Great little restaurant off the highway worth giving a try. Food: had haddock and fries. Was hot and fast and good portion of fish that I didn't expect for the price. Atmosphere: a little dated but definitely showcased the mom and pop feel in rural Nova Scotia. Was clean and organized. Felt local. Service: was fast and friendly and the... More

I guess I just have an affection for this place having first stopped here when I was really young - which is probably about as long as they've been in business. So I keep coming back. Been a few years since our last visit - and it now looks like they are going to be on the old road as... More

I really hate to give this place a bad rating because it's a landmark, but over the years their prices have increased, the decor hasn't changed since I was in University and the quality has declined. Now that the highway bypasses them completely I'm afraid if they don't change they'll be gone, which is sad. Thin over-cooked steaks, canned veggies... More

Had lunch with with two others and we really enjoyed the meal. Three different dishes and we were all very happy with them. Servers were efficient and food came to the table quick. Ambiance was simple but very clean. Definitely recommend this place.

we have eaten at Mother Webbs many, many times over the years. the steaks are always great, service is alway very fast and you are always greeted at the door and seated. My only observation is that the price keeps rising but the amount of food on the plates keeps getting smaller.

My top 3 items to try, #1 Onion Rings (with alittle Steak spice sprinkled on them!). #2... More

This is a popular spot to stop for a quick bite to eat, it's right on the highway and easy accessable parking. Food is pretty good, know for their steaks and onion rings....but ribs are pretty darn good...kind of a pub style place...not fancy but always a stop when going through Cape Breton

This restaurant serves comfort foods and have been doing it for 50 years which is amazing in the restaurant business. The menu has a large variety of items from burgers to seafood. The staff is helpful, and very friendly.

If you're a meat-lover, you'll be happy with it. The service was friendly and prompt, considering the large crowd, and that I was a woman dining alone and not buying liquor. The "atmosphere" was noisy due to the many customers during a later dinner hour (one large table of male highway workers was too loud for the size of the... More
