We were taking the long route back into St. John's and decided to stop in Dildo for fun. It was kind of around lunch time so we decided to go here since it was nearby. I ordered the cod bites, which I thought would be kinda small since I wasn't that hungry, but it ended up being quite a lot... More

On the water, friendly service, eat inside or out. We came for the fish and chips and it was outstandingly good. They do have many other things on the menu, of course.

Stopped at the Dory for dinner as it was right on the water and you have a great view of the boats in the marina and the bay. We had a nice light meal and really enjoyed the Manhattan clam chowder and a salad. The cup of chowder was large and had a nice flavor and lots of seafood so... More

On or way to the Hearts Content Cable Station, we dropped into the Dildo Dory for a meal. It is in an excel location and the facility was very appealing as we had been here a couple of years before and weren’t disappointed, so we decided to try them again. The fish was good, the portions properly sized and the... More

Many fried things. Not much in the way of vegetables. Entirely lacklustre. The deck is great: lovely view of harbour and bay. Go for a drink and maybe some mussels.

Wide menu - we had the side salad and a split pea soup (with a delicious fluffy biscuit) to start then a main course salad and a cod burger. Couple of beers and good service from Glynis, sitting outside on the deck. Not gourmet, but hit the spot.

Awful slow service, casual seaside ambiance, mediocre food. Mixed red white clam chowder interesting, but not much seafood. Interesting part is the large clams in the red which tasted like leather. Squid fishy, cod Au gratin was nice, with a rich cheese sauce. Biscuits were good. Blueberry wine unimpressive, sticky pudding ok, hot and like a crude version of a... More
