We had lunch here on our way to oak island...price was right, food was good and the location is unbeatable on a sunny day. Would return for sure!

Our family recently ate at Rope Loft...and with the exception of one thing it was practically perfect. Great atmosphere, clean, wonderful service and taste wise the food was really 'really' good...except for the Lobster Roll. After just one bite.. the roll itself completely disintegrated and split apart like a 3 day old hot dog bun... leaving me now holding two bread sticks and the lobster contents on the plate and not in the roll. Please.. go back to the drawing board and re-design your lobster roll. While everything else got a 4/5, the Rope Loft lobster Roll warrants a 1/5 at best.

12 of us had an amazing dinner. The service was exceptional and the food was spectacular. I had a Greek salad. Made to order and so fresh. The bowl of seafood chowder was one of the best that I have had. Portion size is not for faint of heart. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal. Heather looked after the table - separate checks was no problem. Good sense of humour and worked well with the large table.
A wonderful memory of Nova Scotia.
Do not miss the opportunity to visit this establishment.

This pub was completely full of fruit flies and the beer cost more here than any other place in our 10 days of travel.

We stopped on route from Halifax to Lunenberg and, having already eaten, confined ourselves to a drink on the terrace overlooking the harbour
The service was slow but our drinks were good and all those around us who were eating, certainly seemed to be enjoying their food, which definitely looked appetising
We were sorry we had already eaten at a mediocre roadside cafe, but next time we will know better!
