We went to The Old Loft for a late lunch after hiking the Tablelands. We split a plate of toutons with molasses, they were tasty. I had the clubhouse platter with fries and dressing and my husband had the hamburger platter. The service was friendly...and we enjoyed our food.More

We had a wonderful dinner at The Old Loft Restaurant in Woody Point, as well as a picnic lunch to enjoy at the Woody Point lighthouse. The atmosphere, including water views and deck seating will not disappoint, as well as the quality of the food...and options available. Book tonight!More

Seafood is excellent, especially the halibut. Cooked to perfection, not over cooked. The ambience of an old fishing loft adds to the experience. Give this place a try

Excellent food. We had the fisherman’s platter and the cod melted in your mouth. The shrimp and scallops were also delicious. This was by far the best cooked seafood I’ve eaten at any restaurant. The restaurant was unique with barrel chairs. Very clean establishment. If...I visit again, I will definitely go back.More

Always make it a point to visit the Old Loft each summer. Went there again and was not disappointed. We ordered the cod chowder as an appetizer, and I had the seafood platter, while my husband had the salmon. The cod chowder left a little...to be desired - not the best I’ve ever had but still yummy and filling! A generous serving as well. The seafood platter was absolutely delicious. Everything was well cooked and flavorful. Always love visiting and look forward to the next visit.More

The seafood chowder was very good.The seafood plater/mix was also great, allowed to substitite fries for salad! Good service in a rustic building on the waterfront. Prices reasonable, a good place to eat.

The group of 8 on the walking food tour, ate here. We had the pan fried cod with scrunchins on the side - delicious, The service and atmosphere were good and the waitress very friendly. No hesitation about getting the food ready for us. The...only issue was the sun shining in 2 of our group member's eyes. We had to use a serviette taped to the window to block the sun - oh well.More

Nice menu options, not the usual Newfoundland grub. Very tasty food. Unique atmosphere. Somewhat inattentive service. Girlfriend had the kale salad and fish soup, which she thought was great. I had the seafood lasagna, but the serving size was small. I would have rated the...restaurant higher if the portions were larger and the service was better.More
