This restaurant was very tasty. They have fresh seafood and is a great place to go for a classic "east coast" lunch in Lunenburg. Very good!

We had a great meal here on our first night in Lunenburg, having spotted the place whilst having a wander around the town centre. It was a good choice as the drinks selection was fantastic and the food we ate was really good. The mussels to start were excellent - particularly the rosé garlic ones - and the pizzas were... More

I love the Salt Shaker, however, the lobster mac & cheese has lost it's fabulousness. Two years ago the lobster mac & cheese was terrific - about 3 great cheeses in it including I am sure a gruyere.

We didn't get to have a full meal here so I can only comment on the atmosphere, cold beer and mussels- which were great! I do prefer my mussels cooked in beer so would have been nice to have that as an option but they were still good! Great view of the wharf and staff was friendly and helpful. Can't... More

Wife and I needed to eat something at 4:30 and decided to give Salt Shaker a try. I ordered the mussels and pint special. Mussels were superb and pint of Propeller was also very good. Wife had the personal pizza which was delicious. Wait staff very pleasant. While we were not here for a full dinner based on our experience... More
