Time frame: 4:45 to 6:30 December 2014 STAFF: The number was appropriate for the size of the restaurant. The staff were friendly, professional, knowledgeable about the menu, and service was very prompt.Their attire was appropriate to the nature of the restaurant. Our waitress returned to see if we needed anything and to check to see if the food was to... More

I went with friends to the Engine Room for lunch and had the chicken wings with potato skins. The wings were crispy and delicious (I chose not to have them covered in sauce but has some on the side:) and the skins were covered in bacon, green onion and cheese. Fabulous!! My friends had pizza and fish and chips and... More

I dined at the engine room for the first time this evening. I've never wrote a review before but I felt like this time was necessary. I've never witnessed a more miserable unwelcoming waitress in my life. I'm unsure of the women's name. She was wearing a unprofessional purple sweater this one evening. She rushed away from our table everytime.... More

The Engine Room has a great atmosphere to sit and enjoy the best food in Truro.the lasagna is better than you would make at home.To top your visit off the price is so cheap and the menu has something for everyone.This is a hidden little gem in our wonderful Nova Scotia.

The place has a great location with lots of parking and it offers plenty of seating. The room is large but still comfortable. The staff is generally friendly but was not present enough to deal with issues in a timely manner. The food is average for pub food but it has a good atmosphere and mood to the place. It's... More

I love the food at this restaurant. I love their burgers, potatoe skins are delish, Nachos are loaded..I have never had anything to eat here that I have not liked. Been eating here for 24 years and it is still the best to me.

Shared a meal with family on a Wednesday evening. I had the liver and onions, with bacon, mashed potatoes and veggies. It was cooked to perfection and served hot. Almost too much as there were 2 good size pieces of liver. Two in the party enjoyed the chicken Alfredo and the other diner had fish and chips which was well... More

We ate here on Mothers day. Two of us had the strip loan steak and shrimp special. My steak was prepared as asked, medium well done. The baked potato was hot and sour cream came on the side. The vegetables were okay however not hot. One of the others at our table had a generous serving of lasagne which came... More

Traveling through the area so we stopped to eat. It is the usually types of food you find at a bar. We had a selection of burgers, clubhouse, fries, other sandwiches. It wasn't the best food but it was good. The service was average and the inside looked like a dark bar. They do have lots of room and lots... More
