Reviewed October 22, 2020

We ordered the daily special which was a fall-apart, tender, meaty dish with mash and veggies and it was oh-so-good at $20. What a steal! This is a busy local joint that delivers: it's a sporty bar, complete with big screens showing sports, offering a...selection of comfort foods, burgers and appys that a restaurant grill would offer. CoVid protocols are in place: tables are distanced, furniture including seating is wiped down between new customer seating, sanitizer for customers at reception station. The glass of chardonnay was a pretty penny at $11.30 for the glass; don't know how much the beers cost. Good, kind service, excellent food and free parking outside the restaurant. Located "downtown" across from the Visitor Centre and close to the scenic Carrot Park. Wheelchair accessible.More

Three of us had supper there. The staff are very efficient and friendly. The menu offers a wide selection of choices. I chose the fish tacos and a Ceasar salad. Both were excellent. The dessert was an apple strudel that was made with canned apples...and not fresh. Okay but not great. It was a good place to eat and watch hockey on a huge screen. The accommodations due to Covid-19 were well done.More

The view from the table was incredible and the seafood chowder was maybe the best I have ever had. Definitely recommend eating here.

Thanks for taking the time to review us. We are glad you enjoyed the pizza and seafood chowder. Please try the seafood pasta next time, it is delicious and loaded with tasty fish. If it doesn't satisfy you please don't hesitate to tell your server.

Excellent halibut and chips, and chicken caesar wrap. Our server Alina was truly exceptional. She answered all of our questions about Cape Scott and gave us some recommendations for camping! 100% recommend just for her- but the food was lovely as well.

Wonderful family restaurant and sports bar. We had cheeseburger and halibut& fries. Splendid meals, halibut fresh from the fish boats. Sasha provided pleasant service, making us feel at home. Make sure you visit this local favourite!
