The Sou'Wester Restaurant and Gift Shop began in 1967 as a small five table tearoom at the side of a house at its present location. It has been expanded over the last five decades to a 180-seat restaurant offering traditional Maritime and seafood dishes, and a two-level gift shop with one of the Maritimes largest selections of giftware. Today, more than 50 years later, The Sou'Wester is still run by the family of its founder, Jack Campbell.

    Waiting time was long to be seated and to order and to get the food. Make sure you have plenty of time. Mussels were very fresh, so good! We had a window seat with good sea view.

    Great food and even better service! Our waitress always smiled, checked up on us numerous times, offered her input on select dishes and really made us feel special as we dined at this restaurant. Only issue was that our open table reservation was never in their books but they found us room.

    The views alone would be enough! The food is excellent; particularly the seafood chowder. The wait staff is helpful and friendly. It’s all good.

    Our server, Aliegh, was delightful. All servers we interacted with were very welcoming. Our food was all first rate. Although I enjoyed the bruschetta, in my view it should be served in the traditional way. Having the toppings piled separately from the bread is fine for one person but not for a shared dish and do-it-yourself is less than appropriate. I love your chowder but will not order it as it is served in what is essentially a deep saucer, not in a proper soup bowl shown in your advertising and thus in too small a quantity. Those issues aside, the food, ambience and service were excellent. It keeps us coming back and, as on this last occasion, happy to bring guests. Well done.
