A late night arrival in Digby with plans to take the ferry to New Brunswick in the morning left us looking for a place to eat. We stopped at the Irving, with no regrets. Restaurant itself was a bit dated and needed some TLC but that did not affect the great taste of the food nor the wonderful service. Trudy... More

Took my mother to lunch yesterday, and noticed the Irving wasn't busy so we picked this as our destination. When the waitress come to take our order she seemed completely uninterested.....we placed our order (I was having, or so I thought, a western sandwich while mother wanted a chicken caesar salad). There was one other table at the time who... More

Food is always good, sometimes service is questionable depending on which waitress you get. Decent value also.

Stopped here with my sister after getting off the ferry from Saint John. This place was good in the past but the gravy on my hot hamburger was just terrible. Must be some type of commercial mix - I would advise they change it. Volume of food was certainly adequate but overall I was disappointed and surprised. At least the... More

Like all Irving Big Stops this one does "home-cooked" style food. The menu has a good variety of items from sandwiches through to full meals. There is a menu for both kids and seniors (reduced portions for seniors). The service is usually fast and friendly and the meal is always well prepared. Bear in mind this is "truck stop" food...
