“Loved the freshness & quality - both the seafood/fish and desserts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2009

The restaurnat is casual in appearance but the focus is the food - works for me! The seafood & fish here is very fresh and well prepared. We tried the scallops, fish cakes & haddock - all vey good. The scallops were amazing (so fresh) and were a good price given the serving size. The sides were very well done - rhubarb chutney, salads and rice pilaf. We were very full but tried 2 desserts - key lime pie and hummingbird cake - amazing!
Our waitress was a character (Hi Michelle!) and was disappointed we didn't try the lobster linguini but the cream sauce just didn't appeal to us.
Luckily rh optiosn were fabulous.
It was one of our best dinners in Nova Scotia.

“Excellent food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2009

We had the fresh caught scallops and mussels in garlic and white wine. It was served with a fresh garden salad that tasted like the vegies were just picked. Personal service and cute atmosphere. Obviously the favorite of locals and visitors. We will be back.

“fresh fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2009

We had to best dinner here! Grilled halibut was amazing, and just an hour off the fishing boat. Fish cakes with rhubarb chutney = YUM. Creole peanut soup was wonderful. When in Lunenburg, you have to eat here.
