We went there around 1:30 pm. This was August 2018. It was very busy. We ordered their fish and chips, and it was very tasty and fulfilling. This restaurant is very close to the scenic caves.

Right on the Bay of Fundy, this place turns out good meals of haddock, chips and coleslaw. Staff are great and prices are reasonable. Delicious.

No, I've never heard of anyone needing a reservation. It can be a busy spot but it can also accommodate a large crowd. Enjoy your visit.

After Thanksgiving, the Caves restaurant is open only when cruises dock in the Saint John harbour. If definitely closes for the season early November (when cruises season ends as well). It re-opens early May.
