The Highest Quality from Governor's Pub
We were spending some time in Cape Breton recently and were given outstanding recommendations to visit Governor's Pub. With the name "pub" we were expecting some good wings, maybe some fries. What we weren't expecting was one of the best meals we've ever had! Greg ordered the maple salmon, which is his go-to. He loves trying salmon at different restaurants. There is so many different flavours you can enjoy with salmon. He was able to get a side salad for his side, and it was large in portion size (not pictured). The maple salmon had an almost candied-like taste, and it was HUGE! The portion sizes were amazing but the quality was just as good.. which is surprising. The price, portion and experience was amazing with this one! I ordered the beef tenderloin with mashed potatoes and onions. I can be very picky with my steaks - especially if it isn't cooked properly.. but this steak was perfection. About an inch and a half thick, juicy and full of flavour. There was some sort of yellow and herbed sauce on it, and I almost asked for a side of it because I was so intrigued by the flavour. I swear each bite was better than the last - I would drive to CB from Halifax just for this steak. Also, it was only 32$ for a perfectly cut, seared, flavourful dish. I’m in love. We also had wings to start and chocolate explosion cheesecake. I would HIGHLY recommend the chocolate explosion cheesecake. White chocolate bites, I think there was brownie bites in there.. caramel drizzle.. whipped cream.. YUM. A huge shout out to our server Abbie who was a champ, one of the hardest workers and just an amazing person to speak with. Her honest quick reviews of the dishes sold us! She actually spent time with each person and when they asked about the menu - she knew it inside and out. I had asked her what the gentleman behind us had (the cheesecake) and she was all for it, excited that we had ordered it because it was also her favourite item on the menu. She was not wrong! She definitely made our experience that much better (and we didn't think it could be any better!) If you’re in CB, I’d highly recommend this amazing resto. It was the best meal on our trip with the best service! We can't wait to come back in the summer and enjoy the patio.
