Very disappointed to drive a fair distance specifically to eat at Ryers only to find out they are only able to sell live lobster for take out for the past two weeks and don't know when that will change. No notice of this on answering...More

If you are looking for an elegant restaurant, this is NOT where to go. However, if you are looking for the best lobster with a nice view, go here! Ryer's steams your lobster right at the counter and cracks the shell for you. Seating is...More

We were staying at the Campground next door, so we visited almost every day. We got our lobster uncooked, because we have a pot (and it is $1C per pound less than cooked). Some days we walked over, and others we were on our way...More

If you want lobster fresh as it can be, in a "rustic" setting, then don't drive past what looks like an industrial unit. My only criticism was of myself for choosing to share a lobster, rather than enjoy one myself.

Lots of hype for this place in the reviews. The lady wasn't very friendly which disappointed me as I was so excited but the lobster was good. I think having a lobster lunch at a nicer restaurant would be what I would pick next time...More

Stopped here on a rainy trip to Peggy's Cove. So glad we did. BEST. LOBSTER. EVER. One of the highlights on our tour of Canada. The owner(?) was awesome! He showed our kids all kinds of different lobsters and even let the kids pet them!!!...More

5 mins round the corner from Peggy's Cove so expect it to be busy with limo and bus services calling ahead and potentially being served ahead of you. Lobster was relatively expensive but as this is on the main tourist route that is to be...More

After visiting Peggy's Cove, we stopped at Ryer Lobsters for lunch. It's a retail waterfront, side Road, simple white building that sells a selection of seafood meats to cook at home along with steamed mussels and boiled lobsters to enjoy at one of their outdoor...More

We had a 1.25 pound lobster. Took about 25 mins from when we got there until we got to eating. It was well worth the wait! Cost us $20 to share one lobster. Very fresh!

No - just lobster or mussels. They are authentic Nova Scotian lobster wholesalers who steam their catch. Take your group to the Sou Westener at Peggy's Cove.

Ryers is just a lobster distributor not even a restaurant but I do believe there is a small quaint café across the street from Ryers that serves more than lobster. Sorry don't know the name.
