This quaint, out of the way, resturant could be overlooked but it's a treasure for those that take the time to find it. Eclectic atmosphere, white table cloths and candlight. Excellent wines. The herb vinegrette is amazing. Great food. Our server was excellent. Finished it off wit blood orange sorbet. Loved every bite! A great way to celebrate my birthday.

I adore this place. It has a great atmosphere and even better food! Sometimes I find myself daydreaming about their potato salad. We've been here several times for both lunch and dinner and we've never been disappointed. Delicious drinks and desserts as well.

Lunch was lovely, very fresh greens and a delightful and tasteful lunch. A charming place for a meal. The music inspired me!! Please don't serve me wine in anything but a tall stemmed wine glass!!!

This is one of my favorite restaurants on the coast - great for both lunch and dinner. I like the atmosphere at dinner - it's always lively and the bar is always full. Make reservations if in doubt. We started with the Artichoke and Shrimp dip - that was very good! Loved the fact that it's served with vegetables as... More

The service is very good. A big plus is that waitstaff are willing to work with you on special dietary requirements such as gluten free or allergies. The food was good but average. I had the special -- a prime rib sandwich that was served on a rice pilaf because of my food allergies. The waitress was careful to check... More

Best salmon cakes ever served with delicious crisp salad with delightful dressing. This was my second visit to this restaurant. The last time I had over the top wild mushroom ravioli with a white sauce that completely captured a perfect mushroom flavour. I bought one of their fun TShirts and had a great tour of the attached theatre. The restrooms... More

Side Door was recommended by several friends a few years ago and we have been back multiple times. Off the beaten path, but well worth the effort. Great food & wine list. Fairly small, so make reservations. Very popular for those in the know.

This restaurant is very popular although we always found a table at lunch. The portions are very large. They have good soups and salads in addition to sandwiches and wraps. (We only go there for lunch.) My wife once had a quiche she did not like, but I have never been disappointed. Hours change with the season. Highly recommend.

Excellent dishes, top notch preparation, and superb service make this our favorite dining spot. Steak and seafood specialties with an excellent wine selection. Wonderful soups, great deserts, salads and seafood cocktails. Good too for small groups 6-10. Though, we've had a couple dozen for birthday celebrations. Oh,, best place? My wife's kitchen, of course.

This restaurant has fresh fish and overall a nice menu selection. The atmosphere is pleasant and the decor is well done, especially since it in an old tile factory.
