I've visited the Salt Shaker several times now when I visit Lunenburg, I like it's quaint ambiance, bright and open. There is a lovely patio to sit at during the warmer months. I tend to normally order the Vegan Pizza each time. I love it. I've also sampled the Squash dish, which was delicious and the pad thai, which was... More

My husband and I shared the seafood chowder and beet salad, both GF and so good! The waitress offered me rice crackers instead of bread. Had the vanilla creme brûlée for dessert which was the perfect end to our lunch. Pizza dough and pasta noodles are not available gluten free but still enough options available. Overall very satisfying and good... More

We decided to check out the salt shaker brunch as our regular spot in town; the Savvy Sailor is closed for a couple of winter months. The space was empty on arrival at noon on a Saturday which was a bit worrisome; but quickly filled within half an hour as it is essentially the best spot in town that is... More

I usually love this restaurant. I'm a local so I've been here many, many times before, but after what I experienced last week - never again. I found either a beetle or a roach half way through eating my pad thai. Had the lighting not been dimmed, I would have seen it far sooner and I'm surprised I made it... More

We were visiting Lunenburg for the afternoon and decided to seek out a quaint place for lunch. We looked in several places in the downtown area but they were mostly empty. When we stepped inside this place it was full. We decided to keep looking. As we stepped on the sidewalk the waitress stopped us to tell us she could... More

This is an always reliable choice. Excellent thin crust individual pizzas, mussels, burgers and really good happy hour bar food offerings.

Went here for dinner with a few friends, and after a short wait they were able to accommodate our group of six people, and they even ended up staying open later (sorry!) Busy season, I guess. The food was fantastic though! I had the pear and proscuitto pizza and my boyfriend had the burger. Both were filling and delicious! The... More

Ordered the sausage/marinara Mussels (I usually like mussels steamed straight up but these sounded good and they were). My Fiance ordered a Smoked Chicken sandwich with cranberry dressing on an Artisan bun and side ordered of Butternut Squash soup and she thoroughly enjoyed it. Friendly staff - quick to sit, quick to order and quick to eat! They have a... More
