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

This was one of the few restaurants open in the off season. The food was delicious, and the atmosphere exactly what you would want on a cold December evening!

I really want to like this place. It's got a great pedigree, terrific location, efficient wait staff and a kitchen that, to its credit, stretches beyond the normal fare offered in too many restaurants in town. No wonder it's commonly packed. But, too often, I've left mildly disappointed and mildly hungry. On this visit, I was delighted to see pho... More

just an all- round great experience. We were there for a quick lunch. Food and service was fantastic. Warm atmosphere, bright sun overlooking the water.

Wonderful comfort food with welcoming service and a great view of the Lunenburg waterfront. I was in Lunenburg for 3 nights and ate at the Salt Shaker Deli twice.

We enjoyed the atmosphere on the deck; the service was great. My partner loved his club sandwich. I found the garlic was over-powering my lobster pasta a bit but pasta was otherwise cooked perfectly. Would have liked to have gone back and had the pizza as I heard it was very good.

My daughter and I had lunch at this quaint little place on Nov 21,2014. Service was excellent. I had the Roasted Cauliflower Soup with half a Ruben and was not disappointed, it was delicious. My daughter enjoyed her Chicken Ceasar and raved about the chunks of flavorful chicken. What a pleasant visit on a very cold day, next time we... More

This is the second time this year I've run into a Clare that was doing a fantastic job in a restaurant. Last April I met a Clare working in Boston when I went to see the Marathon and last week I met another equally knowledgeable and enthusiastic Clare. There was four of us for lunch including a two and a... More

I ordered the Lobster Mac& Cheese that was way overcooked and was shy on the lobster. I also had the seafood chowder that was pretty good. I think that the food was overpriced for what they served. Our server was very good. It is fairly small but they have a patio that can be used when the weather allows.
