This might be the only restaurant in Red Bay. Drive right out to the water and you can't miss it. Very friendly staff with several Labrador/Newfoundland dishes. I recommend the fish and chips but please have dessert they use local berries and its amazing.

Combination restaurant, gift shop, etc. The place to be in Red Bay. It was quite crowded with locals and visitors on a nice Sunday afternoon. Yes, we left some money in the gift shop as they have a decent selection of items.

The restaurant is at the end of the road by the Basque Whaling Site. Great location! The food was great too - the fish and chips were homemade and tasty!

We ate here twice, had the fish and chips which were fresh, crispy and delicious. I'd have to say I did grab a club sandwich for lunch and I suspect, like the sandwich, the other menu items were just average run of the mill.

Our best Fish & Chips ever! The cod was excellent, not enjoyed fish this much in a very, very long time. Their coleslaw was unbelievably good, I usually get to eat my husbands coleslaw, but this time he was reaching for mine. I wish I...More
