The Salt Shaker Deli is an incredible place to eat in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. The food is always exceptional and the wait staff are very attentive. In the summer you can sit outside on the deck and enjoy the view of the ocean.

We enjoyed our simple meal here - we were welcomed with a smile even thought we arrived after 9.30 at night! Nothing like a fresh fish for light meal. Cooked to perfection with very little grilling fat!
