We have been travelling to Cape Breton each week for the past 4 weeks. Each time we stopped at the Big Stop for supper. You would think it would be a no brainier to get your customers order correct, but not in our chase...the 1st time my husbands order was incorrect and cold..the 2nd, 3rd and 4th time my order was incorrect, late and one 2 occasions the waitress was rude. The restaurant isn't that big, so when your waitress go to another waitress to complain that you asked to move tables to a booth you can actually hear what they say. We are heading back to CB in a week but will be looking for a different restaurant. We are so surprised because when travelling we like going to the big stop. Good service, decent prices and clean place. Not this one. Rude waitress, cold and not the correct order and the tables are sticky and the added extras on the tables have not been washed.

We ate here simply because it was the only place in the little town we were passing through, and we didn't know when we'd see another restaurant. We had very low expectations, as we'd never seen an Irving Big Stop before, and figured that a restaurant attached to a gas station couldn't be very good. But we were wrong! The four of us loved our salads, the servers were all kind and helpful as could be, and the desserts were an amazing value!

The old "Big Stop" is gone and a new improved one has emerged. The food and service were at an unprecedented level. Highly recommended

There is nothing special about the Irving Big Stops, but they do what they do very well. The restaurants are scrambled with locals and those passing through. The staff was quick and polite. The food was up to par and with generous portions. The prices are very fair. Normally a wise place to stop.
