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.

We stopped here on our way home from Halifax. The atmosphere is relaxing, staff was friendly and efficient. My husband had the half order of meatloaf with fries and turnip, I had fish cakes, turnip and broccoli. While the food was tasty, my husband's meatloaf and all of my food was warm, not hot. We would eat again, but would... More

Booked supper and had 86 in our group. Some had great food but times for some seemed long for a "booked" meal. Meatloaf this evening was not great and hamburgers seemed stale. The chef salad was amazing and fresh. Some from our group received the 10 % off with the hotel booking at super 8 hotel. While others had missed... More

We came here for a birthday celebration. The food was only okay. I had fishcakes, which weren't great. The prices are way too high for the amount and quality of the food. When it was time to enjoy the birthday cake we had brought with us, we were told we weren't allowed to eat it there, as they have a... More

We travel through Truro a few times a year and try to stop at Saltscapes for lunch. The food is good (especially vegetables). The setup of the building with the big gift shop in the front is similar to Cracker Barrel restaurants but the menu is more limited (probably fresher).

As we were being seated, a tour bus was unloading. Our waitress made a point of getting our order in before the group. We spent 2 weeks touring Nova Scotia and the meal at the Saltscapes Restaurant was at the bottom of the list for us. I ordered two fish cakes which should have been listed as potato cakes since...

My mother and I were looking forward to a hot turkey dinner at Saltscapes this past Sunday evening ...but both of us were greatly disppointed by the tastless meal. The plate had a generous serving of turkey meat...most of it dark meat but unfortunatly very tough. This seemed strange as generally the dark meat is the most tender on any... More
