Took my wife here while the little one was away. The menu had a nice selection of dishes to pick from. Our server was very personable and had a good knowledge of the dishes and the special. The food was very delicious, well plated and was reasonably priced. Restaurant was also very clean. Would definitely eat here again.

We had dinner here one evening in July. The food was ok, nothing special or that stood out to us. The service was good: fast and friendly. It had a nice atmosphere: quiet.

Highly recommend ordering seafood from Main Street Cafe! We ordered mussels and salmon this time and it was great. The chowder is another amazing dish that is a "must" on their menu.

We were referred to this pub as the best place in town to eat by staff at a local motel, which reinforced our previous research. She recommended going early (before 6:00 pm) on Sunday because the "pick up group" of musicians who play to support the local food bank always draws a crowd. She was so right on both counts....

Thomas L, we apologize but you may have mistaken us for another restaurant in town as we unfortunately do not have music entertainment in our dining room. We are pleased that you had the opportunity to visit another local restaurant during your recent visit in Antigonish. More

The decor and atmospere was excellent. Modern, clean and spacious . Food was excellent value and truly delicious. Both our meals was hot, and reasonable portioned. Staff was friendly and efficient. Very pleased. Only mark was that seemed you to be rushed out after finishing.
