Staying at the hotel I had both breakfast and dinner here on two different stays. Great selection of fine food for dinner. Breakfast here is how you want to start your day. Worth the stop.

Having recently arrived in the Maritimes, we were looking forward to eating seafood and decided to eat the battered haddock and chips. The chips were very good, crispy and not oversalted. However, the haddock was overcooked and dry. We ate our first piece of haddock,...More

The restaurant is at the front of a motel. The ambience is, well, OK but nothing special. It goes without saying but I will say it anyway: this is Nova Scotia, stick with the seafood (which we did). The starter of seafood chowder was excellent....More

Tried out this restaurant as it was right beside our hotel, the Maritime Inn in Antigonish. The meal was very good at a very reasonable price. Service was very good as well. Liked it well enough that we went back a second time.

Restaurant opens st 7 with full menu. Service is excellent. We ordered bacon, one egg and home fries, no toast. We were charged for the breakfast special minus charges for one egg and toast. Wow. Very good deal and good tasting.
