Fresh Lobster & Live Music: The East Coast done right

Date Posted: July 27, 2017Reading time: 2 minutes


We’re taking a weekly look at something or some place we love in Nova Scotia! Follow along each week this summer as we celebrate well-known favourites and local hidden gems.

“So, where can I get some local, delicious, insanely fresh seafood?”

It’s the number one question tourists ask when they come to Nova Scotia, and depending on who you ask, there are many different answers. When we have clients visiting from out of town, our favourite recommendation to make, beyond some of the downtown Halifax gems, is the Shore Club in Hubbards.

World-famous for their Lobster Suppers, it’s no surprise that the Shore Club has been visited by the likes of the late Princess Diana, and has been voted one of the top 10 Must-Try Canadian Restaurants. Wednesday through Sunday nights all summer long, guests can choose from small, medium or large lobster suppers, surf and turf, unlimited mussels and more. We recommend holding out all day, arriving hungry and ordering up a large, two-pound lobster supper. You’ll be glad you did!

If you go on a Saturday night, you can also take advantage of the Shore Club’s Saturday dances in what is deemed “Nova Scotia’s Last Great Dance Hall.” With top-notch live entertainment and a happenin’ dance floor, the Shore Club definitely serves up a great party, in addition to lobster. If you’re looking for the full Shore Club experience, you can save some money and cut the line for the dance with the Saturday Lobster Supper & Dance package. To time it right, you can enjoy a scenic stroll along the waterfront after dinner and return to the club around 10 p.m. when the dance is kicking off, with live music acts from famous east coast musicians like Joel Plaskett, Yukon Blonde, Matt Mays and more.

Whether you’re going down on a weeknight for Lobster or a Saturday for the full Lobster and live music experience, you’re sure to have a great time at the Shore Club. Check out the full menu and live band schedule and start planning your trip today!
