“Lobster Eggs Benedict!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

This is a great little restaurant in Lunenburg right on the harbour! Great views whether indoors or out! Open for breakfast and lunch; my friends and I went for brunch! I tried the Lobster Eggs Benedict and couldn't have been happier. The lobster portion was huge and the homemade hollandaise sauce totally complimented it. Delish! I WILL be back!!

“Beautiful Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

This is a small, informal restaurant, tastefully decorated and with a lovely terrace overlooking the harbour.
I have been to this restaurant several times before with friends and we have always been very satisfied indeed. Unfortunately, there are only limited vegetarian dishes but all dishes are always beautifully presented. They staff are very friendly and try hard to accommodate special requests.
At lunch-times it can get quite busy and a little noisy but definitely a restaurant well worth visiting.

“Great location, delicious fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

We enjoyed sitting on the balcony overlooking the docks and the tall ship. The meal was delicious. My fiance enjoyed her vegetarian meal and my mixed cold fish platter were both delicious. The desserts appears to be fresh made on the premises.

“A pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

It was a far drive off the highway into Lunenburg but well worth the extra time. We were on our way to Halifax and it was overcast, we decided to check out Lunenburg for lunch. What a delightful town and the find the Savvy Sailor for lunch made extra drive worth it. The young lady who served us was from our city and was thrilled to talk about home! Make it one of your stops, you won't be disappointed!!!!
