Located in the downtown core of Cheticamp, Family run business. Large menu, but typical pub type food, large establishment, very busy on the weekends as it is one of the only restaurants in town that have live music. Outdoor patio, but you must order food to sit out there, separate dining room and... read more

Sitting on the deck is beautiful at sunset. We had the fish and chips. They were perfectly battered. Service was good.

We didn't know at the time, but the seafood, especially the scallops, was mediocre at best. The food seemed commercial, not fresh as the food was on the rest of our stay on Cape Breton. The music was lovely, the service fine and friendly, but I'd never go back.

Very simply tasteless !! I don't know what else to say other than I would never eat there again. I ordered the Acadian special - meat pie which came with frozen veggies and potato or rice - even the rice was awful

A really good meal (complete with delicious dessert) in a family friendly restaurant in the heart of Cheticamp. You can't miss the lighthouse from the road and you shouldn't miss the meal inside! Offering both a lounge area (with it's own menu) and a family restaurant (where I ate) the location offers something for a wide variety of travelers and... More

Do NOT get this fish and chips. Both my mom and I had it and the fish was breaded in a very thick batter. However, they do have a huge menu and a very clean restaurant with friendly staff and located just off the main highway. Whatever type of fish you get, make sure it's not the fish and chips....

We had dinner here and ended up staying for the entertainment. We stuck with basic burgers and wings; which were delicious and very fresh. We tried some Moosehead and other local beers. Our waitress was so sweet and each time she brought a fresh bottle of beer she also brought us a fresh frozen mug!! Some places don't do that;... More

We ordered acadian platter, cordon bleu and salads.Veggies coming with our main were previously frozen and then overcooked ans had no taste.I call them dead. Sauces were not home made, we got pouches from the store which I did't expect from the restaurant but rather a fish and chips trailer or take out place. Chicken was very mild, and nothing... More
