My husband had the fish sandwich and I had the fisherman's lunch - seafood chowder with cheesy crab bread. Dessert, sticky toffee pudding and coffee followed! Everything was delicious, light and fresh. The service, price, and atmosphere were all great!

I always enjoy this spot, especially in the summer sitting on the patio near the water. Its beautiful. Love to relax with a glass of vino. We order a lot of take out from their menu in winter. I recommend this location to anyone passing through or just to visit for a great meal.

I had heard that there were new owners at Dougall's and wanted to give it a try. I had always enjoyed the spot before and wanted to see what changes had been made to the space and the menu. The space is refreshed - brighter and they have done a great job with the space that is around the bar.... More

Our adult family (four members) visited for lunch today for first time since new owners. Food good, server Ellen was very friendly, smiling and cheerful. Been here a number of times and can always depend on hot, delicious food. Menu same as previous owners but advised new restaurant and menu expected to change sometime in May.

The service was slow and the food was average. I was had a glass of wine and was not asked if I would like another beverage or a second glass. Everyone was seated in the noisier bar area yet the dining room was empty. My date had the Big Wing an old fav of ours and it wasn't breaded. We... More

Under new ownership, and I can already see the improvement. Food was very good; service was very pleasant, if a little slow. The lighting is a bit brighter than it was, and that's a good thing. The owner fixed up the pub section of the restaurant -- many more TVs, more comfortable seating, and just plain more inviting. I anticipate... More

Had a wonderful dinner, good food, great service and enjoyable atmosphere. Our waitress was friendly, fun and very helpful. Our meals were delicious and served in a very reasonable time. The new owner introduced herself and ensured our experience was as we expected. Happy to say "Were Back"!

This restaurant is under new ownership, and is so much better and nicer. The previous owner was nasty to people who dared put their not so nice, personal review of her restaurant - ridiculing and embarrassing them if it wasn't a good review. Not cool. Service is now good, and the food is good (now).

My husband and I and our family have been coming to Dougall's Restaurant, for at least 10 years. It has always been a favourite spot for great fish, pub food and a nice view of the bay. Under new ownership, it has only gotten better. Great personal service, great food and a fun place to go for a nice family... More
