We stopped in for supper, on a whim, and it was awesome. I had the pizza special of chicken, mango and goat cheese, and it was the best pizza I ever had. The biscuits were incredible, nothing beats homemade!! Service was great, very friendly staff, would highly recommend this to anyone in the area!

Let me start by saying the fish and chips were arguably the best I've ever had, and the food in general was great (except for old, soggy coleslaw). Service was another story though! We waited a good 5 minutes before we were even acknowledged, and were seated for a long wait without even water! Waitress did not introduce herself, did not refill our waters, and generally lacked service graces. I think this place would be better off as a fish and chips truck

We decided to stop for food before getting to Peggy's Cove and was pleasantly surprised by Rhubard. The people were nice, food was very fresh and taste was excellent. Try the pizza. Also, don't miss the bakery in the basement!!

We came in as a group of 8, we understood they were busy and we needed to be patient. Two other tables that came in after us received their food before us, when asked what happened to our food, they said they had to make more special. I understand that kitchens get backed up and that specials do get ordered but the waitress after she took our order barely spoke to us again, bread was delivered after we had been there for half hour other tables got right away. When our soup finally arrived it was delicious until we discovered a hair in the soup. We brought to the waitresses attention she said the soup would not be charged to us. When we asked for our bill it never came went up to the cash and the waitress forgot that it was us that had the hair in the soup. The food was excellent minus the hair but the service sucked, will not be back or recommend.

We were so disappointed to receive this review. Your group seemed to be really enjoying your time together, travelling the province by motorcycle, and we are so sorry we did not add a great memory to your vacation. We apologize for your experience.

Rhubarb makes a chowder that sets the standard high for others! Presentation was beautiful, and taste, terrific. Chowder is not too "creamy" -- just right. Wait staff were as pleasant and personable as could be, and unfailingly helpful from the moment we walked in. Even though we did not have a reservation, they were able to offer us a place in the bar, on a very busy night, where we had the chance that we would not otherwise have had to converse with other customers, and the staff, as well. We felt fortunate to be there -- and commend this experience to others! "Five stars" in our book!
