I love this restaurant and have visited many times over the years. I love the fish and chips. Not too bready, fresh haddock, and the option for sweet potatoe fries with a chipotle mayonaise. The local servers are very welcoming and unpretentious which I love....I have sat in some fancy dining over my lifetime but always prefer the good honest food and good honest service I find here!!! Thank you!!!More

We purchased land close by so have frequented this restaurant many times and have not once been disappointed. We have tried many items on the menu and all were great. The staff is always friendly and the meals are hot.

We were in the area and heard good things about the Acorn Restaurant so decided to stop for a late lunch. Even though it was busy we were seated promptly. The menu contained a good selection of diner food, and we were informed of the...daily special of a double burger (with mushrooms and Swiss cheese) platter. Hubby opted for this and I got a single burger (with mushrooms and mozzarella) platter. The burgers were homemade, and served with fries and coleslaw. Everything was cooked perfectly, not at all greasy, and portions were generous. Prices were on par with similar type restaurants. We will definitely be back!More

We were hungry and had driven past this little roadside restaurant so many times, we just had to stop and are we ever glad we did. WE have a new favourite. My test club sandwich was 5 stars, and we find they believe in fresh...cooked turkey every day . How can you not love a restaurant like that. Dessert? They have a dreamy local cheesecake variation that is quite delicious, and the pies look great too. We’ll be back !More

Driving home when dinner time rolled by we decided to stop at The Acorn..our first time after driving by for years...well worth the stop..clean .. great service friendly knowledgeable serving staff on a very busy evening.. Went for the sandwiches..a Reuben and a Turkey Club..Caesar...salad as my side.. delicious.. but the best was saved for last a lemon cheesecake that in all actuality was part cheesecake and part lemon meringue..graham cracker crust was perfect.. now rolling home full and content.. we will be back for more of that pieMore

Have driven by for years but never stopped. It's right the Kings Landing exit off of the Trans Canada Highway. This restaurant was amazing. Nothing fancy but absolutely spotless, great wait staff, and excellent food. This is now our stop to and from the US.

Wonderful family restaurant along busy section of highway.Clean Washrooms, fuel and snacks readily available. Visited here several times over the years, however on this occasion it was hot outside and the air conditioning was on high! I noticed that many others were seeking jackets and...sweaters from their vehicle to combat the very cold air being provided by the air conditioning. This COLD atmosphere also contributes to a cold meal in no time once it is served. I will return but my wife will not.More

My husband and I stopped by this restaurant off the highway on our way to Nova Scotia. They advertised lobster rolls and my husband ordered 2 of them to go and paid $34.00 for them. When we opened the take out container, all there was...was 2 small toasted hot dog buns full of lettuce in the middle with a couple of pieces of lobster on the top. Bland, no dressing or anything. You call that lobster rolls? It was so upsetting to pay $34.00 for something that wasn't even worth a $1. I would have given this restaurant a 0 but it wasn't a choice.More
