“OK Food, Nice Place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

The quality of the dinner food here was just OK/average. Nothing remarkable, not bad but not very good either. So for the price, the food is not much worth it. The location of the lodge though is good, fairly secluded and in a nice setting; the restaurant itself looks good (I understand, recently renovated), but also lacks some specific character, which you would expect from a lodge. Service was pleasant. Again, the taste of the food brings nothing special.

“Tasty food small portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Had the occasion to visit this restaurant back in August. Food was exceptionally good quality and well presented however, I had to eat again after leaving due to the extreamely small portions. The service was ok but a little on the slow side. The atmosphere is exceptional and would make a great place to spend a romantic evening out. Just eat before you get there if you have a big growl on.

“Wedding celebration and a wonderful dinner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

It was a beautiful day....lots of sun and slight breeze. It is the perfect place to celebrate a wedding....lots of fine food and excellent private accomodation. Plus a wonderful view of Pictou Island and the entrance to Pictou Harbour. Weddings aside if you want something special the visit the Lodge. The restaurant provides wonderful choices and pick a nice table with a super view! Enjoy life...

“A beautiful way to spend an evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

The atmosphere here at the Lodge is very relaxing. The food is excellent, the service is very good and having dinner with the ocean in front of you just adds to the moment.
