Great service, great location, great food, great drink selection. First time I ate snow crab and very happy with the experience.

Don't expect a sophisticated venue, then you wont be disappointed. We had snow crab, which means you use as many calories extracting the meat, as you get from it! Great for dieters! The crab meat was excellent, so don't let the effort put you off.

Nice staff, young and inexperienced, but friendly and learning. Food was good, fresh seafood, competently prepared. Nothing exciting, but sound. Not worth a repeat, but not bad either.

One of our best meals on Cape Breton. We had the whole lobster and the crab legs. Nice fall weather allowed us to sit on the deck. Magical evening. Good service for friendly staff.

We were fortunate enough to eat at the Lobster Kettle on their last night open for the 2016 season. There is nothing special about this restaurant, the decor is simple but clean, the location is on the water, the staff is very friendly and helpful....More
