We had lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed it! The food was excellent, served quickly and piping hot. I had the Haddock Chowder - chalk full of haddock chunks in a milk based broth. Very nicely flavored. My sister had the cold fish plate. Members of...More

The staff was exceptional. Very nice and prompt service. The view was spectacular from the deck overlooking the harbour. There is no doubt, I have never had a hollandaise sauce so smooth and velvety. I am ruined for all other bennies from this point forward!

Waitstaff were attentive and food was good at Savvy Sailor in Lunenberg. They were most accommodating and generous when I asked for some simplifying/tailoring/editing of a menu item.

The Bennies are so well prepared and the hollandies sauce the best. Coffee is great too and of course the service is super friendly and courteous. The view from the balcony is beautiful.

the special soup was crab bisque---a gelatinous bowl of gloop completely devoid of flavour, even crab. followed by steamed 'fresh' mussels which were not fresh. the consistency was dry and tasteless and must have been a week old. very disappointing.
