Although the service was good I would say the food was just okay. My husband had seafood chowder and he wasn't impressed. I ad the lobster stuffed mushrooms which had very little lobster and lots of cheese covering them so you wouldn't notice. The fish cakes had no flavour at all. Definitely not good value for the price.

The service was good, and the food was also very good. We enjoyed the lobster club sandwich & onion rings. Nice, clean & well maintained restaurant to visit if in... More

The restaurant is about 10 minutes drive from Peggy's Point Lighthouse, but not as crowded with tourists. I went there with my 6 year old daughter. The kids menu offers a nice choice of meals at a very reasonable price. I had the lobster roll with chowder... it was simply delicious. The service was excellent! We have a nice view... More

Fish and chips are good, lots of seating and fast service. They have many seafood choices, of course.

"Diner" is actually a small restaurant. Place was recommended by Peggy cove visitor center. Loved it. Homey, great service, great food. Nice harbor across street. Eat in or out. Would definitely go there again!

I had a wonderful meal--Seafood Club and Carrot Cake! Loved the carrot cake. Melt in your mouth delicious! Service was friendly and efficient. Lots to look at including the art and great scenery as it is right on the water.

We were so glad we went that little bit out of Peggy's Cove to the Finer Diner. Loved the decor and original art on the walls. I had the root vegetable soup and bean salad. The warm, fresh, homemade tea biscuit melted in mouth. Shared some too die for carrot cake. Perfect lunch at a perfect spot.

A really nice find on the road when we were hungry. Really decent pricing, nothing out of the ordinary in that regard. Our waitress was friendly. Fish and chips was great. Definitely worth the stop.

Thank equipmqn
