The food and service were both great! Very happy with the fresh scallops and the fresh-squeezed lemonade. Don't miss this place.

We both tried the Lobster roll with the clam chowder! Best clam chowder we both have ever tried! It was loaded with clams, potatoes, vegetables, with a delicious thin broth. I have never had chowder with a thin broth, I was hesitant. The broth was incredible! I like the thin broth much better than the thick, creamy broth. The Lobster... More

We had the mussels which were amazing. The lobster linguine was incredible. But what really stole the show was the dessert: the salted chocolate caramel tart. Do not leave without trying it!

The owners of the B&B we were staying at told us we had to go here, and boy were they right! The entire family ended up having exactly the same thing, an appetizer of mussels and the lobster linguine. They served the mussels with a side of butter, but they were so good you just didn't need it. The lobster... More

I had the fish cakes with rhubarb chutney and my husband had the calamari followed by a cup of clam chowder. We were both stuffed at the end of our meal! The fish cakes were half and half potato and fish and although they tasted more like potato than fish, that may be a good thing for many people who... More

Food was very fresh. Had the scallops special and they were amazing, some of the best I've eaten! Great view and patio, as most of the restaurants have in Lunenburg.

We were early in the season and it was very cool outside yet the inside was stifling warm and stuffy. We ate on the deck. The service was very good. As per TA advise, we tried the peanut soup which was very unique. I enjoyed trying something new but probably wouldn't order it again....think warm, melted peanut butter. On the... More

As a visitor from Florida, you would seem to think the rule may be that the further you go from the keys, the better the Key Lime Pie gets. Magnolia's key lime pie has been exceptional for years, and the rest of our lunch did not disappoint! The burger was incredible as well. Overall, highly recommended.

This quiet bistro is unassuming , but once you sit down and have the personal service and taste the delicious food - you're set! Wonderful, the best scallops according to my husband and they make every effort to make sure your meal is perfect. Not a touristy "bus stop", obviously a local favorite, and ours!

We saw the tripadvisor sign and we went into the grill. The wait staff was attentive, and easily explained the menu. The food was nicely presented. The scallops were very good, fresh, and prepared neatly, and presented very nicely.
