Very good food, great prices for seafood! We had a lobster brioche bun with side salad and the deep fried scallop poor boy sandwich. Both very tasty. Our server, Shannon, was very friendly and accommodating. We were only there at lunch, I’m sure their dinner...menu is great as well.More

We ordered lobster pasta and Alfredo with scallops. Everything was absolutely delicious and the staff were great. Wish we could go back tomorrow!

The red thai curry seafood chowder was absolutely delicious. An original flavour and large pieces of fresh seafood - lobster, scallops, salmon, haddock (or other white fish). Worth the (very high) price!

Interesting menu. Came back twice once for supper and once for lunch. Quality ingredients. Nothing frozen and off a food truck. People complaining about price need to appreciate that fact as well as the fact this is small town New Brunswick. Korean ramen pictured

A very refreshing change from all the fried stuff in every other restaurant. Ate there twice. Excellent Italian food. Steak salad dish was good, chicken parm excellent and the pasta with garlic, oil & parmesan was perfect. Pasta with Italian sausage was spicier than I...care for but if you like spicy you'll love this dish. Staff was excellent. By far this is the best restaurant in Alma.More

We had been told this was a great restaurant. There were only a few people inside for dinner as it was the end of the season. The prices for lobster and chowder were so high! We have been traveling along the sea coast of CT,...MASS and ME as well as a night at the fabulous Rossmount Inn near St Andrew by the sea. Nothing anywhere near the prices here….plus we were served pasta in a seriously chipped bowl. And we tried three tables that were all wobbly. And the music was blaring! The previous night we had a 7 course meal prepared by a world renowned chef for $85 each. The lobster chowder here was $42!! The pasta was excellent, I must admit. And the scallops were also good. But the prices were ridiculous for the place it was and the season. It was just about te only thing open so we were stuck.More

Hungry after a long day ending in our 1st visit to Alma I was anxious to find a restaurant that would please my friends. More than pleased we all delighted! Our appetite was wet with a starter of bacon wrapped scallop, delicious. My brother polished...off an ample plate of pasta alla Puttanesca, seasoned to perfection. His wife and I polished our plates too of trout served with mash potatoes and fresh veggies. The fish was succulent. Everything hot, tasty and served with flare. Service was personable in a casual artsy atmosphere. They put a lot of love in what they do. It made for a memorable visit to Alma. Thank you Octopus Garden!More

We popped in for a late lunch so the restaurant was very quiet. We enjoyed the soup of the day (delicious tomato) and I had the burrito bowl. So fresh, tasty and colorful. I loved the flavor combination, especially the cilantro lime dressing. On our...way out the door we purchased a couple of Damn Good Cookies. They were damn good!More
