Had lunch with my wife. I had haddock in a wrap and she had a chicken sandwich. Prime location right on the water. The staff were very friendly and efficient . The food was all good at a reasonable price

When we checked into our B&B we asked what the best place to eat was and the Lobster Kettle was recommended.; interestingly enough though we were there mid June it seemed to be the only restaurant open in Louisbourg. Having said that, we are glad we ate there; but get there early the restaurant closes pretty early in the evening.... More

We had lunch there, with Lobster, Salmon, seafood chowder and pasta. The food was pretty good, except that salmon was a bit dry, and the service was very friendly. Nice place to eat after visiting the fortress.

I recently ordered lunch from the Lobster Kettle and they were actually just setting up for the season, but still took our orders and produced the best fish and chips in town. They are consistently great. Food is not greasey or pretentious and we actually have thier menu in our office waiting room for locals and visitors to read and... More

Although we were late and they were about to close, the staff were amicable and friendly. We had great food and never felt that we had to rush. A good place to eat.

Located right on the ocean, outside deck, great staff, food is as fresh as you can get. Lobster caught daily. Great view of the Fortress and local paintings on the wall for purchase.

I live here in Louisbourg. Moved here 5 years ago and by far, the Lobster Kettle is the best. Fresh, healthy food and friendly staff. It is literally perched over the ocean with outside seating. Some of the other restaurants are either up for sale or closed all the time. Unfortunately, Louisbourg is dependent on tourism and all the restaurants... More
