“Not really a Deli; not bad, just not a deli”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Salt Shaker Deli serves good food, but if you're headed there for a corned beef on rye...it ain't that kinda deli! They are all over the map with the kind of food they serve. I was there for lunch; they had everything from antipasto to thai salads to pizza...but hold the corned beef! But the food was decent, if a little high priced for lunch, and the service was good, so...it's worth a shot.

“They Won Me Over”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

I'm not a deli kind of guy, but my wife wanted to eat here and I like for her to get to choose as she's way more into this kind of thing. My first bite won me over. My sandwich was EXCEPTIONAL. The atmosphere had just the right balance of quaint and efficient/competent. Delicious. Not the best view/balcony in town, but who cares? You'll be totally focused on enjoying your food. They really know what they're doing here. I'm sure the ONE other guy in the entire restaurant would agree. But, no need to turn in your "man card" at the door ... the food is adored by all. Service was good and they were helpful to get me directions on the best route out of town, too.

“Four winners!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

We had a lovely late lunch on the back porch with each of us ordering different meals. All hit the mark for flavor. The service was friendly but a tad forgetful. We will be back though.

“Nice lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

The Salt Shaker Deli is a nice place to have lunch in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. Lunenburg is one of only two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in North America. (The other is Old Quebec City.) We had a good fish chower, fish and chips, pizza, and ice cream. The Salt Shaker has large windows that look out on the magnificent harbor.

“Easy Choice.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

The restaurant has an extensive menu which would meet everybody's needs but of course the winner is the Smoked Seafood Chowder which is delicious. Lots of seafood and possibly a secret ingredient! What a treat to sit out on the deck overlooking the harbour, eating wonderful food.
