Take the opportunity to relax on our large seaside deck and listen to the soothing sounds of the waves as they gently reach the shoreline. No other restaurant in Cape Breton can offer a view such as this! Feel the ocean breeze and smell the salt air, as mariners have been doing for hundreds of years.
Shown here is the fishing vessel Oma & Opa hauling lobster traps in the harbour directly in front of the Lobster Kettle.  This is a family owned lobster boat that harvests some of the Fresh Atlantic Lobster served to guests at the Lobster Kettle.  The Lobster Kettle's harbourside location offers guests a unique opportunity to see how the lobster dinner they are getting is harvested, right in front of their dinner table!
Hey Kids!  Be sure to take a free souvenir shell from our crate for your collection before you leave.  They are pretty popular so get them while they last!
