The following list allows you to read up on the limited selection of Creole restaurants you'll encounter during your stay. On each restaurant's name, click to find out more about its style, hours, or even what the view will be like.

Lobster Shack

Runaway Bay

Located 2.0 miles north-northwest of downtown St. John's, Lobster Shack is on the same premises as Runaway Beach, and is a viable choice for travelers thinking about visiting this neighborhood. From the restaurant, Dickenson Bay is less than a mile (a kilometer and a half) to the northeast. Not only do they have festive fare including Creole cuisine and hot dogs, but we shouldn't forget they're also known for putting out great sandwiches.

Classic decor seems odd for a spot called the Lobster Shack, but set in a courtyard garden that is exactly the way you'd describe it.
