“Pub atmosphere, great view, food surprisingly great!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

At first glance, this appears to be a pub gearing to drinking and local entertainment. One does not go here for the ambiance, but the ocean view is extraordinary. The seafood dinners we ordered were first rate and we enjoyed the fiddle music in conjunction with the Celtic Colours Festival. Can't wait to dine here again!

“A Local Gem”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

On a recent trip to Cape Breton we experienced The Doryman Pub on a Saturday afternoon. There was great local fiddle music and fresh fish on the menu. It was a great location to experience the local ambience. It is definitely a place we will visit again.

“Fun place off the tourist trail - great music”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

We were lucky enough to wander in here when they had a céilidh - a informal musical jam session. It was fabulous. This very laid back place with long tables was filled with locals who were most appreciative of the Celtic music and the beer. One young woman got up and did an impromptu step dance. Both the fiddling and the fried clams were outstanding.

“Best place in Cheticamp for Acadian fiddlers and music.”
Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Saturday afternoon music from 2pm is excellent and well attended by locals and tourists.
Best of the local musicians and traditional Acadian fiddlers are often featured. (There is a $6 cover charge, which is well worth it).
Service and drinks were excellent.

“Best food in town!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Nothing will beat a meal at the Doryman. Whether it is the friendly staff, or the delicious food, it has never let me down. Doryman burgers are delicious, along with their pan-fried fish and chips. There is nothing like it around! Great atmosphere and food/beverages are well priced. Highly recommend the Doryman!
