“Pretty good food. Decent service. Okay value.”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We stayed in Baddeck for a couple of nights during a week-long trip to NS this summer. We'd already had one meal in town (Baddeck Lobster Suppers) and were looking for another spot for the second night. We settled on this place.

The dining room was cozy - a little tighter than I'd usually like. The service was nice and friendly. The food was fine, but probably below average for our trip (we had some great meals in NS).

There was a live musician playing the night we were there, who we didn't enjoy. The music was much too loud for that small room, and he was a little goofy.

Overall, it was an okay meal. We'd probably look for somewhere else next time, though.

Mom and pop restaurant. Average quality comfort food. Atmosphere lacking. Prices reasonable. Service poor and slow.

“Reasonably priced, unpretentious meals”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

We stopped here for a late lunch one day while staying in Baddeck. While the interior of the restaurant looks like your grandma's Home Interiors catalogue exploded in it, the staff are friendly and efficient, and the food tastes good. Menu is reasonably priced, unpretentious, and homey.

“Open later than most”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

On a little side street off the main drag. Just behind Tom's Pizza. One of a few places that stay open past 6 PM. An alternative to hotel dining rooms. We just wanted a salad that night and we got one here. Rather warm inside since there seems to be no a/c. Couldn't sit at the table we wanted because one of the chairs was being used to keep the back door open for ventilation.Didn't try any main dishes, so can't comment there.

“Quaint and Cute”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Ate here in September 2011 and enjoyed it so much, we returned in September 2012.
Althought the atmospher was the same and the staff were still very friendly and helpful, the portion sizes were indeed, significantly smaller. I was somewhat disappointed, given our previous experiences here.
