“Very Unique Experience”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

A must go! A wonderful burned marsh mellow of a local guy running his "place"!! Rough on the outside, bit soft on the inside! Ernie himself is an experience, a great one. Lobster was cooked to perfection. Beautiful views. Perfect evening. One of the highlights of my trip. Remember its a BYO place!!

“Lobster Aficionados”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Best quality lobster around. Full shelled meat. Small restaurant on the beach with a BYOB option, or buy your lobster to take home & cook to your taste. The y also have bags of flash frozen lobster for sale.

“The absolute, ONLY way to eat lobster!!!”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

The rustic,and very clean lobster shack right on the beach was fantastic. You get to see the whole lobster pound operation, get to pick out your lobster, and have it cooked for you. How fresh is that! Served with corn on the cob or potato salad, and then, strawberry shortcake--fabulous.The sunset over the water was glorious. Brian and Ernie were everything from greeters, head waiters,bus boys, and tour guides! Great people.

“Best Lobster we've ever eaten”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

If it is a fancy dining experience that you are looking for, better go somewhere else. If you want an excellent lobster and a totally unique dining experience, call and make a reservation at Stanley Lobster. It was pouring rain the evening we were there, but it was still fun. It would really be a blast on a nice evening.

“Really really good experience”
Reviewed July 4, 2012 via mobile

This was our third dinner and third lobster dinner in NS. First one was in Halifax waterfront warehouse, second was in Luneburg the old fish factory, the third was stanley. It was the best among the three. True experience. Al little challenge to find the place despite the big sign on the road. However, when we saw the beach , wow, all the looking are well worth it. The lobster is the best I ever had!

Unique place to eat, bring your own wine. You will have the best lobster meal. Also, best price!
