Great view. Really good lobster roll. Our first meal in Nova Scotia. Friendly staff. We ate on the porch and enjoyed every bite. Very good local beer and close to Peggys Cove.

Too expensive for it's value. We ordered the seafood chowder that was watery and with shredded pieces and not chunks. The seafood platter was all fried and was too oily. The lobster club sandwich was good but expensive. The service is good.

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast, set against the beauty of Hacketts Cove, and watched the morning fog give way to the sun. I had the Smoked Salmon Benedict and my wife enjoyed the toasted western; both were outstanding. If you enjoy a quiet breakfast I recommend arriving at 9:00 am when they open as people start rolling in around 10:00... More

My wife, daughter and I discovered this rustic place while searching for a restaurant for a change just a bit out of Halifax and with great seafood. We were very pleased with the seafood, drink selections, great service as well as the waterfront location featuring a nice evening sunset. If you are in the Halifax area, its well worth the... More

This place was recommended by another restaurant ( Rhubarb) after we couldn't get a piece of pie due to being sold out. I thought it was pretty decent of Rhubarb to recommend another restaurant and we weren't disappointed. The crust on our Strawberry Rhubarb Custard pie was deliciously crisp and cooked to perfection. The filling was not too sweet and... More

What a find! After a few hours of head turning beauty along the Lighthouse Trail ( Peggy's Cove to Lunenburg) we found The Finer Diner in Hackett's Cove. What a wonderful place. Bright, good view of a small harbor across the road, friendly people, great food and service. I had the seafood chowder, my wife had the turkey vegetable soup... More
