One of our best meals on Cape Breton. We had the whole lobster and the crab legs. Nice fall weather allowed us to sit on the deck. Magical evening. Good service for friendly staff.

After speaking with our B & B host we decided to try the Lobster Kettle for dinner. I wasn't all that hungry so I had a bowl of seafood chowder. It was one of the best that I tried in the 2 weeks we spent in the Maritimes and I tried quite a number while on vacation. My wife had... More

My friends and I ate here on one of the last sunny, warm days in October. The restaurant is on the water, so we took advantage of the weather and sat on the deck. Since lobster is the specialty of the house, hence the name, I ordered lobster poutine. It was delicious, served with a seafood chowder rather than the... More

We were fortunate enough to eat at the Lobster Kettle on their last night open for the 2016 season. There is nothing special about this restaurant, the decor is simple but clean, the location is on the water, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The lobster dinner is one of the best I have had on this Maritime vacation.... More

After leaving church on Saturday evening during a recent trip to Fortress Louisburg, we noticed groups of parishioners walking past their parked cars and heading for the waterfront. We decided to explore what was luring them and found the Lobster Kettle Restaurant, which is perched on the edge of the harbor with a nice view. Local knowledge paid off. We... More

Great place to eat in Louisbourg. It's on the water. Look for the sign as you drive down the main street. It's a short 400 meters off the "main drag".. The location is great only to be outdone by a menu with lots of seafood choices. I had the lobster, which was excellent, What's not to love about the adventure... More

We ate here at about 3:30 pm. after spending the day at Louisbourg. Not a fancy building, but it is waterfront and has a big patio deck out on the water. Too windy the day we were there to eat outside but we had a beautiful view from our window seat of Louisbourg across the harbour. The restaurant was very... More

Once again on my Rotary trip in Canada I left hungry. I ordered the crab sandwich which came with salad. Firstly I asked if they could do a burbon and coke. Initially they said yes but later reported that they had no burbon. The sandwich, which was toasted was very small but well filled. The cold slow (no salad) was... More
