We had 3 grandchildren with on day trip. While walking the board walk looking for something they would enjoy we got handed a discount coupon and menu. Kids said they would try it. The place was better looking than a visit a few years back, and everything was clean. Kids enjoyed their meals, ours lacked anything special, just average in taste. Staff was helpful with taken and servicing order.

We thought it was overpriced but then it is a holiday spot and it was peak time. The waitress was friendly and helpful and the food was of reasonable quality. Was nothing to get excited about.

I recently had the forgettable experience of eating at this restaurant. In all honesty i should have rated this 1 star but seeing that the menu had reduced prices for the seafood festival i wont be to critical. The dining room here is a sad state of affairs and is in serious need of a face lift. Everything has a dirty and warn look from the paint peeling off the walls to the dingy carpets to the old tables you eat your meals at. In keeping with this theme our waitress would have been more at home in a midwestern diner smoking a ciggerete than working at a beach front sit down restaurant. The worst part though was the uninspired food. For a appitizer we got "poutine" which was really just frozen fries with cheap gravy poured on top of them.For my entree i had a lobster whiich tasted fine as its pretty hard to mess up a lobster as long as i ingore how small of a lobster i was served i guess it wasnt so bad. My girlfriend ordered a shrimp scampi dish which was a complete failure. The shrimp was overcooked and inedible and she ate about half her pasta. I would say its safe to say we will never be back.

The breakfast buffet on weekends is good. It has a fair selection and the price is fair for what you get. The service was good and the place was clean.

we had the breakfast buffet and it was good. plenty to eat and lots of options. they did not have real syrup but everything else was good. we eat there on our recent trip during labor day and we would go again. not too crowded clean and the price was right. food not over or under cooked. probably one of the best meals we had during our 3 day stay. lots of bacon and the pancakes were fluffy.
