Restaurant was understaffed but in fairness it was a very busy week in Lunenburg. Food was great - lobster thermador, fish masala, seafood crepes. Good wine list. Would recommend .

Overlooking the Lunenburg waterfront, the Rum Runner Restaurant & Lounge specializes in fresh Lunenburg seafood, purchased locally and prepared to order. Our menu also offers multiple signature dishes that are gluten-free - even our renowned Fish & Chips and Seafood Crepe are available gluten free! We also have a traditional Indian chef, once again trained in India, who grinds his spices fresh in-house, resulting in mouth-watering masalas! Perfection is our motto!!
