“It's A Subway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

The Lunenburg Subway is as good as any other Subway I have tried in North America. Fine dinning it's not. Just good fast food.

“Great people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Amazing staff, quick service all with smiling faces. Fresh sandwiches, cold drinks and amazing view from out door deck in back of restaurant overlooking harbor.

“Regular workers very nice, but owner/manager not so much”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Isn't this always the story? I love the workers at this Subway, but today I was in and the manager/owner was there (not sure which) and was extremely impolite to my friend and I. Barely made eye contact with us and said everything in a grouchy manner.

“Right in the Heart of It”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

The Lunenburg Subway is run by an enthusiastic husband and wife team who love to please their customers. The food is up to the Subway standard of quality and freshness and the staff friendly and quick. The location is perfect for a break from sight-seeing as it is located right in the geographic middle of town, a block from the wharf (with a deck overlooking same) and within 2 minutes of the major visitor locations such as the Fisheries Museum and the Knaut-Rhuland House. Souvenir shops flank its two sides and three banks are within 2 blocks. If you are staying at one of the many inns within 2-3 minutes walk, you can come down for your breakfast coffee and paper, or take a quick break for lunch or supper while enjoying this UNESCO Heritage Town.
Am I biased? Well, we moved here 4 years ago and love this place!

“Subway is great - what happened to this one in Lunenburg?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2010

My wife and I have enjoyed quick fresh & healthy meals at subway for years. Passing through Lunenburg, we decided to get a bite to eat at the Subway. It was about 8:35am on Friday Morning (23 July 2010).
We approached the Subway and noticed two people standing outside smoking. At the time I wondered how Subway could allow them to smoke directly outside their premises. (Right at the door). The puzzle became clearer when we walked in the subway and found no-one inside. Finally the two smokers strolled in - they were the employees - clearly annoyed that we had disrupted their smoke break. One put their smoke out and the other went to the corner of the store - covering up their smoke - and taking a puff when they thought we were not looking. We asked for bottled water and wanted to start the order. We were told that if we wanted water we would need to go to another restaruant and then come back. We were hungry and thirsty and thought we would get a soda instead. Went to the fridge and found all the sodas to be lukewarm. We were processing this when the lady behind the counter asked if we were ordering or not and started making her way to the door (presumably to continue the smokebreak). We went to the counter and looked at all the parts of the sub - wow - clearly from the night before, soft wet lettuce, squishy tomato and what looked like dried chicken. We left, but the two employess pushed ahead of us to get out first and then continued their smoke break.

I suppose the poor owner is wondering why they are not doing good business.
