Living here in Lunenburg, I am able to go to the Salt Shaker often. I have tried most items on the menu and have loved them all. I especially like the pizzas --lots of variety and always done just as I like them. I hear the chowder is very special...must try it one day...hmm. cannot figure out why I haven't... More

Delicious food, decent wine and excellent desserts, in a friendly, fairly casual setting. Good for families, or for a date. Also, one of the few places in Lunenburg that stays open all year!

The deli itself isn't exceptional but it does enjoy nice views over the water if you get a table at the back of the restaurant. Lunenburg is such a pretty town and well worth a visit. It seem to be a popular choice with many people.

Good delcious foof. Great service even though busy because valentines day, they did their best. I was a little surprised on lunch menu, as we went in for a quick lunch to tie us over until suuper, cost was a bit high. No lunch menu. But food tasted great!!!!! A must.

You have to try the Tomato Parmesan Soup and Garlic Cheese Bread....you cannot have one without the other. You need the bread to get all of the soup out of the bowl....it was that good! I wish it had of been bottomless!

Perfect spot for an afternoon snack stop. Wonderful food at a great price! We enjoyed the tacos and ham and brie sandwich with a pint.

Great food - my favourite is the pork tacos and you can't go wrong with any of the pizzas. Professional & friendly service. Good location - just half a block from the waterfront - outdoor patio over looking the harbour (for warm weather months). What's not to love?

We were there in the off season so were quite happy to find this open. As for the food," ok " is about how i would describe it. Nice chowder, okay lobster roll but nothing special. Having said that we will go back and give it another try.

My wife and I have been to Lunenburg twice in the past few months, and Salt Shaker Deli ranks at or near the top of the list of restaurants we've visited. We arrived around 5:30 to take advantage of their Happy Hour Specials (The Salt Cod Timbits were amazing), and were glad we'd come early, because by 6:30 people were... More
