Grand Manan has a variety of places to eat, up and down the island. They tend to be casual and family-oriented, either to dine in or take out. The restaurants associated with inns or B&B’s provide more intimate dining experiences. Reservations may be required. Another favorite way is to order up some takeout and have a picnic at one of the many scenic locations along the shoreline. Some restaurants close off-season, so it is best to check ahead for your favorites.
Compass Rose Heritage Inn
Breathtaking ocean view dining serving fresh seafood!
Guests tell us that meals are one of the highlights of a stay at Compass Rose. Extending from one side of the house to the other, the dining room windows overlook the Bay and North Head fishing harbor. Whichever table you choose for dining, you will have a stunning ocean view. We offer dinner 7 nights a week, our specialty is lobster, but there is always an alternative, which changes daily. Vegetarian meals are available with prior notice. Homemade pies are freshly made that day. Sit back, relax and enjoy the view while we serve you!
Open weekends in early June and late September and open seven nights a week in July-August.
