I'm so disappointed to hear our clam chowder didn't live up to your expectations during your visit. That's certainly not the norm for us, and I'm truly sorry you didn't experience the wonderful dish I know we're capable of. I hope the next time you're...More

Thank you for all of this wonderful feedback, Charles! That view really is something, isn't it? We'll keep your feedback about the fish & chips and chowder in mind moving forward so we can continue improving! We're looking forward to your next visit, Jimmy L

Lovely little rustic restaurant with a great panoramic view. I had some very succulent fresh oysters on the half shell- sweet! I also had a cup of the clam chowder, and my companion has a bread bowl of the chowder as well. Nothing special- very...More

Had the fish and chips and they were nothing special . Service okay, it was a little chilly inside but the view was breath taking. Don't eat the slaw awful, fish just had no flavor. They were small pieces and just didn't enjoy it.More

We were a walk-in on Christmas night, so Hobson's choice! We accepted the hour wait, and the place was heaving with friendly people - as you'd expect on Dec 25th. The food was sadly much less memorable. Bashed-out fish with little finesse and less taste....More

We loved the fresh seafood selection and the prices. Plus they have a hearty senior menu that won't leave you hungry for under $15. The grilled salmon with rice pilaf and choice of cabbage salad or potato with sour cream and chives is my choice....More
