In addition to having excellent fish and chips, this restaurant offers a beautiful water view. The Bluenose II is docked right across the street - doesn't get much better than that. Service was prompt and the portions were more than enough.

Overlooking the Lunenburg waterfront, the Rum Runner Restaurant & Lounge specializes in fresh Lunenburg seafood, purchased locally and prepared to order. Our menu also offers multiple signature dishes that are gluten-free - even our renowned Fish & Chips and Seafood Crepe are available gluten free! We also have a traditional Indian chef, once again trained in India, who grinds his spices fresh in-house, resulting in mouth-watering masalas! Perfection is our motto!!
