“IRVING BIG STOP in Digby, NS. AVOID.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

The food was ice cold, the chairs dirty , the carpet disgusting and the service non existent. We waited 8 minutes for menus while our server , WENDY, who appeared to be tired, was trying to catch a nap on the cooler rather than wait on customers. No coffee refills and cold food despite my request that she ask the cook to make sure my sandwich was super hot. Wendy woke up long enough to bring the bill. KC Irving took pride in his chain of eating establishments and would not be happy and I won't be back.

“terrible and service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2010

Stopped here while on family vacation 10 of us. Ordered from the menu waitress was not at all friendly was conplaning to another employee about their jobs. The food was cold and hamburgers were dried up buns were cold. Sent the food back and it was microwaved and the same meals delivered to us. High prices for microwave dinners. Table next to use three gentlemen sent their's back because it was cold also. Waited a long time to get it should have been hot. Was offered a free dessert after it was only 3 of us left the others have already gone to the van. All in all was a terrible experience. The three gentlemen at the table beside us was also not happy. Food was not eaten but had to pay full price feel as if we should be compensated.

“Typical Truck Stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2010

Irving Big Stops are known for their home cooked meals.
The service is average. Sharon is an excellent waitress! Try to get her and your experience will be wonderful.
Breakfast is great but a little over priced.
Lunch & Dinner menus are the same - everything from a hot turkey sandwich to haddock (which is frozen, not fresh) and fries. Burgers are fantastic and the pie is homemade.
Great milkshakes!
The price is average, but priced high for Digby. I would avoid going here and try local gem Josie's Place instead - where you are getting the same food at considerably lower prices. Josie's also offers local fresh fish from Digby.
Alcohol not served - if you are looking for somewhere that serves drinks head downtown.
