The food here was awful. My husband ordered a chicken breast club sandwich which the menu informed us would have aged cheddar on it. The aged cheddar turned out to be a slice of processed cheese. The fries were burnt black and inedible and dripped old, disgusting grease. However, the lovely little motel next door was great :)

The food is less than average although the view is good. The lobster mac and cheese had little lobster and the fish was not tasty.

This restaurant is only a few minutes drive from Baddeck, quite near the Gaelic College at St. Ann's. It has located on the waterfront with a great view from the dining room. Lobster is priced according to size and can be ordered with a side of mussels and desert for a very reasonable surcharge. The food was freshly cooked, well... More

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
