Description: Winner of Hall of Fame Restaurant! Harp Music on Sunday & Wednesday evenings! 7 to 9 pm Seaside Restaurant is located in the most scenic part of GROS MORNE NATIONAL PARK, in the small fishing village of Trout River (Route 431), on the beachfront overlooking the ocean with its spectacular sunsets & a kilometer of boardwalk... less than a 10 minute drive from the Tablelands Exhibit. Enjoy the best of Newfoundland cuisine and enjoy beautiful sunsets over the water. After a hike up the Tableland Mountains, or a boat tour up Trout River Pond, this is a great place to come and relax with some real cultural delicacies and picturesque view. Great Food, Great Wine & Great Views of the Ocean!

“Great dining in Newfoundland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Tasty seafood, great location and very friendly service, I would come back. It helps that it is near Gros Morne National Park, all that hiking makes one hungry.

“great view, service and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

delightful find at the end for the road. Well worth the drive!

Tried the fish chowder, full of local catch, topped it off with a warmed slice of partridege pie and ice cream.

To cap off my visit to Trout River, I had a chowder, a home baked roll, and a Black Horse lager at the Seaside Restaurant. Thank-you for being there so I could sit contently looking out the window,while eating a lovely mea,l and soaking in the view.

“THE seafood restaurant in Trout River”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Prize winning and worth the trip, the Seaside is a perfect part of a day in and around the Tablelands of Gros Morne National Park. More than an hour's drive from Rocky Harbour, the small seaside town has a beach, a boardwalk, a museum, an interpretation center, an historic home, a working wharf, and this restaurant. All the seafood is good. We've had cod, caplin, halibut, haddock, scallops, crab and more over the years. We've eaten before and after hikes and boat trips. And it has always been good. Restaurants are basic but pleasant, and coffee is OK. Eat upstairs if you can, and enjoy the harbour view (sun comes in your eyes in late afternoon and early evening).
