Just recently, this place shut down their dine in option. You can only buy lobsters to go. They need better communication about this, either on their website and hopefully through more reviews. Can't comment on the quality of lobsters as I went to another place...More

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.

We have never had any problems with food or staff, and if you have I woud be suspect of your story. I think the govt of NS is clamping down in this establishment because of some jealous competitors. They should be allowed to still cook...More

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.
