While you eat some of the best fish and chips around you get to enjoy the beach view as this is where it is located...on the beach. Friendly staff, EXCELLENT food, great atmosphere. Also a wonderful place to host a party. In the summer eat there weekly or more. Also licensed.

As we travelled the east coast we would stop and many locations that advertised good seafood chowder. I would say this tied for first place with a place in alma New Brunswick. It had that fresh seafood flavour and not the standard creamy based chowder. The bonus prize was exploring the ocean floor there and watching the tide come in... More

We went with friends from England and three of us had Fish and Chips and my wife had the seafood chowder with a Caesars salad. The fish was very fresh with a light thin batter. The fries were not good. I am sure they were from a bag of frozen fries. The seafood chowder had way to much potato compared... More

great staff and friendly service with a second to none view of the highest tides in the world! Seats large parties and has a lovely nautical theme as well as being licensed so you can enjoy a nice glass of wine while waiting for the change of tides...

Our waitress had many years of experience and served us very well. On a quiet evening, we were seated at a booth and she deftly took our order and kept us entertained with stories of her long days in the hospitality business. Our fish dinners were promptly served and included extra portions of both carrots and potatoes when we spoke... More

At the end of the road with an unobstructed view of the Bay of Fundy. Wonderful, funky beach decor. But the story is the food! Unbelievable lobster rolls, marvelous halibut bites and the best whole-belly clams imaginable. Pleasant wait staff. You feel at home no matter where you are from. Don't miss it!

A place with decent food and a great view. Our service was excellent and friendly and fast. The food was decent, and make sure to leave room for desert (homemade pies!).
