When we are in the area we always stop in and have at least one meal at Roadside. It is quite a busy place, especially in the summer. The food is East-Coast style, with their specialties like fried clams, Haddock, scallops, Chowder, etc. Most of the food is fried, but not too greasy, and very healthy portions. I tried the... More

Visited here with my boyfriend's family who are from the area. His grandmother was craving fried clams and this was the place to have them. She recommended that I have the "small" seafood platter to have a taste of everything. It came with fried clams, fried fish and fried scallops (french fries, peas and a side of coleslaw included). The... More

The Roadside Grill was recommended to us by a local resident and we were not disappointed. With one exception (our five-year-old who decided that she wanted a cheeseburger) we all had scallops, fish and chips. It was perfectly cooked and the coleslaw was well above-average. The Grill also serves thick, luscious milkshakes ... we were pleasantly overstuffed as we left.

Every trip to Nova Scotia requires at least on feed of fried clams. The clams here were as good as any I've had.

The Roadside Grill at Belliveaus Cove is a convenient stopping point. It’s more than convenient, it’s surprisingly bright and light, unsurprisingly welcoming, happily bi-lingual, and has great views to the ocean. Oh, and it serves excellent food – typically North American in quantity – at modest prices, just as it has been doing for many decades. A a little gem... More

I live next door to this place. I have probably been here 100 times and it has been great every single time! David, the owner, takes great pride in his restaurant and it shows. The portions are generous and the seafood is always fresh. The seafood platter is the cat's meow. Might i add the service is great and you... More
