A nice local restaurant overlooking the bay.We loved the seafood chowder so much we had to go back twice. The staff were great and as we were the last to leave one night, one of the staff made us her favourite 'apple pie shooter' with her compliments. It felt like being at a friends' house for dinner!

Come and enjoy our spacious fully licensed dining room with seating for 100 and enjoy a magnificent view of Trinity Bay and Whiteway's Shag Rocks. Brown's service is attentive, friendly and upbeat. While we have the most extensive menu on the Avalon, we specialize in seafood and traditional Newfoundland cuisine.
