Scallops battered and deep fried. Yes,please

Local greasy spit to grab quick seafood and more. Staff if friendly and the food is what it is. I've eaten here several times and will so so again. Service is always quick and the quality is always consistent.

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.

We stopped in for lunch hoping for a healthy lunch. There is a lot of fried food and pizza on the menu. The waitress said the seafood chowder was homemade and indeed it was!! It was the best chowder we had on this trip. Full of seafood (we paid for extra lobster) and in an excellent broth, it was delicious.... More

The waitress forgot our drinks at the beginning, she never once visited our table asking if ever thing was ok. The fish and chips meal was below average. The fish was dry and over cooked with the batter bringing hard and too well done. The coleslaw was warm and soupy, the chicken burger meal was less than adequate as the... More

We basically just stopped for some pizza and it was very good. We were in the area for a few days and some of the locals we talked to recommended it. The menu looked simple and plain but I would suggest you try some of the other great places in town. It has a great view of the water which... More
