Have been meaning to write up my review a lot sooner than this. My husband & I took a drive down to Alma to try out the Seafood Chowder that we kept hearing about, at The Alma Boathouse. I'm not a diehard seafood fan - I've been known to eat some fish & chips and have a tuna sandwich. My... More

Recommended at our bed and breakfast...we enjoyed a lobster meal, also tried the maple salmon...and all we excellent. We were there on a week-night, and restaurant service was slow, but it was also near the end of the season, which may have been a factor. Prices were also on the expensive side.

Scallops were overcooked with the abductor muscle still attached so I had to pick that off, the coleslaw had to be cut with a steak knife so if you like mediocre food, it's ok. We had to point out a dirty fork so it would exchanged for a clean one. Hey, maybe we just happened to be there on an... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our quiet lunch at this restaurant. The lady serving us was very polite and prompt with service. We received a beautiful complimentary hot French stick to begin our meal. Of our group we had a lobster, fish and chips and the lobster roll platter. All were excellent, well presented and filling. Well worth your time if you're... More

We had a wonderful meal here. The food was good, the portions were healthy and the wait staff were competent and helpful. They know their menu choices and were happy to help you decide or explain what came with your meal. I enjoyed the small restaurant and their desserts looked incredible although I did not indulge myself. The wifi was... More

After arriving in Alma later in the evening decided to go here as this was the first place we saw. Food is well done with large portions and friendly service. Decor is a little run down but place is OK for the price.

We both had haddock and chips the fish was so fresh and the chips were hand cut. Great friendly service and a real down home feel to the place. If you are anywhere near here it is a great place to stop for a meal. Hubby had a beer and I had iced tea and the bill was under $50

We had a pretty nice meal here. Food came very quickly, and they still had a nice amount of customers even as the supper is ending. Good for a sit down meal.
