I ate with a group of 6. I don't think there were any favourable comments. Myself and another lady had the lobster roll, both of us agreed that it was totally devoid of flavour, and both of us had slightly bad tummies the next day. The lobster roll that I had at Superstore for $5.99 was actually tastier, albeit less... More

My wife and I decided to go here because we had been to this place years ago, but we learned the hard way that it was now a completely different restaurant. They guy who greeted us when we first went in was very friendly, and our waitress was okay, although not very attentive. I completely enjoyed the decor, but that... More

The atmosphere is very nice! The concept is good it just seems to be lacking! They are trying to to be a Canadian Cracker Barrel, but the food is overpriced and average. As I have been in public service before I love to leave a good tip when it is warranted. I left a tip but only bare minimum. Our... More

We arrived mid-afternoon on a Sunday so the place was virtually empty. Our server was prompt and pleasant. I had a sundae and coffee while hubby enjoyed a burger with a side salad. He enjoyed both but commented that the side salad was excellent... fresh and full of color and variety. We will try it again for supper one day... More

It had been a while since our last visit and I knew there was new management who were turning the place around. We were there when they opened at 11:00. We were seated promptly and our waitress greeted us with a big smile. She was knowledgeable and attentive and drinks and meals were delivered in good time. There is a... More

The story of Saltscape's is the story of most restaurants in Nova Scotia..... they play it safe and keep in bland. The menu is fries, meatloaf, fish and chips. Really... Is this all that Nova Scotia can offer. Catering to the geriatric crowd they seem to be succeeding. The food is average. Portions size is generous. The location good. Plentiful... More

WOW! Got off the highway after seeing their signage and wanted to try out the Cracker Barrel of the East Coast. Waited at the podium for almost 5 minutes before anyone appeared. Concerning that no one is even watching the general store! Lady asked if we had a reservation for Mothers Day and we advised no. We were NOT there... More

I didn't have high expectations coming to Saltscapes, however I was pleasantly surprised by the menu and their attention to gluten friendly fare. My mom and grandmother ordered the stew of the day, which they reported was very tasty although very thick looking with little broth. I ordered a maple glazed chicken breast with mashed sweet potato and maple glazed... More

Now I realize that Saltscapes is a family restaurant, but when you have one group of 6 being loud, and obnoxious in an otherwise almost empty restaurant it makes it very difficult to enjoy the experience. I also know that it is not uncommon for disruptive customers to be asked to behave. It is a restaurant, not their private home.... More

I found the staff to be very friendly, but the food was about average only. I had the blackened haddock and it was well presented and had good flavour. At the higher end of the price scale for the type of food.
