Had their special of fish and chips. The portions were large but the fish ha a very fishy smell which usually indicates it is not fresh. The service was great and we go there quite a bit and it was our first lousy meal.

Stayed in arbutus ridge living and ate here several times. Great eggs benny on Sunday morning. Weekly dinner specials, best Is prime rib Thursday! Drinks are pricy!! $10 for a glass of wine. Noticed the servers like to wait on the tables of men (...there after tennis or golf), before our table was served.More

My husband and I had dinner on Thursday night for their roast beef dinner special.. The dinner was really quite good but the improvement was how wonderful their vegetables were.. broccoli, carrots and zucchini... nice.. So much nicer than just brussel sprouts. Hopefully they will...have a variety of vegetables at their brunch specials also in the future.More

I’ve favourably reviewed this restaurant in the past. However, not this time. We attended diners night, which is held the last Friday of the month. Usually we order from the regular menu because the specials have been disappointing. This past Friday I ordered the steak...sandwich and fries. The steak was perfectly cooked but the mushroom, caramelized onion, peppercorn sauce tasted soapy and the steak was full of gristle. This is the third time I’ve been served a dish with this soapy taste. Lately, meals in the Satellite Grille have been hit and miss, more miss than hit, which is really too bad. I’m giving the restaurant 3 stars because the staff is great and our group of diner friends are fun.More

My family and friends visited the restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner & were disappointed in both the service & quality of the food. After writing a poor review & speaking to management we were invited back to have them try & rectify this. I'm hear to...tell you that they did just that! The waitress was fantastic, & the food was very good that we ordered from the menu. Thank you for inviting us back. We will definitely return!More

We decided to try the Satelite Grill again, knowing it was under new ownership. We have enjoyed mea le here before, but this time we were very disappointed! We pre booked an early table. We had a nice table by the window with a wonderful...view. We ordered then waited about 15 minutes for our drinks which arrived with our appetizer. Our main courses were mediocre at best. The roast chicken was dried out and when mentioned the waitress said she would mention it to the chef. The pork schnitzel was huge but needed gravy or some sort of sauce. The “kennibec” fries appeared not to be from fresh cut potatoes as was the case before, but more like preformed frozen oven fries. We asked for them to be changed to a salad which was not a problem, however, the salad did not arrive until we were almost finished our meal. We had previewed the menu on line, but the wine we would have ordered and the dessert we were looking forward to, were no longer included on the dining room menu. This was a Saturday evening, there was a large party in the dining room and a function in the private dining room. However, it appeared that the wait staff was not adequate for the situation. To be clear our server did her best but was overwhelmed with patrons.More

Too many vegetables and very little seafood. Onion rings also over deep fried. Would not recommend these dishes. Golf course and restaurant otherwise very good.

Hi Jacquie, there is no crab in our seafood pasta, instead, we have salmon, halibut and shrimp.
