We had dinner here one night of a week long stay in Baddeck. The food was terrible, the presentation was terrible and the service was just possible. The interior atmosphere is over done and garish. The deck is ok if you like sitting on the edge of a parking lot and street corner. Lots of much better choices.

Our shocking experience began when the unappetizing sliced bread was served with those nasty little pre-sealed butter containers. I went to open a butter container and found that it had already been opened and most of the butter cleaned out -- meaning someone had used it and the container was placed in our basket. This means that the restaurant is... More

The restaurant server was a delight. She was friendly and a good waitress. The lobster was local and tasted wonderful. I had local lake trout which is the best I have ever had. Would recommend this restaurant to everyone. You can eat indoors or on the terrace.

We had dinner here on our 2nd night in Baddeck. Dinner was 1 steak, 2 Lasagna's and a fettuccine with chicken. The steak had far too much pepper on it, the Lasagnas were made with too much garlic, as was the fettuccine. Our server was slow and ill- informed, definately sub-par compared to the servers who were taking care of... More

First off, the service was really bad. We waited over 45 minutes after ordering before our food appeared. During that time we had one server tell us it would be a few minutes (actually, almost 30), and "three minutes" (more like 10). No apology. One server whom we asked, in desperation, offered "more bread", not noticing that no one had... More

Appears to be a family run business that is very short on money. Drinks hardly had an alcohol. Food on a plate was the minimum to call it a meal.

Enjoyed a good meal here, with good service. Treated the children to lobster which was very expensive for what it was, and tasted a bit dry to me - which maybe how it is meant to be, I don't make a habit of dining on lobster! Just a little disappointed on this one dish for the price we paid.

An extremely busy restaurant, we obviously arrived the same time as a coach party. However, the was not apparent in the service which was both friendly and very efficient. A delicious tasty meal that you could imagine was home cooked, if the place had not been so packed. Highly recommended.

We had a very good experience the evening we ate dinner there while we were in Baddeck, NS. The service was great and the food tasty. Would go back there again.

We had the opportunity to be in Baddeck recently , during Celtic Colours and ate at the Lynwood Inn. Our choice , fish cakes was a good one. They were very tasty and you can have either homemade baked beans or cottage cheese and chow. We actually ate there twice and had a different waitress the second time. We were... More
