You can rely on the name "Family" to assure that it is the perfect place to bring your entire family, including the kid who hates fish, the obsessive aunt who hates fried foods, the compulsive uncle who loves large portions, and the obsessive-compulsive niece who eats only mini-salads. This spot serves everything from the best baked haddock to the crispiest fried clams; the most unique lobster chef's salad to the traditional boiled crustacean (served with REAL and warm butter), and homemade desserts of which culinary myths are born and guaranteed to tempt even that obsessive-compulsive, min-salad eating niece. The word "Family" in the name refern not only to your family, but also to the owner's family, i.e., grandmother, daughters, granddaughters, and - are you ready? - great-granddaughter. The fish is guaranteed to be fresh by the grandfather who buys them personally to be served in the restaurant and also sold in the attached fish market. Now there are families and there are families ... the family who bought, cooked, and served your meal are quite obviously - from their friendly manner and smiles - most clearly happy campers. As for yours? If they entered the Family Fisheries Restaurant tired, hungry, and not-altogether happy, I personally guarantee they will leave refreshed, culinarily (is that a word?) satisfied, and most definitely happy campers. Lunch or dinner; fried or baked; fish or meat; salad or mini-salad; the Family Fisheries Restaurant and Take-Out is a restaurant you will want to return to many times while you're on Campobello Island. If, alas, you must leave this brilliant gem on the Bay of Fundy, you will attempt to figure out a way to arrange a return visit, if only for this restaurant. My only frustration is that Tripadvisor provides only five stars maximum ... this one deserves more.
