After visiting the fortress my wife and I went for lunch to the Lobster Kettle. We had mussels and lobster, and it was all delicious! The views are nice, the premises very clean and the staff was just amazing. Recommended.

We came for the food, but left loving the service. Our server was fantastic and represented the best in Nova Scotian hospitality. The food is casual but tasty and the portions are generous. We especially loved the Salted Cod Fish Cakes.

This restaurant is directly over the water! Sit inside or out on the patio. The lobster and crab are just off the boat fresh and cooked to perfection! The garlic butter to dip it in is delicious! We were very happy with the reasonable price,...More

Food was delicious. Staff super friendly. This was the first lobster on the island for me! Decor a bit dated and I think the tables could be a bit bigger.. Lots going on with multiple plates and places to put the parts.. But loved it.
