Have been here a few times. Menu is consistent with the familiar blue cod or seafood chowder. Overall friendly place with good service and food. Would be nice if menu could be slightly extended to suit those who dont want a burger, fish or soup....More

A really nice old hotel, lovely views of the harbor and really beautiful garden setting. Meals take a while when the place is busy but the food is good.
