The best pizza in town

A great restaurant with delicious food, great service and a beautiful view. The pizza is the best and the seafood is always fresh. Great food and family atmosphere.

We basically just stopped for some pizza and it was very good. We were in the area for a few days and some of the locals we talked to recommended it. The menu looked simple and plain but I would suggest you try some of the other great places in town. It has a great view of the water which... More

Restaurant provides excellent fast food. The menu consists of a variety of deep fried seafood, burgers and pizza. Staff is friendly and the view is awesome.

This restaurant provides a nice view of the harbour - the Bluenose II was in port when we were there. The food is good, but nothing out of the ordinary. The menu is varied and there is something for everyone. There is a wide variety of seafood (good fish and chips) on the menu as well as pizza, burgers and... More

My wife had soup and coconut cream pie. I had a sandwich, made with homemade bread. All were simple, but delicious. Our waitress was pleasant and helpful.

I eat here a lot. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it undercooked and old. I love their food but am taking a break from visiting since last time I was in there I ordered fish and chips...the fish was over done, my fries tasted kinda stale and my coleslaw was warm and smelled like compost (also confirmed by my date)

We arrived five minutes before the noon breakfast cut-off, and by the time we were seated the kitchen was already transitioning to lunch. But we really wanted some eggs. Our hostess said she'd handle the situation and, sure enough, we were able to order from the breakfast menu. There isn't much selection because the restaurant doesn't open till ten a.m.... More

Went here for lunch the other day. Not fantastic. I ordered the scallops and onion rings, and my uncle ordered the fish & chips.... scallops were unavailable without being breaded... so that was a turn off, and my uncles fish and chips were crunchy they were so over cooked. Service was decent, not a licensed venue, but I was expecting... More

So, I am not sure why I look at the menu when I go to Big Red's, If you are looking for something different try their Pizza Donair. It is always a great choice.
