Had the Chicken Penne, which was the special of the day. Fantastic, with a light garlic, creamy sauce and REAL chicken. Garlic bread was included. Excellent lemon meringue pie for desert. prompt and pleasant service. Excellent burger as well. Limited menu.A few more choices would be welcome.

Five of us went to the Finer Diner for lunch on 25 Sep 2014 (2 males 56 and 60+; 3 females 56, 57 and 74 years old - four family members and one friend). No one had been there before and it was chosen based on its high internet reviews. The Finer Diner has a nice view of Hacketts Cove.... 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.

This restaurant has a nice location and a beautiful view if sitting outside. We had the lobster club and the lobster Caesar. Both were very, very good and full of lobster. Draft beer was cold and went perfectly with the meal. The seafood chowder was good, but we wish it had less potatoes and more seafood. What brings down the... More

The Finer Diner had advertisements going to and out of Peggy's Cove. Their beautiful view of the waterfront the fishing boats and lobster traps reeled me in. I ordered their special - a curry featuring one vegetable curry and one beef curry with pickled vegetables and rice. At first, I was a bit skeptical on ordering curry. I mean, I... More

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
