We have been to the Lobster pound a few times now. Every time we go the service is good and food is REALLY good. The prices are reasonable as well as the portions. It's a nice change to other restaurants in the area which serve all the same kinds of food.

Heather at Harbourside B & B recommended the Lobster Pound. She told us to call early for reservations and it was a good thing we did, as they were not admitting any more patrons when we got there. We did not have lobster, but one had steak and the other had swordfish. Everything was superb, and the best part was... More

Their specialty is lobster, but they serve much more. The crab cakes are to die for. Had the baked potato cheddar soup, and it was so wonderful. Have eaten here several times, with many friends, and no one leaves disappointed. Staff is very attentive, and the chef, the Moore referred to in the name, goes to great lengths to accommodate...

You absolutely have to visit this restaurant, it is the pinnacle of east coast cuisine. Run by a sweet couple the place doesn't look like much from the outside but as soon as you walk in the interior design is super elegant. We were tavelling the east coast from Toronto and found this place on trip advisor. The owner/chef of... More

Arguably the best meal we had in N.S. We were lucky to get a reservation! Food was outstanding as well as service. Atmosphere was a cut below the food but not an issue. Highly recommend!!!

I don't eat out often, but when my roomate from 40 years ago, and her husband stayed at my place, I thought it would be nice to take them to one of the best, if not the best restaurant in Cape Breton. They had the ribs, and I had the chicken pot pie with the puff pastry. Aside from the... More

Ate there for lunch, wish we could have come back for dinner. Everything was delicious (lobster wontons, lobster club sandwich). Waitress extremely friendly. Don't let the front of the building deceive you, you might think it's not even open - go down the right side, park at the back.

My husband had lobster, and being from California he certainly didn't know where to begin, Richard (the owner)was at his side to help him through it. The lobster was amazing, perfect. I had the lobster ravioli it was like a party in my mouth, loved it. Service, atmosphere and food were all perfect. Will definitely be back, thanks for making... More

I love the Lobster Pound and have never been disappointed with a meal or service there. I have been at least 1/2 dozen times and will keep going back! The chef is very accommodating and whipped up a great soup for me to accompany my steak and homemade fries, after I asked about the soup selections! Super friendly and welcoming... More
