This restaurant just happened to be across the street from the motel where we stayed. It was close to closing, but we decided to give it a try anyway. Good choice. The steak was great. The Haddock fish was as well. Try the seafood chowder. Very tasty. A good dining experience overall. Warning: they will try to up sell and... More

I was so full when I left! Everything is good. I have only been here a couple of times on my travels but each time I feel I am coming home for a good supper. Very friendly and the kids love the kids choices too. When going to Cape Breton you must stop here at least once.

This place has been around for years and seems to be hanging in there. I have had steaks here a few times and they have always been quite good . The service is excellent and the hostess very nice. My son and I pop in here on our way to Cape Breton now and then he likes it also.

We stopped on our way through with family and the place was jammed packed at 2 pm on the afternoon. The food is ok, but their service is 1st class and spit on. You won't get a great meal, however it is decent accompanied by great service.

I have eaten here on numerous occasions. I always note the following: the service is lightning fast, the food is always tasty, the waitresses are friendly, but are always trying to up sell and it seems like they are robotic in their interaction. This is a testament to the speed of service, but seems a little impersonal. Always a great... More

When they say "instant service", they really aren't kidding. They had us in and out of there in 40 minutes. I was impressed!

Always clean, fast, fresh. Great service, food is cooked to order and the one time I ever had a mistake in an order it was fixed right away. Highly recommended if steak is on your mind!

An informal steakhouse. Mother Webb's is at Exit #35, Trans-Canada Highway, 4788 Highway #104. Open daily from 11 am - 10 pm. Close to Mother Webb's is a general store, a motel, and gas stations.

That reputation is a priority for the friendly well-trained staff. The same family owners are still hands-on.
