I received some Big Stop coupons via the mail so decided to check out the offered specials. I had the Clubhouse Plate & a friend had the Big Breakfast. Imagine our faces when the server brought the Big Breakfast on a large platter plus another plate with pancakes. The platter contained scrambled eggs, 6 slices of toast, hash browns, sausages,...

I went here on a Sunday morning, and there were a few people in the restaurant. We waited about five mins to be seated, despite there being a vast majority of tables empty. The servers were all busy continually, and seemed very friendly. The menus and drinks were quick to come after we were seated, and orders were taken promptly.... More

Stopped in off the highway for gas, and smelled the restaurant. Best clubhouse sandwich I have had in a long time

We have been to the Irving Truck Stop here in Truro Heights a number of times. For the most part we have been satisfied with our orders. Our biggest complaint if we were asked would be that the girls don't come back to give us hot coffee and ours is gone before our meal is, but in their defense we... More

The waitresses are very friendly and the portions of food are good. We eat here often! I had the Lobster Roll plater and it is delicious. I also love the potato skins. We eat here often because not only is the food good but the waitress make you feel welcome.

On Monday August 1/2016 I had my second and last bad meal in the past month. Service was terribly slow and the meal went to the garbage, it was not edible. My friend complained about his meal the entire drive home. I have been going here for years but there has been a downhill slide for the last few visits.... More

We stopped at the Big Stop on the way to PEI. We ordered the pancakes and the classic breakfast. Both were very good. Service was average and the the time from ordering to service was a bit too long.

We got into the line thinking it wouldn't take very long, as I there were 9 tables empty. The booth that we were seated at, the bench seat was all scratched & torn up and very uncomfortable. The waitress arrived at our table and was less than friendly she took our order and other people serviced it when the meal... More

Tried the "Big Breakfast" served all day, 3 eggs, bacon, sausage, baloney, with homefries, plus 3 slices of toast and a large pancake. Nothing fancy, but sure a filling meal for the hungry traveler.
