The seafood casserole is a waste of money for what you get. The portion size wasn't even enough to feed a toddler. Only had 1 small scallop, 1 small shrimp and 2 bite size pieces of haddock and 2 bites of potato. That's it for...$20.More

We ate at this restaurant one afternoon with another couple. It has a great view on the beach adjacent to the sea caves. It’s not a fancy place but the food is very good. You place your order at the counter and they bring it...to your table. There is an inside dining area and an outside patio dining area. My wife ordered the lobster roll and I the clam platter. The other couple ordered the clam platter and fish and chips. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The prices were reasonable.More

I had the fish and chips.
The fries, which were fresh cut, were perfect. Seasoned just right, perfectly crispy and crunchy outside and soft inside. Best french fries i have ever had anywhere. The haddock was lightly battered and crispy, not greasy at all, and...the fish inside it was perfectly cooked, beautiful quality. Best battered fish I've ever had. I enjoyed it so much, I ate the fish, and I bagged up the rest of the fries I couldn't eat to have as a snack later (yes, they were that good). Then I realized that if they made the best fish and chips, I had to try the chowder while I was there. So, I ordered the chowder to go. I had it later that evening, maybe a couple hours later. It was still warm, I wondered if I needed to reheat it, so I gave it a taste... and to heck with heating it, because I was eating it. And I couldn't stop eating it, because each mouthful was delightful, with perfectly cooked seafood morsels and textures and flavours that just knocked me off my feet. Every bite was perfect. And, yes, it is seriously THE BEST CHOWDER I have ever had - eating that chowder was a spiritual experience. I will go back for more. Hats off to the staff and to the chef.More

Stopped in for a meal after some sightseeing. Ordered 2 x 2 piece fish and chips, 1 x 3 piece fish and chips and a fried clam platter. Way too much food for 2 adults and 2 kids - but very very good. Not too...much batter, and the fries were perfect.
Not sure if it was bc of the pandemic - but had some sticker shock when I went to pay and the price with a 20% tip was $109. Happy to support the local economy though.
Would go again for sure.More

Went there 3 days ago July 2, 2020 to pick up 2 bowls to go. Got back to the cottage to find a bowl of minced fish in what looked and tasted like dishwater with a fishy taste..
