We went as a family of 7, and they quickly accommodated us. The service was excellent. Lobster dinners were ordered and they were quite large and generous portions. We went back for a second meal the next night!

This restaurant has a brilliant location and good service. The food was average, generous in quantity.,If you are looking for excellent fresh food go somewhere else but this is fine for a quick and heavy seafood meal.

View was outstanding. Locals like the food, no idea why. Out of many things. Fish and chips not good. Dry fish (maybe frozen), thick batter, bacon on ceaser salad (not mentioned on menu), fries soggy. Short on waitresses.

You probably haven't had better seafood. $6 CAD for a 6 oz. glass of wine. Recommend: the seafood platter, and chowder bowl. Neither of these (least of all the chowder!) is breaded, which a lot of people seem to like, but not me. Great service,...More

Travelled along Cabot Trail and stopped off at the Seagull Restaurant for dinner. The lobster sandwich was excellent. I had the liver and onions with bacon. We were not disappointed with our meals. The portions were extra generous. Extremely good value. We shared a dessert...More
