A new owner here (2019) with a new menu and chef. Great food with great prices. You may have to make a reservation on the weekends as the space is limited and very popular. Try the burger or the seafood linguini!
Black Rock Bistro, located on Main Street, across from the landmark old post office, is a popular spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner. (Hours may vary during the winter months.)
“Partridge Island was a sacred place according to Mi'kmaq tradition. It and the area surrounding it became the nucleus of a Loyalist settlement which later would move northeast to Mill Village, today's Parrsboro. Since the great Saxby Gale of 1869, the island has been joined to the mainland by a sandy isthmus which provides access today. A hiking trail leads to the top and its beautiful views of the Minas Basin, Blomidon and Cape Split. At low tide, the area around it is a favourite place for rock hounds, but watch out for rapidly rising tides. Nearby is historic Ottawa House with interpretive plaques and exhibits which help tell the story of this beautiful place.”
“The Glooscap Restaurant has now been rebuilt and newly opened following a disastrous fire in December, 2018. It has long been a local landmark, serving lunch and dinner throughout the year. Always a popular place for families and community gatherings.”
“This nine hole course has been described as one of the most scenic in Canada. A must visit for the golf enthusiast.”
