We enjoyed our dinner and view. We got there early and got a table by the window and enjoyed their happy hour specials. It was getting crowded by the time we left.

Friendly staff, kid friendly as well. Delicious lobster supper with mussels, we sat on the patio that was a bit breezy but still beautiful for the fall

The Old Fish Factory: four of us ate there in September before our intended sail on the Bluenose. The location, right on the wharf, was great. Food was very good and service was excellent. We would have no hesitation in returning.

It has been rare over the years that we have not patronized the Old Fish Factory when visiting Lunenburg. But it has been 10 years or so since we were last here. We arrived, however, to find little had changed. It was still on the dock near the Bluenose II and above the fisheries museum. There were 6 adults and... More

We ate here on our first night in Lunenburg and it was fine - hubby had fish and chips - two large pieces of battered haddock, scallops and huge shrimp and a LOT of fries! We wanted coffee afterwards and asked for white coffee which they had never heard of! Two countries divided by a common language. We learned our... More

Service was very good. The food was good, not great. I had fish and chips (lots of breaded, fried on the fish, I ended up taking it all off). My husband had fried fish, scallops and shrimp. His fish was the same as mine but he said the other seafood was more like a panko fried which was better. We... More

We planned to dine here on our 2nd night in Lunenburg. We wandered thru the virtual maze thru the fishery museum and hallways and finally found the entrance. After going outside for a cigarette I found a side entrance on the dock that takes you right upstairs into the bar area...much easier access. We bellied up to the bar for... More

We went over for a light afternoon meal and ordered a fish & chips. The fish was very crispy. It wasn't bad but nothing special about that dish. However, I have to say their service was excellent!!
