Most popular are our BBQ items, fresh from the grill and our home cut fries. Find us in the middle of Telegraph Cove. More info on our website. We open for May long weekend in May and normally stay open until the third weekend of September. May, June & September we are open 8 - 6, July & August 7 - 8!
