Haven’t been to Granville Island in a while and we’re were looking for a nice place to experience some good oysters. We’d been to a restaurant in the same location many years ago so weren’t sure but thought we’d give it try. Well, what a...great experience it was. Delicious oysters, mussels, prawn appie, fresh salad and Happy Hour drinks. Food and service were great and the location on the island is a treat!More

So went yesterday and got the king crab and it rocked my world. Went back today and got two orders of the maple shrimp and the mussels. Easily the best i've ever had. I cleaned the plate as best I could without licking it. You...have to go here i'm not even kidding. I love seafood and would recommend this place on my life. Unrelated but it has really good gluten free options without any sort of compromise to taste.More

On our last east family trip, we stopped here for a great, seafood happy hour and drinks! The drinks were delicious and the food was well prepared and tasty. I would recommend the fish and chips and the mussels from the happy hour menu. The...service was fantastic.More

Went for a family dinner with 8 people, including a toddler. Waited over an hour for our meals. The bouillabaisse and the scallops were inedible or cold - the bouillabaisse actually smelled off, which is not what you want at a seafood restaurant. Everything else...was mediocre and overpriced. Suggest going elsewhere. They also weren’t diligent in checking everyone’s proof of vaccination, which is highly concerning.More

We had just a short wait for a mid-afternoon table and were seated on the patio with a good view of the small boat harbour just below. The menu is quite limited and a bit pricey so we had garlic bread (basically long croutons), seafood...chowder and a sandwich. All the food was tasty but portions could be a bit larger. Our server was very pleasant and did just the right amount of checking on us. Overall impression: it was a good lunch. We were hoping for a great lunch.More

What an awesome place to enjoy lunch. We sat outside watching the boats while enjoying a wonderful meal of halibut. The waiter actually guessed what we were going to order, he was right! If you get the chance, drop by and try the halibut.

We had to wait for an hour for a table but it was well worth it. We went into the bar and waited while having a drink, the time went by quickly. Bar service was very good. We both had a white wine and shared...a dozen oysters and the King crab. Oysters were superb, King crab was cooked perfectly. Service by Bryce was great, timely and friendly. Highly recommended.More
