Great little diner - good menu and good value for your money. Nice baked treats. Fish and chips were very good and fresh.

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

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

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
