We had lunch here twice this summer, and found it most enjoyable both times. The staff was attentive, enthusiastic and served us promptly and professionally. Portions were large. We tried, lobster reubens, oyster sandwich, chicken club and beef flatbread. All of us liked everything. Out...of town guests were impressed with the beautiful views of Northport everywhere they looked. The second time we came they had only one beer on draft, but it was the last day of the season. Will be back next summer.More

Ate there a few nights ago while visiting PEI. Wonderful atmosphere. Service always great and food wonderful. I had flatbread I changed meat in flatbread from steak to chicken with n problem. A must place to eat in Western PEI. Right on the wharf.

My FIL lives on PEI and we wanted to take him for dinner. He said this was a nice place, casual dress and he was right! We had fresh oysters ( pricey but worth it, they don’t come fresher) and the curried mussels...also delicious. All...3 of us had the lobster roll, not too much mayo and celery so the lobster was the star! Fries and Caesar salad were both good. Wine list is short but acceptable. Would definitely return large windows, great view and excellent service.More

STAY AWAY! Teenage to early 20's servers who are rude and slow. Food was not good at all. No management present on property. Nice views though!

Restaurant offers both inside and patio seating. We had made a reservation for 6 and upon arrival we were quickly greeted and seated. A limited menu however everyone found something to their liking from scallops, seafood chowder, etc. Our server was courteous and responsive to...our needs throughout our dinner. Food was tasty and moderately priced.More

We ate dinner here after coming for lunch but they were closed. We had mussels as an app and they were delicious. I ordered the fried oyster sandwich for dinner. It came on a huge bun and a ton of lettuce and four of the...tiniest oysters you ever saw. Not a sandwich. I never complain about food but I did. The waitress brought me 5 more oysters but was emphatic the sandwich was normal. This is not normal. It was horrid for $15 to have a bun and lettuce sandwich. Heads up!More

Staying at Mill River Resort and decided to take a short drive to dine here for supper. Welcoming, friendly and attentive service and an excellent, filling meal. Crab dip app (delicious!) followed by fish and chips for our boys and pan fried haddock with rice...and additional side for ourselves. Beautiful view an added bonus. Wise to make a reservation if dining after 6pm. The place really filled up (also a good sign).More

Stopped off for a quick lunch on a Tuesday afternoon. Yes it is a large room and it was not busy but the sign at the front says "Seat yourself", which we did. We were promptly attended by our server who offered menus. We took...a couple of minutes but my wife had her heart set on some oysters which she ordered. I had the Seafood Chowder and Mussels appetizer size done in the wine, garlic sauce. As usual on the Island the chowder was most excellent, thick, creamy & full of seafood. The mussels were fresh and very good. My wife said the fresh shucked oysters were also very good. We were seated by the large windows overlooking the bay so quite scenic. All in all a very enjoyable experience.More

We ate here for our anniversary - in hindsight maybe not the best choice for a special celebration as the menu was not terribly varied. However the food that we did order was quite good. My choice would be to give this restaurant a 3.5...out of 5. This is a large restaurant and when you first walk in, you cannot help but notice the vast open space. I think that there are normally shops that are open on each side of the entrance but they were not yet open when we came here. You go up a few steps to the main floor where the dining area is located. There are lots of windows and the place is really well lit with sunlight. Unfortunately it was very cold the night we were there. Our waitress was quite new and could not answer our questions about the menu. She did her best to get all the answers and help us as much as possible. We found her to be very pleasant and courteous. We ordered the mussels and bacon wrapped scallops as appetizers. The mussels were delicious - nice and plump served with melted butter. The scallops were deep fried which was a bit of a disappointment as we expect bacon wrapped scallops to usually be baked. The flavor, however was quite good. As mains, we had the fish and chips and the crab cakes. We heard the kitchen bell ring (telling the waitress that our food was ready). However our waitress got caught up making conversation with a lonely elderly lady and did not pick up our food right away. By the time the food came to our table, my husband's fries on the fish and chips were soggy. My crab cakes and salad were delicious! My husband did enjoy a cream pie for dessert.More
