“Make reservations”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Missed the advice to reserve in advance consequently there was a long line and wait, after being inside a few minutes we decided not to wait because it must have been 85 degrees inside the building, it would have been too uncomfortable. So next time will make reservations on a cool night.

“What an enjoyable supper!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

Decided to check it out after reading reviews from this site. They had live local entertainment (fiddler and keyboard) who were excellent. Beer came in a frosted mug which was good because it was incredibly hot out the day we went. The place was packed but they accommodated our group of 6 with no wait time. The food was great! We had the turkey dinner (stuffing was great! and lots of turkey), Steak sub (juicy and delicious, so good) Pasta (very good), and hamburger (average but hot and juicy). Deserts were fantastic and so was the wait staff!!!

“Best meal in Cape Breton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

Didn't know what to expect, just pulled over here at the end of a long and beautiful day driving the Cabot Trail (counterclockwise). Boy, we were lucky we got in when we did, because the line blew up right after we got seated, and we found out why: Food was great -- my daughter's ribs were fall off the bone, my son's burger was great, my lobster roll was super fresh and tasty, and even the onion rings appy (served in a glass, quite clever!) were tasty and seemed homemade! Great beer, too! To top it off, good music with a nightly ceilidh starting at 6 p.m.! Definitely worth the visit!

“Enjoyed the restaurant and music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

We enjoyed the restaurant, the music and the service, and for the most part, the food was good. However, three of us had lobster and all three were overcooked. It was very disappointing as everything else was delicious. The waiter was excellent. The dessert took our minds off of the lobster as it was really delicious. My friend and I split a strawberry shortcake and the waiter split it into two dishes. It was a good thing that we didn't each order one as the split was more than enough for each of us. Did I mention that it was really delicious?

“Great food and music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

All the reviews are right, this is a great place to eat. Nice food. The place is brightly colored on the outside and doesn't look very local but it is. Make reservations or show up early!
