All four of us only had lobster so that's all I can attest to, but it was great. Very fun server who tied all of us in bibs. Great water views, too.

Ate there a little over 2 weeks ago and prior to Lobster Gallery were disappointed in Nova Scotia lobster, which we had at 3 other restaurants. Challenged the young hostess when we walked in about getting good lobster and she immediately took us back to the lobster holding tanks where they were kept by size ( and very clean). Then... More

Although this restaurant was the only one near where we stayed (~15 minutes north of Baddeck), it was very good. The chowder was very good. The lobster mac and cheese was not bad - lobster in the mac and cheese was ok (seemed like over-cooked). The special - trout - was excellent. The service was friendly and quick. Definitely a... More

Had a massive 4 pound lobster even though it was off season. Drove here from Niagara Falls and this place caught our eye as an authentic Atlantic lobster restaurant. Don't think twice- go there and get the biggest lobster your money can buy!

The Lobster Galley is a very friendly restaurant with great staff. They have a good menu, very reasonably priced. The restaurant sits on a picturesque view of the harbour along the east side of the Cabot Trail. We arrived fairly late in the evening, just prior to the restaurant's close, and they very kindly served us and kept the restaurant... More

There is nothing fancy about Lobster Gallery; the food is good, the service is friendly and fast. We had about an hour before our tour, and we ware able to eat our Lobster BLTS with plenty of time to spare. Would go back again under similar circumstances.

We stayed at the St.Ann's Motel (excellent) so we decided to walk next door to the Lobster Galley restaurant for dinner. The restaurant is very clean, provides a great view of the bay, and the service is very good. The lobster dinners are great but we decided to order something other than the whole lobster for our dinners. My wife... More

The Lobster Galley is a nice friendly place, with a exceptional view of the harbour, very good food and friendly servers. We loved the mussels and home cooked desserts. The menu has a little bit for everyone, including a selection a single malt scotches, fresh seafood, ice cream, great selection of teas. We arrived as the Hurricane Arthur was passing... More

No holiday or business should ever pass this gem again without stopping in for a feast and friendly conversation with staff and owners Jean Thiele and her... More

We stayed at the St. Ann's Motel next door to the Lobster Gallery Restaurant and decided to try the restaurant for dinner. Staff were very sweet and friendly. Gave us a table with a view of the water and service was great! The food was the best! Mom had the Haddock, and said it was fresh and delicious! Auntie and... More
