The Knot has been in business 30+ years and still offers good solid food at a great value. A good selection of local beers compliments the menu featuring local products. Well designed and decorated with a nautical theme. The food portions are large so sharing...More

Stopped by for supper on a trip through Lunenburg. Love the big giant wooden door in the front. Great pub feel with good service. Food was great especially the Knot burger with homemade mustard! Will definitely be back.

The service was great. The drinks were great. The food was average however, scallops were very good but the fish and the fries were average, nothing special. Would go back though and would recommend as it is the only pun in the area!

We stopped in on a cold, foggy day in mid-April to have a bite of lunch before returning to Halifax on our Day-trip. This was one of the best seafood soups that we have ever eaten! Absolutely loaded with chunks of fish, scallops, crab, clams...More
