Went for lunch with a friend and although the ambience was great, we were both quite disappointed with our food. We both ordered salads...mine a caesar. At the given price point we were seriously disappointed with the portion size....it was like a side salad for...meal salad price! Also, the caesar was mostly "stem", not leaf. I definitely did not feel I got my money's worth.More

A bit out of the way, but worth looking for this place! Check it out for yourself! The reviews below are not what we enjoyed on December 4th, 2023... Mid-afternoon lunch visit, had the place almost to ourselves, and had a Genuine Flavour Bonanza! The...soup of the Day is a must. . . and my guess is EVERYTHING on the menu will be an Adventure . . . We shared the Short Rib Sandwich... WOW! We seem to have a knack for finding the BEST item on the menu on a first visit, and THIS IS IT! Did not have room for dessert at the time, so we took the "Twofer" Treat home for a late-night snack -> ANY of the Sweets are worth taking home.More

Visited for special Thanksgiving Dinner. For a white table cloth restaurant presentation should have been better. Food was OK, service was excellent

Doesn't look much. BUT as my 85 year old Mum is quick to say. "Looks can be deceptive". We had the inside track. Our local friends from Delta (we're from the UK) had visited for a romantic anniversary dinner and had been impressed. So we...gave it a go. No pressure as my wife's friend from college 45 years ago, over the border in the US was there.... But no problem.. Great fish starter and the Halibut was excellent. The Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie a reason to leave the UK and move to Canada. Yep, good service, good food. We will return in less than 45 years. Promise xMore

The lunch menu at The Cabin has an amazing variety of options. There were 8 of us & everyone’s food was excellent. The service was very good as well. It was a most enjoyable experience.

The Cabin used to be a great go to but unfortunately the last 2 times the food has not been good. I had the fish and chips which tasted like the fish was past its prime and chips cooked in old oil. The last time...we both had the short rib sandwich. This was drowned in BBQ sauce and was mediocre. The washrooms were not clean on our last visit. I wonder if this restaurant has changed hands as it much different than it used to be.More

I would like to say that everything was excellent however, the ceasar salad was horrible $14.00 for the smallest bowl ever and it was wilted. When paying for the bill the waitress asked how everything was and I mentioned the wilted salad. The other waiter...said well you didn’t say anything before so no we are not going to compensate you. Not good!!More

The fish and chips that was ordered was some of the smallest Halibut I have seen. The fries were like remnants from the day before. The coleslaw was so bad that I spit out the first forkful. The service was some of the worst I...have experienced, leaving our empty pâtés in front of for 45 mins. Never refilling our water, it’s like they just did it care. The waiter should tie his shoulder length hair up, or put on some sort of hair net.my family will never returnMore

Lovely weekday dinner date, with chicken dinner that reminds me of homecooked meals. Large portions, and very tasty. Restaurant is casual and cozy and service is excellent. Thank you Keith. Desserts looked excellent, but we were too full, so will try next time. The location...in Crescent Beach is also great for a walk after dinner on a nice day.More

Food was great, portion size & flavours all great. Service unfortunately was the drawback. Server was young, maybe inexperienced? But hardly the only issue. First drinks were slow, food should have been warmer, lamb came out overcooked, a litany of issues. We will try again,...but not on a Saturday night.More

The good; Service was very good. The food was unacceptable in terms of preparation/ taste/ and most home cooks would have done a better job. Pricing for portions were ridiculous: i.e. a cabin salad priced at $13.00 CAD comprised of 2 cups of lettuce (...I kid you not) and not much of anything else. Our jaws dropped at what was presented and we questioned this? 2 piece Halibut and chips- haha, fish was the size of 1.5 Inches width x " 3.0 inches length each and fries, which all where Burnt. Looked like fried in very old oil. I commented on size of fish and they said they go by weight. Well, the weight is about 75 gm/ or 0.165 pd/ or 2.64 oz for $25.00 . This looks like 2 pieces of fish the length and size of a normal pinky finger. My replacement meal was Seafood Linguine- the pasta was cooked mush. Total bill came to $300. CAD for 5 people. Be aware and good luckMore

Four of us, meeting for the first time in almost a year; one couple from Richmond, one couple from Pitt Meadows, converged in Crescent Beach for lunch. We made a reservation, although it was so very quiet, for a while, we were the only ones...there. Homey, relaxed environment, tables placed far enough apart to be comfortable. Menus waiting for us at the table. Parking was decent. Food was excellent. I asked for a slight deviation on a menu item, and Tracy - owner - was very accommodating. Two of us ordered New England Clam Chowder, which was delicious. Something on the menu I had never seen before: on the dessert menu was an offering of 'twofer'. Two desserts on the one plate, for those of us who couldn't make up our minds. So, the four of us made a choice, and the portions were big enough for us all to share. We didn't feel rushed at lunch, and that was great for us to have time to catch up.More

Cosy Rustic Restaurant in Crescent Beach, a quiet seaside community in Surrey. I enjoyed the garlic prawn appetizer and the seafood cioppino was awesome. ( Bring a bib!!) Well prepared, prawns, snapper, steelhead trout, onion and rice noodle. Delicious and reasonable.

We were visiting Vancouver but staying in Surrey and wanted a nice, casual restaurant with upscale food. We were not disappointed selecting The Cabin. It is a cozy, relaxed restaurant with very good food and excellent service. I had the seafood clam chowder to start...and the cioppino. The chowder was the best I have ever had. So good that my wife begged for the recipe, to no avail. She had the stuffed chicken with garlic mashed potatoes and seasonal veggies. This dish was also very good. Our daughter had a steak that was extremely well prepared. The wine list is short but reasonably priced. We had to drive quite a way to get to the restaurant but it was well worth the effort.More
