Saint John Ale House

Modern American in Saint John

On summer evenings this place is popular for its big, wharfside patio and long list of beers on tap. Head upstairs for a menu of locally sourced dishes such as bacon maple scallops, market chowder or giant lobster roll. It's also a favorite spot for weekend brunch.

It keeps long hours and has something for all types and all ages. The executive chef came third on one of the world's well-known TV cooking programs.
