Fish and chips, local beer, crab cakes, root beer cheese cake. Also a fun place to eat. We sat on the upper level and totally enjoyed ourselves.

WE went to the Rip Tide for lunch I ordered the Seafood chowder and my wife had fish and chips The chowder has little taste most likely thee flour used to thicken it and it was as thick as wall paper paste To bad as...they had some of the best home made soups around as we used to go all the time .The fish and chips was so so the chips were under cooked . Once the food was dumped off you never saw any one until they showed up with the bill would have been nice if some dah asked how the food was Will not be going back any time soonMore

We were staying in Campbell River for a week and tried this restaurant on our first night. The crab cakes were terrible, and the french onion soup was so salty it was barely edible. The waitress never did a quality check. She came by just...after we got our food, but before we even had one bite, and asked us if we had everything we needed - which we did. Then she never came back again to see if things were ok. If she had, we would have told her. When she came to give us the bill, that was when she finally asked how things were, and when we told her, she actually argued with me that she had came and asked us and why didn't we say anything then? We had intended on paying the full bill, but she stomped off in a huff and ended up removing the crab cakes (which we didn't eat) from the bill. So I guess that was some redemption, despite her attitude. I don't believe in judging a place based on one experience, so we did decide to go back a few nights later. And it was much better. The waitress was extremely pleasant, and the food was much better. I had the seafood linguine - which is not as good as I had at another restaurant in town, but it was a much better meal than the first experience.More

Try the Firecracker Oysters -the best we had on Vancouver Island. The restaurant is busy so you have to wait or reserve as they are short staffed due to covid

Enjoyed sitting out on the patio with Freinds. Nice view. The menu is large and varied. We all had trouble deciding because it all sounded great. My husband and I shared 2 different seafood pastas. We'll be back next time we're in Campbell River.

The atmosphere and ambiance were wonderful! Everything was kept clean and the service was great. Our server even apologized for a bit of a backup at the bar. The traditional pub food was good.
