The menu choices are your typical diner/comfort-food options and, because this is Canada, poutine available as a side dish with every meal. I specifically recall that our server was outstanding- execellent service.

Such a typical Maritime restaurant. The staff are super friendly and treat everyone like family. There are many regulars and the staff greet them as such when they come in. Super affordable. Great food and even good for senior sized portions.
