Our 'go to' burger pub in Shelburne. Their Galley Burger is a hearty helping of 'delish' that is a reliably good taste from visit to visit. It's close and easy which helps as well. Home cut fries are cut fairly small and that adds to the crisp-ish texture we like. Add some malt and salt to taste...yum!!

Nothing "prepackaged" here. More than just "pub food". Great atmosphere, excellent service! The burgers are awesome, as well as their "lobster poutine" which is a must try!

Have eaten here a few times and everything we tried has been most satisfactory. The service is a bit slow but worth it to get nice fresh cooked food. Still items on the menu we want to try and we will go back.

Staying at a local motel for the night and we were wandering around Shelburne on a Saturday evening. The one restaurant we tried to get into was booked for the entire evening, so we started searching. Found this little gem on Water Street. Very good service and very good food. We ordered the seafood chowder and it was the best... More

First time eating haddock and it was delicious with honey mustard. I skipped the fries and had the beet salad with goat chees. Perfect! Excellent food and friendly service. Evening jams with local musicians are a blast!!!

My friend and I stopped in for a quick snack and a glass of wine. I must say ... You couldn't ask for a more welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. We instantly felt like family. The appetizers were soooo good we stayed for supper and got the lobster poutine and chicken burger. My friend is a lobster poutine fanatic and rated... More

Really enjoyed this very simple little pub. They were somewhat busy, with a kid's birthday party going on on the other side of the room. Our waitress was efficient and nice. My wife ordered the fish and chips, which she said was good. I could not resist ordering the donair nachos. Two of my favorite foods combined for the first... More

My fiance and I came here for supper with his parents. It was not crowded at all. The wait staff was a bit quiet but still very nice. The food was a great portion and it was delicious. I had the half amd half haddock and shrimp with the beet salad. Absolutely delicious!!
