“Huge disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2010

Lunenburg is a great tourist destination in Nova Scotia, and this restaurant seems to take advantage of this as they are not concerned with having "customers for life" they seem to be intent on ripping off their customers and not giving a damn because they are probably tourists and won't be returning to the restaurant anyway. The food was passable but the service was extremely slow and the menu had errors that the Manager hoped no one noticed or questioned. However when they were questioned by the party I was with, we were met by a Manager who blamed his staff for the problems and was not willing to correct them - there were mistakes made and the customer was the one who was expected to pay for them. Rather go hungry than return to the Dockside Lobster & Seafood Restaurant

“Great View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2009

The food was good but the view is wonderful. Reservations are accepted but not required. Some nights they have entertainment.

“Good Food, Great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2009

We have eaten at this restaurant several times over the past four years, and always come back when we visit Lunenburg. The view of the harbour is spectacular and the food is tastes good and is good value for money. Definitely not frozen food. Excellent Fish & chips.

“Bad Food!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2009

It was very cheap, and a nice view, but boy was the food bad! Felt like I was in Uni again, making frozen burgers on plain white buns. Yuck.
