Lovely lunch with great service

This is the first time I have been in the hotel dining room since it has been redone. It is just lovely. Each table had a unique chair or church pew bench. The lighting and frame shelves behind the bar are stunning . Well done on these renovations. The lunch menu had plenty of choices. Home cooked... read more

We had our New Year's Eve Dinner at Lane's Privateer Inn. This was the best meal that we have experienced in a very long time, anywhere. All courses were prepared to perfection. A true dining experience. We stayed for an evening of dancing and thoroughly enjoyed that as well. This hotel has a great ambiance and offers so much. Our... More

I have traveled to the South Shore of Nova Scotia over 15 times. Lane's has been a place we have frequented for several years. One thing, the food is always very good, and even though Nova Scotia is know for their wonderful seafood, many restaurants have problems with just the basic fish and chips. Lane's does not have this problem.... More

The atmosphere was great and on the first night we sat by a window overlooking the water. The food and service were very good. In fact we returned the next night for another great experience. Their fish cakes are really good.

We had brunch at Lane's in the renovated pub. The food was excellent! I had the Eggs Benny - very nice hollandaise sauce and 'real' ham. The poached eggs were perfect. My husband had the fishcakes - he is still raving about them! The service was excellent - very friendly waiter who seems proud of where he works. The pub... More

The way in to the restaurant at Lane's Privateer Inn is typical for an Inn, but the experience you'll have here is far beyond what you might expect for a restaurant that's not just a restaurant. We can only imagine how nice the accommodations are. We were delightfully surprised with the beautiful, warm atmosphere of the restaurant. We immediately noticed... More

We enjoyed a most delicious dinner here! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The service was great! The setting overlooking the river was a bonus.

The food was good, not extraordinary, but good. We did not have reservations as it was the off season, but we got a table. The hostess took our drink orders and it took forever for someone to finally bring the drinks. Then the waiter took the order and in time brought the food. He eventually checked on us and we...

We were pretty tired when we arrived for lunch after driving all morning, so it was nice to relax in the pleasant atmosphere of the restaurant. I ordered the quinoa salad, which was very good. I had asked for a half size, but the waiter apparently didn't hear me and I wound up with a large and didn't complain, though... More
