The menu looked great, the restaurant ambiance, pleasant. We were celebrating our 47th wedding anniversary and wanted a 'nice' table. The young woman seating us suggested we pick, and sit at, a little table for 2. We wanted a bit of space so chose a...More

I'm sorry you felt you weren't given a "nice" table. We are a very small restaurant that sits a max of 40 guests and we only have 4 tables that can sit a party of 4 guests. Our servers are trained to accommodate as many...More

I loved that they had GF options for me as I am only one in party that has a sensitivity! The waitress advised that the fries were in same as others food items with gluten. Thanks for that!

We were just passing through town and stopped here for lunch. We had plenty of creative, tasty options. Our waitress deftly answered our questions and helped us select a delightful lunch. The maple curry pumpkin soup was rich and savory with a hint of sweetness....More

Was passing through Antigonish for business and stopped at the Brownstone for lunch, my favourite spot in town. Lucky for me there was no line up (sometimes it goes down the street) and I was able to get in right away. I come to the...More

Service was extremely poor and there’s simply no excuse to justify it. Waited 15 minutes for a glass of water, 40 minutes for food. Lobster roll was the worst I’ve ever had, for $20.More

We enjoyed two lunches while in Antigonish and enjoyed them both. Good waitresses, nice atmosphere and very busy place. Good fish and chips as well as Lobster Dip.

I’m not really sure. However I know they have the coconut cream pie, sticky toffee pudding, deep fried cheesecake... There’s so many it’s hard to remember. They’re all made from scratch too. Delicious!! :)
