We had lunch at the Salt Shaker Deli. They have an excellent choice in pizzas. My wife had the lobster roll that she enjoyed. And the the bread pudding we shared was superb. The service was very good. Great experience.

Stopped by to take some deli sandwiches on the road. While we waited the brunch items smelled amazing and the place was busy. The sandwiches were delicious. Will stay and eat in next time just to enjoy the space and sample some other menu items.

I've eaten lunch here a few times before and have always enjoyed their food (pulled pork tacos and pizza being favorites, but I imagine everything is great here). Today being a Saturday, they were serving their brunch menu in addition to the regular all-day offerings, so my associate and I both opted for the huevos rancheros. It was unanimous: the... More

Best dinner so far during our two weeks in the Maritimes. Very friendly, attentive service. It´s off-season and Restaurant was packed at 6 PM - both with (a few) Tourists and (more) locals. Amazing. Had mussels as a starter and then the daily special - linguine with prawns and paprika, a bit of goat cheese, and spider crab ravioli. All... More

Had the Hawaiian pizza and salad. Was very good. It was light and not greasy. My husband had the BLT and loved it.

This is a small pub nestled amongst the historic properties in downtown Lunenburg. The food and service is good. The food selection is limited but better and somewhat unique than what you typically expect in a pub. It is attractive seniors and families but the younger crowd enjoy it as well if looking for good food and ambience.

After we returned from an amazing sailing ride aboard the Bluenose II we headed to the Salt Shaker Deli situated on the pier. We were cold from being out on the open water so we had hot soup and sandwich coffee and hot chocolate. The lobster bisque soup and the lobster roll was the best we tasted along our trip.... More
