Sit at seafood bar or out at picnic tables on deck... a "small plate" restaurant, so you order a few plus drinks... beautifully prepared... very chic presentation without fussy service or attitude... well, I mean, you are at picnic tables. In a party that doesn't want the precious little plates? You can order fish and chips, etc, from the resto sharing the deck with this place.

We had dinner plans at another place, but stopped here for a while before and had the nicest time. Great people, drinks and appetizers. The meals also looked fantastic, but we had pre-planned another place. Next time will do dinner here!

we showed up just before closing and they treated us great and the food was amazing and priced just right (maybe even on the cheap side for the quality of both :D )

Very good food would highly recommend this restaurant. Service was a little impersonal but efficient. Other servers seemed more personable.

The outside area of this restaurant is ideal for absorbing the atmosphere of Lunenburg from both a street view and a water view. The meals are tasty, reasonably priced, and well presented by staff members who make customers feel welcome. The layout of the deck is ideal for enjoying your own company or meeting and conversing with folks you just met.
