You have to review a restaurant on what it is trying to be. In this case, a "big stop", truck stop and place for families , sledders etc...It does it well. Service is friendly in a throwback sort of way. " Honey", " Sugar", " Dear". Hey, why not. Portions are large and they get what they do right, like... More

Short and sweet. We stopped by here twice for gas and once for lunch on our way to Quebec. The food was good and the staff were friendly. I felt my meal was a good value.

We ate here with family on Christmas Day. The restaurant was very nicely decorated, including a beautifully decorated Christmas tree in the centre of the restaurant, and the staff were outfitted in Christmas hats, jewellery, etc. It was nice to see them all in the Christmas spirit. The service was very good. We had the turkey dinner with all the... More

Quick and friendly service, prices reasonable and good menu selection. Located on Paul Martin Drive just off Hwy 17 for easy access. Lots of room as they were able to easily accommodate our large group of 35 people without a reservation. Classic truck stop fare. If staying in the area or just passing through. It is also located near the... More

The food is Excellent. The staff is great and the prices are very fair. The only issue I have is the wait times to be seated. We have gone to this place many times, so the one thing I will suggest is for you to go before the usual breakfast, or lunch or supper hour begins so that you can... More

We were excited to see an Irving Big Stop in Ontario. The food in their Maritime locations is first rate and always part of a road trip. Tried the turkey and stuffing burger, it was OK but not worth going out of your way for. About the same for the rest of our meal, to be honest we had a... More

Friday night was all you can eat fish and chips which we did not have but plenty of people were the fish looked good lightly battered. Staff is friendly and my cup... More
