We were one of 2 couples when we entered which is always a concern. Food was overlooked especially the fries. Waitress was friendly but as more entered it was clear she was the only one. I am sure there are better places in Chetticamp

We spent a night here while waiting to go whale watching in the AM. We visited the Doryman for dinner and the local entertainment. We met a couple whom we went with. Food and music and company were great. Good little spot.

An original pub built in 1966 with astonishing view of the harbour and Cheticamp Island. Watch fishing boats or whale tour boats while enjoying a fabulous meal, a cold drink, or listening to one of our raved ceilidhs or live music acts. Many locals eat and/or come for fun at this laid back pub. We hope your experience is up to par, and welcome comments on Tripadvisor...
