Visited today and while one of our party had fish& chips from the next door Fish Shack which was excellent great portions done well. Our experience was wanting, the server was fantastic and pleasant. My Paella was far from what was expected, mussels and scallops were under cooked, scarce on the dish, two pieces of chorizo dried up, over priced for the serving. I have had it elsewhere and expected it to be as great sorry didn’t get to level. My mother had the fish chowder and had to really look for the fish. Disappointing but the Fish Shack was top notch.

It’s not good for group people. No indoor seat and outside seat also very limited. We order seafood tower. The raw scallops were best. Raw clam also clean well and was tasty.

Really disappointed in the service here. Was greeted well but when the server was given different information from coworkers her attitude changed dramatically. Really inappropriate for the customer service to be so negatively effected by the inner workings of the restaurant. Then waited about 20min for a bowl of chowder - which we were told would take 5-7min. Too bad because I had been looking forward to trying their food since having fish and chips next door a few weeks ago.

We stopped in for lunch while travelling through Lunenburg. Great view. Started with oysters, followed by a bowl of chowder. On the pricey side but Seafood was tasty and fresh and well paired with some local beer. Service was friendly and attentive. Great spot.

We had to choose a restaurant today to take our 4 friends from out of province to for lunch in the afternoon. Absolutely perfect choice with a great view of the harbour, incredible seafood, and the service was spot on. We had the Tower (seafood mix) and a few other dishes and drinks. Absolutely no complaints. Just a fantastic experience in every way!
