Ordered the sausage/marinara Mussels (I usually like mussels steamed straight up but these sounded good and they were). My Fiance ordered a Smoked Chicken sandwich with cranberry dressing on an Artisan bun and side ordered of Butternut Squash soup and she thoroughly enjoyed it. Friendly staff - quick to sit, quick to order and quick to eat! They have a... More

We stayed in Lunenburg for three nights and ate here twice, so that tells you something. One night we were able to eat on the deck facing the harbor which was lovely. The next night the weather forced us to dine inside. No problem. The food was all excellent. I recommend the liver pate, mussels and seafood chowder. It's a... More

This place feels like a secret place that chefs cook food they would prepare for each other. Service is professional, not " hi my name is Brittany.." but as it would be in Europe- helpful and sincere. Try the happy hour bar snacks, they are delicious. The pizzas are great and the food in general is excellent, local fare. We... More

Was staying at the attached Spinnaker Inn upstairs and had a nice time here even though the weather was a bit foggy. When we woke up we needed a place to eat and came downstairs and had to wait even thought it was 9 am. Good sign and the place was bustling After about 20 minutes we we sitting down... More

5 of us had lunch. 3 of us had fish cakes with Caesar salad the fish cakes and chow were awesome,the salad was mediocre . 2 people had sandwiches that were nothing special.the waiter forgot the soup that one person ordered. The atmosphere was crowded and dark.

Small but very busy and very cute place to eat, if you can get a seat. After picking up a guide magazine in Halifax, Salt Shaker Deli had an article featured in it, which was perfect for us with a trip to Lunenburg already planned, we decided to eat there without even looking at other options. I had the Fish... More

My wife and I visited the Salt Shaker Deli in Lunenberg earlier this month whilst on a coach tour of New England and the Canadian Maritimes. I had the seafood chowder which was delicious, with two plump scallops in teh chowder. I'd even go so far as saying it was probably the best chowder I had whist we toured the... More

We ate at the Salt Shaker Deli on a beautiful fall day. It was the end of October and we were still able to utilize their outdoor deck. The deck has a view of the harbour which we enjoyed. The server was friendly, fast and efficient. The portion size was generous but not overwhelming. The menu had something for everyone... More
