We had a great server…didn’t get her name. She was very knowledgeable about the food options and gave us great advice.
We dined there to celebrate my wife’s birthday. We were very pleased with everything, food, service, value etc.
Fantastic service and a great meal. Would go back again and again if I lived closer. Would love to see just a little more wine choices.
Wow! 10/10 would recommend. Food + cocktails were absolutely delicious, and full of flavour. The decor is super tasteful and the servers were very experienced. If you want to eat at the best place in Lunenburg, Book your reso here NOW.
Carol was great — thank you. Food and drinks were beautiful.
Only feedback was our meal came so quickly we wished we had a bit more time prior.
But regardless— LOVED IT🌈
Mains and drinks were incredible. Appetizers were good but not worth the high price. Dessert needed some more flavour, we had the Almond cake.
Honeymoon dinner did not disappoint. Service, food and wine selection was excellent.
Wonderful resturant . Varied menu from land and sea. Everything was great. Highly recommend
Made a reservation here while on vacation and so glad we did. Food was fantastic. Started with and shared the calamari with my wife. I had the Scallop and Rabbit Risotto as a main and it was the Beal dish I have had in some time. My wife had the Hanger steak and it was solid as well.
If you come to Lunenburg, you gotta eat here!
Excellent food, service could have been a little better. Restaurant was very hot, poor airflow.
Recommended to us by our hotel, the Rum Runner Inn, Beach Pea fully met our expectations!
Our experience was exceptional. The food was delicious and we tried the cocktails and enjoyed. We will plan to return.
Enjoyed our first visit to The Beach Pea. Calamari wasn’t as tender as we would expect, not as an appetizer and in the Pasta Sepia dish. The Calamari dish, overall was very tasty and would have been excellent if more tender, same for the Pasta. The Lobster Tagliatelle was good, but for us too much tarragon. We preferred the Magnolia Grill's Lobster Linguine. O really excellent service and nice ambience.
The Beach Pea is my favorite restaurant and it never disappoints! The food is fantastic; and Amanda, Carol, and Steve offer some of the best dining service around.
Overall we had a very good dinner including appetizers and dessert . The service was great and ambiance is lovely.
Both the drinks and food selection were outstanding. We ordered a variety of dishes for appetizers and main courses.
The Tuna tartar was under-seasoned, that is lacked salt and acidity which we were able to cure with a simple lemon wedge which greatly improved the dish.
The Gnochi were very slightly dense and the duck in it was fatty which made the meal very heavy. Something to cut through the fat, lack of some acid was a problem.
However all food was delicious, the ambience great and the drink selection was outstanding. We started off with Pol Roger for the appetizers and that was as always just beautiful, and a great French red Bordeaux for the main course.
Thank you it was great!
We had the halibut and the Lunenberg Bay scallops but the servings were very small.
Expensive for what we had. Don't go too hungry!
We are both chefs, looking for local food , well prepared !
This was the place! Great fresh local ingredients, cooked perfectly,
The staff is very friendly, the food is delicious and the decor is warm and cozy. Great views of the Harbour from the outdoor deck.
Great selection of delicious dishes and interesting cocktails
Lovely Bistro in heart of Lunenburg. Reservations a must.
We had high expectations going in but were disappointed. The food quality was poor, the lamb very tough and my wife's steak was tough and chewy. We ate inside and the room was full of smoke from the open kitchen resulting in very poor air quality. To top it all the beer was warm.
I have dined here several times and find the quality always excellent. A great menu. Very obliging servers.
The Beach Pea was very nice! The atmosphere is very cozy and the food was delicious!!
The Beach Pea is my favourite restaurant in Lunenburg but I enjoy it's sister places as well. The menu is different and creative, the white interior is fresh and modern, friendly and approachable. The staff is truly the best, friendly and accommodating. I aways looking forward to going to the Beach Pea.
The food was excellent. Fresh pasta and seafood. Very flavourful and good size portions. Reasonably priced for the value.
One of the best restaurant meals I have had all summer. Service was smooth friendly and professional. This restaurant knows what they are all about. Can't wait to return with a group of friends to share the deliciousness with.
Wonderful. The service is exceptional! We were seated indoors and the hostess was able to get us outdoors upon request.
I couldn’t decide on a wine so she brought me 3 samples. I went with Lightfoot Rose.
Our meal was excellent. I had Beach Pea salad and halibut and my husband had the Sepia pasta. AMAZING! We shared an upside down pineapple cake.
Well done! Will be back!
Appetiser was really tasty and well presented. The hanger steak likewise. The lamb reduction was watery and not rich and thick as expected. The Pannacotta was sour and unappetising - no sweetness at all. The Financier cake was well received. Overall good but uninspiring at time. Drinks were excellent.
Perfect to celebrate our 25th anniversary in one of our favourite restaurants. The food was amazing and a nice Bordeaux to go with it. The octopus was like being in the Mediterranean and the pasta like Italy. The next best thing to a European trip.
This is a neat spot with a great menu. Usually they nail any dish you choose but twice now they have missed on the lamb which I usually love. Once overcooked and last night undercooked. I know land should be on the rare side but last night was just a shade too much on the rare side. You know how it is did not want to be that guy and send it back when others were enjoying their choices.
Service was amazing
We had a wonderful time! The food was absolutely amazing!!! We were very impressed and will definitely be back! Thank you!
Our two pasta mains were outstanding, while the appetizers were just good. Service was attentive and pleasant. Would definitely return.
Great atmosphere and service. Inspired
Menu, would love to return.
Absolutely fantastic food, the service was great. I would recommend the whole menu but the pasta was over the top.
Might be the best pasta outside of Italy. We are hard to impress, but we were impressed. Slightly small portion of Octopus but didn't leave hungry. A must try.
An enjoyable meal at The Beach Pea! The pasta a la norma is richly flavoured
and the mocktails are special- few places do them this well.
For dessert we shared the almond cake financier- a delicate, pleasant treat, though the flavours could be a bit bolder, especially the lemon.
Seating was prompt, pleasant and covid-aware. Service was excellent. We will return.
My friend and I had a wonderful evening eating at the bar last evening. Everything about our experience was noteworthy; comfortable relaxing atmosphere, delicious food, and entertaining conversation with the bar tender. Can hardly wait to go again!
Staff weren’t friendly. Didn’t check to see how meal was or anything other than taking your order. Disappointing
