Our bus tour guide recommended lunch at this diner when we were on a tour of Halifax . This small diner is a busy , bustling and friendly place with good food. Many tourists, (maybe the guides get a free lunch!) We waited about 10 minutes for a table and saw a number of people eating the lobster lunch of... More

The Bluenose II diner is a must visit for breakfast or lunch. Filled and tourists so get there early.

The Bluenose II is a beautiful ship that has been a source of pride (and controversy) for Nova Scotia. Historic ships that keep the history and traditions of sailing alive are important reminders of the past. Watching her raise her sails in the Halifax harbor was breath-taking!

Spent a day in Lunenburg, and was fortunate that the Bluenose II happened to be there during my visit. It was a fairly windy day, so there was some doubt that we would be going out that afternoon. Fortunately, the wind calmed a bit, and off we went. What a ride - because it was a windier day, we got... More

Our tour guide recommended Bluenose for breakfast or any time if we were looking for fair prices, great service and decent food. Our breakfast here was very nice. You can even get eggs benedict with lobster, however eggs over easy with ham, potatoes and toast worked fine for me. I was also pleased that they have latte and espresso available.... More

A great place for tourists to go to get great food including seafood but not pay ridiculous prices. Great sauté or fried fish, good lobster sandwich. Great burgers all is good with daily specials.

Slow service but reasonable priced diner type restaurant. Expect to wait at least half an hour for a lobster meal. I was told that the lobster was fresh and it took that long to cook. Don't have the lobster if you don't like the idea of it being killed specially for you. (I felt bad about it.)

I've been touring the Halifax area for almost 2 weeks now and Lunenburg (the town where the blue nose II is located) is the most beautiful place I've visited. It features bright colourful houses, a variety of restaurants and lots of sail boats. It was absolutely beautiful, we did not want to leave. The bluenose itself is very cool to... More

Enjoyed seeing the replica of the famous tall masted Bluenose as it departed from Lunenberg dock. Its sails every 3 hours so you can see it under power or sail if you time it right. You need to book months in advance if you want to take the cruise, but check at the dock as they sometimes have cancelations or... More
