over the years. Quick informed and friendly service but it's a tired place which could use a bit of a makeover.
