Esquire Restaurant

Great food at affordable prices. This landmark diner on the Bedford Highway, across from Clearwater, is a local favourite. We offer fast, friendly service and great home-cooked meals. Specialties include seafood chowder, lobster sandwiches, assorted dinner platters, and desserts.

Our chowder made us famous. Our landmark sign made us a legend.

Our service made us family.

True North Diner


The True North Diner offers a bright, clean 1950′s style dining experience. Our food is prepared from fresh ingredients. We have virtually no frozen products and everything is cooked on the premises.  All our meats are prepared in-house, except for our delicious hotdogs.  We serve fresh hamburger from local beef, real roasted turkey, Diner-baked ham, fresh-cut fries, and fish from local waters. Even our hamburger buns are baked fresh in a local bakery especially for us.
