We arrived with a tour to see the Caves. It was about 1:30pm and our guide called ahead on this blustery, cold rainy day. We were told the inside dining room was full and we'd have to eat outside, which would have been terrific on...More
We were herded in for fish chowder. Local flavor but not interesting choice for our lunch received can of pop and 2 cookies. Liked the experience of local flavor but not anything else. Small cramped diner.

The caves are a beautiful site from the deck or up close. But get here during low tide. Mostly sea food of course but burgers. Don't let the flies bother you. Food looks good and others have said so. Too early for food for us.
Our taxi cab driver brought us here for lunch after a tour with a promise of the world's best chowder. As promised, the chowder was delicious. However the lobster roll was very skimpy and not worth the money
After Thanksgiving, the Caves restaurant is open only when cruises dock in the Saint John harbour. If definitely closes for the season early November (when cruises season ends as well). It re-opens early May.
