My husband and I travel a lot and each in restaurants all over North America. We are home in Newfoundland for holidays and my sister suggested we try this place. We brought our parents and friends of theirs for dinner. We were not disappointed. The food was fantastic. Everything is homemade and delicious. Each of us had a different menu... More

We went as a birthday party of 9. The service was excellent and I had the best chicken linguine EVER. The ages in our group ranged from14 to 89 and everyone raved about the food. Beautiful location, cozy dining room, excellent staff and FANTASTIC food. What more can I say? Two thumbs up from my wife and I.

I spent one night at this lovely B & B in the town of Dildo (origin of which is not what you may think!). While Dildo is a quiet little place, its a great base to tour the Baccalieu Trail, where I saw many wondrous things (icebergs, bald eagles, towering cliffs to name a few). One of the owners, Colleen,... More

Colleen and her family were welcoming and accommodating (of vegetarians) and the setting of the inn was great - we watched whales swimming all morning at breakfast. Inn By the Bay is a great place to stay!

Staying at the Inn By the Bay (18.6.15) was a highlight of our 12 day trip around Newfoundland. The food was the best I have eaten on the whole trip! I was torn between the amazing choices so decided to have appetizers instead of a main course. I started with a roasted beet salad which was great, followed by salmon... More

We stayed at Inn By The Bay last weekend, and it was more than expected. Coleen is the perfect hostess. The dinner was a pleasant surprise. Delicious fish chowder and pan fried cod. The room was very nice, clean and had all the things needed. We even had a spectacular view of the bald eagles fighting the seagulls right outside... More
