The beer selection was fantastic. Actually had a business meeting here and was able to get lots done. Service was friendly and helpful. Beer was cold and very very tasty!

Can't beat the price! The hotel gave me a coupon for $2.99 mussels, and I was IN! Excellent service. Good mussels, fresh salad and great beer. My visit to Nova Scotia was off to a great start!

The restaurant is a cheap place to eat but it is greasy. I could not eat mine and just picked at it. It was just too greasy to eat and what little I had upset my stomach almost instantly.
