Excellent service and food! You can get everything from standard pub food to fine dining here. I have never had a meal that I didn't like. The prices are reasonable as well. We always stop here when we are in Amherst.

Duncan's is my choice for seafood entrees and cold draft beer. They have a good variety of foods and the best Seafood Chowder in the Province. A friendly staff and occasional music entertainment make Duncan's a great place to frequent.

Yet another fine restaurant disguised as a pub. Traveling from Halifax, we took the advise of Tripadviser's commentary when searching for an evening meal, although pub food access can perhaps be last resort feeding. But then there's this place... Comfortable seating and oversized tables not normally seen in a pub, let alone a restaurant. The bar looked like a bar... More
