Hall’s Harbour, NS ~ This little fishing village is so much more than just a photographer’s paradise, beckoning food lovers from near and far.

HALL’S HARBOUR is the quintessential postcard depiction of Nova Scotia. A 20-minute drive north of Kentville, this little fishing village is so much more than just a photographer’s paradise, beckoning food lovers from near and far. Hall’s Harbour Lobster Pound is a local favourite but it also has a dedicated group of cottagers and visitors who return to the area each summer.

A lobster buying and shipping facility, Hall’s Harbour Lobster Pound ships more than 1.5 million pounds of the tasty crustacean worldwide annually so it’s no surprise that lobster is the number one seller in the restaurant.

The chefs at Hall’s Harbour prepare it in the traditional Maritime way: boiled in salt water from the Bay of Fundy and dipped in a little warm butter. Lobster rolls and seafood chowder are also hugely popular. If lobster isn’t your thing try the fish and chips or the pan-fried haddock; both also receive wide acclaim and their generous fisherman’s baskets aren’t to be missed!

After dinner take a stroll along miles of cobblestone beaches, meandering boardwalks or hiking trails. Asked to sum up the experience offered at Hall’s Harbour Lobster Pound, owner Sharla Cameron says, “Hall’s Harbour is not just a seafood restaurant. With our location on the Bay of Fundy, our fishermen, our community and our local staff—all together it creates a beautiful tapestry.” ~AB
