Cape Breton Island Restaurants


Red Shoe

Red Shoe Review

More than a mere pub, this Cape Breton institution has evolved into an attraction in its own right, in part because it is owned by four of the Rankins, Canada's most celebrated singing siblings. There's music here every night, and sometimes during the day, and the "Shoe" is a magnet for the finest fiddlers and step dancers. As for the food, expect the usual pub favorites: fish-and-chips, pulled-pork sandwiches, grilled salmon, stuffed chicken, and mussels steamed in ale, garlic, and bacon.
