A Tasty Lobster Roll!

Our time in NS was fast coming to a close and, as I'd had only one lobster roll during our visit, I felt slightly cheated.

The food was okay but the service was slow and I would say mainly due to being understaffed. We had to wait a time to be seated and not because it was full just that the tables... More

Stayed at the Maritime Inn and enjoyed breakfast and supper here for 2 days. Fine dining quality without big prices! This is a popular spot for local and visitors alike. Nice quiet atmosphere. This restaurant goes the extra mile with elegant decor and linen table clothes. Highly Recommended!

We enjoyed our meal while visiting family, the prices were decent enough, although the seafood chowder was delicious....a little overpriced for the amount, but tasty none the less

Very friendly wait staff. Fast service. I just had breakfast, oatmeal, fruit cup ( fresh ) and toast. Boring, I know, but I wasn't very hungry, so not a very comprehensive food review. I stayed at the INN associated with this restaurant and it was crowded the night before so something must be right.
