DINING AT DUNCANBY

Experience the Duncanby difference as you enjoy world­class cuisine with stunning ocean views, while pods of whales and dancing salmon provide acrobatic entertainment.

Our chefs use only the finest ingredients flown in from around the globe. Their culinary passion is reflected in carefully prepared and beautifully presented meals. Your dining experience in Rivers Inlet will stimulate your senses. We have a full menu available throughout the day for our all- inclusive guests with no group meal times or set menu. Eat what you want, when you want.

Enjoy the views from Jessie’s Place Restaurant and our outside dining area, Raven’s Roost. If you prefer, you can dine in our lounge while watching satellite TV.

Before you head out fishing for salmon and halibut, start your morning bright and early with coffee and fresh baked pastries, or an omelet and homemade hash browns. If you want to get out on the water and start fishing right away, you can pack up breakfast and take it with you. If you don’t want to come in for lunch, and keep fishing, there are a variety of items you can pack in a cooler and take with you; fried chicken, sausage rolls and sandwiches, just to name a few.

CULINARY CREATIONS

For many years, two of my greatest passions have been fishing and cooking. There is nothing better than spending the day out on the water, landing a big one, and then coming home to cook it for friends and family. My years of experience in the kitchen have led to a variety of creations that I am pleased to share with you. Recipes will be changed periodically, check back for new ones. Enjoy!
