We chose this place for our seasonal lobster meal. In the past, we frequented New Glasgow for this purpose. My husband said that the fish chowder was the best part of the meal; it was prepared as it should be with plenty seafood, proper thickness and therefore, delicious. The rolls were not home- baked; this was a highlight when dining... More

Arriving from Calgary with a desire to enjoy a great Lobster Supper was short lived. For a mid-August evening during tourist season, I was amazed at how ill prepared the restaurant was to manage the expectations of even a small crowd. At best, the place was filled to 1/4 the normal capacity - and the service staff were literally run... More

Wonderful five course lobster meal! Every course was homemade and delicious and all the wait staff were friendly and patient with us and our four children. Definitely a high point of our trip out east.

My first lobster dinner. Excellent food, prompt service, friendly and efficient. The only disappointments were the interior atmosphere was like a country kitchen decorated by a tacky old woman ( with the exception of the hanging stain glass art work), the carpet needs to go, they need some new chairs ( banquet style chairs), no decor on the tables, and...

This place is definitely worth the #1 spot to eat in Cardigan. Although the interior may be dated, the food makes up for it. We were pleasantly surprised with our meals and the value for the portions. Amazing deal and great service. A must stop!

This pub had the best food ever! You hardly even know the pub is there,most of the signs are for the lobster supper,on the outside of the plain building it just has 1888pub, That all changes when you open that front door, its old wood and antique lined shelves,full of bottles and things from the past are rare. The menu... More

Looking for a casual dinner? The 1888 Pub, attached to Cardigan Lobster Suppers, has got your back... and your belly. Really nice, laid back atmosphere, not too noisy, not too quiet. But the delightful part was the quality of the food. In many places, "pub food" has acquired an oft-deserved rep for being a slightly tastier, yet still on the... More

A wonderful visit with a great view. We were seated by a window and did not wait very long for great service! Thanks again for a great feed of lobster, chowder, potatoes and dessert!

We saw that this place had good reviews so we went. It was the worst meal of the trip ... by far. We arrived and were seated on a Friday night in peak tourist season, and there were only two couples in this large space that looks like an 80's banquet hall. Should have been a sign. Our group of...

First of all, I am very sorry about the mussel smell. The server obviously did not smell them when she brought them to the table - she never would have delivered them. I did speak to the servers, the kitchen staff and our mussel supplier. Our mussel supplier is very proud of his product, and delivers fresh mussels to us... More

We went for dinner based on a suggestion and we're happy we went. Fresh warm rolls, homemade dressing and great lobster were had, along with amazing bread pudding to top it off. Delish!
