Nice older diner down the road from Peggy's Cove and Tantallon. Nice supper and friendly folks. Average food with smallish portions. Quiet & reasonable.

We were a group of six and we stopped here for lunch during our day tour of the area. We had the lobster rolls and mushrooms, and both were good. We had good service and enjoyed our lunch.

The fish fillets my husband had were worth bragging about to our fellow cruise passengers. I had a lobster roll and it was good. I... More

...when you walk through the doors of the Finer Diner it just plain old fashioned FEELS GOOD! It's not JUST the FINER FOOD the attentive service or even the ultra caring and community engaging owners, Sarah and Peter... although all of these points are certainly worth a great big hip hip hooray! It's the attention to detail, the never miss... More

The Finer Diner is located on a great inlet. A beautiful place to enjoy the landscape while eating dinner. Our waitress was very attentive and the food was good.

The food here was very good. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the view of the harbour nearby. The service was cheerful and prompt. we arrived at opening time (11:30 AM), and by the time we had finished our meal and were preparing to leave, there were people waiting for tables to be freed up.
