Dropped in for lunch and treated to excellent service and very good seafood chowder loaded with lobster, scallops, and fish. Camping in Five Islands area and our trip into town was capped off by a wonderful lunch.

Thank you for stopping in for lunch at BlackRock Bistro. The seafood chowder is one of our specialties made with Bay of Fundy lobster, scallops and haddock.

We really enjoyed a great meal at the bistro. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. It is a hot spot in town as we spent a couple of hours there and it remained full the whole time.

Interesting wine flight- 2 oz samples of any 3 wines- a great start. The mussels prepared with beer and bacon were a delightful treat. Main course of pork loin included a very tasty sauce, with baby beets, both red and white and mashed potato.
