The Mrs. and I have been to the Lobster Pound a few times now. Every visit it better than the last. The food is fantastic and service is top notch. Tonight was wings and crab cakes followed by lightly battered haddock/halibut and a gigantic Lobster and shrimp club sandwich. We managed to stuff in a delicious creme broulee before leaving....

I had several excellent dinners there - the steak was cooked "blue" the way I like it. Friendly & efficient service.

Went here to taste the food after hearing a lot of people say it had lobster, ended up having a under cooked steak, and a lobster that was rubbery and didn't taste fresh.

The food and service was outstanding in every way. We had lots of extras from a passionate chef who would grace any of the finest restaurants in the world. I bet Rick Stein would dine here twice a week

The restaurant was recommended by our host and it did not disappoint. The owners and the staff were warm and welcoming, the food was superb, and the service was unparalleled. If I lived in Cape Breton this would be my go to restaurant. The seafood is fresh and cooked to perfection. Also, the decor was lovely and it was nice... More

The food was ok, nothing great, the place was dark and it's small. There is a sign on the front door which is always there and says that's it is full. They also complained about noise that a child made there which really sucked....not impressed at all.
