Delicious food year round! It can get crowded in the summer however there is a patio available in the summer with view of the ocean.

Reasonable prices for where you are, great scenery, nice beers, quality food - what more do you need? Had the seafood pizza, so very fresh.

Went to Luneburg for the first time and this was recommended to us. Great atmosphere, great food and service was way above par. Felt like we were away for a week so totally relaxing!

Had to wait a long time for a table, I wanted to be in cool spot, it was hot out. Waited for deck where there was an incredible breeze. I would have been warm inside. I forget what I had, but it was good. My husband's sea food chowder was unreal. I should have ordered a bowl, but I don't... More

We eat here often; on average maybe once a week. The service is excellent and the ambiance is great. Being locals, it's great to have a restaurant that is open nearly year round. Of all the tourist area, less expensive restaurants we find the Salt Shaker to have the best food. The menu is not extensive, and deli sandwiches etc... More

And we agree. Great chowder, excellent mussels in a choice of sauces. Tasty toco's, I had the pork, though the battered fish looked every bit the equal. Very good local inspired Lunenburg choice for a tasty lunch.

As this place was rated high in the Tripadvisor, my husband's mom, sister, friend and us went this restaurant for lunch. We waited for half an hour for the table. We got a table and the waitress was busy running around so not really giving us a smile. A few people ordered fish tacos and His mom and I ordered... More

This restaurant specializes in seafood, not surprisingly, and always does it right. I'm locally-born and raised and now living away so I like my seafood done correctly and the SSD delivers. We visited as a group of five and all were pleased with their meals. My scallop linguini were done to perfection. Also had salt-cod tidbits (salt cod, salt pork... More

GOOD food but needs work to be excellent. The liver pate was way too salty, the tomato Parmesan did not taste " cheesey", the hot soups were served at the same time as the hot sandwiches so both became cold while eating, the lobster sandwich was ok, but nothing outstanding. I'll look further next time.
