Attractive dining room, attentive staff and excellent food - my Dad and I both had the Masala curry and it was good value for a very good meal.

we had our lunch on the patio overlooking the harbor. The food and service was very good. The menu was primarily seafood but also had burgers, salads and chicken.

While walking down the main street, decided to have lunch at this place because of TA reviews. We were not disappointed! Got a table on the deck, with a wonderful view of the harbor. The service was wonderful and the food even better! All of us totally enjoyed it -- I'd go back in a second!

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!
