Had to come to St. Andrews for a very important birthday party. The service was excellent as well as the food. Best ceasars in town. Love coming here and always make sure the red herring is on the list of restaurants I visit. Make sure you try the lobster roll!!

I was so lucky to attend a special event ( 70th Birthday) here- great and courteous service, yummy food, and ambience was everything needed for this celebration. I have had lunch here in the summer as well- and the food is always outstanding.

Visited this spot for lunch on a lazy, late winter weekend. I had the soup and sandwich combo (minestrone and roast beef) and my partner had the bacon cheeseburger with hand cut fries. Both were delish, but boy that burger looks good. I did manage to swipe a few fries off his plate and they were awesome. Definitely would return.....gotta... More

I have never had a bad meal at the Red Herring. I eat hear once a week during the Summer and at least once or twice a month during the winter. The menu selection is varied with a daily special. I find the owner very friendly and his staff always courteous.

We enjoyed dining by the bay. The lobster roll was tasty, but the view was even better! Service was excellent.

Friends and I stumbled in here on a cool New Brunswick evening to find a convivial pub with good food, live entertainment, and friendly locals. There was good local beer on tap and the food was tasty. This was a great find for a layover night on a long drive to PEI. Recommended!

My friend was visiting from AB and we were travelling along the Fundy Coastal Drive. Since it was off-season, many businesses were closed, but we decided to have lunch at this great little place right at the wharf. Cute little place. Very modest inside. Heated in part with a wood stove, so was great to take the chill off on... More
