This restaurant provides a nice view of the harbour - the Bluenose II was in port when we were there. The food is good, but nothing out of the ordinary. The menu is varied and there is something for everyone. There is a wide variety of seafood (good fish and chips) on the menu as well as pizza, burgers and... More

My wife had soup and coconut cream pie. I had a sandwich, made with homemade bread. All were simple, but delicious. Our waitress was pleasant and helpful.

I eat here a lot. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it undercooked and old. I love their food but am taking a break from visiting since last time I was in there I ordered fish and chips...the fish was over done, my fries tasted kinda stale and my coleslaw was warm and smelled like compost (also confirmed by my date)

We arrived five minutes before the noon breakfast cut-off, and by the time we were seated the kitchen was already transitioning to lunch. But we really wanted some eggs. Our hostess said she'd handle the situation and, sure enough, we were able to order from the breakfast menu. There isn't much selection because the restaurant doesn't open till ten a.m.... More

Went here for lunch the other day. Not fantastic. I ordered the scallops and onion rings, and my uncle ordered the fish & chips.... scallops were unavailable without being breaded... so that was a turn off, and my uncles fish and chips were crunchy they were so over cooked. Service was decent, not a licensed venue, but I was expecting... More

So, I am not sure why I look at the menu when I go to Big Red's, If you are looking for something different try their Pizza Donair. It is always a great choice.

I just ate one of your pizzas, ordered from the Lunenburg location through takeout. I have to tell you that I am so disappointed by the pizza. For a 12"pizza with 2 toppings, mushroom and hot peppers (probably the two cheapest toppings no less) and extra cheese, a total of $21.10 is way too much. The quality of the ingredients... More

We always enjoy eating at Big Red's. This is casual dining, and while lots of people order pizza, we nearly always have fish, either fish and chips or baked fish with rice or baked potatoes.

We got pizza and salad to go. Everything was ready when we arrived to pick it up. And, the pizza was hot. However the tomato sauce on both pizzas was very sweet by US standards. In fact, we wondered if barbecue sauce had been mixed in with the tomato sauce. Maybe it's how pizza is supposed to taste in NS... More
