We had a wonderful time at Pictou Lodge, as we always do. The staff is professional, warm, and welcoming and so helpful when it comes to recommending food and drink. The atmosphere was wonderful, the food was amazing, and our hostess and waitress were great. We can't wait to go back next year when they are open for the season again.

Surprisingly great meal. We were not expecting the high quality. Crab cakes appetizer was as tasty as any I've eaten. Swordfish was perfectly cooked. Steak was a little tough and not rare as requested. Service was attentive. We will return.

We went for breakfast at 7am. The sunrise & ocean view was so beautiful. Our server was the best and the eggs benedict were perfect!

I love ❤️ eating at Pictou Lodge and the ambience is wonderful. Overall the food is great but I found my halibut entree was slightly overcooked so rather dry. The vegetables were cooked to perfection. Two of my friends had the salmon and they lived it.

The food was good but the price was high for the quality. The 35 dollar strip loin steak was thin with a lot of gristle it was underwhelming. My halibut was very good the waitress ddidd not ask me would l prefer rice, it would have been a better fit instead of mashed potatoes. The service was slow. Our special occasion dinner was ruined by the lack luster service, no table cloth as in the photo. The bar waiter went the extra mile and set up the deck outdoors for us to enjoy our glass of champagne. He was most pleasant. So in conclusion the service and ambience was lacking .This was not the place for a special occasion. It had the feel of summer camp dining hall and we should have had burgers and fries. It was certainly not the elegant evening out with tablecloth and fine dining as in their photo on line and in our past experience.

You can never go wrong with a trip to Pictou Lodge. Ocean views as far as the eye can see. Our waitress Amy was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Seafood chowder is think and full of fish and flavour. Lobster mac and cheese is creamy and delicious, if I had one recommendation it would be to cut back a bit on the green onion. Can't wait to return next year.

I loved my meal (scallop risotto) but my dining partner’s food kept her up with a sore tummy.
Our service was outstanding and we went for the view anyways! :)

Weather was not on our side but we were mis informed in the reviews for the lodge. Not as much to do. Pool was cold, boats were old horse shoe pit broke, no hiking trails. We only had breakfast and it was expensive and not great. People not very friendly. Just not a good overall experience for what we paid.
