I had the salmon miso burger with a beet salad and my husband had the Reuben with sweet potato fries. My salmon was cooked absolutely perfect and was very delicious. The beet salad was awesome as well. My only complaint was the bun for the...salmon burger became quite soggy and fell apart after a bit but other than that it was very good. My husband enjoyed his meal as well. I didn’t try his sandwich but his sweet potato fries were perfectly crispy (I hate when you order them and they are soggy). Our waitress was friendly and attentive. All in all a great visit!More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us this feedback. We apprecaite it so much. We're so happy you enjoyed everything. That soggy burger bun is a hard one to combat with that tasty miso sauce.

This place was great. The staff was friendly, it had a good atmosphere and the service was good. The prices were very reasonable. The braised haddock was excellent. The fish and chips were a generous portion and grease free. The seafood casserole also very good.

We came to the restaurant and were sat at the back of the restaurant near the washroom. Waitress came and took our order and we waited for a long time. She brought the salad and it was wrong and we sent it back but only...when my husband took it to the main part of restaurant. It was a terrible experience.More

We chose to eat here based on the trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed. The pan fried haddock was excellent and very fresh as were the veggies that came with it.

We met up with a friend for lunch here. She's a local and told us we would enjoy it here. She was correct. It was walking distance from our Hotel so it was also very convenient.

Service was great! Beer was great ; Galaxy IPA! We ordered Greek chicken with tzatziki served over Greek salad. What we received was breaded chicken with stewed tomatoes over romaine lettuce with a couple of sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, feta cheese and one black olive....No dressing at all. Unimpressed.More

Sandra, I'm so sorry for this experience. Our greek chicken bites are a huge hit here; they've been rocking the menu for 8 years, so I'm very disappointed to hear you weren't impressed with this dish. I can't say for sure what happened on this...More

We breezed into town at the last minute and the waitstaff graciously made room for the 3 of us. We were blown away by the service and the food. The smoked tomato soup was perfection. We could have stopped there, but someone else ordered the...smokey chowder (I had my doubts) which was divine. I can't keep saying divine but the pan fried halibut was the best we had in the 2 weeks in Nova Scotia. The place was shortstaffed, as many are right now, but the folks working kept touching base and making sure we were ok for drinks and nibbles until the meal arrived. Don't miss this place!More

Not many restaurants are open on a Monday night in Antigonish, but the Brownstone would be a good choice any night of the week. It is a cozy homey space which plays soft rock and offers good relaxed service. I had the mac 'n cheese...with a salad while my dining companion had an Italian sausage and fennel pizza. Both were delicious and prices reasonable. We washed this down with excellent Nova Scotia craft beer. Dinners at neighbouring tables also seemed very happy with their choices (mussels, hamburger). Recommended for an affordable and pleasant night out!More

I’m not really sure. However I know they have the coconut cream pie, sticky toffee pudding, deep fried cheesecake... There’s so many it’s hard to remember. They’re all made from scratch too. Delicious!! :)
