They had a variety of ales. Liked the scallops with fennel and bacon. The Caesar salad was my first introduction to That Dutchman's cheese and we need to visit him on our next trip.

Cozy spot with a warm vibe. My Blackened Haddock was excellent and the veggie selection 10/10 though my beets could have been a little less al dente. We would not hesitate to return.

So average... My seafood pasta had seafood in it, but lacked taste and flavor. My husband had Mediterranean chicken which was just alright, very basic. The pretend to cook with a twist, but did not quite make it. Friendly service is a plus.

Located in a small town was lucky to find an unpretentious restaurant with sophistication. Nice ambience with art for sale on walls. Have had both lunch and dinner there and both times excellent food. Give this little gem a try if you are in Parrsboro.
