We had a 1.25 pound lobster. Took about 25 mins from when we got there until we got to eating. It was well worth the wait! Cost us $20 to share one lobster. Very fresh!

Met these great guys on a visit to Peggy's Cove in 2009. We took a case of cooked canners home and have been ordering cases annually every June since. Ryers lobster, cocktails & friends makes for a great backyard get together.

Ryer's Retail store is situated on the shore of St. Margaret's Bay. Offering fresh Nova Scotia Lobsters, mussels and oysters. The setting is very rustic a warehouse with a few picnic tables. It is not a restaurant. We are open daily from 10:00am until 5:00pm We take our last order for cooked lobster at 4 pm.
