“Boss loves it here”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

My boss comes Down from Halifax once a month and we always eat here. Together we have tried so many different items off the meun. And we both agree this is the best restaurant in town. We ate at the rest before we sent on the brownstone as our meeting spot.

“Looks pretty. Food could use some improvement”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

I like the Brownstone. It is lovely. I especially love sitting out on the veranda. The waitstaff is friendly - though undertrained. This is the second time we ordered wine and they plunked it on the table with no tasting or pouring. The mark-up for wine is the best in town though. Two sandwiches and a bottle of wine cost us $70. The food looks great. It tastes okay. But I really keep hoping it will rise to the occasion, but it never does. It is just mediocre. Such a shame.

“A Summer Dinner Out”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

A very nice place to eat great decor and option to eat outdoors . Seared shrimp were a great starter. The spinach salad with my meal fantastic. But the chicken in both mine and my wife mealy was salted hard as in difficult to eat.. The staff was made aware of the issue. But to no solution for it, as in discount or offer of free desert. The desert was very good German apple cake with a nice caramel sauce. Also not sure what the red wine was as we were not told but it was good. Will go back again some day to try other menu items but not for a while. Stay away from the salty chicken.!!

“Great Food! Great Service!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

This is a restaurant with a very interesting menu. We both enjoyed our meals to the last bite. The food was unique and fresh. The service was great, we didn't have a reservation but they still managed to get us a table. (Saturday nights you may want to call ahead if you are hoping for a prime location).
They have a great patio but it is small. If I am ever back in Antigonish or driving to Cape Breton or just near by I will be back!
