Tasty Food +Friendly Service + Excellent Value + Amazing View Parking lot was almost full, food were tasty and came in fairly big portion. Waitress was very friendly, as we have become accustomed to in Newfoundland. The view is simply amazing if you can get...a window seat. Great spot for sunset. I had two hard scoops ice cream and glad that I did.More

By far, the worst food and service I’ve EVER had. Waiting 45 minutes for a club sandwich and a salad? I ordered the salad because the staff have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA about food allergies. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. Save your bucks and go to the...Mary Browns .More

Unbelievable location, beautiful views, friendly service, very clean. Food is delicious, generously portioned, and economically priced. We watched whales frolic on the way in and left to the setting sun with full bellies.

We just had lunch on the deck. Had a fish burger and seafood chowder. Best fish burger I’ve ever had. Chowder was delicious as well. Will definitely be back and highly recommend.

Probably the best milkshake I have ever had - half chocolate bad half banana. We got three milkshakes so it def took awhile (minus 1 star for slowness) but super yummy!

We stopped just for a light lunch. Had the pea soup along with beef vegetable soup and both were very good. A chicken wrap was a unexpected surprise that was excellent. Don’t let the location and small building turn u away. Very well done

We visited the Little Dairy King while visiting the Bonavista area, and just after they had opened for the season. The place, which has both an eat in restaurant and a take out, was very busy, but we were seated almost immediately. The menu has...many options, portions were large, the food was absolutely excellent, and the service was friendly and fast. The restaurant is located a ways out of town near Cape Bonavista, but it is worth the drive!!! The views are amazing and complement the food and service!! It is well worth the visit!!More

Visited on the way back from the lighthouse. Ordered at the window (orange milkshake and pineapple ice cream soda) and they made it right there while we waited. Noticed orders with food were taking a bit longer, but we were served quickly. Nice scenery behind...the building.More

It is not a large place, but worth the wait if you love real milkshakes . The line ups on both days was long but staff moved it along and were very friendly.

This place came highly recommended and didn’t disappoint. The food was sooooo good. Fries were homemade and cooked just perfectly. Homemade cheeseburgers were tasty. Husband really enjoyed the chicken burger. We finished lunch and went out to the ice cream bar. Huge servings with a...wide variety of options. We enjoyed them on a picnic table overlooking the ocean. Great service and reasonable prices. Perfect place to stop while heading to lighthouse and Dungeon. I wouldn’t advise you to take your ice cream on the road to the Dungeon though as the roaming horses may try to get a lick ;)More
