Not the best food but it was OK. In the group I was with some had the chowder which they said was good. I had the halibut Caesar salad. The halibut was small and a little overdone. The dressing tasted like mayo instead of Caesar dressing. The last meal was a club house that was good and very large.

We went here late in the afternoon, but the restaurant still had three hours before closing. They were out of everything but hamburgers. They did not have a working soda fountain and (although this doesn't matter) also didn't have ice. We asked for a glass for the canned pop and were told "no, no extra glasses." The person at the...

The proprietor was very unfriendly and the breakfast cold and tasteless. Very tiny crowded atmosphere

Person behind the counter not very pleasant. Probably needs help. Food took a long time and came cold. Would not recommend to others.

the only thing processed here are the receipts. Good chow, generous portions and honest value. The place for fish and chips!

Looking for some great seafood and seafood chowder...brought us to Captain Hardy's. Sadly they were out of seafood chowder with no chance of a new pot...I had a peice of fish instead. My husband had the burger...burger and fries were amazing.

I've eaten here many times, it's worth the drive from Port Alice an hour away to get piping hot freshly made fish and chips which are perfect every time. The halibut is always delicious. The atmosphere is homey and comfortable, friends are always there, its where the locals go that's for sure. Joe makes his own soups from scratch and... More

We had a great food here and I met a few times with the locals that frequent this place who were able to give me some great tips about Port Hardy. The meals we ate here, brunch and lunch were very good and the service was good as well.
