Happy Discovery

We spent the night at the Maritime, so we had both a dinner and then breakfast experience there. Both were well above average for cleanliness, service, and tastiness.

Friendly service and good food. Had the breakfast special, scrambled eggs with ham and home fries baked in the oven. Really good way to start the day.

I had lunch here today, July 14 with three other people. The hostess and our waitress were both friendly, knowledgable and efficient. I had the lunch special which was a shaved roast beef sandwich with carmelized onions, spinach and Dijon mustard on a pretzel bun. It was served with a choice of soup, salad or fries. I chose salad.

I like this restaurant mainly for the booths. It is the only restaurant in town where you can sit at a private plush booth. The decor is tasteful. It is a little quiet for me but sometimes that is what you need. The food is fine. I've had some hits and misses. I had the asian soup the other day.... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us calicrowwoman. The booths are nice and comfortable, aren't they? We are happy to hear you were pleased with the service and speed. We do make a different soup daily, and alternate featured desserts as well. We are a location aimed at more intimate dining, but can certainly accommodate groups upon request. We... More

great seafood chowder!!! we loved some of the old charm of this city Antigonish...lots of road construction

Gaëtane T, The seafood chowder is a great choice! Popular with the locals as well. :) Antigonish is a great little town, but the road construction is almost inevitable in Nova Scotia, we hope it's not enough to prevent you from making trip up again! More

I had the seafood chowder for supper and it was very nice. For breakfast, I had the french toast and found it lacking in flavor. Once I add the maple syrup it was fine.

We were guests of the hotel so we got to sample the wonderful seafood chowder more than once. It was worth reviewing -- delicious and creamy and chock full of tender seafood, cooked just right. We have eaten a lot of seafood chowder over the years. This one is delightful. We also ate breakfast here. It was good, nothing extraordinary,... More
