Our server Riley was awesome, very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine selection. The food was delicious, I had the short ribs and they were so tender I didn’t need a knife. My wife had the seafood ciopini and it also was delicious.

We found the food average. We ordered the caesar salad and calamari to start - the salad was very good - the calamari was old - cold like it had been sitting on the counter for awhile before it was delivered. The mains were good...- just average though - it didn't make me say...gosh...I've got to come back here!! Service was very quick and pleasant - almost felt rushed to leave though - they never asked how our food tasted. We felt that the 6 feet spacing was not adhered to unfortunately...as there are many other restaurants to visit, we probably wouldn't return.More

Fantastic little spot in the heart of Crescent Beach. Incredible food at reasonable prices. There is no finer restaurant around!

A dark, wild, rain-swept November evening might encourage travelers to hunker down and settle for a meal at any port in the storm. Not so our foursome. We wended our wind-whipped way to Crescent Beach's cozy, convivial Cabin restaurant Saturday night and were amply rewarded....After passing the Cabin's efficient Covid protocol, we were ushered to a candlelit table and capably served by Scott. Polite, affable and thorough, Scott encouraged us to feel right at home. Our wine glasses brimming with BC vintage, our appetizers, including fresh coastal mussels cooked in a savoury garlic white wine broth, arrived to delight the tastebuds. Keen for seafood, our mains included herb crusted halibut with a citrus beurre blanc and pan seared walnut crusted steelhead fillet topped with a maple chili butter. Yum! Each delicious meal was complemented by generous portions of coconut & lemongrass infused rice and seasonal vegetables. Yes, the Cabin buzzed with sound, but the place was hopping and diners were having a good time. Special thanks to dulcet Scott and cheerful Kendall for their excellent service and to the hardworking, creative chefs. We look forward to our next visit.More

Five of us went to The Cabin for dinner. We were met at the door and asked to provide proof of vaccination and ID and then shown to our table in the main dining room. The Cabin is a relatively small restaurant and specializes in...fish but also offers steak and chicken. I ordered the scallops and asked for an additional four scallops as well. I am always disappointed in the size of the West Coast scallops in comparison to the ones we had in Digby, NS. The scallops were delicious and even though they were much smaller than Digby's, I thoroughly enjoyed them especially the sauce which was a little tangy but simply added to the taste of the scallops. The food was excellent: the service was very good and efficient but the main problem was the sound level. This is a very noisy place when full and conversation with four others was very difficult.More

One of our favourite places to dine. I had the Halibut with prawns served over a bed of coconut curry rice...so delicious!! Soup of the day was Butternut Squash and Tandoori Chicken also excellent. Great service as always!

All dishes were way too saucy making it hard to taste the fish, meat and vegetables. The wine list is excellent - maybe the key is to drink enough so you can overlook the food. The service was also poor - very workmanlike and not...friendly. It detracted from the experienceMore

I returned to Cabin multiple times during my two week stay in Crescent Beach. I was able to sample several of the cocktails and I highly recommend the mojito. My experience was greatly enhanced by our server, Scott.

I cannot answer either of those questions. I would suggest contacting the restaurant directly.
