I have been to the Union Street Grill twice in the last month. Both times the food has been very good. The enchiladas were tasty, I would recommend that they serve sour cream on the side as they were a little spicy. My husbands lamb burger and fries were very tasty. Our server was attentive and friendly.

I met a friend for lunch during Market Days. The Grotto (the "bar" side of the Union Street Grill) had tables set on the street under a tent so we opted to eat outside. Bad news: the waitress seemed completely disinterested in the customers under the tent. If they didn't want to or somehow couldn't attend to customers under their... More

My family (3 of us) had a late dinner (~8pm) on the grotto side. It was Tapas Thursday so Tapas (appetizers) were $2 off. We all decided to get a couple each and they did not disappoint. They were all super delicious and we enjoyed the funky atmosphere.

we were in Courtenay for a funeral and were looking for a place for lunch at the last minute, Found the "Union" as we were told later how the locals called it. In spite of the reason for the trip, the food and the service made the trip much better.

Union Street Grill is one of my long time favorites in Courenay. The food has been consistently good over the last 5 years. It has a nice, varied menu so will suit any taste.

I was pleasantly surprised by the food in this place. The atmosphere is not wonderful, not bad, but a little dark and not super duper friendly. We had the spinach salad which is the best one I have ever eaten, the mushroom burger which was amazing, a seafood dish, and a chocolate dessert. The bill was also pretty reasonable considering...

You can have a full dinner with West Coast flair or simply a bowl of soup or tapas at the coffee bar side. Entertainment in the evening. Restaurant has changed owners and haven't been recently
