Sit and enjoy Saint John river

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.

I have always been intrigued by the LIghthouse and finally had the chance to go this summer. The food service was quick and tasty but the view is what makes it. To sit that close to the river on a beautiful summer day in Fredericton was so enjoyable!

I can't give them a terrible review because I never was able to go. My travel partner and I went on a Thursday in August around noon. Tourismfredericton.ca says to go to their Facebook page for up to date hours. There is no update for the day we went. They were closed. Weather was cloudy but it was not overly... More

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.

When out for a walk along the Saint John River and the downtown core, the lighthouse is always a stop point but with the addition of a lunch menu, it's now the perfect patio to stop a while for a light bit of lunch and cool drink. There's lots of ice cream for the kids ... big kids too. The... More

The kids really enjoyed the lighthouse. You don't just run up the stairs and get to the top. On each landing there are very large wooden puzzles to be put together, all with nautical themes. 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
