I do not consider myself a lobster lover, but in would have it again at this place. We got the all meal deal, mussels, lobster, chowder, and dessert with a beer for less than $100. A great deal and a great dinner. May even get back there again before the vacation is over.

This restaurant looks like a community hall, but don't be put off, because the seafood is fresh and delicious, the service is friendly and efficient, and the desserts are homemade like your grandma used to make. Oh, I also loved the homemade oatcakes that came in the breadbasket. We feasted on chowder, mussels, lobster and salmon. Then we somehow managed... More

Stopped on way back from Louisberg. Very hungry and wanted an authentic maritime seafood dinner. Best choice of the trip! Busy so service wasn't amazing but very personable as you would expect on the east coast. Lobster, chowder and mussels were exactly what we wanted and taste was fresh and not overly seasoned.

This was much better than expected. Outside looked simple, but inside clean and decorated nicely. Food was all good (except chowder, we didn't like that). Crab was some of the best I've ever had. Staff was so nice. Its pricey compared to other meals but worth it for all you get, and lobster everywhere is pricey right now.

We stopped here for dinner and had the all you can eat mussels and chowder with the Lobster. The salads that came with the lobster were delicious. It is not fancy but a fun place to eat. Our waitress was excellent.

As three of us had steak, wanted to say that it was very good, so there is a great alternative for those who don't like lobster. My husband had the lobster which he thoroughly enjoyed and the all you could eat mussels and chowder.. He had three bowls of chowder!!! Not fancy decor but great food.

Great fast & plentiful food and friendly service. This family run restaurant was great. You can really get your fill of chowder and mussels. The main entrees looked and tasted great too. It was a short wait to be seated and start the feast. Would highly recommend

We stayed in Baddeck quite unexpectedly. We were told that "Baddeck Lobster Supper" was "The Place to eat", they were not wrong!! A bit of a wait but well worth the time. Great service, amazing food, very friendly staff. An amazing Cape Breton experience. Can't wait for my next visit there. Don't miss this one!

We called in beforehand on an August Friday afternoon to see if we could book, but were told we would have to queue (join the line, in American). We came back at around 6.45pm to find the narrow hallway packed with people, and a forecast of a half hour wait for everyone. The 'no booking' did not apply to a... More

When in the maritimes we were told we must try one of these suppers. Baddeck was the town we chose to do this. After a long time walking around looking for the place we finally stumbled upon it and by then we had worked up an appetite! Small wait in the crowded narrow hallway and we were finally seated in...
