Lunenburg is one of those picture perfect towns, lovely little streets, etc. Rum Runner has porch seating with a good view of the wharf. We not only ate there, we also stayed at the attached hotel, and that too was very nice. Highly recommended.

We made reservations so we managed to get a nice table on the patio. The food was very good but we did have to wait quite a while. Luckily we were in no hurry and were enjoying the drinks and conversation, so this didn't bother us. My husband wanted the carrot cake for dessert but they were out, so he... More

The fish and chips are all gluten free and in all honesty one of the best I have ever had both gluten free and non gluten free. Chips and homemade coleslaw are also very good.

the views are great and service was very friendly, at first I thought there are so many different food styles like sushi, Indian and east coast seafood, that they specialize in too many things and was confusing. Once you try the food you know that no matter what they have on the menu that it will be great! We had... More

My wife, sister-In-law and I visited here for a late lunch. Had an amazing meal with very friendly and attentive staff. Also a must try is the Indian Masala they have on the menu! Very difficult to find good Indian food in NS but this is well worth the drive. Hope to see more on the menu when the next... More

My wife and I have been here 4 or 5 times in the last year. It is our "go to" spot when showcasing NS culinary skills to visitors from away. The food, service and atmosphere never disappoint. I recommend the chicken masala. It's awesome! The cashew sauce and chutney are incredible! As an added touch the chef/owner always makes the... More

We stopped here for lunch and, although we found the menu to be a bit limited, everything we ordered was excellent. It is always nice when everyone at the table enjoys their meal! Good service too.

Family ate out on the balcony with a great view of the harbor. The lobster was great. Others had the fish and enjoyed this also. They had the chips and they were very tasty.

Visited on a sunny Saturday afternoon in August for lunch. Located at one end of the string of restaurants and shops, there is a beautiful view of the harbourfront from either the patio or from inside. We ate inside which was cool and refreshing after walking around on a warm day (ok, the patio was busy). The restaurant has lots... More

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