Stopped in for drinks at the bar one night, and a small snack with some friends - WOW - the staff were super fun and entertaining! We had such a good time, we made reservations for dinner the next night.
Menu - well executed, with great specials - priced right. Food was prepared perfectly, service was without fault and again all the staff just make this place fun.
Great ambiance, the only thing would be to lower the lighting a bit in the bar area, to make it more intimate.

This seafood restaurant is located on the waterfront in the St John's harbour, so suffice it to say that the setting is perfect for a seafood restaurant.
The menu was very complete with halibut,cod,char,sea bass being offered with mussels ,lobster and other crustaceans.
The preparation and presentation were excellent and the service by Franny was over the top. Loved her.
We did find the room a little noisy but then it was packed. Clearly a popular destination.
Some of the servings were a bit on the large size, the Cod Jigs and Fish and Chips in particular.
My Halibut was very good.
An summary a good choice for seafood.

Staff every accommodating. If your into Caesars their house Caesar is a meal in its self. Lobster tail was the garnish. Just to give you a idea. We shared a breakfast which was enough for two.

Our drinks, appetizers, meal, wine and dessert were all delicious. Our table was in the center of the window overlooking St. John's harbor. A perfect setting for their cod and halibut specials, and order the crab and spinach dip as an appetizer - you won't be disappointed. Our server Brent was very knowledgeable and attentive even though the restaurant was very busy. If you like seafood, this is the place.

We only had one night in St. John's and I'm sure glad we went there. After 10 days traveling the province it was great to finally eat something that isn't fried. The place itself is modern and the staff is welcoming. Food was very tasty.
