Slow service but reasonable priced diner type restaurant. Expect to wait at least half an hour for a lobster meal. I was told that the lobster was fresh and it took that long to cook. Don't have the lobster if you don't like the idea of it being killed specially for you. (I felt bad about it.)

I've been touring the Halifax area for almost 2 weeks now and Lunenburg (the town where the blue nose II is located) is the most beautiful place I've visited. It features bright colourful houses, a variety of restaurants and lots of sail boats. It was absolutely beautiful, we did not want to leave. The bluenose itself is very cool to... More

Enjoyed seeing the replica of the famous tall masted Bluenose as it departed from Lunenberg dock. Its sails every 3 hours so you can see it under power or sail if you time it right. You need to book months in advance if you want to take the cruise, but check at the dock as they sometimes have cancelations or... More

We were lucky enough to be in Lunenburg for the first sailing of the season and on a very windy day. This is an experience not to be missed. Watching the professionalism of the crew as they put up and take down the sails is awe inspiring. When not taking care of their duties the crew mingle with the passengers... More

Now, I'm not a sailor. I don't live near a harbour (actually I do, but we don't have anything like this in the Hammer), and I don't know the original Bluenose. But as a tourist, visiting Halifax for the first time (she was docked there) I have to say sailing on the Bluenose II was a highlight of my trip.... More

The Bluenose 2 is docking at various ports in Nova Scotia. The two hour sail up the Halifax harbor had spectacular scenery. It was fascinating to watch the crew of approximately 20 work to raise sails, come about, and fold the sails as we came in. At $52 per person, a real bargain for a truely memorable experince

Basically, it's an old boat that is on my $0.10 cent dime (Cdn money). Either this one is or the original boat. Again, I've heard about it my whole life so I had to see it. I found it more interesting that they were loading fish right off the boat into a tractor trailer down the wharf.

My personal view of the ship is that the problems were not fixed and still trying to make believe the matters of steering are all cleared NOT SO not even touched. My personal feelings watch what you sail on.

This place had a "special" the late afternoon when we were there: a complete large lobster with all the sides for only $19.99 Canadian. The lobster chowder was great!

We got shipped here by the concierge of a nearby hotel. Its a fairly standard mid-city diner. Seems to attract locals. Its a dated interior and the food was mediocre. I wouldn't wander back but... it the old diners appeal... hey, this is your place.
