“Who needs an advertising budget?”

Hmm...well established diner alongside busy highway...always busy...no advertising...
There used to be a lot more of these little diners, I'm sure, that operated by word-of-mouth from truckers, travellers, and locals. It is in an enviable location, at the point where the 90 km/h 103 turns to a 100 km/h highway, just prior to the last unrestricted exit to Bridgewater via Hebbville. Most of these such little diners would have been established alongside main thoroughfares, before the proliferation of larger and more recognizable franchises. This one has survived and thrived by offering good food at decent prices, without needing to alter that basic principle.
I used to eat there a lot when work necessitated a quick break from the highway. I had always been satisfied with the food and the service, even at the busiest of times. And believe me, there are many busy times, judging by the full parking lot!
This place does it right, simply put. I'm not sure when my next meal will take me there, but I know what to expect from it. I consider that comfort food.

“Great Place to Eat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

Anytime we travel between Yarmouth & Halifax,we stop to eat at the Blarney Stone. Our Favourite is their fried clams which are the best on the South Shore. We have also had their Fish & Fries & scallops,all which were cooked to perfection & delicious. Whether it is a simple seafood chowder or a full meal,the food is always fresh & hot when it is served.
Both my brother & son who come home in the fall or at Christmastime,try to get their flights so they can get some fried clams or haddock at the Blarney Stone. We have a saying in our family that "it is against the law not to stop at the Blarney Stone". The staff are always most welcoming & have a way of making their customers feel special.

“The best reataurant in Bridgewater Area!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

The Blarney Stone restaurant is one of my husband and my favourite places to eat around the Bridgewater area. The food is delicious, you certainly get your money worth, and staff are so friendly, couldn't ask for better service. I would recomnend this place to eat if you are in the area for sure. They have the best Fish & Chips and Haddock Chowder!!!! You ask when did you visit, we visited there numerous times but couldn't put that as it wouldn't allow.

“Always a great meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

We eat at the Blarney Stone Restaurant a lot and for good reason. Great food and great staff! We're NEVER disappointed with the food or service. We love the wraps, hot sandwiches, clams and fish but our most recent favourite is the fried chicken and chips! Yummy!
