Acceptable - wish I could rank it higher

I wish I could give a higher rating to this place because it was a very pleasant, very 'nautical' setting with big windows overlooking the river/bay to the (few) lights of Maine two miles away. Even more, the young man who waited on us was thoroughly delightful to talk with. The restaurant... read more

Spent a week in St. Andrews last summer and this was our favorite. Unmissable from it's colorful gabled façade - but the real find is the tree covered deck in back, friendly, relaxed service and fresh dishes at reasonable prices. The fish chowder was full of fish ..not potatoes! The salads were large, colorful and crisp and desserts all hand... More

This restaurant was terrific. Great food, an amazing patio out back over the water. Good staff. The menu has a lot of interesting local information on it. And of course, there is a giant lobster to get your picture taken with!! :)

One of my favorites in St. Andrews. The Gables has a very 'homey' feel to it. the outdoor patio on the water makes for an enhanced dining experience. Been there multiple times on visits to St. Andrews. Biggest problem is that this establishment is only open during the summer/tourist season.

This restaurant has character, good food,reasonable prices and a lovely waterfront ambience. It is an excellent dining destination innSt.mAndrews By-the-Sea in New Brunswick Canada. Right on the Main Street amidst the shops on the Waterfront. Even stropping for a glass of wine is terrific.

We stopped in here for an early dinner after our whale watching tour. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the setting was quite lovely on the deck overlooking the water. I had the Lobster Club with french fries and I highly recommend it! The staff were friendly and service was good. We would return here in the future.

We read mixed reviews for this restaurant, but thought it looked interesting. The deck is wonderful in great weather. The food was good, but not great. The service was friendly but a bit slow. At the end of the meal, two of our party of five commented that the coffee that they wanted with the meal hadn't been served.
