We noticed that some restaurants had already been closed for the season, and were a little worried that our trip was too late in October. Nothing to fear. Several restaurants were still open, two of which were year-around spots. The Black Rock Bistro, on the...More

Nice dining room. Friendly staff. Eclectic menu. Good wine list. Great food. Definitely something different than we expected to find in Parrsboro. They also have a separate wine bar which we would sample next time we stay in the area.
