Great food truck, sweet, fresh seafood, no pre-breaded frozen stuff here. Best shrimp I've had anywhere! Wish he could clone himself and follow me around the island to all the special events I attend.

We tried Capt'n Kenny's Fish and chips when we were in Port Hawkesbury. They were delicious! Freshly made to order. The sauce was also delicious. If we return to Cape Breton we will go back to eat here again.

Best fish and chips we had on our fish and chips trail... Crispy, flaky fish in a delicate batter served with a great homemade tartar sauce. We ordered one plate with 2 pieces of fish, it was huge... Great experience ...

Look for Captain Kenny's in Arichat or Port Hawkesbury and make sure you stop by. The food is A1 and owner and staff very friendly.
