Before fishermen discovered the edibility of fish, they used each catch as bait for larger species, hoping in the end to hook the biggest fish of all—friendship. Cast your lure with today's Groupon to The Five Fishermen Restaurant and Grill Choose from three options:

The Five Fishermen Restaurant doles out award-winning seafood in two dining rooms within the rustic confines of a nearly 200-year-old building. For brunch, diners lounge in the lavish dining room, replete with wine-covered walls, and quiet a smack-talking belly with the east coast seafood omelette, a nautical medley rife with lobster, salmon, scallops, and halibut ($11). Mid-morning munchers can also opt out of seafood-centric fare with the corn-crusted brioche French toast drizzled with locally produced maple syrup ($10). Lunch offers entrees such as the fish 'n' chips with beer battered haddock ($15), and dinner pads tongues in an ermine cape of flavour, with sumptuous entrees such as the boiled lobster dinner, accompanied by a warm bacon and fingerling potato salad ($39). A vast wine list, boasting a variety of Nova Scotian wines (starting at $5.80 per glass), makes for a meal as refined and memorable as a Shakespearean monologue recited atop a unicorn.
