We pulled off the road to Baddeck after setting up our campsite at the local provincial park. Didn't expect much from the meal, but had the best halibut meal in the two weeks I was on the island. Tried many other places and nothing compared....More

This was the best meal I ever had in a restaurant. Steak was excellent and the coleslaw hit my taste buds bang on. Conversation with the owner was great.

Auld Brass Door fills exactly the void this area needs. It is quintessential Cape Breton, with a underplayed atmosphere. What the Door has going for it is Dick and Ann, who are great hosts. I didn't know what to expect as I read other reviews...More

International Fare Wae A Cape Breton Flair aptly describes the menu which ranges from appetizers/salads/soups/burgers/pastas/seafoods/steaks and beyond...but always remember to leave room for dessert. Taste our "quietly understated" Homemade chowders and then you be the judge as to who has the best chowder in Cape Breton. Open later than others around and with "wing nights till 2.00A.M on fridays and saturdays".
