Visited here on a family vacation; the menu was a lot more diverse than we thought it would be- even had some decent vegetarian options. There are not many more options for places to eat however we did not feel like we were at all settling for our meal! All of the seafood dishes were excellent !

We stopped here after spending the day in the National Park. The weather was poor, the food was good, and the view was excellent. We had seafood: chowder, oysters, fish, all of which werre very tasty. Reasonably priced.

Found in Pleasant Bay, this was one of the only restaurants we found open in mid October (they close for the season around October 20th). The food was very tasty, the staff friendly and the views spectacular. Clean restaurant, lots of parking, we would definitely eat here again.

After hiking the Skyline trail, the 5 of us stopped for lunch at the Rusty Anchor. This was a first visit for all us, and we became very pleased with this restaurant. Staff gave us a friendly welcome and we were quickly seated. Our waitress arrived quickly, answered our menu questions and took our orders, Oustanding in our choices were "Cakes, cakes and more cakes", the chowder, and a pab fried haddock fillet. Wonderful food at a reasonable price. We all plan to return.
