If you have few minutes while visiting Downtown, this is a good place to be. Just stop, look all around and enjoy the beautiful Saint John river.

A must visit for a unique lunch or to enjoy a homemade ice cream cone while taking in the gorgeous views from the deck. For those looking for exercise you are able to climb to the top of the Lighthouse.

There's lots of ice cream for the kids ... big kids too. The... More

They also have artifacts such as old newspaper clippings to read. The view from the top is pretty and downstairs they sell ice cream. This... More

We stopped here on a Sunday for a late lunch. The food was great and the patio gave a fantastic view of the St. John River. We only wished we had found the spot earlier. The lighthouse can be seen from the downtown square, but you don't know there is a restaurant until you walk over to the front of... More

We stop at the Lighthouse on the Green (snack bar) for a couple of beers and bbq sausages on buns.....$32 later......that's right folks $32 for 2 beer and 2 sausages. To say we were gobsmacked would be an understatement. Moral of this story is if you are... More

We walk down on the green summer, spring and fall and enjoy a ice cream or a break at the Lighthouse. There are bikes there you can rent if you choose to bike instead of walk, you are right along the water so there is always a nice breeze.
