Showed up here without a sweet clue as to where I was. Blown away by atmosphere, service and food. Had the largest most delicious scallops! Returned the following night for dessert! Found my way home but eager to return.

The food is fantastic, the service impeccable and the location gorgeous. I stayed 2 nights - rooms don't have ensuites but the price adequately reflects this. The food is fresh, elegantly presented and delightful to taste.

This is not the fanciest, nor the most sophisticated, but it is by far the tastiest, the most authentic restauraunt in the Maritimes. I simply love coming here and rejoince every year when it reopens. Hats off to Sara and Andrew for pulling this off....More

Charming location, quality food, great prices. Thanks for another great meal, we drove from Ontario and it was the best meal we had on the east coast!

By far, the best chowder I have ever had in the world. It had large pieces of seafood (scallop, shrimp, fish), fresh cream/butter, and a bright array of herbs! Better than any New England clam chowder I have eaten in my 32 years on this...More

I'd like to know the corresponding prices (current - June 2015) with the menus. It helps to know the expenses involved when convincing friends to 'go-the-distance' for good food.

The prices posted recently are in line with what we got. They change menu every 4 weeks or so..but I doubt the prices change. SUCH good food. Definitely worth the trip!
