Best seafood chowder ever as a starter and then it just keeps going and going. Great main dishes and the desserts are to die for. If lived closer would definitely eat there more.

A group of retirees recently met at Inn on the Lake for lunch. We had been there before and wanted to return, and we tend to be fussy about food. It was a partly cloudy day, but still a fovely day at the lake shore inn and restaurant. You can sit outside on the patio, inside at tables or in... More

I chose this restaurant based on reviews and it was our last meal in Nova Scotia as we moved toward the airport. It was a Sunday and the restaurant had just opened. I found the decor dark so we chose to sit outside although it wasn't really warm. I was disappointed with the menu, thought it would be more local... More

I would like to thank you for the incredible meals we had during our stay in August 2014. I would have to say, although hard to choose, the Seafood Chowder was my favorite this stay. I would have licked the bowl if I wasn't in public, my partner suggested it might not be a good idea at the time. :).... More

Location is great - at junction of main highway into Halifax. Still, the place seems off the beaten track. Food is excellent. The seafood chowder really tasted luscious and was full of fish. Others in our group raved about the quiche. We ate there twice because it is a favourite of our 92 year old relative who has been holding... More

Family of six enjoyed a beautiful brunch at the Inn Sunday to celebrate Fathers' Day. Food was great and our hostess was excellant. We had the booth which is very cosy. We do attend quite often for Sunday brunch so keep up the good work!

This Restaurant has a nice setting along the shores of the Shubenacadie canal system. It was a great setting for a Father's Day dinner. i enjoyed the bangers and mash potatoes. The cobb salad was wonderful and a must have for anyone. I would like to see a little lobster with the surf and turf to juice it up and... More

Arrived in Halifax, and with the recommendation of the Budget Car Rental attendant, stopped by the inn on the way to Wolfville. What a beautiful setting by the lake AND a scrumptious meal. From the crunchy 'fish & chips' entree to the delightful chicken & mushroom crepe, everyone's meal was perfectly prepared and tantalizing to the taste buds! Service was... More

It was a cold and drizzly Sunday. I had visions of a nice, warming little glass of dry sherry before my meal as I drove to Inn on the Lake for lunch with my book club. I caused confusion. Apparently sherry isn't served this way - it was offered with ice. When it came it was in a tumbler -... More

Family members (6) met at the Inn on the Lake in Fall River, Nova Scotia. We had excellent meals perfectly prepared and served hot. Everyone agreed that this was an evening we will remember for a long time. I recommend to everyone to consider the Inn on the Lake as a possibility for your evening in the Halifax area. Ernest
