Went with the family and do not think anyone finished there food. Was really salty and bland and was expecting a lot more. Service is fast, but not worth the hype.

Not much about this place would cause me to return. Dark and gloomy with a creepy dirty atmosphere. I certainly wouldn't take my family back there anytime soon.

I will say the service is spot on! The food, meh, I took a fish and chip and onion rings to share and husband took steak and baked Potato. Everything that was deep fried tasted the exact same and was all overly crisp. I cannot say what the steak was like but the baked potato seemed so old, he didnt... More

A great place to eat, good prices and if you want a good down east meal this is the place to go. Grab a steak and some mash and enjoy

Great little restaurant off the highway worth giving a try. Food: had haddock and fries. Was hot and fast and good portion of fish that I didn't expect for the price. Atmosphere: a little dated but definitely showcased the mom and pop feel in rural Nova Scotia. Was clean and organized. Felt local. Service: was fast and friendly and the... More

I guess I just have an affection for this place having first stopped here when I was really young - which is probably about as long as they've been in business. So I keep coming back. Been a few years since our last visit - and it now looks like they are going to be on the old road as... More

I really hate to give this place a bad rating because it's a landmark, but over the years their prices have increased, the decor hasn't changed since I was in University and the quality has declined. Now that the highway bypasses them completely I'm afraid if they don't change they'll be gone, which is sad. Thin over-cooked steaks, canned veggies... More

Had lunch with with two others and we really enjoyed the meal. Three different dishes and we were all very happy with them. Servers were efficient and food came to the table quick. Ambiance was simple but very clean. Definitely recommend this place.

Thank Anthony D

An informal steakhouse. Mother Webb's is at Exit #35, Trans-Canada Highway, 4788 Highway #104. Open daily from 11 am - 10 pm. Close to Mother Webb's is a general store, a motel, and gas stations. Since 1964, Mother Webb's has been famous for its awesome food and instant service. It is a leading icon for Antigonish restaurants. They have a sterling reputation for food and service. That reputation is a priority for the friendly well-trained staff. The same family owners are still hands-on.
