It was a cute place, I had the lobster Poutine and fried scallops. I wouldn't order it again. I'm guessing it's alright for a quick bite.

extremely disappointed w hot lobster (their specialty). it was mostly lobster sauce poured over two slices of bread. yes the price of lobster was $14/lb at the time but maybe they should've warned that they were cutting back on the meat.

Once the "dressed down" version of the superb Harris' Seafood Restaurant, Yarmouth's long gone fine dining seafood mecca, the Quick 'n Tasty was run for years by Clara Harris. The current owners knew a winner when they saw it and have made very few changes....More

This diner style restaurant is popular with both the locals and tourists. It offers typical diner menu items but specializes in Seafood selections. Myself and the two other guests had the hot Lobster Sandwich that comes with fries and coleslaw. It was delicious!

Stopped for a quick lunch in the afternoon. Wasn't busy but service was quite slow. Seafood chowder was good, not as good as some days. Clams weren't that fresh. Meringue pie was tasty but not "mile high" as in past years...
