A heaping portion of tender lobster meat tops gooey mozzarella and garlic butter spread on the lobster pizza, a specialty of J’Romes Pizzeria and Diner. Chefs at the casual eatery, located steps from the shore, source fresh-caught seafood as well as preparing sides such as coleslaw from scratch. Their epicurean efforts yield a small army of creative pizza pies, such as the chicken cheddar broccoli, the philly cheesesteak, and The Monster, loaded with meat. The chefs also stuff sub sandwiches and burgers, and pile pasta high to resemble Italy’s most famous tower, a five-story-tall lasagna that da Vinci himself sprinkled with cheese.
It’s hard to know where to look first upon walking into one of Jungle Jim’s two-dozen locations. Nearly every inch of wall space overflows with such safari-themed accoutrements as palm fronts, bamboo poles, colored lights, and a tiki bar. Although the restaurant aims to transport families to an exotic tropical wonderland, the huge menu is stuffed with familiar favorites designed to appeal to nearly every kind of diner. Chicken panini wraps and zesty buffalo wings swing quickly from the kitchen, but for more ceremonious occasions there are also a number of upscale, steakhouse-style options. A favorite is the St. Louis-style Rhino Ribs, a heft half-rack made sticky with honey garlic or barbecue sauce. Alongside such decadence, the special Slim Jim menu showcases entrees with 550 calories or fewer, such as pan-seared tiger shrimp and grilled chicken salad. Kids can dig into smaller portions on their own menu—which, once they’ve decided between alfredo pasta and animal-shaped chicken nuggets, they can fold into a tiki-style mask.
The Fundy Complex combines restaurants, nightlife, and sightseeing to give visitors and locals myriad ways to enjoy the Bay of Fundy. At Fundy Restaurant, diners gaze out of the 80-foot glass solarium to watch the boats and boardwalk while enjoying fresh seafood such as lobster and scallops. Meanwhile, boardwalk seating along the water is an apt extension of Dockside Restaurant's relaxed atmosphere, which invites locals and yachtsmen to stop by for a meal or drink. During the evening hours, Club 98 capitalizes on the region's vibrant nightlife with DJs and dancing.
For self-guided adventures, the complex rents kayaks during spring and summer months. Guests can also stay close to all the sights and activities at Dockside Suites, which offers cozy rooms to retire to, each equipped with the comforts of home such as full kitchens and balconies boasting panoramic views.
