Stumbled upon this place while walking around Fredericton and decided to stop for a drink on the patio. It is a great spot which fantastic views over the river. Nice choice of beers. Recommended.

We had to accept that the overall view was ruined the by construction site nearby and were content to take just a few pictures from afar. However, it is one of the best looking lighthouses in the Maritimes and in a year or so, I am sure the whole place will look great.

We were very impressed with the prompt service and inventive offerings like Barbecue Nachos with Feta and Mac and Cheese.
A very well run restaurant.

Climb to the top of the light house and get a panoramic view of the waterfront and downtown Fredericton. Has a great Mac n’ Cheese Shack at the location as well.

When heading up to the top of the light house there are pictures of the other lights houses in the area and different events that have happened locally through history.

While in Fredericton we stopped at the Lighthouse along the river. This is not a real lighthouse but a stop that sells ice cream and mac and cheese. You can go up the lighthouse for a fee. There are good views of the river. Washrooms available on site.

This is really more like a little information center with an ice cream parlor in it. The walls on the way up are painted to depict some of the local history. There are a few tables outside and the view of the river is very nice.

A nice climb to the top of the lighthouse wth an incredible view of the St. John River. We also enjoyed the Garrison tour and the walking tour that begins at the City Hall. Well done!

The lighthouse is not a real lighthouse and is not very interesting. They have a mac and cheese restaurant as well as ice cream to eat. They charge to climb the stairs as well. Not worth the visit.
