This was our first restaurant visit in St John's and our first exposure to scruncheons. Apparently scruncheons are served as an accompaniment to many dishes in Newfoundland, high salt intake but tasty little tidbits. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere quite enjoyable. The food service was slow, they had a few large groups. We were not in a hurry and had a nice evening. Would recommend going.

Not sure what happened to this place. The service is still friendly enough but the kitchen has become so slow that even ordering a breakfast sandwich is a 45 min wait at times (only half full on my visit). Still a good gathering hole in the evenings but if u are looking for a quick brunch or lunch location keep walking somewhere else. Expensive too. $5.95+tax for a small pot of microwaved baked beans? Really?

To start with the restaurant is so welcoming and bright. The décor is beautiful and light giving a nice cheerful atmosphere. The staff is wonderful and accommodating. I enjoyed the Salmon which was out of this world! My husband had the Cod and enjoyed every bit. My daughter had the Cesar Salad and couldn't get enough.

We had also stopped earlier in the week for a cold beverage and had just as great an experience so whether you are looking to replenish yourself while on a shopping and sight seeing spree or if you are looking to end your day with a wonderful meal...this is the place.

Had their breakfast. I found it a tad bit overpriced for the value of the food. There are much better breakfast spots in St. John's for a better price. My experience made a reconsider coming to this restaurant for dinner on my next trip to St. John's

We recently enjoyed a good dinner at Blue on Water, with local craft beers and a local cod dish that was the special that evening. The food was fresh and well-prepared but the table service and or kitchen service was very, very slow. We waited at least 35 minutes for our entrees. At the time, the restaurant was mostly full.
