East Coast Lobster Dinner Party

Sunset over Murphy’s Restaurant

A visit to the East Coast isn’t complete without a classic lobster dinner! Whether you’ve been to the city a thousand times, or it’s your first time in Halifax- a lobster dinner is a must-have! Join us at Murphy’s The Cable Wharf located right on the Halifax Waterfront for your very own lobster dinner. This restaurant sits right on top of the water, so you can dine on a delicious lobster with the sea breeze crossing though open windows!

Dinner service includes a tossed green salad to start, the main course- lobster served with potato salad and coleslaw. For dessert you’ll be served deep dish apple crisp with whipped cream and caramel sauce.

Vegetarians welcome– we will have the option of a vegetarian stir fry in lieu of a lobster.

Not a fan of seafood? Not a problem- you can choose our alternative main course which is a chicken breast with mashed potato and vegetables.

Local Nova Scotian Wine (both red and white) will be on the table for you to enjoy with your lobster. That’s on us- your other drinks can be purchased from a cash bar on site.

Stay for the party after your dinner we’re going to have a live East Coast band playing well into the night so get your dancing shoes on!
