Although the restaurant is now closed as of a month ago, it was always pricey considering the quality, taste, and portion sizes. The servers seemed high school in mentality while the waiting time was always about a half hour, even when it wasn't busy.

First, it doesn't open until 11am which seems odd to me for a place that's has a brunch menu. The menu is brief, they were unable to substitute sausage for the bacon (because they don't have sausage), they didn't have tomato juice (despite the fact...More

On arrival there was no one to seat us, yet it wasn't busy. Reception desk was very messy and attendant (eventually) had to scramble through the pile to find menu's etc. The menu was very limited, and expensive! Drink prices were way over the top,...More

I don't understand why the prices are so high, the food isn't that great in my opinion, the restaurant is loud and not very private atmosphere for visiting with friends or family. I will not be returning.

I have had many meals at Earl's in various locations over the years and certainly can't recall all I've eaten. What does stand out is the Clam Chowder which I have every time I'm there. It is absolutely the best EVER. Nanaimo is the closest...More

A recent lunch at Earls was very tasty, brought by a very pleasant server, and overall our experience was very nice. Mushroom soup definitely recommended (a daily special item)! This hasn't to do with the calibre of the service or the meal, but my lfriend...More

My son and I recently visited Earls Restaurant in Nanaimo. We were provided with a seat very quickly and had choices of inside, outside, in the shade, or in the sun. Service was great and food arrived exceptionally quickly.

Had lunch on the patio of Earl's recently and, apart from traffic noise, it was a very pleasant experience. Their chicken/brie/fig sandwich is to die for. Hadn't planned on eating the accompanying French fries, but they were delicious and it didn't take long to make...More
