Nice spot to relax

Nice spot with a view on the river. Ice cream is really good, and the beer too! Just off the trail, easy to stop by while bicycling!

A nice place right on the river to hang out with friends, and just watch the hustle and bustle of the city.

I live downtown and taking a short walk to the river side is a great thing to do. I've stopped at the lighthouse many times. I've had the ice cream and I've had their burger - excellent all! The raised seating provides a great vantage point and there's always a bit of soft breeze. Wonderful place :)

At least it seems to be THE place to go in Fredericton on a Saturday evening! Outside seating with a walk up window for beers and burgers... Beautiful view of the St John River, outside barbeque... A lighthouse with 64 stairs to a cool observation deck... how could you want more? The ice cream was so yummy my daughter asked... More

We went here for dinner when we spent the night in Fredericton. My friend had the burger and it was very good. I ordered the chicken and unfortunatly it was not cooked properly all the way through and we couldn't eat it all. Their ice cream was good! The view of the water from the outdoor patio was nice.

Ice cream was great as was the view and service. As one of the few places in Fredericton where you can get a scoop, I go here often.

The location is gorgeous. It was a little confusing finding parking from the direction our GPS took us, but we took advantage of the beautiful weather, and gorgeous walking trail to get there. The ice cream was just regular ice cream. Nothing fancy. But they did offer other food as well. A beautiful place to sit.
