Friendly service in a pub atmosphere. The high point was the best fish and chips we had in a two touring holiday of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. I would go back to Shelburne just for the fish and chips!

Fabulous seafood chowder, huge chunks of haddock, lobster, shrimp and scallops in a wonderful creamy broth. Great service. Looks like nothing from the street, but once inside the food will keep you coming back. It's a little noisy, though worth it.

If you're looking for fancy decor or ambiance, this isn't it. But if you're looking for delicious food at reasonable prices, you're in luck. All of our group had seafood and we were all very pleased. I had the haddock bites done in panko breadcrumbs...More

The Ship's Galley is adding items to their regular menu, along with more selections in specials (like the weekly Double Burger and Healthy Choice options). A new addition is the turkey burger with sweet-potato fries. Delicious!

The chicken wings were massive and a great price on wing night. Burger was great but looked small in the massive bun. The Iced tea came with a glass and ice, as did the free water, but our sodas just came in the can which...More

I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the fries. Unfortunately, because we cut our fries fresh every morning using PEI or NS potatoes, there is a lot of variability in our fries because we get sent whatever is in season or holds the longest in...More

Our 'go to' burger pub in Shelburne. Their Galley Burger is a hearty helping of 'delish' that is a reliably good taste from visit to visit. It's close and easy which helps as well. Home cut fries are cut fairly small and that adds to...More

Nothing "prepackaged" here. More than just "pub food". Great atmosphere, excellent service! The burgers are awesome, as well as their "lobster poutine" which is a must try!

Have eaten here a few times and everything we tried has been most satisfactory. The service is a bit slow but worth it to get nice fresh cooked food. Still items on the menu we want to try and we will go back.

Staying at a local motel for the night and we were wandering around Shelburne on a Saturday evening. The one restaurant we tried to get into was booked for the entire evening, so we started searching. Found this little gem on Water Street. Very good...More
