Liverpool lacks a wide selection of culinary experiences. It is a gorgeous setting right on the water and the patio is the only place to experience it properly.

This restaurant is attached to the Privateer Inn. As such, its decor and coziness echo the inn. We were travelling off of the beaten track (the 103) enjoying the sights on Highway 3, when we suddenly saw the inn and restaurant. Good that we stopped!...More

Assorted sandwiches served on housemade brown bread, fresh biscuits and awesome chowder, fish and chips and generous salads make this spot an excellent lunch stop if passing through the region. Service is friendly and homey and very attentive.

We both enjoyed our meals (lobster poutine and linguine). The homemade biscuits were a nice touch and we were pleasantly surprised to be there on trivia night. We participated and very much enjoyed the friendly atmosphere!

Well priced, great rooms and the most comfortable beds EVER!! (didn't want to get out of bed). We had breakfast in the morning (complimentary) and because the hotel was not very full (November), the chef cooked us full breakfasts with fresh ham, eggs, hashbrowns and...More
