Great location and beautiful scenery. We ate indoors because it was cooler. The greeter at the entrance had a sour face and it felt like we were bothering her. Our waitress was friendly but the service was poor. Some people who came in after us...More

There perch dinners I believe are 17-18 dollars. Their haddock and chips is between 12-14 dollars. Some changes at this restaurant. I was there last weekend and they have a new chef.
