Seating on various sized tables of 2 through 8, where each table was invited to the buffet table in turn. Pretty basic items; rolls, Caesar salad, coleslaw, potato salad, macaroni salad, three types of potatoes (mashed, shredded, and hash brown casserole-style), chicken wrap, baked ham in a sweet sauce and a baked chicken in BBQ-style sauce. Assorted dessert squares, spice... More

We had included a visit to this restaurant on our itinerary as we had read about it in the CAA magazine. When we checked in it at our B&B (All Seasons which I have reviewed as well and highly recommend), we were delighted to find that the restaurant was a five minute walk down the road. We had made a...

We enjoyed the view and friendly service. The food was a treat - locally caught and prepared seafood was first class. Even though the restaurant was busy, the staff still made time to chat and answer questions about the food and the area. Reservations highly recommended.
