Rating this as average, but in NS perhaps it deserves a higher rating. Beside the lake, which is nice, and plenty of parking. Looks like they may be trying to offer picnic tables at the lakeside, but right now, the way the place is built,...More

Service was very friendly and the atmosphere casual. I ordered the special, Tarragon-cream Chicken with fresh vegetables and a spinach side salad. The chicken breast was moist, the sauce seasoned well and the vegetables (carrots & zucchini) were perfectly cooked with still a slight crunch....More

We love the Turtleback. The inside is cozy. In the summer the patio was fantastic, and now that it is enclosed we love sitting out there on the side bench seats with the new heat pump or the propane heaters. Fast, friendly service every time....More
