There was a line up to get a table. We were first on the list and it took about 1/2 hr to get a table. Quick service to get out menu and a drink, but after ordering or meal, it slowed down big time. I had scallops which were just okay. Bland. No bun or bread to start. A choice... More

The staff here were very polite and well prepared. We had fish and chips with a view of the water. The atmosphere is casual and friendly , very unpretentious and the restaurant is nice and bright with bug windows

One of the most amazing fish and chips meals I have had ever. Service was very slow, but worth the wait. The portions are huge and food is delicious and very fresh. View of the harbour is outstanding as well.

If you want a good dinner or lunch in Trinity - DO go to the dock marina restaurant. We had lobster in July and it was perfection. The seared scallops are also wonderful - and the chowder is also very tasty. The historic old warehouse is spacious with good views of the water and the service friendly and efficient. The... More

We wanted a more casual dinner and heard the fish and chips here were great. For starters we had cod tongues and calamari. Never had cod tongues before so hard to judge but they were ok. The calamari was on the chewy side and I would avoid. We both had fish and chips. Large portions. The batter was fairly light... More

The setting is great, overlooking the water where the tours come in. My cod tongues consisted of 4 or 5 very small tongues (some of which appeared as if they had been cut in 2), which was small even for an appetizer. Not worth the price!! The rest of the meal was standard, nothing exceptional. We were ther 3 years... More
