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...

2013, after a day of walking the family sat down for a late afternoon bite. It was during Pirate week and some local Pirates were an entertaining distraction at times. The place was busy and staff moving about giving good slices of time to all (most specifically, us) so, no complaints on that. From what I recall the meals ordered... More

Though it always has potential to be good or bad per local reviews, on this occasion and most that I have experienced, the food was reliably good Nova Scotia pub food. On this particular visit, the service was too notch. The server definitely made the effort to ensure the kids were attended to specifically. And you can't beat the location.

For me, the mark of a truly great battered fish meal is taking that first bite and realizing that you will not be needing the tartar sauce, as it would only distract you from the light batter and moist fish on your plate. This was my experience at The Sea Dog Saloon today, and it will be a highlight of... More
