The breakfast was really good and there was a lot of food for one person which I am not complaining as my husband really enjoyed it.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

While the staff was friendly, it did not make up for the overpriced small portions that lacked flavor and interest. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Fantastic Lakeside Dining.”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

The view of Bras d'Or Lakes is to die for. The servers were friendly and prompt. The Lobster was excellent, as was the chowder. The Jost Pinot Grigio was a delightful surprise. We came back the second night to see if things were really that good, and they were. Sitting by the fire-pit after a great meal finished off our visit. Next time we will be staying at the resort itself, which impressed me very much as a Travel Consultant. Bravo Inverary, impeccable!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Excellent service but for the price the food left much to be desired. The lobster rissoto was saturated in butter and the steak was totally tasteless.
