Great restaurant with great service and super food! A good restaurant for a family or business dinner. Great view from the restaurant and in the summer there is a small terrace.

This was my third time at this restaurant but second bad experience. The staff are arrogant and not willing to accommodate. Our friends mistakenly made a reservation for four, but there were five of us. Despite there being plenty (3-4') of room between tables, and...lots of space (more than enough for egress and accessibility) the staff refused to add an extra chair to the table. When we politely tried to compromise they became rude. They seemed much more intent on punishing us for mistaking the reservation than making it work. I've never encountered such an inflexible attitude at a Cape Breton restaurant. It was confusing and astonishing. This absolute inability to accommodate such a simple request and a doubling down of stubbornness when we questioned why adds to my distaste from previous visits wjere customer service was also an issue. The staff are generally incompetent and lack customer service skills. Too bad for a place with such good food reviews. They lost our business.More

This is such a gem of a restaurant tucked along the waterfront in North Sydney. Everything was so well done. The decor, the service and oh the food. We dined on appetizers of lobster wontons, apple and fennel salad, and shrimp with mains of ribs,...salmon and scallops. Everything was scrumptious. My brother and his wife were traveling from Ontario and the request was for fresh seafood. Let’s just say they knocked it out of the park. Do yourself a favor and book reservations.More

This month marks the 10th anniversary of our wedding... and people are still talking about the food! With guests travelling for our wedding, we knew we wanted a seaside theme and an exciting meal to show off our island to family and friends. We made...the big ask and couldn't believe it when Chef Moore & Team said yes! (catering was not their focus, this was incredibly kind of them). Guests were completely amazed by the delicious food and haven't stopped talking about it since! Specifically, everyone says "That was the best meal I have ever had at a wedding". We can't thank the Lobster Pound & Moore enough for making everyone's experience on our island so memorable and delicious. If you haven't tried this restaurant yet, call ahead to book a table and enjoy! This is recommended by literally everyone we know :)More

Make it a point during your trip to come here. Call and book your reservation and look forward to the best darn seafood you've ever had. We ordered way too much food and cleaned our plates! The portions were huge and worth every calorie. It's...got a beautiful view of the water, the staff is charming and attentive, and did I mention the food? It was unbelievably superb. It's a fine dining experience, but at a very good price.More

They’ll know who wrote this as we told them we were back at our favourite restaurant in Canada…..and another visit didn’t disappoint. It just reconfirmed our opinion! The service, the food and the vibe were all of the most excellent standard. We tried 3 appys.....Moules with frites, ginger beef and the seafood chowder. Massive portions, amazing taste but not the piece de la resistance.. that was dessert. The most divine sticky toffee pudding and an exquisite vanilla crème brûlée… simply out of this world! Well done, yet again, Chef Rich!More
