They really do serve locally caught seafood like the wonderful Queen Crab we had which was just coming into season and of course lobster which was just finishing the season. Lots of other things on the menu but go for this.

My husband and I both had the chicken royale. We enjoyed our meal. The service was good. We would return if in Louisbourg.

This was close to our hotel and to the Louisbourg Playhouse where we saw a terrific musical program. The service was excellent.

This restaurant in Louisbourg is like a Mom & Pop restaurant. Choice of food is fairly basic but tasty & plentiful. Prices were fair. Service was friendly. Wine list was very small. We'd go back there again without hesitation.

With only two restaurants open in town when we visited in September, we had misgivings but not a lot of choice. We were very pleasantly surprised. The food was great--nothing fancy, just good quality and tasty. The service was fast and friendly. The best part...More

Service was great but the food was middle of the road. Fish was great but crab cakes were not. Vegetables were previously frozen.

My husband enjoyed his steak. I had scallops with mushrooms/ green onions in wine sauce. Both were tasty & far better than the venue would indicate.
