    Excellent meal, excellent service. We love the Founders House and are never disappointed. The food, I believe, is one of the best in Nova Scotia. They also vary the menu for a vegetarian which his very appreciated. The service is attentive, but not over the top. We highly recommend The Founders House.

    Overall the meal was delicious and our server was courteous, efficient and friendly. We eagerly anticipated a wonderful meal at Founders as we've visited your establishment many times and have always been impressed with the food, wine list and service. My only disappointment was that the deep-fried Acadian goat cheese tasted like blue cheese.... and neither of us are fond of blue cheese. Otherwise, a lovely meal to celebrate Mother's Day.

    My wife and I took treated ourselves to a Mother’s Day brunch. I got chicken and waffles; she got the Eggs Benedict. Her poached eggs were cooked perfectly. The hollandaise was rich and buttery. The pea meal bacon was surprisingly sweet, but worked well the savoriness of the other components on the plate. My fried chicken was crispy and juicy. The waffles were crispy and yeasty (the way I like them), and the simple hot sauce (which could’ve been spicier honestly) was quite flavorful and worked well with the chicken. And the Bête Noire for dessert was amazing, especially the vanilla ice cream. The service was awesome. Our server was welcoming and answered every question we had. Definitely going back again.

    I have heard many positive things about Founders House so was greatly anticipating our visit. The room and table settings were lovely and the service was excellent. It was a special 5 course 2 chef collaboration so we thought we were in for a great meal. Unfortunately the meal itself did not live up to the hype. We found one course very tasty and another one quite good. The other three courses were a disappointment taste wise although the presentation was nice. The food of these courses was very bland ( little to no taste) and the seafood was overcooked. I thought the meal was overpriced given our experience. The international wine pairings were excellent. Kudos to the friendly and attentive wait staff! I will try the restaurant again as it’s possible it was an off night. Typically, people rave about the food here.

    Dining at Founders has always been a culinary delight. As trite as that sounds, just let me state further that the service has always been attentive, friendly, astute with just the right level of attention. Never intrusive or overly friendly. And then there's the food. Chef is all about local and with superb quality in the local "pantry" what we have experienced was delicious, just creative enough without resorting to nitrogen or live bugs on the plate. All in all, an excellent dining experience in a rural setting worth every penny.

    If you live in Nova Scotia or visit the beautiful province at any time, it is an absolute shame if you have not dined at Founders House. Chef Chris Pyne is amazing with his creations. Every morsel is carefully prepared and presented with the utmost detail. Service is second to none with each culinary course explained precisely and enthusiastically, much to everyone's delight. It is any foodies dream in every bite. From the amuse bouche, duck confit caesar salad to the chocolate melt in your mouth dessert as the grand finale and everything in between you will not be disappointed. A memorable occasion or a treat just because this place is second to none and worth the drive if you do not live nearby. I could go on and there is more to say but trust me you need to definitely add this treasure to your list, I guarantee you will have rave reviews!

    Worth the drive to Annapolis Royal. Service and quality of meal choices were flawless. Would recommend the oysters, smoked Digby scallops (Small Plates) and the fried chicken salad. Restaurant will accommodate allergies and dietary restrictions with advance notice.
