    Fantastic experience! We ordered a 2 piece fish and chips and a lobster roll. Both dishes were great but the fish and chips was particularly amazing, the batter was thin and crispy and the fish was wonderfully seasoned! The server was attentive and prompt and the prices were very good!

    While touring Peggy’s Cove, in the afternoon we stopped on the outdoors patio for a bit to eat( fish& chips and a beer). The meal was hot and the tasted great! We then ordered some fresh ginger bread for dessert!

    Great establishment. Came here with my grandmother and mother as part of a trip to Montréal and Halifax. Large selection and variety of souvenirs at a decent price. Though we did not eat at it, the restaurant looks nice and welcoming. Great place to come when visiting Peggy’s Cove.

    I visited the Sou'Wester Restaurant for the first time on June 21st, 2022. The experience was amazing. After checking out the beautiful view near the lighthouse, you can dine in at this wonderful restaurant with fantastic food and even better service. The lobsters that you eat are in a tank at the front of the restaurant! I had ordered the steamed lobster which was incredibly fresh. The meal was prepared with care. It was my first time eating lobster and it was an unforgettable experience! The best part of the restaurant was the lovely staff who served our food, seated us, and engaged in conversation with us. They all made us feel like part of the Sou'Wester family! A special shout out to Jen and Kelley who were amazing, friendly, and hilarious. They helped us out the entire time and they were the best part of my trip to Halifax! Thank you Jen and Kelley!

    Super fun experience. Our server was lovely and so kind. I ordered the lobster and has a great time getting the tasty parts out. It was delicious and a great time. The lobster macaroni was also very good. I will for sure visit again for some amazing lobster!

    The staff was very helpful and accommodating for our special request. We had a superb patio spot and the servers were exceptionally well doing their job. Great training? Great boss? The food was outstanding. Great Halibut Dinner, great oysters and very good lobster roll. Was worth doing the three courses. Thank you very much for the great evening.

    We went to Peggy’s Cove and this restaurant was located beside it, so we decided to have our dinner here. We ordered the Halibut Dinner, Lobster Mac & Cheese and Oysters. We also had their bread with the lobster butter. Oh so delicious!!! Sundhea was very friendly and she recommended the Halibut dinner and it was really good! I would recommend dining here if you are in Peggy’s Cove. Convenient location and reasonable prices.

    The souvenir shop is amazing with a variety of collectables. We visited on a Sunday evening and it was pretty busy. The staff were friendly but it took a lot of time to serve. We did not want to miss the sunset to rushed out without having water as they weren't quick enough. We had haddock fish and chips for dinner, it was quite a decent portion as we couldn't finish it and packed it for home. The hot Chocolate wasn't perfect as the consistency was pretty thin.

    Nice and friendly staff. Great fries, the Tacos quite bland but hugeeee portion! Lobster Mac and cheese...loaded with lobster and super rich. Shrimp app, good kind of average.

    Ordered veggie sandwich with fries, sides of garden salad along with sangria and a strawberry daiquiri. The drinks were okayish, felt like very light on alcohol. The salad was good but I did not like the burger. Would probably try lobster next time. An extra star for the location. Try to find a table to enjoy the lovely sunset.

    We went there during our visit to Peggy's Cove. Nice location right at the lighthouse. We ordered a Lobster dinner, a Lobster sandwich and fish and chips. The prices were a little bit on the pricey side. Lobster was $34 dollars a pound. Food was good especially the fish and chips. The Lobster was delicious but I would have preferred the lobster to be cracked and seasoned for me. I didn't like fighting with trying to get the meat from the shell. But overall the food was good. It probably be a one time place though. Would like to try the other restaurants there as well.
