The ringer burger is excellent. It was featured in "you gotta eat here". Service was ok with a very busy place. Prices are good.

We have visited this establishment several times and have never been disappointed. The last occasion was shortly before they closed for the winter so were running down their stocks. By negotiation with the proprieter a good tasty vegetarian (as requested) meal was conjured up. Very friendly and knowledgable service. It looks a bit basic on arrival but the service and... More

Great food and excellent service. Lovely music. We definitely recommend the Ringer burger. Atmosphere makes you feel like you can stay for hours.

Should've ordered the bucket of mussels which were the special or the Ringer that was the burger featured on the food network, but my partner ordered the lobster club instead. Mistake. Insufficient lobster filling and homemade fries were ordered well-done but had to be replaced as weren't. My vegetarian quesadilla was soggy, cheese was undetectable and basically was wet onions,...

My wife and I decided to try the Coastal Restaurant and Pub because of its being on "You Gotta Eat Here" on the Food Network. I was going to have fish but decided on the Big Lebowski Burger instead. The Big Lebowski is my king of burger, tasty, huge, and sloppy. Be sure to ask for extra napkins! The mushroom... More

After a long wait (it seemed like the only decent place in miles), we were seated, order taken (since we already knew what we wanted) and then forgotten about until food came which was about 45mins later. My husband ordered 'the ringer' which was made popular by the show You Gotta Eat Here. It was nothing to write home about.... More

On our way back from white point to wreck cove we stopped here. The service was very nice and the menu selection varied. Prices were very reasonable.

Spent the day in Ingonish and enjoyed supper at the Coastal Restaurant. We both had burgers, they were really good. I had The Ringer, it was featured on "You Gotta Eat Here", it was good but I found the sauce salty. Good service, lots to choose from on the menu and nice atmosphere. We would eat here again when we... More

We enjoyed the food and it is reasonably priced but they had live music that night. The singer was in tune and enjoyable but it was hard to have a conversation with our group. Overall a good visit but I believe we might have stayed for drinks and dessert if the music was not so loud.
