Great local feel, no frills, but definitely good food, and eastern atmosphere. It's usually packed, so come early if you don't want to wait.

I would have been happy with just the mussels and salads, but of course enjoyed the lobster that was conveniently prepped so we didn't need to work hard. 3 cold salads came with the meal - very tasty. Very large, crowded place, no reservations, but we went a little late so did not have to wait long.

I was pleasantly surprised with the food., service and friendly of the wait staff. I was also amazed to see how many all you can eat steamed mussels some people can eat. It was quite entertaining . I enjoyed the steamed lobsters and had the opportunity to eat as many mussels as possible but I could only handle the serving... More

We arrived at about 4:45 and it wasn't too busy. My wife and I both ordered the all you can eat crab dinner. The chowder was good but the mussels were great. We both got three plate fulls before we moved onto the main course. The crab was good and we could barely finish it. We took our dessert to... More

The Baddeck Lobster Supper is just what I was hoping it would be--simple, no airs dining with great food. The menu is flexible--you can have the whole deal--mussels, chowder (Wow!), lobster or salmon or steak, dessert, and a non alcoholic drink, or pick only what you want. The lobster I had was a good size--about 1.25 pounds. One beer on... More

We each had a lobster entree with sides. We didn't get the all-you-can eat option but watched it being served - Wow! So many mussels - and they just kept coming! Our lobster was way better than others we'd had on the trip and the sides were very good as well - not just there to fill up space. Then... More

It's not a huge menu, but what they do, they do it well. We actually couldn't get in the first night due to the line outside the restaurant. My guy was determined to try a real lobster dinner while in Nova Scotia, so we made sure to get there early (ie. 5:30) the next night. We were not disappointed. Our... More

We had a reservation, thank god. Many ppl had to wait at least 1 HR outside as no waiting are inside. I'm sure this is very common here it's a very busy place, it would b nice for those waiting to have a covered sitting area to wait for your table. Inside very clean and staff very friendly. Service was... More

Great homey place. Family owned. We love mussels so we got chowder and the bucket. 97 mussels, all perfect, for $16. What's not to like! Homemade breads and pies I believe. We could not stay for dessert or we would have sampled. Great value.
