The service was very poor . We were there at least 30 minutes before getting served . A gentleman at one of the tables was served a meal he didn't order . It was sent back and he had to wait about 20 minutes while his wife ate her meal . She had to do the same when his meal... More

Great pan fried fish and chips, but the restaurant does not have air conditioning. There is nothing fancy, but really great food and the service is amazing.

This place was a great find on our passing through trip to Nova Scotia. Food and service was good. We happened to be there for dinner and saw the best sunset ever! Would surely make this another stop if ever back in that area.

My family ate breakfast there this morning. My son ordered pancakes with fresh fruit. The fruit was a bowl of frozen melon and pineapple. It was far from "fresh". The pancakes must have been cooked on grill that also cooked other food. There were burnt pieces of things all over the pancakes. My "over easy" eggs were more well done.... More

I'm sorry to hear this. I assure you the fruit cup is never frozen. As for the rest, I will speak to the cook and rectify those concerns. We serve many breakfasts and people usually love it. Hope you will give us another try. Michele More

Had the pleasure of having dinner & breakfast the next morning at this restaurant. Everything is homecooked and the butterscotch pie is awesome. Excellent service and friendly staff.

We stayed in Cheticamp for almost a week, and ended up eating 7 straight meals at Hometown Kitchen. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. We have eaten on roadtrips in 9 provinces and 49 states the last four years. Without question, our favorite overall restaurant was Hometown Kitchen. The butterscotch pie and turtle cheesecake are...

The clam chowder is second to none! The pizza we had was incredible as well for a great value. The new owner is very friendly and full of great information to travellers. Overall we loved this place and would return in a heart beat.

Six of us stopped for dinner near closing time and off season. Owner-operator and her trainee made us feel welcome despite the hour. Even better was the experience when our meals arrived. Great food: best pizza in years; delicious soup and a perfect authentic Caesar salad ...not in this area too often, but definitely a reason for returning!

I did an East Coast trip to visit my daughter July 2013. There were 4 of us traveling together. We were told if we wanted a great lobster dinner to have it while visiting the Cabot Trail. It was the Hometown Kitchen we all decided on and 3 of us had the Lobster dinner, and all 3 of us were... More

thanks for your candid review of Hometown Kitchen. I apologize that your experience was less than what you expected. I can assure you that the Lobster is cooked while still alive. I will review the time frame that the cooks are using to prepare the lobster and rectify the situation for the 2014 season. We cannot fix what we don't... More
