Restaurant details

My husband and I stopped in here for dinner on9-19-14. I wasn't real hungry. My husband ordered the Lasagna with salad for $16.95. Waiter asked what I wanted, I told him I was just going to take a few bites of my husbands lasagna. He then told me, he was gonna have to charge ME for the salad bar. I told him I didn't want the salad bar. He said he had to charge me anyway. I said "what are you talking about" He said if my husband and I shared, he would have to charge me. lol I said I am eating some of his lasagna, IM NOT EATING THE SALAD BAR... Finally got that straight!!! Anyways, lasagna was average. Ordered the carrot cake for dessert at $5.29 per slice. I wasn't too thrilled with it. I would NOT recommend the carrot cake for sure.

Stopped here say morning for breakfast. Not only we couldn't get table as according to staff member they had to set up one when place was more then half empty. Staff member was not too polite so we walked out and this was between 7 and 7:30 and we phoned night before and was told they were open a 5. If you have lots of time stop otherwise go somewhere else where you get better service

Stopped for breakfast - eggs and sausage were good. Home fries were cut potatoes cooked on grill not deep fried cubes. The bacon however was tough and very salty. Coffee is second cup and it was good as well.

The place is a little run down and the lot is full of pot holes, very dusty - put windows or top up.

A little pricey - as stated in a previous review $10.50 for breakfast including tax. $6.99 for the meal, coffee was extra.

My meal was fine, my wife had the bacon. Not the best but better than fast food or driving around looking for a place.

Was disappointed in the broken eggs...one I can understand, all of them means they don't care. Place is clean, change lots since I was here 20 years ago. I would try them again but I was disappointed

Don't let the number of trucks in the parking lot make you think this is a great place to dine - they're only there because of a lack of other local truck stop options.

Food Is mediocre at best, and priced out of line with reality. Fuel prices are also nothing special, so don't stop here expecting a deal on fuel just because its a truck stop.

The building is in need of a lot of TLC. Bathrooms are run down and frequently dirty, as is much of the rest of the building - accordingly, one must wonder whay condition the kitchen is in.

The parking lot has so many craters that even getting parked is an adventure, and the lack of asphalt in much of the truck areas means you have a better than average chance of getting coated in dust as you exit your car.

A quick drive into Bowmanville or Courtice will yield much better options. Drive on past, unless you're driving something so big that you need the space to park.
