I am here for lunch and the Atlantic haddock is nicely cut in 3 small fillets with a small salad. I have a choice of salad and choose the green salad. This is a great light meal for those who want to experience the well-known Atlantic seafood at reasonable prices.

I decided to try Justamere based on Trip Advisor reviews. My "junior Justamere special" was delicious! I was able to get it with homemade... More

Went here with a local who said it's his favourite spot in town. It definitely didn't disappoint. There was only one other couple in the restaurant, as we were there about an hour before the supper rush.

Personally we love the smoked salmon eggs Benedict. Anyone who loves smoked salmon should give this a try!

Excellent meal and fabulous service. My mom and I were spending a night away in Antigonish and decided on Justamere because of the menu and photos on web site. She had the chicken and mushroom Alfredo and it came to the table really hot and the creamy sauce was delicious. I had the chipotle burger which had a lovely grilled... More

We go to the Justamere quite often especially for brunch and lunch. We have always been treated well by staff and cannot say that we have had a bad meal ever.

We had a delightful mid afternoon lunch while on vacation. Service was prompt and polite. We ordered the curry mussels, fish cakes and seafood chowder. Prices were very reasonable and food was delicious, the only thing missing was the sauce for the fishcakes. We will definitely be back.
