Finely crafted food and beverages don’t need to come from a fancy restaurant, or with a large price tag. St. Stephen’s newest food and drink establishment The Five Kings Restaurant is a relaxed, comfortable space with high quality, well crafted, interesting food and drink. Her partnership with Picaroons Traditional Ales has breathed new life into St. Stephen’s former train station at the corner of Milltown Boulevard and King Street.

Five Kings serves a full lunch menu, appetizer menu, and dinner menu with rotating specials. Not only can you enjoy a pint from a full selection Picaroons Traditional Ales on tap, you can also take your favourite home with you. The Five Kings is a licensed outlet where you can purchase or refill your growlers (64 fl oz./1.89 L bottles) as well as a variety of amazing Picaroons merchandise.

The vision for this vibrant space started with the community of St. Stephen itself. When the building’s tenant, the provincial Visitor Information Centre, moved to a new location at Highway 1/King Street, the Town of St. Stephen began considering possibilities for the space. A group of local people felt that the preservation of the historic train station and its continued use as a public space were paramount.

With the opening of the nearby Garcelon Civic Center in 2014, there was a niche in St. Stephen for a fine dining experience. The group began working with Sean Dunbar, founder of Picaroons, and Chef Lisa came on board – and the Five Kings was born.

Here, you can enjoy locally sourced and inspired dishes combined with one of New Brunswick’s finest, award-winning craft breweries.
