SW aBOUT uSThe Sou'Wester Gift & Restaurant Co. began in 1967 as a small five table tearoom at the side of a house at its present location. It has been expanded over the last five decades to a 180-seat restaurant offering traditional Maritime and seafood dishes, and a two-level gift shop with one of the Maritimes largest selections of giftware. Today, more than 50 years later, The Sou'Wester is still run by the family of its founder, Jack Campbell.

More History
On December 24th, 1966, Jack Campbell bought the Lighthouse View Tearoom, which was owned by Lizzie Morash and was situated in the same site it is today. When Jack bought it he actually lived in one half of the building. It was unfinished on the inside, heated by a Key Mac stove and had five card tables at one end of the house. In the spring of 1967, they cut the house portion off the building, and moved it away. The inside was then finished. The ceilings were hand carved with an adz by Reggie Schneider of Bridgewater and Rufus Covey of Hackett's Cove.

Gradually extensions were added to the restaurant, which at the time seated 56 people. In 1978-79 the present day kitchen was built, as well as the section of the building facing the cove. In the late 80's the giftshop was added, completing the present day structure which now seats 180 people and offers traditional meals and delicious seafood. The two level giftshop has one of the largest giftware selections in the Maritimes.

Specials & Events

Hours of Operations: temporarily closed

To our valued customers and community: 
We have made the decision to temporarily close the Sou’Wester Restaurant and Gift Store effective Wednesday March 18th until further notice. 
This is new, unprecedented territory for all of us as we are seeing numerous other businesses across many different industries close down in recent days. Therefore we also feel this is the right decision for our customers, team members and neighbours. 
The Whale’s Back Country Store will remain open to serve the community. 
We want to thank the Province of Nova Scotia, the Department of Health and all our front line heath care workers for their efforts in helping keep all of us safe.

We will all get through this together. 
Be safe...
Sou’Wester Gift & Restaurant Company Management Team
