Our lunch was excellent, terrific service, nice quiet atmosphere. It was our first time here and we will definitely come back. Best seafood chowder I have ever had. Delicious focaccia sandwich as well. Look forward to coming for dinner sometime.

The salad was good the meat poorly executed. The seafood was like eating food from the freezer. I was quite disappointed in the lack of reasonably priced meals. This is an old place trying to keep up with the newer places that provide steak and...More

I had heard many opinions about this restaurant and after years, decided to take visiting family for dinner. The decor made me smile,as it was frozen in the 70's, dark and heavy decor with no natural light. It was a very stormy night, so the...More

I used to frequent this restaurant 25+ years ago and it was amazing then. I moved back to Nanaimo and went there the other night. It is still, by far, the best restaurant in this city. There is a welcoming comfortable atmosphere with old school...More
