We eat here regularly, and are delighted to see fish tacos and potato skins added to the specials menu. Both are delicious! The red cabbage and green onion slaw really *make* the fish taco. My husband also enjoyed his chili cheese dog!

Had their Surf and Turf burger (beef topped with lobster) and it was A+. Big portion for the price and the fries were fresh and seasoned perfectly. If you are in Shelburne you definitely try this place.

Friendly service in a pub atmosphere. The high point was the best fish and chips we had in a two touring holiday of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. I would go back to Shelburne just for the fish and chips!

Fabulous seafood chowder, huge chunks of haddock, lobster, shrimp and scallops in a wonderful creamy broth. Great service. Looks like nothing from the street, but once inside the food will keep you coming back. It's a little noisy, though worth it.
