We arrived at the restaurant fairly late in the evening so it wasn't extremely busy but still had a bit of a wait for service but it was worth it .The fish & chips were very good but the chips were excellent .

Don't bother trying to eat here if you are wheelchair bound or otherwise have any type of mobility issues. No matter which entrance you use, there's a full fight of stairs.

Good Idea! Have Sushi as a starter as it's too good to miss. We all had the best fish and home made chips and fish (haddock) in Lunenburg in our opinion! A very beautiful day on the deck with an incredible view of the harbour..

Waited for 45 minutes for a bowl of soup. Waiter said it was due to the lunch rush. People that arrived after us got their food before we got our soup. When our main meal came out it was cold. Would not recommend.

We had lunch and dinner here. Lunch mussels (very good but nothing exceptional) and sushi (good). Dinner was the lobster dinner (very good - not had many to compare but thoroughly enjoyed) and the scallops (excellent - highly recommend). Would definitely eat here again.

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!!
