Here to have a meal with my family, ate the French Onion Soup; it was really salty so I couldn't actually eat the whole bowl. My mouth was pretty dry afterward. Fish & chips were ok though.

Excellent place to go. Outdoor patios and many different rooms for special occasions. The food is great and so is the service. Prices are reasonable.

Great lunch with an associate. Service was excellent and the little change requested on the daily special was accommodated in a friendly manner. You won't find a better lunch anywhere for under 10 bucks I assure you.

We recently had our club book for Sunday breakfast, and although we had many more show up than planned, Bud's crew handled it very well. There was pleanty of coffee, and lots of good food. The service was excellent! Love it!

Breakfast was good enough, though it took a long time, considering they weren't busy. Location is convenient near the waterfront.

"on the bay" is on the harbor / marina off the St Lawrence. Pub type, but nice enough restaurant. We had lunch. Food was good. Well prepared. One order could not be prepared because they had run out. Not a problem for us, but waitress gave us both free desert later. Unexpected, but very nice.

Very cool place to go for dinner with friends and have a few drinks. Dinner was ok no complaints at all, but nothing special.
