Spring Update!

We’ve been enjoying the winter here at Rime, but we’re definitely looking forward to spring. We’ve done some renovations over the last couple months – kitchen revamp, new floors on the bar level – and we’re excited to show them off. So, on that note…

We will be back on Thursday, April 4th! (That’s less than four weeks away!) Starting on the 4th, we will be open five days a week, Wed-Sun, from 5:00 to 9:00 pm.

We are looking forward to seeing familiar faces back again, and to welcoming folks who may not have had a chance to check us out. New to Lunenburg or the area? Come in and meet Jeff, Sam, Meghan, and the rest of the crew, and let them take care of you.

Here’s a sneak peek of the floor in progress; you’ll just have to come back in to see the finished product for yourself!

Hope to see you soon!

New Year’s Eve & Holiday Hours

New Year’s Eve is almost here! Do you have your reservations yet?

On Dec. 31st, Rime will be open from 5:00 pm until after midnight. In place of our regular selection, we will be offering a special NYE menu: four courses for $65 per person, or six courses, including sparkling wine, for $85.

There are no set seating times, but we strongly encourage you to make your reservations now by calling 902 640 3112, emailing us at dine@rimerestaurant.ca, or sending us a message right here.

Spaces are filling quickly – don’t miss your chance!


Please note that Rime will be closed from Dec. 23rd to 27th, and we will re-open for regular dinner service on Friday, Dec. 28th.

Fall Hours

Fall is here with cooler weather and reduced hours.

Rime will be closed Mondays & Tuesdays through the fall, as well as on Sunday, Oct. 7th, to give our staff some extra time off for Thanksgiving.

Rime will remain open Wednesday to Sunday, starting at 5:00pm.

We look forward to seeing you!

Summer Hours

Sure, it’s still technically spring here, but we’re already running on summer hours. Rime is now open seven days a week starting at 5:00 pm.


And while we’ve got your attention…


We’ve said it before, and we’ll definitely say it again: Buck-a-shuck is on now!
From 5:00 to 6:00 pm with the purchase of a drink, beautiful fresh Atlantic oysters are just $1 each. That’s right – just one dollar. Reservations are not required, but as summer gets closer, they are recommended.


You can make your booking with us by calling 902 640 3112 or emailing dine@rimerestaurant.ca. Or if you’d rather, you can find us here at 9 King St. in Lunenburg and just drop in and say hi.


We can’t wait to see you!



Buck-A-Shuck is Back!

It’s that time of year again: buck-a-shuck.

Between 5:00 and 6:00 pm every day, with the purchase of a drink, you can get beautiful Atlantic oysters on the half shell – served on ice with house-made red pepper sauce and just the right amount of lime – for just $1 each.

And you can get as many of them as you want.

One-dollar oysters and a fantastic selection of wines (and a few great brews, too!). What more could you need?

Our Spring hours are still in effect, and we are open Wednesday to Sunday, from 5:00 to 9:00 pm. Reservations are not necessary, but are recommended. 902 640 3112 or dine@rimerestaurant.ca

We’ve updated our menu!

We’ve shifted things around a little for the winter, and we have a few great new dishes!


For starters, we now have delicious moo shu pancakes, with just the right amounts of “pickled” and “deep fried”:

One of our new mains is lamb roulade, with creamy polenta, cardamom buffalo yogurt, mushrooms, vegetables, and natural jus:

Another is a twenty-five (yes, really) layer lasagna, with fresh pasta, vegetarian ragù, house-made gouda, and vegetables:

All twenty-five layers, perfectly crispy around the edges!

We will also be featuring our Valentine’s Menu from Feb. 10th to 16th, with four courses for only $65 per person, and paired wine suggestions.

Don’t forget to make your reservations! You can reach us by calling 902 640 3112, emailing us at dine@rimerestaurant.ca, or booking via OpenTable!


We look forward to seeing you!

Coming soon to Rime & the Lunenburg Academy of Music Performance

On October 6th, before you head to LAMP to see acclaimed mezzo soprano Daniela Barcellona perform works by Schumann, Brahms, Gounod, and Rossini, join us at Rime Restaurant + Wine Bar, where ticket holders can enjoy six cold oysters, or an order of calamari, and a glass of Prosecco for only $15, between 5:00 and 6:30.


Not sure you’ll have time before the show? Then join us afterward, where presentation of your ticket stub will get you a complimentary cocktail – our seasonal Blueberry Gin, featuring Ironworks gin and blueberry liqueur and fresh lavender (yes, even this late in the season!). We think Taste of Nova Scotia has the right idea with their Blueberry & Lavender Gin Fizz, and we’ve put our own spin on it.


Don’t have your tickets for Friday night yet? Our friends at LAMP can help you out. And while you’re in town for Barcellona’s performance, don’t forget to check out Ironworks, Terra Beata, and us here at Rime.


We look forward to seeing you!
