We hoped to go and have a lobster dinner but it was all done unfortunately. We did have lobster in a lobster roll and in the seafood chowder which was excellent. The cod was very good

The location is breathtakingly beautuful and the homemade food wonderful. We both had the cod fish cakes with a house salad and a side of "real" fries. Everything was fresh and delicious. The service was excellent and warm. Wish we had left room for dessert.

The fried cod had a delicate batter and the fish was very flavorful. I got 2 scoops of mashed potato salad instead of fries.

Drawn by friends' recommendation and visions of a filled lobster Pool to choose from, we stopped off on the way to Twillingate. Lunch was tasty and satisfying but without lobsters - all having been consumed a mere 5 days earlier. Check availability first, but scallops...More

Cosy place where they know their seafood. Everything is very fresh. Eileen runs a tight ship. Even the desserts were good...but go for the seafood.
