Although it's in the middle of nowhere on Cape George, Boyd's is well worth the trip. I had the seafood chowder and my wife had the fried fish. Both were excellent! Cape George is lovely, and if you are driving through the area, be sure to stop at Boyd's for lunch or dinner if you're anywheres near Cribbon's Harbor. Boyd's... More

Came across this place by accident and we were delighted! Food was delicious! Lobster roll was one of the best I have ever had! I appreciated that they made it without celery for me. Fish and chips were absolutely wonderful; light and crispy batter and fresh, flaky haddock. We will be back.

A bit of a drive from Antigonish, but worth it. Best lobster roll of the entire trip. This fish-and-chips was also excellent, as were the views of the docks and bay. Would have been nice if we could have ordered a beer.

We stumbled upon Boyds and were impressed with the speed of service and the taste of our meals. Almost everything is lightly fried but was very fresh and tasty. We had a large group so many of the menu items were tried and everyone was happy with their choices. We plan to return tonight!

I asked in downtown Antigonish where are the best lobster rolls. "Boyd's in Cribbons, just 15 minutes up 337." It hit the spot! Lobster rolls #1, Haley (our server #1, and view from deck #1.

Some of the best seafood I've ever had! The whole (NOT strips :-) clam platter was amazing. I sampled my friend's scallops to - soooo fresh. Other friend had the fish and said it was incredibly flakey. Beyond that, the ocean view was worth the drive on its own...and it was quite the drive! Kept thinking the GPS was having... More

This was our first trip to Boyd's and it will not be the last. I hdd the Seafood platter, and since I dont eat shrimp, they gave me more calimari. It was the best calimari I have ever eaten. There were also scallops and a piece of fish. So much fish I could not eat all the fries. Hubby had... More

This seafood shack lies at the end of a long side road off route 337 in Morristown, NS. Hard to find but worth looking for. I highly recommend the fish and chips. Fresh fish prepared is a flavorful and light batter. Incredible sweet tartar sauce was the perfect condiment for the friend seafood served fresh off the boats you can... More

Boyd's came fairly highly recommended as a place we should go while in the Antigonish area. I had clams and fries. The first bite I do remember saying they tasted a little fishy....should have listened to my inner instincts.....violently ill all evening/night. Beyond that the fries were terrible - tasteless. no crispiness, everything ordered was very overpriced. Husband asked for... More

I am sorry to hear that your experience fell short of your expectation and would like to address some of your concerns. We take great pride in our food. On a daily basis we have “every” shrimp, scallop, clam, calamari, haddock, lobster, chowder etc. dated so proper rotation is done. We are so organized that we try to only defrost... More

Boyd's seafood restaurant is located at the end of Cribbon's Road 15 or so minutes past Antigonish. The road is not obvious so watch for it. The restaurant is an elevated large patio and verandah where you go in to the counter, order your food and it is brought to you. Seafood chowder was excellent as was the lobster roll.... More
