Went for drinks and light food. Familiar with NS chain. Place was quiet on a Sunday night, but good entertainment.

Excellent service, even better food. Easily makes the top 5 ‘Newfoundland fish cakes served with brown beans’. We even managed to catch some live music while we were eating, and ended up staying over an hour after our meal to enjoy the local artist.
