Great coconut shrimp and a craft brew while gazing at the ocean. Lots of staff and very very busy with patrons!

The restaurant is small and somewhat cramped which adds to the ambience. Had the cod and chips as well as the chowder/crab cakes combo. Both excellent. Fish not greasy while the chowder was hot and hearty. Might want to get the chipotle sauce for the crab cakes on the side. While homemade, I found it overwhelmed the cakes. There is a small outside area although it is almost fully enclosed. Good, friendly service. Worth a visit.

What a cute and quaint restaurant right on the water. After reading Trip Advisor reviews we started with the seafood chowder and it did not disappoint. Deleesh! The meals were tasty and the staff were personable and attentive. Worth the wait at the door! Very close to the Victoria airport. A must visit next time we stay on the island.

Have eaten at this restaurant on previous visits to Sidney and will return to it. Very tasty seafood in a great location for ocean watching. Friendly staff. Small restaurant so good to make reservation in peak season.

Had breakfast here , eggs Benedict with salmon was delicious! Service was speedy and friendly. The restaurant is small and perched right on the pier with great ocean views.
