Try to get one of the tables on the balcony with a great view of the fishing boats in the harbor and have one of the lobster dinner specials.

Fluffy white towels, fabulous beds, very welcoming, calm, friendly. What more can you ask?! In the center of town, near shops and restaurants.

Excellent, friendly and prompt service. Food was typical seaside tourist fare, limited and unimaginative menu. Expensive for the quality. House wine substandard.

Overlooking the Lunenburg waterfront, the Rum Runner Restaurant & Lounge specializes in fresh Lunenburg seafood, purchased locally and prepared to order. Our menu also offers multiple signature dishes that are gluten-free - even our renowned Fish & Chips and Seafood Crepe are available gluten free! We also have a traditional Indian chef, once again trained in India, who grinds his spices fresh in-house, resulting in mouth-watering masalas! Perfection is our motto!!
