Enjoyed a nice bowl of seafood chowder with great view of the harbour and wharf. Staff friendly and attentive. Only drawback was no wine or beer. Would have liked to have had a glass of white wine to go with the chowder.

We heard lots about Big Red's pizza and it was good, their homemade bread is amazing. The restaurant has a nice view of the downtown Lunenburg area and the waterfront.

I had the seafood chowder and sandwich which was very good. You sit inside but it overlooks the harbour which is a great view. The homemade coconut cream pie was delicious!! Highly recommend. The server was very friendly.
