If you happen to be going on a road trip along the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick, Canada, then the chances are you will possibly want to stop off for a bite to eat along the way.
Starting in Moncton and ending in Saint John, you will pass by many top eateries along that way, so I hope you’re geared up for a food adventure.
Atlantic Canada offers some of the finest selection and variation of fresh seafood which is on offer all along the Bay of Fundy.
Be sure not to miss out on some of these tasty dishes along the route. And if you would like to find out more information about doing a road trip across New Brunswick, please feel free to check out my travel guide.
Here is a selection of some of my top recommendations for places to eat along the Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick, Canada.
Moncton – enjoy dinner at the Tide & Boar Gastropub
In Moncton, I would highly recommend the Tide & Boar Gastropub as a spot to eat.
If you want to try a local specialty, go for the signature dish of boar poutine, which had an incredible pulled wild boar with an excellent thick gravy over chunky chips and curd cheese. I’ve never had poutine quite like it.
Be sure to complete the experience with a round of oysters and pint of incredible craft beer which you will find a selection of on tap. This is a great spot to start your food adventure off in New Brunswick.
And before you hit the road in the morning and leave Moncton, be sure to grab a flat white at DUO Café. A perfect way to start your day.
Lobster lunch at Broadleaf Ranch
You can’t visit Atlantic Canada or New Brunswick without trying the classic lobster lunch.
If you plan on stopping off at Hopewell Rocks, you will probably drive past the Broadleaf Ranch which has a restaurant on site.
They do a very hearty lobster portion with a wide selection of garlic butter, slaw, salad and mashed potato.
If you’re going to try the lobster lunch, then this is the spot for sure.
They also do a good lobster chowder and the portion is plenty to keep you going for a late-night at Hopewell Rocks.
The last restaurant until Alma – Red Roof
Just like the sign says outside the Red Roof restaurant, this is your last chance to grab a bite to eat until you reach Alma.
A perfect spot for your first taste of North American road trip diner food. Bring your flask in as well to fill it up with coffee for the journey ahead.
Cape Enrage – lobster poutine at Cape House Restaurant
Another Canadian classic blended with a local Atlantic twist. If you’re heading to Cape Enrage, be sure to check out the Cape House Restaurant which offers stunning views and a wonderful lunch menu.
I went for the lobster poutine which comes with white gravy and the combination worked well. Worth the try if you’re passing the area.
Alma – lobster roll at the Tipsy Tails
Once you’ve reached Alma, be sure to check out the Tipsy Tails (love the name!). They do an incredible lobster roll and sweet potato fries combo that works rather well.
On this road trip, I had my fair share of lobster roll lunches, and the Tipsy Tails comes out as the winner of all the places I had this meal.
Maybe it’s because the lobster is freshly caught and purchased in Alma from Collins Lobster Shop just around the corner. (Be sure to pop in if you want to learn more about how a lobster operation runs, they’re open for visitors.)
If you feel like sticking around in the area for a bit longer, they might have live music going on at the Tipsy Tails in the evening – it’s the place to be in town.
Also, a shout out to the Holy Whale Brewing Co. which is just down the road if you fancy grabbing a craft beer in Alma. It’s a fun setting as the location used to be a church, and the beer is good too.
Lastly, be sure to grab a sticky bun at Kelly’s Bake Shop in the morning for breakfast before continuing your journey.
St. Martins – The Caves Restaurant’s world-famous chowder
The world-famous seafood chowder is served at The Caves Restaurant in St. Martins.
The restaurant offers incredible views of the caves, and you can have a whole bowl of the good stuff here.
Your chowder order will come with a biscuit (more like a scone than something you would dip in your tea) and a packet of butter to enjoy.
This is a must stop on your road trip adventure across the Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick.
St. Martins – Fiori’s Restaurant for fish taco
Another spot in St. Martins is a Mexican-style Fiori’s Restaurant, which serves up fish tacos and fresh lime, salsa and rice.
You can start to see a seafood trend coming on here in New Brunswick, hey! Eat it when it’s fresh!
St. George – Ossie’s Lunch
Ossie’s Lunch is a popular restaurant and has been around since 1957 along the Bay of Fundy road trip route. You simply have to stop off here.
It’s located between Saint John and St. Andrews in St. George, and it’s a perfect place to get lunch along the way.
Order up the large seafood platter which comes with deep-fried clams, scallops, fish pieces, shrimps and a side of slaw and tartar sauce. It’s a beast of a feast for sure.
Don’t forget to bring a friend along as well as it’s a hearty portion to tackle on your own but well worth the experience.
Lobster croissant at Kingsbrae Garden’s café
If you’re looking for a fun lunch spot with a wonderful peaceful outdoor setting in St. Andrews, then be sure to check out the Garden Café at Kingsbrae Garden.
The café is located on the grounds and serves an incredible lobster croissant lunch which is a perfect fusion food dish that is full of flavour. I really enjoyed it.
It was so good that I was tempted to order another one! The variations of lobster dishes you can enjoy in Atlantic Canada just keeps on growing and this one was a winner for sure!
St. Andrews – The Red Herring Pub
The Red Herring Pub is a great location to grab a beer by the harbour front with a lovely food menu selection to choose from.
It’s also a fun place to hang out in the evening with live maritime music performances by local bands. It’s the go-to hangout spot in St. Andrews.
Saint John – Saint John Ale House
Saint John is a must-stop destination along your Bay of Fundy road trip route. Feel free to check out my unique guide to the city and be sure to spend some time here.
One spot that can’t be missed is the Saint John Ale House which has a fine selection of craft beers on tap. Be sure to try a selection of them in the form of a flight.
One dish here that stood out to me was the maple syrup bacon-wrapped grilled clams. It’s a perfect snack to enjoy with a tasty craft beer created at the Moosehead Breweries in the Saint John area.
You can visit this location as part of the Uncorked Tours’ brewery tour of the city so be sure to check it out when you want to explore Saint John.
A bonus New Brunswick snack you have to try – lobster flavoured potato chips
You simply have to try this classic New Brunswick snack to top off your trip to the province.
Don’t miss out on the local favourite, lobster potato chips. Made in an old-fashioned kettle-cooked style to perfection, they’re a real tasty treat and enjoyed plenty by the locals.
Funny enough, I found that the potato chips didn’t taste too much like lobster. I was expecting a stronger lobster taste, but they were still delightful and full of flavour. But I’ll let you be the judge on this.
Grab a bag on your next trip and let me know what you think.
