The Reversing Falls Restaurant is located inside the Reversing Falls Rapids Visitor Center at 200 Bridge Road overlooking the Reversing Falls Rapids. The facility was constructed in 1954 and the restaurant was initially known as “The Robertson” until 1957 when George Maniatis a local restaurateur took the helm and launched the “Reversing Falls Restaurant.” Advertisements proclaimed “Dining with a View.”
George’s menu showcased “FRESH New Brunswick SEAFOODS” and “Special Dinners”. Amongst the featured items were “Broiled Fresh Saint John Harbour Salmon Steak”, “Hot or Cold Boiled New Brunswick Lobster”, “Fresh Lobster Roll”, “Broiled Canadian Red Brand T-Bone Steak”, and “Loyalist Style Strawberry Shortcake”.
George provided visitors from around the world with quality foods and great hospitality until his retirement in 1992.
Theodore Faltsetas “Saki” followed. Saki provided wonderful hospitality and impressed us with his creativity for nearly twenty years.
Over time the need for renovation demanded attention. In October of 2015 it became Max Kotlowski’s turn … Max renovated the facility with design advice from Saki and on September 26th, 2017 the Reversing Falls Restaurant reopened.
Today we continue the tradition of offering our guests local Seafood and Chef’s dinners. Our new kitchen features an all-induction “mainline”, advanced ovens and the latest food preparation equipment … thus allowing Chef Nick to take Reversing Falls Restaurant to a new level of service.
Our menu offers local favorites FROM THE SEA and FROM THE LAND
We are about “eating well and living healthy”.
If your are cruise passenger or staying in downtown Saint John (locals say “Uptown”) and enjoy walking then we advise the Harbour Passage trail which currently terminates at the Reversing Falls Rapids. Dine and get your exercise also !
