Obviously the place where the locals go to eat and drink. Good food and quick service! We tried several seafood dishes and enjoyed them.

This place was recommended by staff at Le Village Historique Acadien up the road. It was our first lunch in Nova Scotia since arriving in Yarmouth on the ferry the night before. Friendly staff and lobster poutine. I don't think I need to say more.

This restaurant, situated looking out to the harbor ,naturally offers a variety of fresh fish cooked to perfection. Staff are friendly and it's generally busy but patrons are not rushed to vacate tables. Desserts are rather special also. The display of artworks indicate the talent found in Nova Scotia. A most enjoyable experience at a good price

My husband and I toured the Acadian Village and were very disappointed to learn that their cafe was closed on weekends. The lovely lady at the reception area recommended Dennis Point Cafe and we were very glad she did. We both had lobster rolls which were the special that day. My husband had the creamed version while I had the... More

This is a treasure we just bumped into and boy are we ever glad. The haddock bits were superb as was the traditional lobster roll. Fresh, fresh, fresh. Local fishermen were there for lunch so you know it is good. Not a fancy place but very neat and clean

This place is super - it's a fishing community's diner, but what food! The chowder is superb and in the party of the 8 of us, we all had lobster or fish in some form or other - and the lobster portions were mountainous! My small app of chowder had a full claw in there, and a companion's hot lobster... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident. It's somewhat out of the way in Dennis Point. Glad we found it because we had great service and an absolutely terrific seafood lunch. We had Haddock Bits fried in Parmesan batter. These were light, fluffy, not at all oily and absolutely tasty. We also had seafood chowder that was a meal in... More

We stopped in for lunch looking for lobster poutine...this place is renowned for it. It was delicious with real fresh(not canned or frozen) lobster. Lots of lobster on the plate. A good kids menu and fair prices for everything on the menu.
