    The restaurants that are good will always do well.The ones that aren't terrific will fall victim and become nothing but spots for tourists.Get it together,provide food,service and atmosphere and you will not have to rely solely on the tourist trade.
    Start by providing good food,not overpriced,overcooked,poorly served pub grub (or at least admit that it's pub grub and price it accordingly) and stop gouging people when the season permits (aka St. Paddy's Day,when the greenest thing is the price hike in pint$$$) and maybe you can get some loyal customers.

    The food and beverage industries employs 1000's and 1000's of man hours yearly in this province alone. It makes sense for the gov't to have an interest and working partnership.

    Taxpayer not everyone spends their weekends home looking at the TV. Some people actually do go out, but I don't think they have to beat the door down to do so.

    All this article is saying there should be a government plan/vision for such an important industry.
    Industries like the fishery, forestry, and diary get daily hand outs. Gov't should be more open to removing barriers and obstacles that hinder business...

    So Brenda, if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. Yet another private group looking for a handout. If the product is there people will beat a path to your door, if not you see your profit margin slip to 3.2 percent.

    It's really nice to hear these penny pinching business owners complaining about having to pay their employees minimum wage. They would love to pay their devoted employees less but it's against the law...only for that!
    Did she ever think that if she paid some real money for a 'real' band people would come out to see them instead of the same tired ol' fiddle crap by the same 3 guys playing under 3 different band names? Cowboy hats on! Cowboy hats off!
    No handout for you! If you don't want to pay the bands and your employees a decent wage then get out of the business all together. This stuff turns my stomach!
