What a wonderful experience! Had a great time from the moment we walked in until we departed. The atmosphere is very welcoming & relaxing. Our food tasted absolutely delicious; the servings were generous & very nicely presented. Our hostess/waitress was pleasant & accommodating. We were fortunate to meet the proprietor & had a very enjoyable chat & visit with him...... More

I still get emails from Roadside Willies and my biggest regret is that I never ate here. All my NS friends love it and I never got the chance. It will be first on my list when I am back for a visit!!!

My family enjoys dining out at a wide variety of restaurants. When we're looking for tasty, high quality food and decent service we always return to Roadside Willies. We love the ribs and smoked specialties but this time around we filled up on their incredible fish and chips. A yummy crispy coating without being greasy at all. The price is... More

Been here twice. First time was awful, it was my work bridal shower and I after 2 hours I still hadn't received my food while everyone else at my table had eaten. I ended up eating a little of the person next to me's nachos. The server was avoiding our table even though we were friendly and we had to... More

Fish and Chips and a Garrison. Was recommended by our friends at Tulip & Thistle B&B. Short stop after a long day in the Tidal Bore raft ride. Big TV, easy to find restaurant

The sweet chill tenderloin steak tips was recommended to us by our B & B hosts. These were good value for money and good baked potatoes too.

I enjoy Roadside Willies, the interior is very nice, the food is good and the staff are very friendly. Great place to go for a special gathering but I do recommend making reservations for a large gathering. There is also a website where you can find information on special events or entertainment nights! :)

We ordered dinner and drinks. My wife had the snoked pork chop. The waitress suggested that she get the mustard sauce on the side. The... More

My husband and I are VIP members and thoroughly enjoy the Monday Madness night. We have been going to Roadside Willies for the past two plus years and have not had a bad meal yet. The service is also top notch. The fish and chips are the best in this area. This is the restaurant we usually go to when... More
