Restaurant is situated on the first floor of a red warehouse type building, overlooking the water. Good service. Delicious dinner-ordered the pan fried haddock with garlic mash.

We stopped in here because 4 years ago when we visited we had the fried haddock and it was delicious. We had it again and it was delicious once more.

Loved our lunch here with a bunch of family and friends. On a warm spring day sitting outside enjoying beer and wine and fresh mussels and fish n chips. It just doesn’t get any better right? Everything was delicious and great!

Liked the old school charm here, and nice to sit at a window with a view of the water. Enjoyable experience.

Busy but big enough to fit us in unlike a lot of other restaurants in Lunenburg. Friendly staff, a great view from our table over the harbour and tasty food.
