Reviewed June 18, 2013

Dress up dinner -- simple way to be a little big 18th century, have some seafood and hear some tunes -- French and Cape Breton traditional

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We like the dressing and the going back in time also. This is the fourth year that the Point of View has put on the Beggars Banquet and we never tire of sharing it with our guests. We are also proud of our menu and work hard at preparing the meals fresh and from scratch every day. Thanks again for taking part.

“Entertainment is Seasonal”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

I think it might be good to add that the entertainment is only seasonal - we stayed at the point of view suites and ate at the restaurant but there was no entertainment. The entertainment doesn't start until July. Just in case someone is mislead by the reviews and drives all the way out.
The food at the restaurant was good though. We were there in June so there was no entertainment .

Sorry I missed answering this review sooner. Seeing as we are not yet in our dining experience season as of yet, I did not check the site and for that I apologize. We officially open our season on July 1 and close August 31. Though our menu is slightly smaller and our entertainment is not available for your pleasure, our food is made fresh from scratch daily and our price is reduced to reflect the time of season. We are glad that you did enjoy this part of our establishment also. Thank you for your review in this section and in the accommodation section. We truly appreciate the input.

“Beggar's Banquet Fun”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

My husband and I had the pleasure of attending the Beggar's Banquet in July, 2011. As I was the winner of a ticket that Beggar's Banquet had on Facebook, he thought it would be a neat idea to go. It was a lot of fun dressing up in period costume, as it was something I always wanted to do :) Definitely well worth the $39 dollars, especially for the scrumptious feast of crab and halibut chowder, which I can describe in one word: YUMMY!!!!

“Allouette anyone?”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

It was just plain fun! Good food and entertainment. Didn't think we'd like "playing dressup" in colonial garb, but it was actually quite fun to have everyone in the room dressed alike.

We're happy you enjoyed playing dress-up. We play dress-up from July 1-August 31. We get sad to see the season end. We derive great pleasure seeing the fun our patrons have. They surprise themselves when they come out of their shells and partake in the entire event. The satisfaction we get just watching is quite the blessing. Thank you for sharing your experience with us with all who will read it, and thank you for staying here at the Point of View.

“Fun place for a meal”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Fresh seafood was the highlight. The rest of the meal was average but the staff are friendly and helpful. The period costumes add to the fun.
