“Very Good Food Reasonably Priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

I recently travelled to North Sydney and Sydney Mines and had the opportunity to have dinner at the Clansman Motel Restaurant in North Sydney. The food, the service and the ambiance were all quite good. I especially enjoyed the strawberry shortcake. I would recommend the Clansman Motel Restaurant to locals and anyone visiting the area.

“Food and service were not acceptable”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

When we finally received our food, it certainly was not as described on the menu (missing 3 of the five ingredients). The waitress didn't return to see if everything was satisfactory (there was only one other table in that section which was occupied). I had to go chase her down to tell her what the problem was and she was agitated. The manager wasn't any better. No offer to refill drinks etc. No apology and no "Thank You".

“Old-fashioned menu will appeal to some”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

The Clansman restaurant is part of a small hotel in the town of North Sydney, which likely gets lots of business from people travelling to or from Newfoundland. The restaurant is old-fashioned in terms of decor and menu. I've eaten there twice recently, and last time with three family members.

The liver and onions is a consistent favorite at the restaurant, as are fish and chips. While I'm not a giant fan of either dish, dining companions said many good things about both dishes. On one occasion, my striploin steak was delivered medium-well, rather than medium-rare. A disappointment. On the other occasion, I ordered the turkey dinner, which was what you'd expect of a turkey dinner - some white meat, some dark, turnip, stuffing, potatos, and cranberry sauce. One note about the cranberry sauce -- please, don't give people canned cranberry sauce at a restaurant. Make it.

Service is friendly and timed well -- especially so, if you eat with regulars.

“Very good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

The Clansman dining room has provided consistently good breakfasts for a number of years; this time was no exception. Pan fries, eggs & bacon all done just right, not greasy like some motel restuarants. Try it if you enjoy your early morning b & e with great tasting coffee.
