“Great food and friendly folks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

Great Atmosphere and food. The same owners also own and run the bar next door - the RedBird. We enjoyed a drink after dinner and a great discussion of scotch.

“The Wooden Hog”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Located on Prince Street in Truro, Nova Scotia, this little restaurant offers home cooking, with a daily freshly made soup. The cream of broccoli has to be the best tasting soup I ever ate. The menu is not extensive; however, everything on it is great to eat. Premises are clean, service is excellent! I have eaten lunch & dinner there several times and it is my choice place whenever I am in the area.

“Good food & atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Eight of us ate here on a Saturday night just before the summer season was i full swing. It was not busy. We got excellent service from the (very) young waitress. The manager helped us out with the wine and beer selection. One of our party asked about an item that was not on the menu, and they graciously prepared it for him. The service was friendly, the food very good. From the flyers and description of the establishmeent, one might not know they serve full meals - it is called a dessert and coffee shop. The place was clean and well maintained. We did not get a chance to check out the whisky bar attached to the restaurant. We were glad we chose the Wooden Hog. Check out the sculpture over the bar - it explains the name.

“Nice spot in Truro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

I was recently visiting Truro with friends who were performing at the Marigold Cultural Centre. We needed to grab a quick supper before the performance so stopped in at the Wooden Hog. Eight of us came through the door and our waitress, Lucy, managed to get our drinks, food and bills to us before we had to scramble out the door. She was smiling the whole time and provided a prompt response to any of our requests. Most of us had appetizers so that we didn't have to wait too long. My friend and I shared the Neptune Mushrooms and the Chicken Quesadilla. Both were tasty although there weren't many mushrooms in the Neptune dish. Seems like a wonderful place to stop in for lunch or supper. If I'm ever back in Truro I will definitely stop in again.
