Great food, poor atmosphere and outrageous prices

My boyfriend and I went for lunch at Jo-Anne's. When we arrived we noticed immediately the horrible smell. The waitress was very friendly and efficient even though it was just her working the dining room and cash register and it was a busy lunch run. I ordered the clams and fries and my boyfriend... read more

Food is okay but I don't know what the odor is when you walk in, but it's enough to keep me from wanting to EVER go back. Whatever it is, it seems to get worse with each passing year.

This was the best hot lobster sandwich I have ever had. It was served with perfect crisp fries and coleslaw. My friend had an equally good omelet and seafood chowder. We will definitely be returning.

They had fresh clams & scallops. We wanted fresh haddock but they only had frozen available. This is unfortunate because we learned the other seafood restaurants in the area had fresh haddock. Most of the scallops were gritty. The clams were ok but a little rubbery.

The place reminds me of an old diner. The decor is plain and simple and there isn't a lot of private space to talk - open with people sitting close by. It's often packed at lunch time. Even though a busy spot, the food is usually very quick. The hot lobster was good, fries nice and hot. My guest had... More

great food, good service try the desert! Fish cakes, we loved it. If you want tasty home cooked meals this place is a must. The choices are many to include home made deserts.

Food is OK. As soon as I stepped in the door, I noticed an odour that they appear to be trying to cover up. It makes me ill. I won't be back. A dreary place.

Had breakfast there on Sunday. Got there about 11:00 and were the first to arrive it appeared as they just turned on the lights when we went in. Eggs, bacon, home fries, toast & coffee for around 8.50. Coffee just ok, the remainder was good.

It was a Wednesday evening when my spouse and I decided to go to the restaurant and order take-out. We were surprised to see a full parking lot and really amused when we entered the place. The first thing you'll encounter will be a mish-mash of items for sale. Uh....VCR Tape anyone? I hear they make great Christmas gifts....in 1980.... More

I recommend Jo-Anne's the staff are very congenial, the restaurant is very clean. and the food is great. I enjoyed the rappie pie, a local Acadien favorite. But also the cheeseburger was enjoyed. The deserts are to die for Blueberry pie was fantastic and the lemon merangue was equally delicious. Well worth a visit.
