We ate here with family on Christmas Day. The restaurant was very nicely decorated, including a beautifully decorated Christmas tree in the centre of the restaurant, and the staff were outfitted in Christmas hats, jewellery, etc. It was nice to see them all in the Christmas spirit.

It is also located near the... More

We were excited to see an Irving Big Stop in Ontario. The food in their Maritime locations is first rate and always part of a road trip. Tried the turkey and stuffing burger, it was OK but not worth going out of your way for. About the same for the rest of our meal, to be honest we had a... More
