This is such a nice place to grab an ice cream and sit by the sea and let your troubles go away. Customer service was amazing and the ice cream was good too.

We waited awhile to be noticed by a waitress we waited for our tartar sauce and we waited, asked another server for our bill then went inside for our bill! I don't know where the servers were but they weren't around. Food was ok but...not 30 dollars worth! Over priced for what it is - --- aimed for one time tourists. Not sure if customers return with 6 other restos next door. I heard the stuffed chicken was absolutely phenomenal but took forever to come out. But worth it she said. I'll go to another spot next time.More

Great view, extremely friendly staff. We got the fried clam and chowder, chunky goodness! Would recommend - ate here after sea kayaking!

Wanted a quick snack for lunch. You order at the take out counter and you sit at the patio tables. Mostly a few fried items, but very tasty and satisfying.

​Lots of good seafood options in the menu given the location of the place. Enjoyed the seafood platter, clam chowder, and lobster roll served in reasonable portions. The college-age staff who took our orders was friendly and patient but the middle-aged lady who served our...meals was grumpy and was screaming her delivery as she did not know which table to serve them. Outdoor dining area is scenic with the view of the water but infested with some really pesky flies. Better to just take your food somewhere.More

We stopped in today and wanted just ice cream cones. It is a weird setup for ordering seafood, you order inside at the ice cream counter. I noticed they advertised "world famous" seafood chowder. Well, being from the Maritimes, I know seafood chowder. So we...ordered ice cream and a bowl of chowder to go... Wow. Almost $20 for 2 small ice cream cones and a cup of chowder, not a bowl, when I got home and opened the bag. Very small portion. And it took over 15 minutes to just get a chowder to go. Very slow. Brought it home to have with BBQ steaks. What a disappointment. Lots of seafood in it, I will admit, but no broth to speak of and they supplied packets of salt and pepper with it and a small tiny bun. I know why they put in s&p. The chowder had no taste. Bland as hospital food. I give this place a thumbs down.More

We had lunch at the Wharfside Patio between a driving excursion and sea kayaking. We had basic burgers and fries which were great, fast and affordable. Their ice cream selections were excellent too. They have a small patio to dine there or food to go.

For a place that advertises the best seafood in Alma" they fell very short of the mark. Out of the lobster rolls, seafood chowder, fish and chips and poutines we had, the best part of the meal was the gravy for the poutine. I'm sure...there are better restaurants in the area that are a lot cheaperMore

The food wasn't anything special and we waited in line to pay for almost 20 minutes. They were busy but also disorganized. When it was finally our turn to pay, they had combined the bill in error so we waited longer for the separate bills....Highlight: Our server ate a french fry off a plate that was in the window in plain view.More

Wharfside is the patio area attached to the Parkland Inn. We finished a full day hiking and the weather was amazing, so we decided to eat on the patio. The "Tides" is the formal sit down at the Inn, so we were expecting a great...meal in a great environment. Well... don't bother! I wish we hadn't! After waiting for a table on the patio, I discarded the garbage left behind by the previous occupants. We waited for a server. When she finally came I asked her if she could give the table a quick wipe down, but I think she forgot. We ordered the Club wrap, which was described as a club sandwich, but in a wrap instead of bread and with chicken, not turkey. Ok, cool - sounds good - It was one chicken finger in a wrap with some bacon, wilted lettuce and tomato. I mean the chicken wrap at Mcdonald's puts this to shame. Hubby ordered the scallop basket and was happy. My daughter and I asked the waitress if the $26 seafood platter was big enough to split in 2. She rhymed off the contents and assured it would be plenty. Ummmmm no. 1 piece of over-battered under cooked fish, 1 scallop, a handful of fried clams and a few shrimp that were split in 2 before deep frying to make it look like more. I was livid. To be fair, the waitress was able to comp 1 meal (despite being disappointed with 2/3 of them) and she gave us 2 chicken fingers and 3 scallops in a to-go bag. This was a huge disappointment and we will not go back.More
