Lunchtime, warm day so sat outside. Order food at bar, then it is brought out to you. Help yourself to coffee. Coffee good quality and hot. Lobster roll delicious, lots of lobster meat. Beef sandwich likewise. Shame the lawn cutter was using a strimmer for half of our eating time as it was noisy and spoiled the feel somewhat, but... More

Food was good, but more expensive and touristic than Sharon's Place - just one block away. Lobster roll was really good.

My husband and I went here the evening we arrived in Pictou just to sit and relax and have a drink. It was a Friday night with live music and the small place was packed! We still managed to grab a seat and enjoyed our shared brownie. I can't comment on the rest of their food selection, but the brownie... More

Quaint and comfy place with lots of character. Order at counter and then they bring food to your table. Had their lobster roll, smoked meat sandwich, chowder and their grilled cheese sandwich. A little pricey but still delicious.

Pictou, home to Scottish immigrants, provides a picturesque setting, a quaint small town feel, and Carver's Coffee House Studio and Pub. The lobster roll was abslutely the best we encountered in our tour of the entire Cabot Trail and Cape Breton. (One drawback was the 25 knot wind blowing some peculiar odors across the water from an adjacent paper mill....this... More

Ran out of beer and chowder. Would not recommend. The food that we were able to get was pretty bad, which was too bad as there is some much nicer places in Pictou

Great atmosphere. Local bands performing traditional songs, keltic music and probably other stuff I wasn't there to hear. Wooden ships and scottish posters on the walls, great beer on tap. Food is mostly sandwiches. Try the lobster roll, very good, but might leave you wanting a bit if you haven't eaten all day... Great crowd the night I was there.

Great local pub on the seafront. Staff friendly and helpful. House wine and beer good choice and prices!! Could have a kitchen and do proper bar snacks!! Would make it a destination for the area. Nice to be able to get a nice drink in a good location.

We were disappointed with our dinner. The vegetables in the chowder weren't cooked and it was lukewarm. The staff were friendly and helpful.

If you're looking for some good grub this is the place to stop. Relaxed atmosphere, nice patio, and tasty food at a fair price. Big beers are a plus.
