“Used to handling volume”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2014

I am reviewing this one but really applies to all the Irving Big Stop. These stops are a god sent for travellers in the Maritimes. Great place to get gas(usually a cent higher than other places) but the service compensates. The convenience stores are well stocked with all sorts of snacks and even emergency supplies. We've eaten at a few including this one in Deer Lake. The menu is comprehensive. These restaurants are well staffed so if you need in and out, just tell your waitress and you'll soon be on your way. The food has been fine, standard fare but served hot and you will always be asked if everything is fine. Great stop for the tourists whether you are travelling by car or motor home. The parking lots are huge and the bathrooms clean and well supplied.

“Stick with the traditional meals”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

Not much choice of restaurants in Deer Lake, but if you end up at the Irving Big Stop, stick with the traditional meals. Fish and chips, hot turkey sandwich, turkey dinner are probably the best bets.

“Good food reasonably priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

Right across the road from the Deer Lake Motel open late at night. Good selection of food and lots of it. Service was a bit slow but was busier than they expected. Seems everyone came at the same time

“Nothing Special but it is Deer Lake”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014 via mobile

There's a very limited selection of restaurants in Deer Lake so keeping that in mind, The Big Stop is probably as good as it gets. Service is good. The food average but not perfect. For example, the hashbrowns were the frozen variety and overcooked. The toast was of the "wonder bread" type. If we go again, we will try one of the local specials and see how that goes.
