“Above Average Meal Saves the Day”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

On a recent drive my husband & I stopped in here for the view & lunch. There was a large table of local walk ins on the patio, their order already in. Then a couple with a child came in after us. The Server wearing inappropriate stretch gym wear pants got our order & drinks, while twice calling me "honey" :( Anyway ... We waited over 30 mins after our orders were taken & the people with the child got their food 10 mins before we got ours. ?? During this time the door was open with a fresh sea breeze blowing in the open dinning room to the open patio. But, no flies in sight. The dinning room is comfortable enough but, a bit rundown & old fashioned country in the details. Sad because this space has such great design potential for more modern & finer dinning.
However, The View is great & the Quinoa & herb coated Grilled Haddock with (server) Mariam's Greek salad was Fantastic! It fit my new Gluten free diet & was fresh & delicious. My husband got the Scollops & fries & was really impressed too. A Large portion of Sea ones lightly breaded with crispy fries. We loved our coleslaw which was homemade too. We left satisfied in a very tummy yummy way close to 3 pm. My husband laughs but, wish I wasn't also left with the image of those ...Not For Work in the Public Pants! Or Just stay in the kitchen Mariam, making tasty food :) & I'm not your Honey, watch the terms you use with customers. This Business could be off the rails busy with some modern updating, fresh paint & more business like service & attitude cause, the food was Great & Saved our Day.

“kinda gross”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

Take a trip to wash hands before eating instead of using your hand sanitizer in your car. The washroom has all one need for take out supplies which i may add is not covered. I just needed to use facilities after i ate to proceed on our trip. Wish i hadnt!!!!

“Food not bad, Service soso”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

Ate at this place as it was not too far from the hotel we were staying at. I had the fish and chips which was pretty good. Others who had the chicken loved it. The seafood chowder though was disappointing, it was mostly potatoes and not enough seafood.

The server, who could well be the owner wasn't quite that friendly that day. Actually he was quite curt. Some found him to be rude and wanted to walk out. But we did have our meal there. On our way out, he did say thank you and have a nice evening to me. Maybe he was having a bad day, or just didn't like some people in our group or was agitated when he had to repeat something a few times.
There were 15 of us.

“Affordable decent food. No A/C dining. Lots of flies.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013 via mobile

First of all, we liked the owner. Mo was very personably. The food was descent and reasonably price. We got unlucky to dine there on a 90F day. Eating in a hot dining room with an open-concept kitchen focusing on pizza and fried food was a challenge. Sharing food with lots of buzzing black flies also spoils ones appetize.

Having said that, we ordered spicy wings, garlic fingers with bacon bits and grill scallops. The food was tasty. We thought the garlic fingers (aka garlic pizza) would have been better without the bacon bits. We would recommend this place for takeout if you are looking for standard pizza joint with affordable decent food.

“Excellent food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2013

We've been eating at Mo's off and on for more than 3 years, with never a complaint. My favorite is the pizza. Contrary to the above complaint, the sauce is excellent. Last year, on FaceBook, I declared it to be the best pizza in mainland Nova Scotia (qualified by the fact that Napoli Pizza in Sydney, Cape Breton, is the best in all NS.)
