We were in for dinner in late September. Server (sorry can't recall her name) was great! It wasn't too busy when we went so we didn't have to compete with anyone for our server. Great view of the harbour and main area of town from the rooftop patio. Food was only mediocre but no real complaints.

Had the whitefish dinner, it was good. Kids had nachos that were excellent. Their beer on tap was not that exciting, but it did the trick. service was fast, prices were fair. I would go again. This is the third time there in a few years and it is a good location.

Drop in for a quick one, or stay for a meal. Large patio with excellent service. In the middle of Tobermory. Limited parking on the street.

Service is very good and the food is fine and beer choices worthy. Try Neustadt's 10W-30 for a fulsome beer. And the whitefish is an absolute must.
