The prices are ridiculous
40$ before taxe for a small plate of risotto and a piece of bread!!!
they ask 55$ for one lobster...
Abuse that’s what it is.

This place has one thing in its favour...the view of the water! The food is extremely overpriced and underwhelming. We had lobster pot pie, with a few tablespoons of cole slaw and a ton of roasted potatoes for the price $28.50. Keep in mind that the pot pie had minuscule lobster pieces in it! Not much of a meal for the money.

On a two-week road trip through Nova Scotia, This was far and away the worst restaurant we visited. My wife's lobster pot pie (so to speak) had no observable lobster and arrived, after considerable delay, in a small aluminum foil dish like a Swanson"s frozen product. My seafood chowder was similarly meager, and similarly expensive. Our waitress chatted at length with a sales rep from a liquor company (just a guess) but neglected to fill our water glasses or bring the ketchup I requested. The restaurant probably survives on the strength of it's deck overlooking the sea, and the fact that most visitors to Louisbourg only stay for one night.

$28.50 for a 3 inch lobster pie with no lobster is a total rip-off. Only potatoes and gravy. Sad. Avoid this place at all costs.

We had fish and chips and a lobster roll. Both were good. Fries were home made and not over salted.

Yes the decor is sparse but it fits with the location. I enjoyed sitting on the deck right over the water. When we were cold we moved inside and still had a great view warmed by the sun coming through the big windows

Yes it’s a bit pricey but not totally out of line with location. Service was perfect
