Wildly delicious upscale pub food that is a staunch reminder of gastro-pubs. These guys have something great on tap at all times and you can’t go wrong with anything in the menu. Great for small gatherings of family or friends.
We have come to Zack’s a number of times. After giving up our local haunt as it changed hands and was never the same, we started looking for a new one. We have been to Zack’s many times and now feel we have finally found...our new local favorite. Cole is awesome and wonderfully personal yet not intrusive. The food is consistently great, the service exemplary and the prices are not outlandish.
My partner often defers to the homemade burger and says it is the best he’s ever had. AND the fries are not just your normal salted potato out of the deep fryer. These are specially and uniquely seasoned to make them stand out among the usual fare.
We have now sampled many items on the menu and have found them all to be top notch. For me, food must be wholesome, not laden with the most convenient chemical laden stuff. The service needs to be consistent, friendly but not intrusive and on point. Please don’t come to my table and ask me how my meal is when I have just taken a bite. You won’t find this at Zack’s.
As we have now eaten there more than 1/2 dozen times, I can honestly say they care about their food, how it is prepared and how it is presented as well as their customers. It is a hard place to reach especially now during Covid and so much additional expense being placed on our local restaurants to keep everyone safe.
Thank you for being our new regular favorite local place to eat.
While visiting Ladysmith, my wife & I had dinner at Zack’s. This was our first visit. Sat on the deck, seating was well spaced and positioned to allow Social Distancing Protocols. We shard Arancini for an appy. My wife had the Blackened Halibut Burger &...I had Zack’s Burger. Food flavour was excellent and portions were generous. Staff were friendly and helpful. A great evening meal in a pleasant setting. Two thumbs up to Zack’s. I have no hesitation in recommending Zack’s.More

Thank you for your review Trevor. We are pleased you and your wife had a pleasant experience. We look forward to seeing you again.
Decided to try out Zack’s for lunch in the way home from our weekend getaway and we will be back. Quaint small (30 seats) and great service. Good selection of craft beers and different ciders. Trish ha a wonderful meaty Beef Dip while I had...Zack’s Ultimate Burger (made on site patties).More
In general I agree with other reviewers, but have no negative comment about our own experience.
We 'stumbled' upon 'Zacks' on Saturday lunchtime, and were glad we did.
This a small Lounge, with seating for about 30. The ambiance is early last century, with older...decor, but all very clean and in good order. I had the Chicken quesadilla and my wife the Beef Dip. It was all good, made to order, and we would recommend the house fries.We shared a nice piece pf Cheese-cake, had a drink each, for under $50. The Server was efficient, friendly, without being 'over the top', and we will return again now that we know they are there.More
We ordered our food, the server was delightful and very helpful.
Too bad the food did not meet our expectations. We ordered hamburgers and they
were both mediocre, in fact quite tasteless. Truly, the burgers at the AW down the
highway are better tasting than...these from Zack’s! Sad as we enjoy sitting down
at a restaurant with some ambiance.More
