This was such a clean and nice restaurant. The staff was great and the food good. We ate here twice and were not disappointed on either visit.

This is not fine dining, so why charge as if it were? Cafeteria food in a cafeteria atmosphere - though the ocean view is nice. The most disappointing dinner of our trip.

A great restaurant and close to B & B's. They have a good selection of sea food and non sea food. Staff are extremely friendly and accomodating. The view is of Louisbourg harbour and the fortress. Eat on the balcony and you're serenaded by wind and waves crashing on the rocks. 😀

Our group had seafood chowder (rather bland), fish and chips (okay...but nothing special) and a burger. Food wasn't up to expectations service and view were very good though. Perhaps the lobster is better.

We ate dinner here and really enjoyed our meal. Lobster was good and reasonably priced. Service was a little slow but they are a VERY busy restaurant and it was understandable and acceptable. I would recommend this restaurant.

Enjoyed lunch so much that we came back for dinner after an afternoon at the Fort. Wait staff was friendly and food was delicious.

We had a really good meal here on a very busy evening. My snow crab was really good. We told the server we were going to the theatre after dinner so they made sure that we had our meal in time to get to the theatre

We were looking for a good place for a quick dinner between the Fort closing and the evening entertainment. It was a great day to sit out on the deck. 2 orders of fish-n-chips. Tempura battered, so a little heavy with oil. Average marks. Very friendly service, for sure. ;) We were amused by the little red footies someone knitted... More

The scallop meal we had here was fantastic. We sat on the patio looking at the ocean, it was lovely. Our only complaint was the kids menu. I don't like paying for Kraft dinner at a restaurant, but the fight that would have ensued with my children was not worth saying no.
