It has its ambience when you enter that disappears when you get food. It was barely warm, looked warmed up assembled from leftovers, but not cooked. Fries were sticky and gummy. Not sure if I ever go there again.

Note **** We were at the ferry dock location**** Decor and music were nice. Coconut shrimp with fries was good. Whitefish was awful !! I ordered whitefish and fries for 16.95 and it came with one very decently sized pc of fish and a good...amount of fries. However...the fish was just saturated and glistening with oil. But I thought..okay...I can deal with that. Then... one bite..then another to be sure...it was very gross. It was very mushy and was probably the grossest fish I have ever had. I am not a food snob, but I do know what whitefish is supppsed to taste like. This was nowhere close. I had my friend try a bite...and she said the same thing...something is very wrong with that fish. We told waitress and she said 'well looks okay' and she offered to replace it, but I declined and just told her I would have the fries only. Thankfully she did not charge me for the fish, only for an order of fries. I left her a nice tip. I hope I do not get sick tonight..it is my thought it may have been very undercooked. The tartar sauce came in a little squeezable packet and was more just like yellow mayonaise...yuk I would not go again...we were quite disappointed given the prices.More

The Mango Chipolte Chicken is at least chicken but there isn't anything Mango about it and unless they mean chipolte colour it fails in it's billing miserably. The service is awesome but the food is mediocre at best

If I can give NO Star, i will definitely give it. Do NOT Go there. Service - not acceptable. Waitress Julie ignored my ordering request and again my dinner bill. I waited total of 20 min for her. Restaurant was not busy. She just disappeared...into kitchen or serving other customers. Clean and tidinesses - the tables are sat on gravels, waitress pour left over drinks on gravels under wood picnic tables where dinners sat. Food - worst Fish & Chips i ever have. The local white fish have no texture and fish taste, just salty paste. And charged 2 extra $2 for salad that I did not ordered and thought they came with the F&C. They came in individual clear plastic cup with caps. They were so disgusting that we have not touched. When I asked her, she was laughing with no explanation. I have done 250+ review with TA fir restaurants and hotels in North America, Europe (10 countries), Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea.More

Just another cash grab place in Tobermory. I had the 2 piece of haddock which looked it was cut in half and the same size as my daughters 1-piece. Fish was cover cooked and rubbery. Fries still had the frozen taste. They even ran out...of coleslaw. I really dislike when a restaurant says they run out of something. That is poor management. Time to get out of this place.More

We were seated right away, drinks arrived within minutes and they were ready to take our order before we were. But we were never rushed. Food seemed to appear in seconds! Everything hot and tasty, very friendly service.

If you are looking for a casual atmosphere on the patio with great service this is the place to go. Beers were cold and the calamari was very average but overall I would recommend if you just want fast food and cold beer.

Got the all you can eat fish and chips and didn’t disappoint! It was 25 dollars but if you eat three pieces you just made your money back. The fish was good and the atmosphere is nice

The restaurant is bang on the main road and is hard to miss. The portions are good, but you get mostly fried items. Not for health conscious. Otherwise fun restaurant.
