    Oysters. Are. Amazing. As a guy from the prairies, I don't get frequent opportunities to experience seafood like this. And I learned that the best thing for washing down oysters from Antigonish, are beers from Tatamagouche! Our server was amazingly helpful, and was patient with all of our questions. I highly recommend, and will definitely return!

    Our shared lobster dinner was delish, as we're our appies, bacon wrapped scallops and coconut shrimp! Carly, our server was perfect, attentive, quick, very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!

    Best fish and chips and tartar sauce! The menu does not lie when it says the single fish is more than enough for a serving. The batter was not at all greasy and had a light crisp crunch! Great outdoor dining.

    If you're looking for a seafood experience that will transport you to the dockside of Halifax, look no further than the Atlantic Warehouse. This waterfront warehouse is home to some of the best seafood in town, and the knowledgeable staff is more than happy to help you find whatever your heart desires. The catches of the day range from succulent shrimp to delicate sole, and everything in between. But the real stars of the show are the lobster and crab. These tender creatures are cooked to perfection and served with a side of melted butter that will make your taste buds sing. Whether you're a seafood lover or just looking to try something new, the Atlantic Warehouse is definitely worth a visit.

    Arrived just before the dinner rush on a Sunday. We were seated right away on the patio. The molasses brown bread was surprisingly sweet and tasty, the oysters were very fresh and the selection was huge. The crab fritters were crispy and delicious. The bacon wrapped scallops were also great. My one critique was the service being a bit slow, especially when waiting for the bill.

    So nice and relaxing. Best experience. Service was excellent. Server was so friendly, helpful, accommodating, kind and they go the extra mile. Parking can be limited and hard to find (depending on time and day). Would recommend the seafood if you're in Nova Scotia. Atmosphere was incredibly. Highly recommended. This place is a must stop if you live or from out of town visiting. Can't wait to go back again!!

    Lobster roll review: not market price, currently menu set at $29, served on toasted bread. It’s “average” and there are better options elsewhere. Kettle chips are nothing special, and not overly fried. Nice environment, decent service, ok drinks.

    This was a great place to relax and cool down on a hot day. The drinks were well made and refreshing. The food was filling and adequately made. A great bonus was that the friendly and welcoming staff allowed pets on the patio and even provided water bowls for them.

    We were very graciously and speedily accommodated even though we showed up with 14 people and no reservation!! Our server was great, she recommended us a few oysters and her favourite dish on the menu was the fish and chips. I went with that, and it was delicious. Really nicely fried. We also got the chowder, which was to us quite under seasoned but that might be a local norm because I’ve seen similar comments on reviews at other spots as well. Great harbour side dinner!!

    Nice place. Fair choice of seafood, sandwiches, clam chowder, oysters etc. Get on the sunny patio or sit in the large barn converted to a dining room. It is not a chic high end dining place but if fits perfectly the location on the waterfront. Skip the lobster roll though - it is underwhelming and too expensive for what it is.

    Location, location, location. The spot is buzzing with activity. I enjoy afternoon drinks on their patio as I have numerous times. The staff is punctual, friendly and accommodating. I had the Lobster roll when I was here last. It was extremely fresh but was a little light on taste. I recommend this place for sunny afternoon drinks with friends. Solo is fun too as the people watching is on point thanks to being located on a main fairway. They also allow your furbabies on the patio as well.

    Place is nice and big but what fairly empty. Staff were lovely. Considering how empty it was we waited over an hour to order our food. 35$ was too much for my steak that only came with fries and 1/4th gristle. Again, staff were lovely but not sure I'd go back. If you really like oysters or seafood I think you'd enjoy this more than me.

    We went here a few times and every time we just noticed the service was so slow. Would take about 6mins each time after being seated before a server greeted us/ask for drinks etc. The fish and chips was super good. Their crispy chicken sandwich is quite a let down. Says it has grilled mushrooms on it but it literally had 2 small slices of mushrooms. Needs more toppings. Overall good experience. Service needs to speed up though.

    Had the steamed lobster. I thought it was going to be expensive in other locations but this one takes the cake. Was on my last day of the trip and I wanted steamed lobster. Thought this location would be cheaper than the other better-known restaurants. Nope, I should have gone to either BN II or FF. The only good thing is thank goodness the lobster was fresh and delicious. So I paid a hefty sum but I can say I kind of got some money's worth. $78 is not my idea of a good time for one lobster.

    Great location, good atmosphere, good service, clean washrooms. Unfortunately they miss the mark a bit with the food. I'll preface it by saying that we did not have any seafood, so I can't speak to that. My quinoa salad was full of great ingredients but totally lacking in flavour (plus the portion was very small). My husband ordered the portobello stack and was equally underwhelmed. I tasted one of his snow peas since he doesn't like them and it tasted like it was boiled until mushy, with no salt. Our daughter's kids meal of chicken fingers and fries was honestly the best thing we ordered. The fries are great and the cookie for dessert was warm and soft. We got some chicken skewers after our entrees since we were still hungry. Nothing exciting there either.

    Avoid this place. Great location but terrible service and limited choices for food. Only type of fresh seafood available is market price lobsters and oysters. Ordered the chef's choice dozen oysters for $35, no explanation given on which type nor what sauces were given. Crab and artichoke dip was definitely canned. Not fresh and for $15 there was likely 4 tablespoons. No cutlery, had to ask for napkins. No plates. Overall very disappointed.
