Wonderful atmosphere, service, staff and food. Get there before they close in October 2018 . Reservations required. Ask about the tasting menu with or without wine pairings.

found this restaurant on open table and boy am I happy we went there for dinner, a true gem for Lunenburg!! Food was excellent and the customer service was outstanding to say the least. A bit pricy but well worth it!!

Definitely. We were able to have a few reservation options within a week of arriving in the area last August but it's a very popular restaurant and well worth going. I think the only thing they had was around 10 p.m. so... More
