Nostalgic decor and a great setting. Went during burger wars and saw a delicious looking burger coming out of the kitchen. Decided that was for me! Yummy! Awesome service; many check-ins to see that we were ok and very friendly. Always feel appreciated as a...customer when they ask if you are visiting and where you are from.More

We had a great family breakfast here on the patio last week. Service was friendly and prompt. Vaccination records checked thoroughly which we appreciated. Food was great and well priced. We added the chowder on to our brunch (because of course) and it was the...best we have had so far - nice and brothy rather than thick and creamy, with a great flavour. Will definitely this as a highlight meal of our vacation!More

My husband and I, along with our son and his partner, had Saturday brunch here. It's a large restaurant with a trendy vibe and modern decor. My husband and I both had the Bourbon St French Toast and it was truly remarkable! Service was good...and it was a fun experience. Perhaps next time it will be a bit warmer so we can sit on their expansive outdoor patio.More

We stopped by for some drinks and oysters. The drinks were very good. The oysters were very tasty and fresh. The food looked really good but we just did not have the time to stop and eat. The patio is nice as it is on...the waterfront. The service was excellent too.More

Service top notch, our server was Claire, she will take care of you. She is very good at what she does. Meal well I will start with the beginning. Mussels, were just ok, Baked Oysters ( I have nothing to compare it to ( We...never had Oysters before) but they were good, very good in fact. Hubby had the fried chicken sandwich, was nothing special, it was actually a little overdone. I had the fish tacos, a small piece of battered fish with a whole lotta of coleslaw. Would advise not to order. Now comes the bad part. There was a beer can rolling around the floor that no one picked up, when we left it was still there. Hubby goes to the wash room, No paper towel, and no air dryer. I go to the washroom, paper towel all over the floor, no paper towel, no air dryer. I guess no one checks the bathrooms. In this time of COVID, I would think you would be a little more diligent on keeping the bathrooms a little cleaner. Not Good.More
