Pre-covid restrictions with inside dining, had the liver and onions which was delicious, perfectly cooked with the right amount of bacon and liver slices. Not to everyones taste but whenever I get the opportunity I order it. I also ordered the Saturday take out Chinese...special which turned out very well and will order it again. Not much of an atmosphere but makes up for it in its excellent food.More

We were walking by and a local raved about the food saying he ate there every day. We tried it and YUM, it was all so good. Next time I leave room to try the yummy-looking home-baked pies! Thanks!

We went about 20 minutes out of our way to try this restaurant. Came in to order take out and there were two customers in the restaurant. The waitress took my order, while I was waiting about 8 other people came in. I watched almost...all of them get served and receive their food, finally the waitress approached me and asked what I ordered ???? are you kidding me !! I asked what was going on and was told that they lost my order This is a 25 seat restaurant with three staff, how many brain cells do you need to realize that you have served all the other clients except me. I received a very slim attempt at an apology What a terrible way to run a business We will never go backMore

After wandering around Chemainus with two 12 year old boys we stumbled upon this retro restaurant with an extensive menu. The boys inhaled a chicken quesadilla and chicken alfredo. The adults each ordered the war wonton. We shared a homemade blackberry pie and purchased blackberry...jam to take home. Everything was delicious and great value. The owner who served us was friendly and engaging. The boys immediately said we must rate this restaurant 5 stars and we agree....top notch if looking to please multiple tastes on a budget.More

It's where the locals eat so it has to be good. I've been going for years. It was one of my kids favorite places when she was young.

This restaurant is one of our go to places in the Cowichan Valley. The food is consistently good and the prices are very reasonable.
