We had dinner here one night while staying at the adjacent Oceanshore Resort. It was a good experience during the difficult COVID-19 times for restaurants. There was a nice buzz about the place even though distancing rules were being followed with tables and guests. Servers...were masked but efficient with ordering and delivery to the table. We had a lovely maple squash soup to start, followed by a seafood pasta and tortiere (meat pie). Everything was well presented and cooked. There were good local beer choices as well as a range of wines by the glass. The view to the ocean is fine and we witnessed a spectacular sunset which, our server told us, is often the case. Recommended.More

I have been trying to have a meal at Rhubarb for the past 5 years. Every time I was attending a meeting in the Glen Margaret area, Rhubarb would be closed. This time the stars aligned and we got an early dinner time reservation. We...started with Tidal Bay wine (like to support the local Nova Scotia wineries) & Wine/garlic Mussels...tasty! I chose the Seafood Pasta & my friend had the Fish Tacos; we were both happy with our selections. Because the Seafood Pasta is so rich, dessert was not a possibility. Maybe next time.More

We were promptly seated and were waited on in a quick manner. Seafood pasta was out of this world. I choose seafood pasta on any menu and Rhubarb's is delicious. The fish tacos were tasty. Have eaten various items on the menu and all are...worth the trip.More

My wife and I were out viewing homes. We were early for a viewing, and decided to have lunch. After stopping several restaurants that were closed for the season, we happened upon the Rhubarb. What luck. It was a wet, foggy, raw day, the restaurant...was, warm with a fire and friendly welcome My wife had a fish stew and I could have not have asked more from an impromptu lunch, and look forward to dining there again.More

Only minutes from Peggy's, a highly rated hidden gem, popular with the locals, serving local food. The menu creatively highlights healthy & fresh sea fare. A very warm & welcoming atmosphere overlooking the Ocean. Professional customer service. We enjoyed delicious lobster & traditional bennys.
