As we were staying in Port Hood for a couple of nights and we didn't want to drive to Mabou, we decided to try the Clove Hitch. It's a busy place but there isn't really any competition in the area which is more the reason than the fabulous food.

Still, I had a very good Greek salad which was reasonably priced at $8.50. My husband had the halibut special that was also well priced at $17. His halibut was slightly over-cooked and dry but overall the meals were good, the service good and the prices very good for the Maritimes.

I wouldn't go out of my way to eat at this restaurant but if you are passing by, you will get a good meal with friendly service for a decent price. Their sign also said they were open till 11 which in this part of the world is almost unheard of. We have seen so many restaurants that close at 8:00 pm or even earlier.

On July 30th we ate here and sat at our table for no less than 20 minutes before being acknowledged by the wait staff.
Once we did get our food it was delicious (thankfully) or perhaps we were just too hungry to care at that point.
The establishment wasn't overly busy so that wasn't an excuse.

Patrons entering AFTER we did were being served first.
Interesting way of doing business for sure!
We won't be returning however.

Thank maggie k

We had dinner and it was the first meal we'd had for a while that appeared to be cooked by a 'chef' rather than a 'cook'. Excellent seafood and good chicken at reasonable prices. We were there on a Tuesday night, 'Ladies Night', and it was very busy but the service was still cheerful, friendly and efficient. Well worth stoping and eating at.

My wife and I stopped into the clove hitch in port hood for lunch and were both very pleased. A great choice on the menu and reasonable prices. Friendly bright place to be for a lunch. Wish we could have stayed longer in town.

It is not spectacular from the roadside, but is very nice inside. We had excellent seafood, the staff was wonderful, and they had a good bar with Nova Scotia and other beers on tap.
