We ordered the fish (greasy), and the lobster roll. If this was the first time ever eating a lobster roll, we would never order one again. What a waste of money!!!

Best lobster roll and sweet potato fries ever, even the bread was locally sourced. Partner enjoyed the Buddha bowl. Excellent German chocolate cake to finish. Try the PPE drink- innovative and tasty! Despite being busy the service was fast, informative and super friendly. Five stars...all the way😊More

We went here on the recommendation of our B&B host, and we are glad we did. Even though this was on a weekday in late September, we still had to wait close to 30 minutes to get an outside table. This was our first restaurant...stop in a 10-day tour through the maritimes, and what we did not realize at the time was these would be the best lobster rolls we would encounter. Why? The rolls were different. So was the sauce/remoulade they put on them. I can't define it better than that, but if you have the chance to eat here, i recommend you visit and decide for yourself. Outside atmosphere was nice with with fishing boats docked (or should I say grounded at low tide) right outside. Service was friendly, timely and capable. If we had one place from our trip to have another lobster roll, this would be it.More

Our favourite place when we roll in. Patio has a great feel and view. Staff friendly and efficient. The Food as usual, Top Notch. Perfect place to relax with a pint after a long day.

We stopped for lunch, on our recent tour of the east coast, and couldn’t have enjoyed more. Owners and staff went over and above to make visit perfect. Seafood chowder was the best I had, the whole trip.

Went for dinner on a Tuesday night and had to wait 5-10 mins for a seat on the patio. Dill pickle Cesars were delicious with a deep fried dill pickle as garnish. I had the deep fried cob of corn to start and it was...easily the best cob of corn I have ever had and I grow 2 acres of sweet corn every year. It was my first lobster roll ever and I found it quite good, and my Atlantic Canadian friends said it was the best around. Had it with the salad which was a great choice. Our waitress seemed cranky but owned up to it and apologized as she was short on sleep with young kids at home, she was really good though and well deserved of a generous tip.More

We stopped for lunch at the Tipsy Tails on NB day and had a fantastic meal. The service was quick, and the food was excellent. Prices were very reasonable as well. We enjoyed the restaurant and found the staff very friendly! We will definitely go...back next time we are in the area!More

Saturday night in Alma... Get a reservation for the patio. Extensive craft beer menu with Holy Whale, Tire Shack, CAVOK. Elevated ingredients. Not your typical bar food. Duck confit tacos with roasted nectarines. We had: Pork tacos with roasted pineapple. Nacho Daddy Burger - make...no mistake this is not your typical burger. Topped with a few Doritos! How often do you have a burger and not add ketchup?!? Go for the extra Bougie Fries. You won't be disappointed! The combination of parmagiano reggiano and garlic aioli is fantastic! The bread pudding served with warm caramel sauce was a perfect ending. Jade is a local legend with personality to spare! Her local knowledge and ability to read a crowd was apparent. Serving dessert with 2 glasses of ice water. Genius. Make time to enjoy Alma and park your butt at Tipsys!More

If you use the back entry there is a patio (where you want to be anyway) where you can tie your dog to the other side of a short fence. I don't know about inside the restaurant, but the back side had a number of dogs on the... More
