Freshly baked bread. Delicious mushroom soup, salad with local fresh beets and greens, salmon, chicken cordon bleu and blueberry flan. Breakfast started with apple cinnamon scones (best scones we've ever had). Blueberry pancakes with fruits and bacon

The Amherst Shore Country Inn offers two entrees each evening and you are called to make your choice a day or so before your reservation. The evening begins with an aperitif... More

Food is always first rate here a bit pricey for some but you get what you pay for beautiful view of the bay from the dining room and they use plenty of locally grown items in their menu Highly recommended especially for a "special night out"

Four course GOURMET dinners served at an additional price, offering delicious choices, each so tantalizing it is difficult to come to a decision!! There are no bad choices😀! We have had many meals here, and all dinners and breakfasts prepared by Rob are outstanding! Mary, Rob and their children run a terrific family run restaurant!! Many thanks!!

All items were well presented and delicious. Choices were made via telephone a day or two ahead of the dinner. This was a 5-star dinner in every... More

Rob and Mary have worked very hard to create and deliver the important details that make this Inn and Restaurant clean, relaxing, tasteful, delicious and memorable. We stayed in one of their chalet's and were able to walk on the beautiful beach that day. The evening meal was outstanding.
