Had the Lunenburg special for breakfast. 🤮 Not edible. However the servers were absolutely awesome and they have a great view.

I had a bit of time before my excursion in Lunenburg and wanted to have a latte and a bite to eat. When I decided on The Savvy Sailor I asked if I could get just a latte and a sweet and that wasn't a...problem but they did forewarn me that the latte machine was acting up so couldn't promise me a latte. As that wasn't the end of the world I went in and was offered a table outside on the back deck so I could enjoy the view of the harbour which was lovely. It was a great fall day and perfect to enjoy the scenery. I ordered a regular coffee and decided to have a breakfast of the delicious sounding french toast with sliced bananas. And it didn't disappoint - lovely browned pieces with ample maple syrup and bananas. It was delicious and very filling. Staff was great and when I popped in to use the restroom they made sure I knew I left my jacket at the table in case I was leaving and forgot it. Kept a good eye on my coffee intake so I wasn't without and made sure everything was great. Would certainly go back again to try other items on their menu and enjoy the view.More

Great little spot with breakfast til 1 pm. We did not have breakfast but did notice other dinners and it looked great. Nice deck overlooking the Bluenose II and waterfront. Lots of tables inside. If wanting a table on the deck and it’s full, they...will take your name for a wait list. Fish sandwich is excellent.More

We travelled the East Coast quite extensively this autumn. Savvy Sailor served us the best meals for a reasonable price. The fish and scallops were outstanding, I wish other places would take a lesson from this place! It was a very busy Sunday and still...they accommodated our party of 4. The drinks were refreshing and the seafood fresh! Wonderful, attentive service.More

Great experience, fantastic food and grateful for a really good variety of gluten free options for my wife. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, even bringing out a fresh warm piece of gluten free bread for my wife to go with her chowder! I had...the chowder and a chicken panini and it was great! Definitely recommend!More

Fantastic food, friendly staff and lovely view. We had the haddock burrito and beet flatbread- both delicious and so nice to have something a bit different to the majority of nearby restaurants. Lots of other veggie options and it was handy there was a highchair...for our toddler. Definitely worth the wait to be seated.More

Food is okay but the front greeting staff is rude and impolite. I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone I know

We waited about 30 minutes at lunch for a table. Eventually the 4 of us were seated on the outdoor patio. Great view of the harbor. Everyone thought their meal was very good - Caesar salad, fish sandwich, chicken and cranberry wrap. Lots of menu...choices available. We’d go back.More

We had breakfast and it was delicious with wonderful local bacon, homemade bread and jam and the eggs were perfectly cooked. The servers were pleasant and the view was lovely with The Bluenose docked in the background.

This is by far my favorite seasonal restaurant in Lunenburg NS. The food is fresh and no deep fried foods which is a pleasant option. The lobster roll was great and came with a good sized serving of cold slaw. The pan fried haddock came...with an option of salads and the kale salad was delicious. The fish plate also came with rhubarb relish, which was lovely. Service excellent and ambiance nice with great views of the harbour.More

Out of four days in Lunenberg, we ate there for three. The drinks were to die for, and along with the meal, you couldn't ask for anything better.
