“Consistently good with *great* desserts”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

The menu is filled with delectable seafood (though somewhat predictable), and the food is consistently good. Portions are generous. Servers are very friendly to all and efficient. Wish they'd put something innovative on the menu though. Same old....

“Lots of cars in parking lot - and they were right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2009

Over 35 years of travel, one thing I've found is a very good sign is lots of cars in the parking lot of a restaurant. That's what my wife and I encountered as we were driving north toward Digby. There, in the tiny town of Claire, were 20-25 cars in the parking lot of Around the Bend. It was lunch time and we decided to give Around the Bend a try. We found the best clam chowder I'd tasted in Maine, Massachusetts or Nova Scotia, the best bargain (less than $10) of a full scallop lunch, very friendly service and in general, what I'd call a real find.

The is not a super fancy place. It is a comfortable, friendly local cafe with superb food and modest prices. If you find yourself on Highway 1, driving north or south, and you're hungry, I'd strongly recommend Around the Bend as THE place to stop between Digby and Yarmouth.
