“Wonderfull place to dine and only minutes away!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

The Amherst Shore Country Inn is situated a short drive from where I live. It is not a restaurant that you can just drop in to. You must always have a reservation as you will be asked to choose your meal out of 2 choices for main course and dessert. Last night all four of us had the scallops as main course and lemon rhubarb cake as dessert. You may come early and have cocktail time in the front living area of the Inn, but last night we just arrived in time for dinner. When eating here you are always given a freshly cooked loaf of bread as I starter closely followed by a delicious homemade soup, last night was mushroom. Next there was a wonderfully fresh salad and then main course. The staff who are from this area were very attentive to all our needs, soft music was playing in the background and it was altogether a lovely evening. Oh yes, the dessert was absolutely scrumptious.
This Inn is also a B&B, rents cabins, and also has several cottages on |Baie Vert that it rents out in the summer months. It is a little sister to the bigger Blomidon Inn in Wolfville Nova Scotia. They are both run by the same family who have been Innkeepers in Nova Scotia at least 35 years but possibly longer so they know how to make you comfortable. You will not regret taking the time to make a reservation to eat at the Amherst Shore Country Inn. Bar scene is not applicable and as far as I know there is no place outside for eating. This is a fine dining establishment.

“Most enjoyable experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

Located on the Northumberland Strait this Inn run by a local family provides very good evening meals (by reservation only) in a scenic location. We have dined there every year when we are in the area and have never been disappointed. The rooms are fairly small but quite comfortable while the owners are very genial and helpful.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this Inn for a very enjoyable meal and also for a pleasant escape for a few days.

“Still Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

We visited Amherst Shore Inn two years ago and loved it. We recently returned and I'm happy to report it is still outstanding. Our room was perfect and the food was incredible. Thank you Mary and Rob. If you're in the area treat yourself and book a visit.

“Awesome Service & Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Rob & Mary always make our dining experience decadent!! We've attended their elaborate wine pairing dinners as well as come out for special occasions and we've always been more than happy with the service and the food. Absolutely awesome! The menu is limited and you must pre-order when you make your reservation but the options are decadent and well worth the drive. Great selection of wines as well.

“restaurant excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Have eaten here a few timed over the years and the food has always been consistently of high quality. The menu is pre-set and pre-ordered so there is no choice - but the quality of food yu get is out of this world. They also grow a lot of their food right on the property and you can even walk around their gardens. They also have a little area where they sell a few items from local vendors - beautiful antique furniture - great place to view treasures while you are enjoying your meal.
