Our host in Lunenburg recommended a stop at the Rope Loft on our way back to Halifax for lunch. Boy are we glad we didn't miss this restaurant. OK, so it was a crystal clear day with a perfect temperature. The lunch crowd was light. Our table on the deck had an unobstructed view of the harbor. What a way to prep us for the food. We have had countless lobster rolls from Connecticut to Canada. These were the best ever. My wife commented that the accompanying french fries might be the best we have ever had also. Top that off with a good beer and lunch was absolutely delightful - all served by a very pleasant waitress. We've been home a week now and not a day goes by without one of us commenting about that lunch and we wish we were back there on the deck.

Visited Rope Loft (Chester, Nova Scotia) for lunch the end of August, very disappointed! Nice location on the water, the location was the best part of our visit. Our waitress was too busy to offer good service. Their fish and chips were terrible, had to saw through the fish. We waited far too long for our service and food.

The Rope Loft is always a great place for lunch or dinner so we thought we would try brunch there this weekend. The special was steak and eggs which were good, not great, but good. They were really busy but the service was fast and efficient and the staff are super friendly.

The location of this pub right on the water is spectacular with an incredible view. The food was nothing special, but nonetheless very good for a pub and, in fact, exceeded our expectations. Both the seafood chowder and shellfish linguini were loaded with fresh seafood, which was somewhat unexpected. Nice friendly staff. We would eat there again.

The meals were quite good, generous in proportion and the service on the outside patio was excellent. Our waiter was more than attentive but not intrusive. Thank you for the nice evening meal and drinks.
