A True Seafood Shack On Cape Sable Island

Westhead Takeout is the quintessential seafood shack complete with picnic tables and views of fishing vessels and the ocean.

The menu covers all things fried and we were there to experience the various seafood offerings.

Once you order you can take a few minutes to wander around the wharf where you can check out whatever Canadian Coast Guard vessel is in port and watch seaweed harvesters unload their haul. Or you can sit on the porch of the shack enjoying the smells coming from the kitchen.

When our food was ready we dove right in. The fried clams were the best I’ve had this summer and possibly ever. They were whole clams and very fresh. We loved the scallops, haddock sandwich, shrimp, and onion rings. It was a great meal!
