A very nice clean place to eat, food was good and the waitress was friendly. Atmosphere inside or on deck was nice.

Our group of 8 had the fish & chips, lobster club, grilled salmon, grilled fish, seafood platter, hamburger and lasagna (1 regular and 1 from the kids' menu). I had the lobster club which was decent but of course, I'm going to say that it could've used more lobster in it. I also sampled the lasagne (okay) and the fish... More

We stopped at The Finer Diner while on a tour of Peggy's Cove. It was a beautiful day, so we sat on the front porch with a view of a lake across the road. I ordered the fish and chips, which was haddock served with rice and coleslaw. The batter was light and tasty and not greasy like some of... More

While on a private van tour, we voted to stop at a local diner near Peggy's Cover for lunch. Delightful staff and filled with locals. Our group tried the lobster club - delicious, a cheese steak sandwich- yummy, a regular lobster roll - equally delicious and I had the fried haddock and chips - fabulous. The seafood is wonderful -... More

We had been warned that the places to eat in and around Peggy's cove were very touristy and were best to avoid it if you can. A local friend said rather than drive back to Halifax that the Finer Diner was a great little spot for a good meal and they were right. They had some classic diner food that... More

Great service and lovely food, highly recommended. Restaurant is in lovely location and is obviously popular in the neighbourhood which is always a good indicator.

Saw a sign advertising the diner a few miles before we stopped for lunch. Outside the diner was a large sign " LOBSTER CLUB SANDWICH SPECIAL". My wife just loves lobster. So we stopped. Ordered the "SPECIAL" for her. I had a cup of sea food soup. The lobster SPECIAL wasn't the SPECIAL , just a HOT-DOG roll with some... More

Had driven by this place many times, and with the encouragement of a voucher actually made a visit to it. We were seated quickly but after ordering, the wait for food to arrive was long - sure the chowder could have been brought out more quickly. Chowder was good, although I would have preferred it a little creamier. Battered fish... More

We arrived at 6:30, restaurant closes at 7:30 in the winter, so there is some excuse for the near-emptiness of the restaurant. There was no lobster or hamburger in the kitchen, so our options were limited.Quinoa patties were an odd, totally soft texture, my sweet potato fries were limp. The diner is attractive and in a scenic setting, but some... More
