We stopped here on our way home after a gymnastics competition and had 11 people in our party. Due to having that many (3 families) at a table, we expected the service to be slow. We were in and out in under and hour and had full plates and full belly's. Service was great and the wait staff were very... More

Liked the food - portions and choices. But found it rather expensive in relation to the menu of the previous owners. (We are there at least once a month either for dinner or breakfast).

Stop here every time I can when passing through. Love there breakfast but all is good. Looking for a good entree try the smelts when they are in season. My father swears by them.

I have not been treated so rudely by waitresses ever before. The air conditioning was blowing right on our heads freezing us and our food. We addled to have it turned down or away from us, we were told to get a sweater from our vehicle if we didn't like it! Most of us were done eating before some received... More

New owner has done a bit to spruce things up, including a lovely mural of the Miramichi river and bridge. However the food is only average, poor presentation and medium portions. Tinned verggies a constant. Menu seems to be the same as when I first went there four years ago. Service ok but lacks attention to detail.

I have mixed feelings over this place. I have eaten here a few times and the food is very average and service very average. It's very traditional fare and slow service. You expect to see Linda Lavin from Mel's Diner walk out at any moment. The interior is very dated and tired. If you want a club sandwich or a... More

Had breakfast there about 3 weeks ago. The waitress was completely indifferent to our being there, served one of the 2 of us with no explanation of the other's meal which arrived when we were ready to leave 20 minutes later. Flies all over the place, crappy food, crappy service. This used to be a mediocre place to have any... More
