Good food and fast service

The Lynwood for our 39th anniversary dinner - it was good but a few quirks. We started with drinks and were given the bread basket but no plates to butter our bread on. We then shared an app of mussels, and again, no plates except the bowl under the mussels! The mussels were great (in a nice wine... read more

We landed in Baddeck at 2pm and were able to have a late lunch. The service was fair. The food was ok because we were hungry. It lacked variety, healthy choices, imagination and was way over priced for the greasy wrap. We travel to Baddeck frequently and decided to give it a try . Won't be my first choice next... More

We stopped here for lunch as part of our cruise tour. The food was tasty and plentiful. The service was good. But there was nothing healthy to eat. Heavy sauces and creamy salads. Good old fashion home cooking. But a wonderful view of the lake.

First night in Baddeck and because of late arrival simply jumped in the first restaurant at crossroad. A warm welcome later, found ourselves seated in a Victorian style ambience. We had a nice meal, family style. We were also lucky to enjoy our meal listening to a guitarist and singer from NS. Fish was on the menu. Another opportunity to... More

After a busy day of hiking we went looking for a place to have dinner when we turned the corner in Baddeck, NS and saw the Lynwood Inn. Luckily they had an opening and we were escorted to our table. Interesting wine list -many local Nova Scotia whites and reds. Then to decide on dinner we had a very helpful... More

This inn was on a list of restaurants provided by our motel. It is a beautiful old inn but the food was very disappointing. My wife ordered onion soup to start and it was terrible. The only good thing she said about it was that it was hot. For her entre she ordered mussels in a wine sauce. When it... More

We ended up at the Lynwood Inn after walking the town and comparing menus. We had difficulty finding the food we wanted in the town of Baddeck. There appeared to be dining options outside of town and at the Golf Club but they were either closed or too far to drive (we had done the Cabot Trail that day). So... More

Had dinner here. The chowder had a floury consistency, almost like paste. The breaded haddock was paper thin, breaded to the hilt, and over cooked. Made us wonder if it was really haddock. This is a place to avoid although the waitress was friendly.
