We ate at this restaurant two nights in a row when we stayed in Parrsboro! It's a great spot to watch the changing of the tides, while taking in a good meal- great fresh fish! The wait staff made the experience such a great memory- such a fun, local hang out! It was busy both nights we were there. And... More

This place is located at the end of Pier road where the wharf is located. Great view of the lighthouse and the Bay of Fundy, especially at low tide where you will witness the fishing boats sitting on the sand and the channel they use to get out to fish just a small trickle of water. The restaurant though small... More

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
