This restaurant has been my favorite for breakfasts in Pembroke since the 90's . If you want a Big Breakfast...Come to Irving Big Stop. The breakfast, no matter what you order comes in massive quantities and portions. More than enough to start a day or month for that matter. I highly recommend it.

You have to review a restaurant on what it is trying to be. In this case, a "big stop", truck stop and place for families , sledders etc...It does it well. Service is friendly in a throwback sort of way. " Honey", " Sugar", " Dear". Hey, why not. Portions are large and they get what they do right, like... More

Short and sweet. We stopped by here twice for gas and once for lunch on our way to Quebec. The food was good and the staff were friendly. I felt my meal was a good value.

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. The service was very good. We had the turkey dinner with all the... More

It is also located near the... More

The food is Excellent. The staff is great and the prices are very fair. The only issue I have is the wait times to be seated. We have gone to this place many times, so the one thing I will suggest is for you to go before the usual breakfast, or lunch or supper hour begins so that you can... More
