This is a cute restaurant located on West St. along the Welland Canal and a perfect spot for lunch or dinner, especially on a sunny day. Daily specials are very good. We had a seafood wrap and a steak burger. Excellent with friendly service!

I came for lunch while in town on business. Sat outside and had a nice house beer. Service was quick. Ordered Erie perch and chips. It was quick coming and very tasty. Love this little spot. Watching ships pass in the locks.

The last couple of times I have eaten here I have not felt well after. Not really clean and the owner is obnoxious.

The fish and chips looked awesome. We had the soup and salad. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the owner Greg served us. He was very nice and gave us great suggestions for places to visit. I would go back here again.

Friendly staff and good food with craft beer. Best on West. Always busy in the warmer months with their patio. Reasonably priced and a great spot to toast the passing ships and see the bridge go up and down for passing Lakers.

Food is decent, and the ambience is nice, but the two times I've been here (neither time was during Canal Days; both times the restaurant was not at all full), the delay in getting food has been ridiculous. It should not take 30-45 minutes from...More
