We stopped by and ordered a burger with fries and the cheeseburger poutine. When the food came, the burger was so small....I doubt even four ounces on a very small bun....the fries were not home made but frozen and tasteless. The cheeseburger poutine was smothered...in some kind of sauce that we couldn't identify. For almost $27 we felt ripped off...Never will be stop by here again. Just AWFUL foodMore

Tried to stop at a couple other places. Both were closed. So stopped at this place that was open. Inside seating not open but good for pick up and eating outside. Many people were not obeying the signage but they are trying to run it...properly. Good food.More

The COVID experience is affecting us all. However, the Island View is taking it all in stride! Patience is required no matter where you go, and this required less than most. I would say 15 minutes from order to table, which was outside and the...weather was great! The clams and battered fish were to be counted in the top 5 of NS eateries! The fries were not spectacular but were good, and lots of everything, so no hunger for sure! It is hard to give a 5-5 these days, but, given the circumstances, this was a strong 4 and I recommend this place to anyone who likes good fried seafood! PS: if you like lots of ketchup, bring some.More

stopped for lunch, a real gem. The best clams I have had in years. Friendly staff and reasonable prices. Clams were fresh and cooked to perfection

Good food, friendly service. Great water views while you eat. Lobster rolls and seafood chowder were great. We were told the some of the cast of Oak Island come in often.

This reasonably priced restaurant by the water (with a view of Oak Island, of course) offers good, home cooked meals. The fish sandwich was delicious (they have gluten free bread). The chowder that my husband had was very good, too.

Stopped in after visiting oak island.looked busy for a Sunday night but no issue getting a table for six people. Service was quick and food hot and fresh, probably the fastest service we had ever had. Very good food, our group had fish & chips,...hot hamburger, Philly steak burger and clubhouse. All agreed it was delicious and will definitely stop again when in the area.More

Quite busy. Service a little slow. Ambiance really nice, good view of the ocean. I had the 1 piece of fish and chips, which was excellent. The menu selection had a very good variety There is also a small well stocked bakery and you can...get an ice cream cone if that was all you wanted. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. being an older group with walkers and wheelchairs along with the shaparones the staff helped et folks into into position at the tables.More

There is no patio, but as someone else replied, I also think there are some picnic tables around, but I cannot be certain. They are so good in there, I would not hesitate to call and ask about the picnic tables.
