Best tart I ever had! Fresh cherries & fruit but had a few pits to watch out for. Meat poutine great

Didn’t expect good BBQ this close to the ocean. Food is delicious, portions look small but definitely fill you up. You can’t beat the view either. Save room for the deep fried oreos!!!

Super delicious smoked meat sandwiches and salads. We even order 1/2 a smoked turkey for thanksgiving we love it so much. Great spot on a nice day for lunch on the dock. Not cheap but worth it!

We weren't expecting to dine outside, but so glad we did. The pulled pork was delicious , the seared tuna wrap was great too. Friendly staff are always appreciated.

We had the smoked turkey sandwich and the meatloaf sandwich and both were absolutely delicious. Homemade meatloaf and thick slices of homemade turkey with fresh buns made these both delicious sandwiches. We would definitely stop by again at this little place overlooking the marina in...More
