A great place to eat and enjoy the view of the harbour. Even though it was a chilly evening, we sat on the deck with warm blankets provided for our comfort! The fish was delicious and the service superb.

Centrally located with a very attentive staff. We ordered the masala as we noticed the chef was from India however were disappointed in the flavours. He did try to correct the heat to add some spice . Overall experience was good.

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