Had a fish dinner and my husband had a hamburger. Both were dry and tasteless and the waitress (or owner?) initially ignored us- only 2 other people in on a Saturday night. She acted really weird. Not going back there!

We've had both breakfast and lunch here and enjoyed it both times. The food is good and inexpensive. The restaurant is very clean and has lots of natural light and a great view of the canal. It is also family friendly.

I happened across this place when in Port Colborne and enjoyed a sunday breakfast there. The menu gives you lots of options and I went for the corned beef hash with eggs. Everything was done nicely, the service was smiling and friendly, and overall it made for an enjoyable meal at a very reasonable price.

My mother and I decided to have lunch here. We were impressed by the decor and the waitress was very friendly. My mother ordered the fish and chips and I ordered the souvlaki which came with fries and Greek salad. I asked for no fries and extra salad instead. We drank our coffee, also very good and then the meals... More

Nice place to go eat and watch the boats pass by on the canal. We often go for breakfast, the food is always delicious and the service is friendly and prompt!

We dropped in for supper after a walk around scenic canal-side Port Colborne. This turned out to be an excellent choice for a location to eat, good food, very reasonable prices and good service. Views to the street, lift bridge and the Welland Canal from the dining room. Overall a pleasant experience. We as a couple had two entries and... More

Was there on a Thursday evening with a large group at another table. So, the food was a little slower than I'd like, but good when it arrived. Huge portion of fresh cole slaw. came with the F&C. From the outside I'd assumed it was a pub, but not. No draft beer, only a few bottles. Good location and views... More
