Service could not be better. We are bless to have the Salt Shaker open year... More

I have eaten here several time.and have enjoyed my meal. Small menu but lots to choose from..stay away from the miso soup as I don't think any meal should take 3 utensils to eat and it lacked being worth the effort. stick with the food they do best. sandwiches pizza and mussels

The salt shaker deli, is one of many hidden gens in Lunenburg. They have a very different and imaginative menu. We tried several items and loves the blends of tastes.

Our son gave us a gift certificate to the Salt Shaker Deli for our 25th anniversary. It was a real treat. The menu has something that will appeal to everyone and is reasonably priced. In the summer there is a lovely deck that overlooks Lunenburg harbour.

We did lunch here on a Sunday afternoon. The food was good, the prices were fair and they had a cute little patio that we enjoyed! Nothing too fancy but thats just what we were looking for.

Had a BLT on ciabatta bread, it was really tasty. The restaurant is not too small and has a great view. Highly recommend it.

The Salt Shaker was recommended by our B&B Hosts (Pelham House) and we are glad we went. The small kitchen is very efficient and has very creative offerings. The dining room and bar staff work so well together as a team. Every table was taken so we ate at the bar the first night. Same offerings as the tables. You... More

One of the most fresh seafood I ate. Very close to lunenberg harbor, good place to drop by before you begin walking the historic city. Especially love their seafood chowder!
