I was staying at the Days Inn for a business trip. I had a breakfast, a lunch, and a dinner here in that time. The prices were great, the food was great, and the service was great (aside from one waitress who obviously took a disliking to me, for some reason). I would eat there again, no hesitation.

I had the fisherman's feast and could only eat a bit of the cod and the fries because the salmon, scallops, and shrimp, were so over cooked. We had to wait 2 hours to get our food and were not impressed when it arrived. My friend's meals were a little better but they stuck with burgers and chicken fingers. We... More

I've only been here once and I probably won't be back again. Had breakfast, it was alright. Egg's were swimming in grease. Overall the service was good and quick, but having a waitress throw forks, knives, spoons, placemats, and menus at you all at one time is a little bit overwhelming (Yes, literally, threw). The waitress also called us hookers-... More

It's a "hit or miss" meal. Great menu but it depends on who is in the kitchen. I have had great meals there, then ordered the same thing on another visit and it's "not so good".

I have been in this restaurant a number of times over the last few years and have never been disappointed in the quality of the food served there. Selection is quite good and the staff is very friendly.

Business dinner so I didnt have a choice. Friday night special is chicken wings, $.50 cent per wing. I ordered the medium temp wings and found myself asking the waitress... "Is it me or do these wings taste like tomato soup?"... Her response "yea our sauce is a tomato soup base". I think at this point enough has been said.... More

If you ask around locals will tell you this is the best place to eat in Stephenville. However, you may want to reconsider. For a nearly empty Tuesday night it took well over 10 min to be seated, another 15 to get a drink and then when the order came the entrée and sides were not correct. When I asked... More

So I know I am in a small town, and I don't expect too much. (This attitude often leads to me to delightful surprises.) Still, though, the meal at this place was disappointing, although the service was exceptional. I had a "Thai stirfry" which came, inexplicably, with garlic bread. Sauce was ho-hum, there weren't many vegetables, and the pasta was... More

I disliked that the cook did not cook my eggs the way I requested them even though the waiter relayed mt message about the way I wanted them.

I've been here several times, and every time I have been here the food hasn't been that great. Service is hit or miss, depending on the girl you end up with serving you. It's WAY over priced for what you get. Don't bother with this place. It's not worth your time or money
