Waitress was very good but the food was not. I ordered breakfast at 2 in the afternoon and was told the grilled home fries would not be good, to go with the deep fried. They were OK. The "over hard" eggs I ordered were way undercooked. The white was runny. The bacon looked like someone threw it in the microwave... More

We have eaten here for years , same waitresses always friendly and great food. In the past year it has been changing for the worse. First we noticed back in the winter they changed their turkey to some kind of processed crap, then prices started changing and all the food. I just went for the last time yesterday, my son... More

Dirty tables, short staffed and not the best food. Very disorganized the sign said wait to be seated but no one came finally the waitress said seat yourself it was difficult to find a clean table. The Food was bland and not cheap given the type of restaurant it is.

This was one of the best truck stops, in the last year this place has drastically changed. The food isn't made from scratch like before, the portions are smaller,and all the long term waitresses seem to be gone. I use to love coming here every summer, you would see the same staff, and they were super friendly, now it feels... More

The food was okay but had little seasoning. The service was okay too. We will probably keep driving next time because they're better options.

This use to be our go to spot on our way from Nova Scotia to Bangor. Two years ago when we stopped, we were quite disappointed, but decided to try again this year. That was a mistake. We arrived around 10:30 am, it was not too busy. We waited for almost ten minutes to get menus, and then another 20... More

We stopped in for breakfast and were very pleased with the food and service. Our server, Stacey, was friendly and brought our drinks out right away. We shared an omelet and she made sure that we had an extra plate without us asking. She also fave us a senior discount on our bill. Highly recommend!

We went to this restaurant for dinner one evening and was very pleasantly surprised by the restaurant. We have eaten at many Irving restaurants over the years and this has to be one of the best. Our server was cheerful and efficient. The food was fresh, hot and tasty.

Thank Joan H
