Horribly overpriced food. Lobster roll was tiny, made with a wonder bread bun, a piece of lettuce, some mayo and ice-cold unseasoned lobster. Mozzarella sticks tasted like a store brand frozen just oven cooked. Overall lacking flavour and ridiculous pricing for the portions/unseasoned food. Would...More

This place was recommended to us, and it was a great evening. We had not had lobster before, and we were very well looked after. The whole thing was made into a real event, with the other regulars in the bar also taking a friendly...More

The spinach salad was very fresh and tasty once the raw mushrooms were removed and the dressing was applied.. The pan fried sole was very fresh & delicious, but the ordered home fries turned out to be just not very good French fries, which made...More

Our food was the worst I think I've ever had at a restaurant...ever. There was a big sign outside saying they were playing Acadian music. That was not the case. It turned out to be a guy singing overdone country and rock music. The entire...More
