Where to eat when in Summerville Beach, NS

Dr Al Doucet dives into seafood that’s just as impressive as the restaurant’s view

A culinary and visual delight awaits you at the Quarterdeck Beachside Villas & Grill on spectacular Summerville Beach, a 10-minute drive past the historic town of Liverpool, Nova Scotia, also known as the “Port of the Privateers.”

The restaurant has evolved from a 1950’s hamburger joint to an eclectic building cantilevered on posts overlooking a 1.5-kilometre long sandy beach. The atmosphere is unique particularly as the sun goes down and the waves crash under the enclosed and heated outdoor deck. The view itself is worth the drive, but the food makes the Quarterdeck “a little bit of heaven.”

Voted Taste of Nova Scotia “Restaurant of the Year” in 2005, the Quarterdeck consistently delivers extraordinary cuisine. As is to be expected on the south shore, fresh fish is a mainstay. Their planked salmon is uniquely seasoned and grilled on an outdoor wood fire pit. Or choose thick steaks, salads brimming with scallops, shrimps and lobster or the grilled fresh fish of the day. Their desserts are to die for: I recommend either the Triple Chocolate Fix or the frozen tartufo. Complement the meal with a bottle of wine from their extensive wine cellar or one of their many mixed drinks. A specialty coffee will cement the experience as the sunsets over the water.
