Being in Mabou in January doesn't give you many options. We were staying nearby and this was the only open restaurant. Nice warm décor...looks like it would have a great view in the summer. Service okay, although we never did get the second glass of water we requested. The meals seemed to arrive out from the kitchen in an odd... More

We were travelling with another couple through the Cabot Trail and Newfoundland. Along the way, we ate at numerous restaurants, trying various seafood dishes, as well as chowders. We can honestly say that this was the BEST chowder we had during our two weeks of travel.

This is a small off-beat restaurant in a tiny little community that abounds in majestic scenery in Mabou, Nova Scotia. I recently took my elderly mom here in August for a birthday outing. It was a rainy, blustery day and there were a great deal of travelling tourists as well as locals. There was a lengthy lineup, and I was... More

I had the seafood chowder here a few times many years ago and its memory was vividly lodged in my brain. So when we visited Cape Breton for Celtic Colours, I had to go back for the chowder. I was disappointed. The seafood chowder was OK, but nothing to rave about -- the garlic bread I had with it was... More

A very pleasant surprise. This little restaurant has hometown charm. It was the largest quarter pound hamburger that my friend had ever seen and it tasted wonderful! The vegetables were prepared well and desserts were amazing!

A very nice family restaurant. Not as price as some, not fancy, but good service, reasonably priced. We ate a couple of times at this restaurant, choosing the specials each time. Good service.

We ate lunch here and both enjoyed our sandwiches (served on homemade white country bread). At first I was surprised that it didn't come with fries or chips, but then my husband pointed out that it does specify that on the menu, I just hadn't read all the print (you need to order those separately). In the end it was... More
