We stopped here on the loop from Halifax to Peggy's Cove and had a very nice lobster club for lunch. The food was excellent. The service was prompt and friendly. All of the orders that came out of the kitchen while we waited looked very good. The prices were reasonable compare to the restaurant at the lighthouse. It was well... More

We stopped in on our way back from a trip to Peggy's Cove just before noon for lunch. Right after we were seated, a number of locals arrived (always a good sign) and the place filled-up pretty quickly. Nonetheless, our orders were taken, and the food arrived expeditiously. Between our party, we tried the salmon, the grilled chicken sandwich, the... More

We had seen the full parking lot earlier in the week and decided to give this restaurant a try. Don't be discouraged by the full lot, there seemed to be more tables available than parking spaces. We were very happy with our meals here. We had the fish cakes (which were fantastic) served with the house salad and the special... More

In an area were restaurants are few and far between, this restaurant was a pleasant discovery based on a recommendation from some local people.

Sitting on the patio with a nice view, being served by nice and friendly staff, having a beer and an outstanding Lobster Roll - how could life be better.

Looonnnnggg wait! The food was ok, but we suffered from neglect from the start to finish. A bunch of mistakes were made with how the wait was handled, but it was hard to have ill feelings with our sever because she was very apologetic and nice. But for the amount of time it took to get the one course we... More

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
