We went during a holiday and the place was jammed packed...But that didn't stop them from providing us with great service. We didn't have a reservation but we were seated within 20 minutes. Their mushroom caps and chicken bombs were delicious. My husband and I ordered the steak and my son had the pecan encrusted chicken and it was all... More

Anytime I come home to Cape Breton I always need to stop here. The food and atmosphere is amazing. The last time we ate here I had the Peanut Bowl and it was delicious!

This was a very high quality meal, a great amount of food, and all for $10 with their lunch special. Butternut squash soup, half sandwich with a very tasty mustard, and a small side salad that was wonderful, with amazing maple balsamic dressing made in house. Delicious. I thought it took slightly long to get to me, considering it was... More

Whether you like seafood, meat or are a vegetarian, you will not be disappointed. This establishment knows how to prepare consistently delicious combinations. You may have to wait because they do not take reservations. I highly recommend it. August 2016

We were so happy to find this restaurant. This would be a fabulous restaurant in a large city, what an exceptional find in a small town. The food was excellent, freshly prepared, large portions. There were vegan and gluten free options. Service was quick, lovely decor, and friendly staff. The only disappointment was that they were closed on Sunday so... More

This place when it was first built was a good place to go into, now after a while went back into black spoon they became more over priced, and after what little food I gotten, didn't feel so well after it.
