You know the food is good when they start you off with cucumber infused water. Great burgers, fries, spinach soup and a pesto pasta dish with peas. Our server was fantastic.

Voted #1 on Trip Advisor for a reason. Food was amazing - definitely best meal in New Brunswick! Make a reservation, even on a weeknight. And they are only open for lunch on Mondays.

Fabulous food, great atmosphere, lovely music, great service. My husband's steak was a little underdone (he ordered medium to medium well and it was rare - very bloody), but otherwise, all of our meal was excellent. Our waitress was pleasant and knowledgeable. Great spot.
