Well the food was good after nearly an hour of waiting but the waitress should not be texting on their phones when they are working! Also they should get the hint when someone is holding up an empty glass that maybe they want a refill!

Food selection was good, service reasonably fast and definitely Newfie friendly. The location of this restaurant cannot be any better for travellers, easy access whether north, east or southbound. We ate here both supper and breakfast the next morning and found the service great both times.

My parents stayed in the Deer Lake Motel across the road and were quite happy with their stay.

The service was incredibly slow! After waiting 55 minutes from the time we got in until we got our order 3 out of the 5 orders were wrong. The waitress did not offer to replace the refund the order. Getting called darling and sweetheart by a teenager get a bit much as well.

Ate lunch one day and dinner another & were impressed both times by the quality of the food and the portions. Good value for the money too. Where else can you get fresh steamed Mussels on the highway!! Just note that it's home cooked so it takes a while - not a good idea if you're in a hurry but if you have the time, well worth the wait!

We stopped here for lunch after six hours of driving appreciating a place to stop and relax for awhile before continuing up. The place is always hopping and so, the service was a bit slow at times and it was hard to attract the attention of the wait staff. There were out of a key item on my first choice from the summer menu but I went ahead and ordered it anyway. The pea soup was decent and had a nice local touch of a dumpling. The burger without the peppers was a tad boring. The French fries were middle of the road. There is supposed to be free wireless but we couldn't access the network for some reason on that day (we have on others). It's convenient and has a reasonably broad menu but expect road trip food at its average.
