My husband loved his homemade sausages and kraut dinner and my lobster clubhouse was good. It's a great spot, and the view from the front porch is the one they used for their profile photo, so yeah: beautiful area.

We took this picture right next to the Resturant. It’s one of my favorites. The lobster club/roll is amazing. Great place to stop while you tour the area.

The lobster stuffed mushroom appetizer was very good, it could do with a bit more lobster however. Seafood platter was also very good and enough for seniors to share one order.

We stopped here after touring Peggy's Cove. We didn't know what to expect; a nice peaceful break for lunch would have been enough. But we were treated to great food, served by a friendly waitress. I had an extremely delicious Caesar salad with lobster. My...More

Nestled between highway 333 and St Margaret’s Bay, The Finer Diner is a popular stop all year long. This quaint eatery is a welcoming licensed restaurant featuring classic diner fare, Nova Scotian favorites, and playful daily specials. You will find interesting Fine Art painting and sculpture in an old fashioned setting with incredible views of the historic fishing inlet called Boutilier’s Cove. Guests can enjoy a sunset meal on our covered patio, or a slice of our homemade pie in a cozy booth. The diner is a renovated general store and has been the heartbeat of Hackett’s Cove for over 100 years. We look forward to serving you.
