Just had the lobster clubhouse and yam fries and it was incredible. There was no skimping on either the lobster or the fries. The service was fast and our waitress was super friendly. A must visit!!

You have to look for this hidden gem as it is not street front. We had both breakfast and dinner here during our three day stay in Pictou. The food and service were both good. The wall art is local and imaginative. A good reliable...More

The owners are friendly, interesting folks. The restaurant has that home-town feeling with good food. The creative events such as international dinners add some excitement to the winter evenings. The imaginative spin on old favorites is fun and the food is always fresh as well...More

After the many glowing reviews, we were disappointed when we visited. When we entered the restaurant, the owner seemed too busy to be bothered with us and we found our own table. In fact, all the staff seemed to be out of sorts - it...More
