Went here based on the reviews and the fact that they're about the only lobster place near the ferry, but was pleased with the fact they didn't over pack the place on a Friday night at peak time. They put a sign up saying sorry they couldn't take more diners and yet they kept the searing limited. Thankful I made... More

We went on the recommendation from the owner of A Boat to Sea B&B. The non- descript exterior does nothing to foreshadow the cool vibe and delicious food inside.The lobster had claws as big as my fist and Korean BBQ was a tasty treat. We will definitely return to this hidden gem on our next Cape Bretton adventure

We had the most amazing meal. From the moment we made the reservation to the moment we left the experience was fantastic. We even started our meal with a few surprise apps!! We spent the entire meal talking about the food and who had the best.

I've eaten here a few times and the food is absolutely amazing! The portion sizes are more than generous and the service is very sincere! You have to eat here, if you don't then you are missing out!

We attended this facility four weeks ago as it was one of our favorite eating establishments in the area. Our favorite plate was the Coconut Curry dish. It is a very good dish though, on the pricier side, for those tike this type of food. The problem arose when we asked for an additional plate as we had always shared... More

It's unfortunate you felt the need to give an anonymous review online and not address the fact with us. Perhaps you could have ordered one of our lighter dishes as you knew our menu so well. How sad a local has to slander a little local restaurant to make the world a better place. We refuse this option to those... More
