Went to try the award winning chowder, which needed some salt to balance the taste. The irony was not lost amongst us. That being said, tried two versions of this mussels, both EXCELLENT.

We stopped in for a bite for dinner. Food was very good, as was the service. Really enjoyed eating out on the patio overlooking the waterfront. Tiny place, but had a homey feeling about it.

You will have a peek-a-boo view of the waterfront and the outdoor back patio is sunny and hot, so bring a hat. Food is good and full of flavour and the kitchen caters well to those who have food allergies such as dairy.
