Stopped h ere for a quick bite during a business trip as it was close to the highway and time was precious. I don't typically eat at gas station restaurants but we needed a quick lunch. I was happy that my expectations were exceeded. I had a starter soup that was, surprisingly, made in house and tasted quite good. The... More

We only had about 55 minutes (more than enough time for breakfast) because we had my brother out on leave from HMSC Acadia. The food took ages to come out, upwards of 30 mins, for 4 breakfasts. There was no one else in the place aside from us. Two gentlemen came in right when our food came out. The eggs... More

No coffee refills and cold food despite my request that she ask the... More

Irving Big Stops are known for their home cooked meals. The service is average. Sharon is an excellent waitress! Try to get her and your experience will be wonderful. Breakfast is great but a little over priced. Lunch & Dinner menus are the same - everything from a hot turkey sandwich to haddock (which is frozen, not fresh) and fries.... More
