Hit or miss

I went for the first time a couple years ago and the steak was amazing! It's a bit pricey if you're on a budget. The second time I went, the steak was mediocre at best. It is a hit or miss when it comes to Mother Webb's. They do Have plenty of advertisment on the way. I havn't been there... read more

Thought I would give them a second chance after the uproar on bad treatment of the women working there, figured they'd make extra effort and change their ways, but no-go. Salty steak, rushed service, bad lighting, outdated decor, canned mushrooms at extra cost, smarmy owner. Take a detour into town. Really.

I've been driving past Mother Webb's regularly since 1983, and have never taken the time to stop in until recently. I've always heard good things about the place though, so on this last trip past, I decided to treat my son to a good meal at a place with a good reputation. After eating there, I'm not sure where the... More

My wife and I went here one night. Instead of getting a table for two we had to eat with another couple. There was about 2 inches beteewn our tables. It was a really akward dinner. The steak itself is okay. Very salty and thin. Oions and mashrooms extremely over priced. You also fell rush as you get the bill... More

This is a fantastic place to eat if you like a side dish of sexual harassment! I had to sit through a meal while a big guy on the door ogled the waitresses and female patrons who were coming in the door. His loud and obnoxious banter with sexual overtones could be heard over our conversation while we were eating.... More

This business had been around for many years. It has been spotlighted lately in its mistreatment /harassment of staff. We will never eat there again. Shameful.

There are so many reasons not to eat here. The steak was so salty that my husband couldn't eat it. Buy a decent cut of beef and you won't have to soak it in salt to make it chewable. The waitress was great, and very apologetic. The tables are so close that you can't have a private conversation. I don't... More

This was alway one of my favourite stops on the way to Halifax. I would plan my trips around it. I've since moved and its been years since I had the opportunity to stop in. I finally had the chance on this trip and I was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately, my visit did not live up to my... More
