I'm a chowder hound, I admit it. When we went into this restaurant, the menu is written above the cash register. While it has everything written out, it is generic. An example is that you will see bagel sandwich, but there is no description of what's on it. If you want to know, you'll have to ask.

I got chowder and a chai latte. The chowder was very pricey for the amount you get. I had to add a lot of pepper for some flavor. The same could be said for the latte...very little flavor and nothing outstanding.

The restaurant has an attached shop with gifts and other odds and ends that can be purchased. We did not spend much time there, but if you come in from the back as we did, you have to go through it to get to the restaurant.

There is outdoor seating available with a nice view.

We were really pleased with our choice of restaurants. The owner warmly welcomed us and took our meal orders. His pride in ownership and attention to every detail showed. The food was excellent, the view of the lighthouse was nice from the verandah and the friendly service was very much appreciated. We highly recommend this restaurant. We wished we lived closer!! Such a special place in Pictou.

Like others, we lucked out finding Carver's while walking the charming town of Pictou. The casual and friendly atmosphere where locals and tourists alike feel home was a highlight of our six week tour of western Canada. The seafood chowder is one of the better one we found in NB, PEI and NB. The hospitality is way impressive. We visited the place twice, two weeks apart in June 2013. On our second visit, we were welcomed like regulars, ushered to "our" table and included in the friendly banter that makes this place special.

We stopped just by chance at this Pub and found the Manager and any of the locals that we spoke to were so friendly. And yes the Lobster Sandwich was great. They have a lovely little craft store at the back of the premises with a lovely choice of items to purchase. We had such fun chatting with the people we called back there after travelling around Cape Breton
