If you are looking for a quick place to grab a meal that is delicious, stop by Main Street, I especially like their fish and chips...

This is where local patrons would go. Good solid typical local food, very good pies, great value, huge helpings. They even have seal flipper pie in season. Simple décor, nothing fancy. There are 8 pigeons in a plexiglass enclosure for viewing. Next door to the much more upscale Brown Jug restaurant.

I had a hamburger steak. The mashed potatoes had no flavour. Had to add salt and pepper and butter, and still... The hamburger steak was overcooked and dry. A friend had a chicken burger. The chicken was three Chinese chicken balls. Just pass by and go to Stone Jug.

Best sweet and sour sauce I've had in my life. This place is always one of my first stops when I come home for a visit. I highly recommend the nuggets and homemade fries for anyone looking to try a quick meal. However, if you're looking for a good soup or home cooked meal they have that as well.
