Sou'Wester Gift & Restaurant
It was my husband’s birthday. He ordered the two piece fish and chips. Being from Nova Scotia we’ve eaten a lot of fish and chips. Considering this is a restaurant at one of Nova Scotia’s heritage sites, we expected the highest quality, however his comment is “fair“. I ordered the most expensive entrée(other than a lobster dinner) at $25 for the halibut dinner. Halibut being expensive and not easily come by, I too expected it to be of the highest quality. The fish was over done, mashed potatoes just warm and the boiled vegetables under done. The coleslaw was delicious.
We had a second waitress ask us if there was anything we needed, my husband said he would like to have some ketchup. She never brought it. I also noticed she was waiting on another table, and they too reminded her that she had forgotten to bring some thing to their table.
Our reservation was for 4:30 PM. It wasn’t busy. We were expecting it to be fairly quiet. However one group that sat in the corner table by the big windows, had a male family member who was too loud. They left, shortly after a father and his two children came in. One of the children was quite loud. I realize the restaurant has no control over noisy patrons.
It’s very much a dated diner ambiance. I think it’s time for an interior update/refresh to coincide with the addition of the beautiful observation deck being constructed outside.
I was disappointed with our experience in the restaurant. I’ve heard from many people that it was a great restaurant with great food. Being a proud Nova Scotian, I was really expecting and hoping that it would be a positive memorable experience, so we too could “brag“ about the restaurant at Peggy’s Cove.
We weren’t bothered by the construction surrounding the restaurant, as we were expecting that. We enjoyed our time outside on the rocks and around the lighthouse.
Great food and service !!
And breath taking scenery.........
We were seated immediately, great view, food came fast, service was great!
We had a window table with a great view. We really enjoyed that. The food was ok, I had fish tacos which I quite enjoyed. I wish I could say the same for the scallop burger. It was extremely over cooked, dry, and tasteless. The cole slaw was great! The gingerbread, usually very good, was over cooked as well. Service was good.
Love the view of the Peggy's Cove light house. Our waitress was the best and the seafood was fresh. I have never been to Peggy's Cove with so few people but that is because of the virus
Friendly service, excellent seafood platter, great children's menu, updated washrooms.
Took my girlfriend to Peggy’s Cove for her birthday as we were visiting from Winnipeg. The waitress was very friendly and the food came VERY quickly (fish and chips along with seafood chowder). For desert we got the blueberry pie and told the waitress it was her birthday, she even put a candle in the pie making our experience very special.
