Our team had ordered a crab boil and the lady kept bringing different items over a period of time. There were no plates, fork of knife just plain table cloth and items were dumped on the table directly. It started with chicken wings, potato wedges, cron, carrots, mussels, shrimps and carbs. It went on for ever. They even provided bibs.

I was told of this place by a friend and was pleasantly surprised. I ordered the cod and halibut combination, deep fried and battered, although I could have gone with a light flour coating or breading. The fish was very good, cooked just to the right amount, and was tender and tasty. In retrospect, I think I may have gone... More

We honestly just go for the crab legs. They are decent quality, not fresh from the ocean but good. It is served with a good portion of veggies and for the most part, I would say service is excellent. One server does need a lesson in etiquette, we request to not sit in their section.

Really enjoyed the crab stuffed mushrooms, the prompt service and the "waterfront" decor so much we went back for breakfast a week later and loved it too!

Service was awesome, fast friendly and a good knowledge of the menu. The menu was a lot of frozen battered seafood items but the fish and chips was good. Bit overpriced for the quality of food and portion size.

Went for my first visit for lunch with a few friends. Ended up grabbing their lunch special since I didn't feel like spending $25 for 2 pc of fish and chips. My special consisted of a crab melt open face sandwich, 2 fish cakes, and a Caesar salad. I was quite happy with the flavors and portion ($14). The salad... More

We been to the restaurant a few times with small groups of co-workers. The wait staff are very friendly and food is excellent; prices are on par with what to expect in Fort McMurray.
