This was our first ever meal in Nova Scotia, This place was recommended by the staff at the hotel. I had the battered fish and chips with gravy, and I have to say this was the best fish and chips I have ever had. The service was quick and the staff eager to please.

I love eating at local restaurants and this one was a real treat. I had the best chicken club ever and the coconut cream pie was amazing. The merangue on my husband's pie was so high the filling could barely support it. Based on my neighbour's meals, the fish must be very good as well. If you are in Bridgewater,... More

A group of us visited this restaurant on recommendation by others. Prompt and friendly service with orders for all 7 taken quickly and efficiently. Drinks were served almost immediately and food followed after a reasonable wait for the types of menu items ordered. However, over half the orders were not exceptional enough to warrant a revisit to this restaurant. In... More

When we were there it was around 4:30 p.m. The restraunt was busy with a steady flow coming through the door. I order the steak spacial for $19.99, my steak was... More

After consulting with the entire staff working that day (waitstaff and kitchen) and learning that one of the meals was consumed without complaint and when a concern was issued about the other. As you stated, the waitstaff "quickly said she would replace them with new and freshly cooked." We respect all people in our community and those travelling to our... More

Their fish is awesome. Service is great. They are not super fast but their food is fresh cooked so that takes time.

Stopped by for lunch after reading the online reviews. The fish and chips were excellent as well as the burger (actually real meat). Couldn't resist having the chocolate pie and it was one of the best I have ever had. Rice pudding was mediocre but the rest of the pies were also homemade so i will be back to test... More
