Birthday Supper

Fast efficient service made for a normal visit to Webbs. Our steaks were cooked as ordered, baked potato and tasty onion rings! Our drink order was right on and empty glasses quickly offered a refill. Not much has changed in the 30 years I have been eating here, especially the interior, but... read more

This was possibly the worst meal we have ever had!! Can gravy, canned mushrooms and a $30.00 steak that was almost inedible. Save your money!!!

We visited Mother Webb's for the first time in July, and I thought it was awful! My steak was terrible! My wife had the ribs and liked them but I did not get to taste any because she had them gone before I had a chance. My wife then convinced me to try it again for lunch, which we did.... More

This is one of the most amazing popular restaurants in rural Nova Scotia. We were there mid week and it was packed solid. The Mother's Best steaks are grilled as you like them and can be supplemented with onions or mushrooms. Nice atmosphere with the owner always at the door greeting people. Service is fast and waitresses are pleasant and... More

We stopped in on our way home from Cape Breton on a Sunday afternoon. The place was packed, a little crowded inside but didn't find I could hear the other diner's conversations or anything like that. Service was so fast, I couldn't believe we had our appetizer and then our meal so quickly! We had the special - aged NY... More

Cold steak, not honest about kitchens in ability to deal with allergens.. It was so horrible if my partner had not have liked his fish breading I wouldn't have bothered to review. Kitchen argued when waitress tried to return my food.

As a chef I am totally disgusted in this establishment. I would have rather stopped at Macdonalds then this hole at the side of the highway. They have client review cards asking if they were better than their competition. Unless there's a competition for horrible food, they have none! The service was horrible, our server MELISSA was extremely rude and... More

We went to this restaurant for a steak dinner, as it was recommended by the Coastal Inn just across the TC Highway, and where we were staying. The place is obviously popular with locals, as it was full, loud, and even boistrous, with large local family groups, as well as couples, and singles. The steaks we ordered came quickly, and...

We were staying in the coastal inn over the road and this is really the only place nearby. We weren't expecting much, but had a very tasty meal. I had the small sirloin and husband had half a rack of ribs, which were so good he wished he'd had a whole rack. It's very popular and turnover is quick, don't... More
