The Inn has one of the best views, the best restaurants, and some of the best staff around. Definitely worth a visit, plus they have kayak and boat tours running all season.

I have written about this restaurant in the past. We went again on their last night of this season and I thought I’d do an update. I can say that the service and food continues to be of top quality. We had calamari appetizer with...fish and chips entree which continues to be among the best anywhere. The ever erudite, efficient and friendly James keeps everything running smoothly. I’m looking forward to the 2023 season and highly recommend Chucky’s to anyone visiting the Eastport peninsula first time.More

We were staying at the hotel and logically we went there for dinner. What a great surprise and what a good experience. We took 2 lobsters which were perfectly cooked. Great food and great service. Unfortunately we stayed there only one night…

We have travelled in newfoundland for years but only just came across this Inn. It is run by a fantastic couple who couldn't be more professional and helpful and their team who are equally capable and admirable. And of course it is a truly beautiful...spot, aptly named! Well executed local food, good rooms and overall a great find. Highly recommend.More

Wow! What a pleasant surprise! Happy Adventure turns out to be a whole little town on it’s own bay and the Inn sits above it with a beautiful view of the bay, the houses, boats and Tera Nova National Park in the background. All four...rooms have balconies that fully enjoy the complete vista the rooms are large and comfortable. James and his team have paid great attention to detail and are a wealth of information for hikes and other activities in the area. The highlight of the Inn, however, might well be the restaurant. Do not fail to make your reservation to dine there, as it is popular with locals and visitors alike. If you plan to stay anywhere near Terra Nova Park, this is the place!More

We stayed 1 night this week and we were very impressed. The inn is hard to find but worth the effort. Our room had a lovely deck overlooking the small town and harbor. The room was very nice and well kept. We had dinner and...it was delicious. The restaurant was crowded but service was great. Our breakfast, included in the room rate, and it was cooked to order. We highly recommend.More

Hi Eric D, Chucky's restaurant is a small seaside restaurant with limited seating. We highly recommend reserving ahead of time as we book out very quickly. It is hard to know the exact nature of your experience from your review but I apologize if you...More

We were staying at the inn and had dinner with them too. The bar is great with NL gins which we enjoyed. Our dishes were fabulous (massive seafood platter and moose steak). The ganache chocolate cake for dessert was divine. And service was impeccable. Breakfast...the next morning was equally good - choose the ham as it’s thick cut and cooked with maple, just deliciousMore

3 years running still the best darn fish’n’chips on the island. Do NOT pass up the opportunity to eat here. Even the coleslaw is amazing. Delightfully acidic to cut through the meal. Awesome selection of beer too btw.

Went here for a celebratory dinner at the end of a work trip in the area. Helpful staff made good recommendations. The view complemented the meal of seafood and game. Strong Newfoundland component to the menu and the "standard items" have innovative presentation and chef's...personal style. Hope to come back here both for the restaurant and a stay on future trips. If the moose steak became known in Argentina it would trigger a major immigration to Newfoundland!More

We had a meal last year which was great and decided to stay 2 days on July 9th-10th this year. We had the inn to ourselves and dining room. With all the COVID 19 restrictions in the world, this place should be packed for the...whole summer in regular times We were treated like royalty and food was amazing. We had a kayak guided tour when we arrived and walked to sandy cove and back on the 2nd day. We thank all the staff that made our anniversary such a special occasion and hope to be back soonMore

A stop here is part of each year's travel plans. You just can't beat Chucky's for the best of NL seafood presentations .We enjoyed calamari, cod and scallops as entrees. And we overnighted at one of the available suites, Powell's Cove, and took in as...many of Brenda's new paintings as we could spot on display. No zodiac or kayak this year but we hear Chucky's got a new boat on the way!More

Fabulous seafood and moose burgers and the best sesame dressing for the garden salad. Sadly, because of covid restrictions we had to settle for takeaway. We'd love to return since the dining room looked lovely.
