Had the best meal at the Grubstake! The chowder was 9 1/2 out of 10 - delicious. The pan fried haddock was cooked perfectly - not overcooked like so many restaurants. Would highly recommend.

We had fish & chips and the kids had chicken strips. The fries were so good, I hoped that the kids wouldn't eat them all so I could finish them! The kids loved the wood carvings inside.
