Woodroad is a 25-seat restaurant offering fine dining experiences along the Shore Road in Margaree Harbour. Located along the stunning coast of western Cape Breton Island, Woodroad’s dining room is in the upper floor of a recently constructed timber frame home overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The house is perched on a bluff approximately 100 feet from the ocean, providing breath-taking views of the the gulf, Margaree Island, and a remarkable stretch of coastline. Their unique and high-end menu changes frequently and takes inspiration from the land and the sea.
It's no secret that Cape Bretoners have an accent. The accent can sometimes take on a Gaelic sound and sometimes can sound akin to a Newfoundland accent. Either way, our accent is a part of our identity and no doubt a part of our charm.
