There was absolutely no seasoning of any kind added to the sides - not the tasteless mashed potatoes, cold rice nor the hard as rocks veg (I called them raw). I had to douse everything in pepper so I could taste something... :( For the length of time we had to wait for our food (at least 45 mins), I expected a little more care and preparation. The seafood was OK, but for the price, I wouldn't go back.

There is a limited selection of wine. They only serve Joist wines which are to sweet. Not crazy about the food selection. Ordered the salmon with maple and mustard sauce. All I could taste was mustard until I took the sauce of then it was quite good. My husband ordered the fish and chips. Fish was quite good but fries were soft but still overdone on the outside. Don't know how they did that.Waiter brought the bill before inquiring if we wanted desert. We had the same waiter both times. Very nice guy but very forgetful. I would turn this more into a pub and bring entertainment on the weekends. Have pub fare. I think it would increase traffic. The menu now is the same as all the others.

Fish and chips big enough for two! Good! No room for desert......large spinach salad with chicken added?! Very skimpy on veggies so you have room for desert! Lemon meringue yummy!

Good greasy and over cooked. By the taste of the fish I believe it to be frozen previously.

The food is great. Unfortunately, you can only enjoy the patio, right on the water, for a few months of the year!

From Our Editors

For every meal at Boondocks Dining Room and Lounge, there's a house sauce that elevates its flavor. Lunch, for example, might consist of hand-trimmed, beer-battered, and fried local haddock, the centerpiece of the fish 'n' chips plate. But it's the house tartar sauce, not the fries or the British accent that they cause, that truly makes the dish complete. Similarly, an English dinner of liver, bacon, and onion gets its oomph from homemade gravy, and a weekend brunch helping of eggs benedict features kitchen-fresh hollandaise sauce on its handcrafted biscuits.

Those thoughtful culinary touches unify a menu sporting a diverse array of dishes. Seafood such as Atlantic mussels from Ship Harbour and scallops compete for the spotlight with British pub fare, including steak and ale pie, bangers and mash. Sweet notes continue on into the dessert offerings, which feature a rotating selection of cheesecakes and sticky toffee pudding.
