“Great food, great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We visit Lunenburg every year and always like to try something new. This year we tried the Salt Shaker Deli and they did not disappoint. Nice clean funky atmosphere and good variety of yummy food. Will return for sure!

“Enjoyed our two Lunches here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Went here twice for lunch, once with 8 people in the later afternoon, and another with 4 people right at prime lunch time. All the meals were of high quality and quite tasty with no complaints from our diverse group of people. The service while very friendly was quite slow, which is probably more of a kitchen issue then service staff. We had to wait quite a while for a table when we went at prime lunch time, with inclement weather shutting down the outside tables, but overall we enjoyed our two meals here.

“Good food very busy so be prepared to wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

House salad and shrimp cocktail starters really good. Salmon risotto and scallop linguini really tasty and well worth the wait. Staff all very friendly and cheerful.

“Not Disappointed For One Second!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Our dinner at the Salt Shaker Deli on Montague Street in the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Lunenberg was fresh-made gazpaucho--delicious--and lobster rolls. The lobster also tasted fresh and was in bite-size chunks, not shredded and mixed with a filler or over-mayonnaised. We ate on the deck overlooking the harbor on a warm summer evening, Service was fast and friendly. Dessert was across the street at the homemade ice cream shop, recommended by our server. We were in Lunenburg two days and also ate at the Magnolia Grill and the Fish Factory; those were good, but the Salt Shaker was without doubt the best.

“Nice deck and views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

We were lucky enough to get a table outside on the deck for lunch. Partner had the seafood chowder and I had the Thai wrap which was delicious and came with a peanut satay. Also ordered ice tea, which came an you could prepare the sweetness yourself. This was a nice touch. Staff friendly but busy. Prices a big expensive but it is lunnenberg and a big tourist sight!
