    We have eaten here twice now, first for a celebratory supper and recently for a lunch with friends. While both experiences were wonderful, for our retirement dollars the lunch was our favorite. The seafood chowder was extraordinarily good and both salads were amazing. My husband's wrap and daily soup were raved about as well. The service has been skilled and engaging both times. "Come for the food, stay for the seal-watching"!

    Lovely location, comfortable and quiet. Most of the menu is excellent (fish and chips, fish was a little over-battered and a little raw next to the fish...but that's being picky). Bread pudding is excellent. Generally a very pleasant experience.

    Your breakfast team went above and beyond on Sunday! Joanne is always amazing but she made my Aunt Joyce's 90th birthday one to remember. After an amazing breakfast, Joyce wanted dessert! haha Imagine! after all that food! Joanne and Lynn Mackay made it happen. Even a candle and a song! Joyce had tears and definitely made it a day for her to remember! We cannot thank you all enough! The Lodge is one of our favorite places xo

    The service was excellent. Food was very good, especially the desserts. For a restaurant of this type, I would have expected homemade bread croutons in the Caesar salad, instead of prepackaged ones. Small details make a big difference.

    Lovely stay. Enjoyed our time, walks on the beach, casual atmosphere, great food at good prices. Lucy, our server accommodated our hearing issues when we explained where she could stand so we could hear her best. Throughout the meal she remembered our "good side" and always talked to us from there. It was so nice to have someone accommodate us. Unless you are hearing impaired, it is a difficult concept to understand. If there was 1 down side, it was a large party at a table in the same room. When they left, it was quiet.

    The fish and chips were no big deal. The batter wasn't cooked. It could have been made by any mediocre restaurant. The sandwich of chicken soaked in milk was one 0f the worst tasteless sandwiches I have ever tasted. The beet salad also was a small hard little beet cut up with endive or something, a tasteless cheese and dressing. It was atrocious. THE Coffee and biscuit were good, a quality expected.
