Whether you buy it to bring it home or you eat right on the spot, their lobsters are amazing. Although a bit windy on the day we visited, we sat outside and truly enjoyed our lobsters and mussels.

No - just lobster or mussels. They are authentic Nova Scotian lobster wholesalers who steam their catch. Take your group to the Sou Westener at Peggy's Cove.

Ryers is just a lobster distributor not even a restaurant but I do believe there is a small quaint café across the street from Ryers that serves more than lobster. Sorry don't know the name.
