“Meal before flight”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

We had to eat light and fast, so ordered Peasoup/Dumpling, and a western sandwich for my husband. VERY busy place and had to wait a little longer than we hoped. But food is delicious.

“Good food service at its worst”
Reviewed 28 April 2013 via mobile

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!

“Good location on the TCH”
Reviewed 2 February 2013

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.

“Terrible Service”
Reviewed 7 October 2012

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.

“Better than you'd expect from a truck stop”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

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!
