I've only been here a few of times but I was always satisfied. Prices were reasonable. Food was good. Service was always very good. No complaints.

We've never gone wrong while dining here. It's quick, comfortable, quirky and interesting. It's basically a hotel dining restaurant but is frequented by locals so it has a little something extra. Most meals come with homemade hummus and chips and those little extras help it stand out.

We recently stayed a couple of nights at the Claymore and had one dinner and two breakfasts here. The atmosphere was nice - waitress attentive and pleasant and food reasonable.

After waiting for 45 minutes for our meal, it was cold and tasteless. Couldn't even eat it, the waitress took it back and didn't charge us, which was nice. But, I wouldn't bother going here again.

I am here for lunch and the Atlantic haddock is nicely cut in 3 small fillets with a small salad. I have a choice of salad and choose the green salad. This is a great light meal for those who want to experience the well-known Atlantic seafood at reasonable prices.

I had spent the night in Antigonish at a motel on the highway that served only a meager Continental breakfast and I was in the mood for ham & eggs and a good cup of "Joe". I decided to try Justamere based on Trip Advisor reviews. My "junior Justamere special" was delicious! I was able to get it with homemade... More

Went here with a local who said it's his favourite spot in town. It definitely didn't disappoint. There was only one other couple in the restaurant, as we were there about an hour before the supper rush. We were served relatively quickly, and our server was warm and accommodating, checking in several times over the course of the meal. I... More
