As for this group gathering to celebrate a retirement dinner, with many chatty guests, the locale was fantastic. Much visiting went on , and our waitress was completely untroubled by it all.As far as I know, I alone changed tables before , during and after dinner, about 6 times , and she found me reliably every time. The meal, "Extreme"ly... More

It is definitely a small place although on Wednesday it was not necessary to make a reservation as there were only 4 tables booked. I would assume if it was on the weekend, that might be a good idea as they only have 7 tables The Chef's menu (Tue -Sat) is $25.00 and only appealed to one person who had... More

We were here on a Friday night and we enjoyed it. Small and personable. Enjoyable menu with good homemade food. My girlfriend had the Nova Scotia lobster and I had the pork steak (both were the $25 specials that came with soup or salad and dessert) I felt it was a great price for what we received. The server was... More

Went to this restaurant last night and was not disappointed. The set menu was excellent with a Xmas theme and the main menu was exciting. I can definitely recommend the lobster tail and steak (surf and turf) as it was cooked to perfection. You need to book as when we were there walk ins were politely turned away. Excellent wine...

Hard to be any more unassuming on the outside while serving excellent fare inside in an intimate, simple, and homey atmosphere. Service is super friendly, menu is varied for any taste, and the 10(!) different, delicious desserts were made on-site. My wife had the salmon, I had the stuffed pork. Both were delicious. We came here with a party of... More

Very small but pleasant table settings. We were in the corner table so had the backs of the people to us at the next table. Busy evening, we arrived at 6 pm and by 7 pm there was only a table of 2 empty. They only had one person serving and busing. She was pleasant but did not keep our... More

I really enjoy this restaurant and the food is delicious and the staff is super friendly. It is a small restaurant and perfect for a nice night out. I would recommend that you make a reservation as some nights can be busier than others. I enjoyed how the chef came out at the end of our meal to personally asked... More

The meals all four of us had were tasty and reasonably priced. I had also been there previously with friends for lunch and the food then had been above par as well. Plan to make reservations as this is a very small restaurant; small but worthwhile.

We live in the area and decided to try to little gem out. It's hidden and we often wondered when we drove by... Today we called and they were packed to the doors with a large party. We asked if we could come a little later and when we arrived a table was there waiting for us. I had the... More

This was our family's second trip to Extreme Restaurant and it was just as memorable as the first. I enjoyed the French Onion soup with their encrusted fish main and had the peach pavlova for dessert. The quality of the food is top notch and the level of care of the chef is outstanding. Definitely a diamond in the rough,... More
