Meal was excellent, service to match. Outdoor porch seating. Very good value! Another Nova Scotia keeper.

We walked over from our B&B and found a friendly welcome, nice atmosphere and a big screen TV with the Blue Jays in action. My wife ordered the rib steak (which she really enjoyed) while I had the pan seared scallops (very tasty) along with a PEI red ale (try one...very good). The place was quite busy as many couples...

We chose this place for dinner from among the restaurants on the waterfront in Pictou, and it was a good choice. The atmosphere and decor were welcoming and comfortable and our waitress was friendly and helpful. We had steamed mussels as a starter - very yummy. Don't remember what we had for dinner but everything was very good and reasonably... More

we decided to treat ourselves to a fresh lobster lunch. There was not much good to report about our experience. The lobster was not entirely fresh, the baked potato was not fresh but reheated, tough and dry, the "homemade" tartare sauce was a paper thimble of sour cream. We were served "fresh" milk for our tea which curdled when we... More

Only restaurant open in town at 8pm and were rushed to have the kids out by 9pm. Food was adequate but nothing special. Ordered takeout fries and coleslaw after our meal which were very overpriced.The quantity of coleslaw served with fish dinners is negligible. it's gone with one mouthful.

My Wife and I visited here in late September 2016. It was a quiet evening with only one server and a few occupied tables. The server was very friendly and pleasant. The menu was limited and I would rank this establishment moreso as a pub than a full-on restaurant. That said, the food was hot and fresh and the beverages... More

Very slow service, 3 tables came in behind us and were served ahead of us. Reason? Fryer room. Three other tables all had food that required fryer space. Think they forgot our order, not even an apology......and when food arrived, it was cold!

My husband had never had lobster before so we did an online search and this place came up. The website we had looked at said it closed at 9:00 PM, so we thought we had lots of time when we arrived at 7:00 PM. We asked to sit outside on the patio, which faced the water. Soon after, a very... More

While a great resturant, I'm reviewing this as a bar. We like happy hour and good pubs and there was only one on Trip Advisors and with this one, you now have two and a great second one. See the pictures. Even a couple high tops. Beer on tap are IPA's ale's etc. we found a number we liked (does... More

We realized that our night in Pictou was off-season but were flexible and knew that this would be our best bet for a dinner with a water view. The waitress was adorable! She was extremely busy since the restaurant deck filled up quickly all at one time - but we were in no rush and having a good time! I... More
