Four of us had dinner last night and, not sure what was going on but it was a weird evening. Everyone's potatoes were not
Cooked. The veggie situation was hard to understand as every meal on the entree menu had the same veggies and all tables were reserved for the 6 pm sitting. we waited for over an hour and a half to eat and then had to rush because we had a show at 8. Two of us had the cod fish, and it was not fresh and was awful overall. The service was disorganized, but our server Maggie was lovely and kept apologizing. She did not charge us for our drinks, but on reflection we should not have paid even for the food. The view is stunning and the blueberry mojitos were delicious.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us your comments. And thanks for visiting our Bonne Bay Inn Blue Ocean Dining Room. Sorry you were disappointed. Please drop in and see us again. We are a small Inn which caters to our guests and the public for evening dining. Our dining experience encourages an evening that includes an appetizer, then a main, and a dessert. We have a delicious, Inn style menu created to feature local cuisine with wonderful flavors. Your evening with us was during our annual Writers at Woody Point Festival, which is a unique week in the sense that folks are often on a tight schedule to get from show to show and we do our best to accommodate everyone in a timely matter, without rushing the dining experience. As a result we required reservations and informed people what time they should reserve for in order to get to their events, and to truly enjoy their dining experience with us. That doesn't always happen, even with the best of preparation, some folks arrive late, some without reservations, etc. so we are very prepared for the week with extra staff, knowing that it is a very busy week and we want to provide great service, great food, in a great atmosphere. I am proud of the staff during the week. We served close to 400 people over the week to wonderful comments on the food, the staff, the atmosphere. So, as mentioned earlier, please visit us again!

Thanks for providing your comments. Glad you enjoyed the Inn. This is our first year for full evening dining. We are in our third season of business with the Bonne Bay Inn. The pub is also a cozy place to enjoy a quiet drink with friends. Hope to see you again!

We ate at the Blue Ocean Dining Room during our stay at Woody Point. Meal is a fine dining experience, certainly not what you might expect in a small town at a National Park. The Moose Samosas were AWESOME!! Would definitely eat there again.

We read a few of the previous recommendations and decided to try it. We were not disappointed. The seafood pie, moose samosas and cod dinner were fantastic. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery of Bonne Bay and watched while the minke whales passed by.

Thanks for your review and your comments. Happy to hear you enjoyed your dining experience. The minke whales are certainly a fun added bonus! The view from the Blue Ocean Dining Room allows for great whale watching!

Love this place - low lighting, quiet tone, but very friendly and welcoming. Murdoch, the mixologist has created quite a few drinks from local berries. The selection of wine, beers, and other liquors is large and varied. This year the tapas seem to match the menu of appetizers from the Blue Ocean Dining Room.

Thanks for your comments. You are correct in that from the pub, you can enjoy the appetizers from our main menu. In the previous couple of years, we only offered tapas as our food offering. The new menu has been getting great reviews!
See you again soon!
