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

We stayed in Lunenburg for three nights and ate here twice, so that tells you something. One night we were able to eat on the deck facing the harbor which was lovely. The next night the weather forced us to dine inside. No problem. The food was all excellent. I recommend the liver pate, mussels and seafood chowder. It's a... More

This place feels like a secret place that chefs cook food they would prepare for each other. Service is professional, not " hi my name is Brittany.." but as it would be in Europe- helpful and sincere. Try the happy hour bar snacks, they are delicious. The pizzas are great and the food in general is excellent, local fare. We... More

When we woke up we needed a place to eat and came downstairs and had to wait even thought it was 9 am. Good sign and the place was bustling After about 20 minutes we we sitting down... More
