I was there for Mother's day . They are suppose to be open until 8 o'clock but we were told that we could only have things that weren't done on the grill. I thought when a place in open until a certain time you could...order what you wanted . That upset me but I ordered something the food was good the service was excellent as usual. They need it be open until the time they say.More

There were a number of staff around, and the place was not busy, so we couldn't understand why the service was so pokey. Waiting for the menus, then for the food, we had ample time to explore the attached liquor store and convenience store. That...said, we did enjoy our meal, spicy tai chicken on taco strips, along with an order of sweet potato fries, both very tasty. It VERY handy to be able to tank up, have a good meal, pick up libation for the evening, and snacks for the car all in one stop, very time efficient!More

I wasn’t expecting gourmet fried chicken but I was expecting what I asked for - all dark meat and mashed potatoes with gravy on the side. Dish came with mostly breast meat, fried too long so dry as a bone, with gravy on the mashed...instead of on the side. When mentioned to the server, was met with a shrug. “Lightly breaded” fried chicken is actually heavily breaded and tasteless.More

If you've been to a Big Stop before you know what you're getting. Decent food, good service, and a relaxed atmosphere. Pretty good food for not much money, par for the course as far as Big Stops go, not many other places to eat in...Deer Lake outside of fast food joints, so if you're driving through this is as good a place as any to stop.More

We stopped here for food on our way back home and it was very packed at the door but we decided to waited it out. Soon the manager came and dealt with the overflow and we were sat at our table in no time!! Both...waitresses we had were very nice and polite. We ordered hot turkey suppers with fries dressing and gravy and it was amazing! The food came to our table so quick. We ordered and ran out in the car to check on the dog our dog and when we came back it was already on our table!! Would recommend!More

Arrived at 10:45am and at 12:00 we still hadn’t received our food. They served our tea upon ordering which went cold waiting for our meal. Only to find out after an hour that although the server took the order she never sent it to the...kitchen!!! The staff seated us in a booth section that would barely fit us, and a few of the staff looked dazed and confused. Get it together Irving!More

Just had pizza in their 241 restaurant. The pizza meal was good but the cashier was in anyway not. Rude, cold and unapologetic. I don’t think she was from a visible minority (for which I am) but she was a Canadian or a Newfie from...her attitude. If you are the manager of this restaurant reading this now, feel free to pm me instead of standing for this behaviour.More

Stopped in for gas, a few confection items and some adult beverages as we continued on our way to lodging in Gros Morne National Park. A very busy location with the restaurant drawing a lot of folks in. Lots of parking on the side/rear of...building, not much out front due to location of the gas bar. All guest attendants on site were friendly and helpful.More

Typical Big Stop with lots of tables and booths and noise. Not many eating and I would assume because the food is mediocre. The turkey soup was very nice but the pea soup was a flop. The meals were far from great.
