Had been there before and enjoyed it but the food is not as good anymore, did not like menu selection. Server was off borderline rude but disinterested and inattentive.

As a maritime rescue, I am fussy about my lobster. This stuff was the mushy canned type but out here the good stuff is hard to get. My kid however loved his fried chicken on a waffle.

My husband and I ended up here for a late night snack. He was very excited to try the lobster rolls as he loved eating lobster while traveling to Halifax. This was our first time at this restaurant, and I am uncertain if I would return. The bread had so much butter on it that it was actually difficult to eat. The only thing I could taste in the lobster roll was butter (or oil?) it was that overwhelming. We ended up leaving the lobster sand which all together because it felt like eating a tub of butter. So we moved onto the fries, and they were incredible! Oh those fries, fresh, some crispy, some soft, all perfect. The fries had just the right amount of salt and they truly were delicious. mmmmmmm Im thinking about them right now!! I would return to this place just to eat the fries, I'd probably skip the lobster sandwich though...

We tried this as a different option. The pork belly was crispy and super sweet but was paired perfectly with brussel sprouts - the bitterness of them made the dish complete (I'm not normally a fan of brussel sprouts). We tried the crab and shrimp jerk - it was tasty, the shrimp over cooked, the crab small and fussy but tasty. There was a really nice butter sauce but no bread provided to lap it up ($5 for bread).
It was an interesting experience. Service was great.
