Have been to Roadside Willies many times. The food is always good (especially fish and chips) The staff has always been friendly and helpful. Only on one occasion did I find the service could have been better but some of the staff were off sick and they didn't or couldn't replace them. I would not hesitate to recommend this establishment... More

Regrettably we had a very disengaged waitress with no attention to detail or effort to make our meal enjoyable. The smoked meat burger and alfredo were good, the onion rings were very greasy and horrible. There was no salt 'n pepper on the table, no placements. Prior guests crumbs were on the table and the table was not cleaned well... More

We have been to Roadside Willies several times, both for lunch and dinner. We have never had a bad meal, the prices are reasonable, the staff is friendly. Great lunch specials, and the fish and chips are the best in town!!!

This food is absolutely astounding, although definitely on the expensive side. It is a pleasant, quiet little place that is good for friends, family and just a night out. Staff was friendly and the food was actually fairly timely!

We have been here a couple of times in the last couple of months and the food is really tasty! They also had a great jazz combo on our last visit which made for a lovely, relaxing and enjoyable time with our friends.

Excellent food, great atmosphere and friendliness are the order of the day. They occasionally have live entertainment which is always a good bargain to attend after your meal.

I had heard very good things about Roadside Willies plus read good reviews so we were anxious to give it a try. We were travelling from Halifax to Moncton. My husband had the fish and chips and I had the blue cheese burger. The burger was good, you could taste blue cheese in almost every bite, the bun was not... More
