We enjoyed the decor, the food was served hot, and our server Annick was attentive and personable. We will be back.

On my own for supper and decided to get fish tacos from Ship’s Company. Oh my goodness! Absolutely delicious! Very flavourful and beautifully presented. The fish was cooked to perfection and the slight punch of heat from the salsa mixed with the crisp veggies, was...a hit with me! The garden salad on the side was gorgeous! Packed with colourful fruit, veggies and nuts, this could have been a satisfying meal on its own. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere clean and inviting. I will certainly be returning to try more off their scrumptious looking menu.More

So took the family for 🍔 ♥️. Message at the entrance made us aware that wait times were probably happening as they were ‘short staffed’ …the wait was so worth it. Great atmosphere, delicious food (as per usual) and staff that were very accommodating! Prices...didn’t break the bank! Only wish they were open year round! Congratulations on team efforts during trying times and on another note, I was saddened by poor behaviour of another patron…his disturbing behaviour became life lesson on how to NOT behave.More

I don't understand how a place like this has a decent rating on Tripadvisor, let alone the number one ranked spot in Cavendish. We ate there August 2nd and the service was miserable, the food was edible, and the atmosphere was about that of a...McDonalds. The Ship's Company Pub & Galley is located at the end of a very touristy feeling strip mall of sorts, and is simply a large rectangular dining room with a small bar in one corner. The dining room is filled with the cheapest sets of tables and chairs money can buy. Our table felt like it was going to collapse and I could see the staples (not nails or screws) holding it together through a large gap where peice of the table was falling off. During our visit the servers, all roughly 19 years old, were huddling around the bar chatting and certainly not re-filling our waters or updating us on the status of our meals which took 55 minute to arrive. The food was fine. Not good, not interesting, just fine. I could go on but you probably get the jist of my impression of this place by now. After consuming a meal there, famished from an hour long wait, amused by the comical lack of service and inevitably doomed to suffer some sort of gastrointestinal malady from all this, I am left with one question...How is this place getting so many good reviews?... If you end up eating at this place and have a similar experience to mine, or you simply don't think this is the best restaurant in Cavendish as this TripAdvisor page would have you believe, PLEASE REVIEW IT, so that more people aren't fooled like us into wasting an evening and their hard earned money, at this boring, slow, loud, rectangle that sells "food".More

Recently had supper here and sat out on the patio which is sunny and spacious. All table could use an umbrella as the afternoon sun hit the patio directly. All the food we ordered was really good: seafood platter, seafood pasta, coconut shrimp. Gave four...stars as it took a really long time for our food to come. But hey, it’s been a difficult year in the service industry so happy to be a little extra patient these days. Friendly service to boot!More

No stairs that I could see. The washroom looked to be accessible.
