I had the peanut noodle salad and partner had the fih and chips! Both were very good and went well with a few Ukee Slams! Staff were friendly, efficient and very attentive...and we loved the french doggo out front!

After a great whale watching trip, we were cold and damp. A bowl of the recommended clam chowder really hit the spot. it was chunky and robust without being too fishy. Very enjoyable. Odd that all inside tables have no view onto the harbour.More

Great food, great service, Blackrock rooms have something to be desired. Rooms should be priced about $80 max.
