The chowder was so good and the view was gorgeous but unfortunately the waitress had to clean with a very strong. CLeaner like Pinesol and it ruined our meal as the fumes permeated our chowder. Not good to use these chemical cleaners in 2017 and especially not when customers are eating.

This restaurant has an amazing view. The decor is quaint and the staff is friendly. I can recommend the poutine. Absolutely try for a window seat overlooking the beach!

Have eaten here many times,and will again. Always have a great meal at a reasonable price. The "Ice Tea" is freshly made, not out of a can. "REALLY GOOD". Had family visiting at 2 different times this summer from Ontario, so we brought them here. They loved the meal and the view. It is one of our favourite places to... More

We were not disappointed by the seafood. But, we were not wowed by it either. I was expecting a little extra in the preparation and presentation for the price. Many people eat here, there are not many choices in the area. My wife really liked here pumpkin roll; I was disappointed with the fried pastry.

This place used to be great. It is still fairly good but the quality has gone down a little with prices going up. No longer worth the drive out aside from the sunset view. Great for lunch while hanging out on the beach.

I came here to eat with some friends, for dinner. We were staying at the nearby motel. We liked the live music. It wasn't too crowded. The nest day we also ate here. There was a buffet, at which I stuffed myself. The food was excellent.

Decent food, but nothing special. It's proximity to the restaurant is nice. No vegetarian options, few healthy ones.

Thoroughly accommodated as a large group. Warm and friendly. The staff were helpful in providing anything we asked for. The prices are responsible and the view of the beach was stunning.

Stopped in on a whim as we were just driving around the area. Had heard great things about this restaurant so decided to give it a try. The restaurant is large, clean and well maintained with large windows overlooking the stunning Mavillette Beach. The waitress was friendly and the menu had a nice variety..I did notice they offer kid's and... More
