Historic Eating Place in St. Stephen

Tasty home-cooked food with generous portions and friendly wait staff. Always a busy place. Very reasonably priced. Meals always hot and generous. Lots of variety. Very good seafood. We eat here often.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Carman's. Great staff, nice atmosphere and yummy food. We ordered the seafood platter to share and was pleasantly surprised to see the food wasn't heavily battered. It had a light coating on it but not greasy. Homemade tartar sauce was good too and they gave us lots. Will go back if we are ever... More

Our family of four stopped in for supper. My husband ordered the hot roast beef in the senior size and was disappointed that he did not order off of the regular menu. We all were more than pleased with our meals and the service was excellent. It's down home cooking at its finest.

Had breakfast several times here and never been disappointed. Home fries with onions are especially tasty. Will definitely be back!

We were on vacation and a local suggested this place. We both had the Fish and Chips. It was just average and served with frozen fries. Seemed to be a restaurant that the locals frequent but I would not go out of my way to visit. Good - just not special.

Simple food with a great taste. Easily accessible from the B&B. A casual-dress diner and a favorite of the locals.

This is what you expect in small town NB. I ordered the turkey dinner. Two large scoops of potatoes, lots of dark and white meat, more stuffing than I could eat, all drizzled with gravy. The iceberg lettuce side salad and frozen veggies tasted like what my mom used to make growing up. Not fancy, not private, but what I... More

We have driven by this restaurant many, many times and really never even noticed it. Tonight, though, we were looking to eat dinner and saw all the cars parked and thought it must be good. We were pleased to see an open booth with an old school table top juke box. very cool. A waitress arrived within a minute with... More
