After our first dinner here of the most wonderful scallops, we made a reservation for the next night. We pre-ordered the lobster stuffed with scallops as it takes a while for cooking. It was so worth it, just perfectly cooked, looked wonderful and just melt in the mouth perfect. So, make a reservation and order the lobster and scallops. You... More

We had a total of 3 meals during our stay. The food was OK. Nothing to rave about and nothing really bad either.

We just had our dinner here after we arrived. We wished we would have been earlier so that we could have enjoyed the activity on the water and around the docks. The food was very good.

We went just for scallops and were not disappointed. Nicely presented, just pan seared, fresh and delicious.

Food was simple and straightforward. I had steak and scallops with a side salad. I found it somewhat overpriced for the quality/presentation. Drink selection was limited - it would be nice to see some Nova Scotia craft beer on the menu.

Located in cute downtown Digby on picturesque Digby harbor, only a couple scenic miles to the ferry. Went for drinks in back with great view. Beautiful day, sitting out. Nice service. Met some nice people. What's not to love?

Very good seafood dining. Nothing exceptional on the menu but all the food was cooked well. Do not go when it is busy, not enough wait staff.

The setting of this restaurant is unbeatable with its spectacular views. The staff is very friendly. The food was average and expensive. There is a downstairs casual restaurant which looked better to be honest. We will definitely return. it does look like the best spot in town. Be sure to take a walk on the boardwalk...
