It's worth the drive just for the lobster roll and view! They grill the roll on both sides and also grill the lobster meat, then add just a touch of special flavoring and you eat it at a picnic table outside overlooking the coastline. The Chowder House also serves chowder (imagine that) and mussels and crab in season. Very casual. They have beer and soft drinks as well.

Just a great experience. We we served the best chowder in Nova Scotia by three of the nicest young ladies that you could meet. Everything they had on the menu looked great but all 4 of us opted for the chowder. We were certainly not disappointed !! It great to get a seafood chowder that is seafood and not just various fillers. Congratulations girls on a great little restaurant . A bonus is the campground which has a wonderful view. We stayed there a couple of years ago and it was a real treat to watch the lobster boats in the morning from the cliff top. Don't miss this place !!

made the decision to have chowder wherever we stopped and drove to Meat Cove for the view and had the chowder. A 16oz bowl was a great fix in the middle of the afternoon. Great drive and well worth the trip. then went to collect rocks and driftwood on the beach. makes for a great day. Bought the T-shirt.

Drove to Meat Cove on a beautiful, sunny day. The views are breathtaking. The campground setting is awesome. We had lunch at the Chowder Hut. My husband had the seafood chowder, which he said was very good, and I had the burger and coleslaw. The prices are a little high; the bowl of chowder was $12 and my small burger with two tablespoons of coleslaw was $8, but when you can look out over the spectacular scenery while having lunch, we felt it was worth it. The family that owns it is very friendly. Had a nice conversation with one of the daughters working there.

We spent a week touring the Cabot Trail and this was the best place to camp, hands down. Meat Cove is based at the very top of Cape Breton Island and the views are beyond stunning. We camped right at the edge of the cliff and waking up to the sounds of the sea crashing against the beach was a great experience. If you plan to camp in the area you'd be silly not to stay here. The restaurant was closed as it was out of season but that didn't bother us, we just got a fire going and made some dinner, right there on the edge of the cliff. A perfect way to round off a day's exploring.
