Nancy, the Manager at the WHEELHOUSE MOTEL & DINING ROOM ordered Hansi a Lobster for our dinner, for which we made reservations for 5:00 p.m. Hansi was not disappointed! The Lobster was HUGE and came with a ton of mussels, caesar salad and garlic bread - all for $24.99. I had the Fish & Chips Dinner which came with two pieces of fried fish, french fries and roll. All in all a great experience.
Located along the water and next to where the Old Historic Coffee Grounds restaurant was, Magnolia's Grill is a very good restaurant. We had the fresh scallops which are caught locally. They were hot and very tasty. The scallops came with brown rice and a vegetable. Service was pretty slow and the food took a fair amount of time to arrive. However once it arrived it was well worth the wait. For desert, we saw several people enjoying key lime pie but we passed on the desert. Cost of the meal was about average for Nova Scotia. The restaurant is busy in the evening so it is best to make a reservation.
Favorite Dish: Scallops, they are fresh.
I have eaten here twice, and have only praise so far! It's a small venue and it's always busy, so be sure to make a reservation a few days in advance or you may be out of luck.
It's not an everyday restaurant, as it's not cheap, but it's perfect for special occasions like an anniversary or a nice night out with friends.
The service is excellent and the food is even better. Out main dishes were a bit delayed coming out, so we were given a small dish of gelato to cleanse our palates while we were waiting. That's good service!
Favorite Dish: My favorite dish so far is the butternut squash ravioli! Perfectly cooked pasta, filled with a sweet squash mix, a creamy sauce with chunks of lobster. I didn't let a bit of sauce go to waste, much to the embarrassment of my husband!
My favorite dessert has to be the chocolate creme brule. Creamy and thick, it's just perfection.
This restaurant is a good place for getting some great pizza in Nova Scotia. Located close to the harbour (and thus providing great looks on coming and leaving ships), Big Red's offers a large variety of pizza and pasta. The service is friendly and attentive, prices are alright.
Favorite Dish: I had a very good pizza
There are lots of excellent restaurants in Lunenburg but we had a small problem: out of our little party of four, three would have nothing to do with fish and seafood! So we ended up going for pizza at Big Red's, a family restaurant located in Lunenburg's old jail - in fact, if you want, you can have dinner in a cell! But as the weather was gorgeous, we ate outside on the patio which offers a splendid view of the bay. The pizza was great, my sister had a generous portion of fish and chips, and kids get a free cookie! I should also mention that everything was very reasonably priced so in the end, everybody was quite happy with our choice of a restaurant!
Favorite Dish: The pizza was really good, apparently the secret is in the special Big Red's pizza sauce!
If you are having a day trip around Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay and Lunenburg area, then you can consider having lunch at Shatford's By the Sea. This seafood restaurant is located at 731, Highway 329, Fox Point and serves many delicious seafood dishes, especially the lobsters. The good thing about this restaurant is the the food is cheap as compared to restaurants at Halifax (because they are also a seafood wholesaler), the staff are friendly and the restaurant is very cosy with a good view of the sea (see photographs). I enjoyed my lobster and seafood lunch at tbis restaurant, and if you are interested, please check out their website at http://shatfordlobster.com and telephone (902)8573439 or email email@example.com
