Went here for supper and just happened to be there on Thursday. They had live entertainment. The service was quick even though it was a full house.

Fish and chips in Nova Scotia can be very good value. This diner provided huge portions of excellent fried haddock and french fries at very reasonable prices with friendly service. Just the place for a family friendly meal at excellent value.

Saw Joe Murphy and the Waterstreet Blues Band one night, and the Wimbledon Grand Slam one morning (over Eggs Bennie). Good... More
