We went because You gotta eat here recommended them. Well, my in laws said they wanted to split a salad as an app and then when they went to order the catch of the day, were asked what salad they wanted. This restaurant offers no starch or veggies besides salad. The restaurant is small, the menu limited and the meal... More

Wonderful staff, great and innovative gourmet meals. We loved this restaurant and were so disappointed when on the 4th night it was closed. They do need a day off. No other place came close. We went down the street to a seafood restaurant and received an adequate fish meal. Will always remember the great food and hospitable staff.

This is a friendly homespun unpretentious restaurant. The kitchen is open to some tables and the friendly banter among the cooks and dishwasher was great atmosphere. The meal is posted on a big chalkboard. The service is a perfect blend of instantly attentive and relaxed. the food was wonderful. I had peanut creole soup, unexpected here, and it was superb....

We both had the Lobster Linguine and were not disappointed. The flavours were wonderful and the lobster was as fresh as could be. Service was great as always. Best place to eat in Lunenburg.

We enjoyed our dinner in this great little restaurant. The soup is so good, my husband actually had a second bowl for desert! I had the pan fried scallops which were also amazing. The waitress was so friendly and had great stories about past celebrities visiting. Would highly recommend this cute and cozy stop!

My husband and I first saw this restaurant on the TV show "You Gotta Eat Here". It did not disappoint. Fish cakes were to die for. Service was excellent. A very small but quaint restaurant. We will be sure to visit again.

Pan fried freak scallops with roasted beet salad to die for. It was crowded on a very quiet time for tourists(day after Labor Day). We sat at the counter so would make it before closing! Put it on your list of in area!

We waited for a table as they were full. This was the day after Labour Day and many restaurants were closed. They do take reservations and I would recommend it. It is a small restaurant with maybe 8 tables and booths inside and additional seating outside on a patio which was closed due to uncertain weather. We both had the... More

Got lucky on a late August afternoon…we got seated at this very high demand restaurant after a very short wait. An inviting and cozy venue with engaging and responsive wait staff. Our lunch was served in a timely manner and was absolutely delicious! Price was competitive. If you’re in Lunenburg, or even close, it’s worth the wait. I’d go out... More
