Erin Costello- Friday, June 10th, 2016
Dinner start 6:00; Show starts 8:00; Reservations Required
The question of what constitutes great soul music has been endlessly debated for decades. But what?s been proven by now is that it?s the domain of an artist with an ability to reach audience not only on a personal level, but a spiritual level as well. It?s that rare breed of singer who can completely reveal themselves through their music, to the point where listeners feel a connection far deeper than mere entertainment. Erin Costello is a voice unlike any other in Canada.

Sherry Ryan- Saturday, July 23rd, 2016
Dinner Starts 5:00; Show starts 7:00; Reservation Required
St. John?s Sherry Ryan was raised on a land fertile for songs and storytelling. She has proven herself a gifted musician and writer who leaves the stage with a small piece of your heart each time. But that?s Ok-you get a big piece of hers with every song.

"What a wonderful find! Not only were we happily surprised to find a restaurant in Grates Cove, but wonderfully pleased to find one so good! Thanks for the hospitality& great meal." M.M., Yarmouth N.S
