The first impression when you walk in is that it is a cute well decorated place with country feel. The food was good , as well... More

Fresh dinner roll, plenty of vegetables with the meal and the Atlantic salmon was excellent. The chocolate mousse cake was great,

I had just picked up a dear friend who had had a rather harrowing trip from the States and wanted a lovely place to sit and have lunch. It was 2pm, the sign said lunch served until 2:30. I confirmed upon entering that they were still serving lunch. We were the only diners. Service was unfriendly, the server seemed put... More

Service was very cool. Almost felt like it was an imposition to be seated. My husband had a tuna melt and did not enjoy it. I had a salad and it was good.

We wanted a gluten free supper for my daughter and this was one of the few restaurants offering gf items. The food was fantastic! The couple who run the restaurant are lovely. I highly recommend this place! Try the biscuits - they're delicious.

Service was good, food excellent. We both had salmon, cooked to perfection! We enjoyed our home made dessert and after dinner drinks. We will be back!

While in New Glasgow, our daughter-in-law and son made dinner reservations here. Had been once before, for lunch. Dining space is small but workable, service was professional, maybe a little stuffy? Food was great, serving size was fine.

We had a great experience dining here. We really enjoyed having the owners, who happen to be the chefs and servers and hosts and cashiers...they do it all. We enjoyed the meals, good selection to choose from. You could tell these dishes were home made, hot and fresh. The owners are lovely people and we spent some time after dinner... More

This is the second time we've eaten here. We hadn't planned on having to stay the night in New Glasgow but were happy to do so as it gave us a chance to return to this restaurant. The same couple operate the place and much of the menu looked familiar. In fact, I had the same pork medallions with mango... More

Just a nice place to go with friends, comfortable, not rushed to leave. Service was reasonable but would recommend reservations for six or more people. Often go with ten to twelve friends. Dinner is also very good and always go near Xmas. Highly recommend.
