Oh! Did I say what a Dump! Such an I sore on such a beautiful beach and harbour area! It would be very nice to have a comfortable water front restaurant to watch the sunset with family or friends!

No trip would be complete without a visit to the Harbourlite for a cone! Great selection, good prices.....cool beach atmosphere! Get a cone, and walk along the harbour- what more could you ask for! Staff friendly and location perfect! It's like a "step back in time" with that old 60's diner decor...just what you look for in a trip to... More

Yes it is old. But it is clean. Service was friendly , maybe a little slow. The kady behind the counter was an older woman that reminded me of my grandmother. Nice view of the harbour. Burger and fries were good. It is not meant to be fine dining.

This is a typical beach restaurant. Great view for eating. Hamburger and hot dog place. Good selection of ice cream. They have one of the best hot dogs around and you should try it for a lunch.

Their hamburgers and french fries are great as the hamburger is locally grown and grass fed.Its not fancy but it fits in down by the beach and marina. It can... More

My aunt and I stopped for a bite to eat at this restaurant today. After reading over the menu we decide on a grilled cheese sandwich and a toasted western. We sat outside watching the people and boats go by waiting for our meal. The service was very good and staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was very... More

This little gem has been a great place to sit and ponder life, while eating a great home cooked meal! We have waited out the rain, helped catch the patio umbrellas and had great chats with the staff! A well worth visit!
