Golden Fish restaurant
The Big Red's Family Restaurant at 80 Montague Street served as the Golden Fish restaurant, run by the Lam family.

Lunenburg is famous for being a very colorful village, although the chromatic tone of the series makes it look blue and gloomy.

The spot on the waterfront where Harry met Sally Percy is located at the end of Bluenose Drive.

Lunenburg may be familiar to you as the town is also the filming location of the Matheson town in Massachusetts where Locke and Key was filmed.

Hanover Island is actually an amalgam of several locations.

Brilliant show, such a shame USA TV Network has canceled the show as Bill Pullman is fantastic in it as a detective investigating murders.

They did a fine job of making it look like Maine, as there are very few spots in Nova Scotia that have those tiny granite Maine-like islands. I've spent many summers there and thought they mixed in some shots from the Down East coast of Maine. Great season! My favorite yet. one of the very best shows on the WWW.
