“Good Filling Meal”

Island View Family Restaurant
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We stopped at the Island View Restaurant during a scenic drive from Bridgewater.

It is a normal diner type restaurant with a few picnic tables outside.

Service was quick and friendly. We ordered the chicken fingers and fries, Island View Burger, Club House and Cactus Cuts. The Cactus Cuts were very tasty with a little zing in the spice. The Club was perfect, real turkey on homemade whole wheat bread. My son really really enjoyed the burger, couldn't even fit a piece of the club in after eating it! Chicken Fingers and Fries we good as well.

The portions were excellent. Not too often my son can't clean a plate.

The workers were friendly, helpful and very attentive to all of the customers in the restaurant while we were there.

The prices were reasonable as well. Very enjoyable meal.

We were down the shore for a hike, but first looked for a spot with ice cream cones. We came across the Island View Family Restaurant. Not only did they have a great selection of ice cream, and generous portions, they had our favorite flavour - Privateer's Bounty, swirls of licorice and caramel in a vanilla base, AWESOME to say the least.

Before we had our ice cream cones, we sat down in their simple but bright and homey little restaurant for a bite of lunch. I had home made split pea and ham soup, DELICIOUS! When was the last time you found that at a restaurant? My friend had a club sandwich on bread baked on site, another TASTY TREAT!

This place is a great find. It's not fancy, but very enjoyable. Check it out!

Service is hit or miss, but the cracker crumb fish and chips are delicious!
