My husband's fish & chips was fine ,but my lobster roll left a lot to be desired. Very little mushy lobster with little taste---either canned or frozen. I expected more in an area that is famous for Fundy lobster. Overpriced for what we had. Alma was under a boil water advisory so we had to pay for bottled water. When... More

Went to eat here because it was the only restaurant open at 8:15 pm. The food was just okay, the prices were not bad,but not our choice of good food. There was more batter than fish on the haddock.

The waitress seemed completely unhappy to be serving us. We asked for water with our meal and she told us the local water was "under boil", so she couldn't serve it to us. We are pretty sure that she lied to us to up-sell us on the drinks. There was no signage around town to beware of the drinking water.... More

We both ordered the 1.5 lb lobster. It was tough and not very juicy or tender. Seemed either over cooked or reheated. The mashed potatoes were very dry and flavourless. looked like they were scooped out of a pail. I understand lobster is out of season in August, but for what we paid we really expected better.

For us this was the only restaurant in Alma that serves excellent food for the price. We ate dinner there 2 out of the 4 evenings we were there. First time we had lobster rolls and seafood chowder. Both were excellent. Other evening I had seared scallop dinner and my husband had a Seafood pasta dinner which was a special... More

Service wasn't great. Waitress seemed very unhappy to be serving us. Had to be asked multiple times for simple items like ketchup. Did not come back to refill drinks or ask if we would want water. I had the seafood sampler was pretty terrible, consisted of deep dried nuggets of tastelessness. If you're a restaurant in a coastal town why... More
