Stopped by for a quick cup of clam chowder. It was delicious. Seemed like the place the locals ate which is always a good sign. Turned out to be true.

Enjoy dinning with a fabulous view of bay of Fundy. The menus features seafood as well as other items. We had steamers, lobster and haddock. Everything was delicious.

Had a nice dinner on the patio enjoying the view. Great fish sandwich which they call a wrap but its really a bun.

Even if the food here wasn't delicious, which it is, this would be a great place to go just to watch for the whales while you're eating. We arrived during lunchtime and most of the window tables were taken. A group was just leaving one of the tables in the bar area so we asked the hostess if we could... More

Always my go-to place for lobster dinner in the area. Unless you cook them on board your own boat, you're not going to get them any more fresh. I went with the stuffed this lobster this time which was a fun change (Thanksgiving-like stuffing but with big chunks of all sorts of seafood piled on the underside of the tail... More
