Very friendly and a comfortable atmosphere with amazing viewpoints out into one of the deepest harours in North America. A great place to spend a couple of hours having a beer (choose one from local brew house) Friday nights looks like it would be a fun time at this local / tourist hangout. Maybe next time when I am out... More

The Sea Dog has the best view of all the restaurants in Shelburne. With a harbourside patio, the view is second-to-none. Overall the food tends to be average, but there are some recent lobster-oriented additions to the menu which are excellent. Hubby had the beef-and-barley soup, I had the lobster quiche and Caesar salad, and we quite enjoyed them along... More

We stopped at the Sea Dog for lunch mid September. They advertised a local micro beer which sounded delicious, but were out of stock when I tried to order. My wife and I ordered the seafood chowder. Big mistake. It was seafood mush and mostly potatoes. Fairly tasty but cooked way too long till it became mushy.

I just returned from my annual (20 years and running) trip to the sunny South Shore of beautiful Nova Scotia. And, as always made sure I ate at The Seadog Saloon in Shelburne a number of times. Right from the very first time I was there about 6 years ago when the owner, Allan Reid personally greeted me and welcomed... More

We hit the Sea Dog Saloon for dinner on a Friday night early in September 2014. Our food was very good, the portions were generous and our server was friendly and informative. It was clear that the waitstaff at the Seadog enjoy their work and their customers. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay later.

We were visiting the Dory museum down the road & got hungry. Very glad we stopped in the Sea Dog. We has some excellent haddock & a beautiful view of the bay. Staff was very friendly also.

Very casual, don't order anything complicated. Food seemed fresh but ordinary taste. The patio is on a great location with a view of water and the local pier.

We were skeptical about going to the Sea Dog SALOON because of its name. We went on a Saturday night in August. It felt like a restaurant not a saloon. All the people, who were there, were diners. We had stopped by earlier in the day to check it out and had only seen diners then too. We were satisfied... More

If you're looking for a casual dinner, on a deck overlooking the water, with sailboats and a sunset, the Sea Dog is the place to be. The seafood is fresh, with a wide range of choices and the welcome option of fish being beer-battered or breaded. They also provide a number of signature dishes and authentic Nova Scotian fare I...
