The food is pretty good and the portions are good, the service can be a little slow at times but good food is worth waiting for. The servers are very friendly and go out of their way to be helpful...The atmosphere is really great feeling like a 50's diner and the servers outfits suit the decor well. I do find... More

With a variety if patrons, True North had lots to offer for the young and old alike. Prices are great value and would recommend it to families looking for a good dinner spot.

I love this place - it seems right out of the 1950's in it's style and decor. Lots of booths. The menu was varied and the portions were excellent. The chowder was *amazing* with huge scallops, lobster and more... and comes with a huge biscuit. The fish and chips were also delicious. The milkshakes are legendary. We had chocolate milkshakes...

While out for groceries we decided to stop at the True North Diner with the kids for dinner. This was our third visit and as usual the atmosphere is wonderful. The kids were disappointed that we couldn't get a booth with a jukebox(as they were taken by people not using them) so we didn't play any music. We were seated... More

Ordered the crunchy haddock sandwich. It was kind of bland; I had high hopes for it as a fish sandwich is my favourite thing to order at a restaurant. The fire were limp and very greasy. The chocolate milk shake was very good. I ordered a piece of lemon pie to take home after reading it was so good from... More

Love this hidden gem in bedford, ns We usually go here before going to the movies. The food is what to expect from a 50's 60's diner. Love it so much I want to work there. Even the girls where the poofy skirts with the sneakers. Have mostly booths. The atmosphere is the best, juke boxes, wall decor etc. The... More

We are never disappointed in the True North Diner! I seem to remember when it opened that they had a very limited menu, but now it is the best place to go for good home cooking and retro food. We went at "rush hour" on Saturday night (a good sign when you have to wait for a table) and were... More

We have eaten here several times and food was consistently good. Most recently I had the blackened haddock special with a side salad and my partner had a tuna melt with fries and coleslaw side. He also always has their chocolate milkshake which he loves, all the food was good. The fish was very fresh and I think next time... More

Ate here with my family over the holidays - it was a great choice. I had only heard one good review about the place so I was interested but still skeptical. Our waitress was very friendly and amazing at her job, probably the best waitress I have ever had. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was interesting and fun. We... More
