Food was delicious, well presented and service was excellent. We both had different salmon entrees. It is unusual to have a choice of salmon.

It's worth noting right off the top I have dined at this restaurant at least 50 times over the last 10 years of my life. I am not sure how but consistency is maintained here better then most restaurants I have come across. My favourite meal as indicated by the title is the battered fish and Caesar, the batter is...

Right across the street from our B&B, it was recommended - we were skeptical at first since it looked "touristy" but glad we went. We enjoyed the meal and the selection from the bar and the staff was extremely helpful. Enjoy this place for good food and feel at home!

We often eat at the Main Street Café and love their food, so the Celtic Room was a natural choice when selecting a location for our son's wedding rehearsal party. We could not have been more satisfied with the exceptional service starting with the event planning with Larry McLean, Manager, who was a great help with the menu. As it... More

The Mainstreet Cafe has an excellent lunch menu. It is reasonably priced and the food quality and quantity is great. A little pricy for dinner especially for families on a budget.

Stopped for dinner recently on a Friday night. Restaurant was very busy but the service was good and we were seated right away. We ordered Chicken Parmigiana and Seafood Primavera and both were healthy portions, hot and tasty. Two happy hour glasses of red wine, 2 dinners, 2 coffees and a shared dessert came to $65.95 incl. tax. Have had... More

I stopped in for lunch with a friend and we each ordered the Mestique Burger, with fries. The burger bun had mold & there was a hair on the burger, so I brought the plate over to the waitress. Who then argued with me, about the bun & hair. Said that I was crazy & seeing things. She took the... More

Always love going to The Maritime Inn...the food is great and the service is always friendly and professional...it's in the heart of downtown Antigonish and has lots of off street parking...when they have live entertainment it's usually great as well!
