Tasty food nice view

We ate here for lunch and sat outside. The restaurant is the old jail and has a couple little reminders of the jail. The lunch specials of one piece or two piece fish either fried or baked. The single piece is a great way to taste the local fish without over eating my wife it baked and said it... read more

Located across the street from the water, this restaurant has great views! Their pizza has a unique sweet sauce and crust. Their bread is homemade and made the sandwiched we ordered delicious.

My sister-in-law and her family showed us a tremendous number of sites in Halifax when we were down for a niece's wedding. We ate lunch here one day. Family treated us, but I still would willingly have paid the really reasonable price. We sat on the deck looking over the harbour. It was a fantastic experience!

Great mussels. Pizza was delicious. Homemade bread was fabulous. View of the harbour was the best feature. I had the seafood chowder. It was ok but not great.

The only good thing going for this place is its location by the harbour. While the server was pleasant, the food was just shy of unappetizing: the lobster roll was swimming in mayonnaise, the garden salad was a sad mix of iceberg & flavorless tomatoes; the salad dressing came in packets, and the lemonade is powdered. Even the kids pizza... More

A nice place to have a non seafood meal. Beautiful harbour view. It was prom week in Lunenburg so we spent our time looking out of the big windows to people watch. Excellent service and good food. We had the deep fried scallops which were delicious and shared a pizza which was also good (sauce is sweeter than I was... More

Big Reds is located in the old Lunenburg Jail. The view over the waterfront is very good and adds the dining experience. The seafood is very godd as is the pizza. Well done to Big and Little Red.

Average food, but spectacular view. Simple menu, the pub around the corner pub type of thing. The place has enter acne from two streets, if you used the one from the Bluenose drive, then you will need to use the stairs to go to the main level to be served.

I enjoyed lunch here, overlooking the harbour. Very handily located for the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic. The service was prompt and friendly and the food was great value. I loved that my teapot was refilled free of charge without having to ask.
