Excellent value for wonderful food. Opt for the seafood, particularly the seafood pasta with lobster. Even non-seafood items are very good as well (e.g. chicken parm). Large portions and great value. Friendly service.

This restaurant was recommended by our resort. We arrived close to closing time but were warmly greeted and never felt rushed. Fantastic seafood dish with pasta, we would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Very reasonably priced. Come hungry for large portions.

We enjoyed this place for really fresh seafood and lots of choice. Ask about the catch of the day because it really is. Check out the bakery counter for dessert.

We are a large restaurant and Bakery with a large menu. We provide take-out as well as full service dining, serving everything from burgers and fries to halibut, lobster, crab, etc. almost everything is made from scratch and we take much pride in our food and service. We also have a large deck. The restaurant is new, modern and clean.
