We stayed at the Keltic Lodge for one night, and the only dining room that was open was the Atlantic. We weren't hungry enough to have the buffet (at $24.95/person), so had fish & chips instead. It was OK at best, and vastly overpriced for what it was. Also passed up on their buffet breakfast ($19 per person) the next morning and had a FABULOUS breakfast at the Main Street Restaurant in Ingonish Beach instead.

We visited the Atlantic Restaurant recently and were very disappointed. It is a casual, buffet style restaurant and the only item that we felt was enjoyable was the fish chowder which was excellent. The rest of the food on offer had been in containers for some time and kept warm. The ham was tough, the salmon tasteless, the chicken had a "rub" over its skin but it may as well have been rubber since the white meat beneath it was like an anaemic white eraser and tasted like one. Desserts were of the supermarket prepackaged variety and cheese was served in chunks, the skin not removed, together with dried fruits, apricots and cranberries. The latter had not suffered from over exposure. It is false economy to eat here - it isn't that cheap - and it is a long while since I have had a meal that was reminiscent of a school dinner. The service was very friendly and efficient.

One of the best lobster roll we have ever eaten and the lobster pot pie was delicious. The service was superb and we really enjoyed our experience at this restaurant.

We ordered simple foods, burger and fries, fish and chips and a sandwich and waited over an hour.....as we got our food they let us know our order got 'lost'. Maybe they could have mentioned that while we were waiting.....with empty glasses sitting in front of us.

In the end my burger was delicious but I'd never go back. Also the fish and chips were not fantastic.
