Very clean restaurant but a bit pricy for what you get. Friendly staff and very efficient. Busy spot for sure.

I was on my last day on Cape Breton and never had any lobster yet. Ordered a lobster sandwich $20. It was tasty enough but my goodness $20 for a sandwich? I found everything in this tourist trap of Baddeck to be overpriced and underwhelming....More

We started our Cape Breton trip with the intent of trying chowders at all locations. The Fish Chowder was alright and I'd order it again. My Coquille St Jacques was amazing, and my husband' fried shrimp were fine. We will definitely return when visiting Baddeck.

We went for lunch. The wait was a bit long but not the hostess or waitress told us it could be longer than usual. Found it was a bit overpriced for the portions we receive. Terrific location though.

Went for a romantic dinner. Had a table by the window - gorgeous waterfront view. Food was delicious. We both had the chicken alfredo and a caeser salad. Cheesecake for dessert. Lovely meal in a beautiful spot.

Decided to spend both of our nights in Baddeck dining at this restaurant and it did not disappoint. Good fish and great red wine from Nova Scotia - get over having to say a bottle of Great Big Frigging Red - and enjoy it!
