The food is great and freshly prepared. Portions are generous. Location is very special, we ate outside as the weather was awesome that day.

Cozy place and friendly staff, patrons. Short distance away historic Bonavista lighthouse and statue of John cabot who landed here in 1497.

Visited on the way back from the lighthouse. Ordered at the window (orange milkshake and pineapple ice cream soda) and they made it right there while we waited. Noticed orders with food were taking a bit longer, but we were served quickly. Nice scenery behind...the building.More

It is not a large place, but worth the wait if you love real milkshakes . The line ups on both days was long but staff moved it along and were very friendly.

This place came highly recommended and didn’t disappoint. The food was sooooo good. Fries were homemade and cooked just perfectly. Homemade cheeseburgers were tasty. Husband really enjoyed the chicken burger. We finished lunch and went out to the ice cream bar. Huge servings with a...wide variety of options. We enjoyed them on a picnic table overlooking the ocean. Great service and reasonable prices. Perfect place to stop while heading to lighthouse and Dungeon. I wouldn’t advise you to take your ice cream on the road to the Dungeon though as the roaming horses may try to get a lick ;)More

We had heard this little place had the best fish and chips in the area. We didn’t know it had the BEST in NB, NS, PEI, & NFLD!!! Delicious!!

Ok.. I was expecting this place to be just average and maybe a greasy spoon so to speak.... boy was I WRONG!!! It was some of the best fish and chips (cod) that we had while in Newfoundland! AND I have two say I have...NO idea what they do to the ice cream sundaes but it was LITERALLY the BEST we have ever had in our travels... What do they do to make it so rich and creamy???? I would so very much recommend eating here.... It is a smaller eating area so if they are crowded you will have to wait. We got lucky and just beat the rush that came in after us. There was one waitress for ALL teh tables and some how she kept up. There was a wait time to order but you know, sometimes you have to wait and it should not be held against them. She was friendly and efficientMore

Excellent for cod. Cod so fresh that it has the texture of a pad of butter as it slides down your throat. Unbelievably in texture and flavor. The view out the rear of the restaurant is breathtaking as well and worth the trip just for...an ice cream cone along with the photographic artwork hanging on the walls.More

I wanted cheap, greasy, Atlantic food. Little Dairy King delivered. I had a great fried cod sandwich and a perfect view of the coast. Legit look at that sandwich. Dungeon Provincial Park and the lighthouse are 2 minutes away, so this is a perfect stop...if you’re exploring the area. Staff were super friendly as well! Glad we chose this spot.More
