We walked over and found very friendly staff and better than expected food. Thursday is burger day and you get a burger and beer for 15$. The pub has both good beer on tap and a nice cider and wine selection- not large but local...enough. We loved sitting on the patio.More

We were in Crofton visiting my Father-in-Law and wanted to treat him for dinner. He told us he had heard good things about the Osborne Bay Pub. So off we went! The servers was very friendly and attentive. They were following all covid rules. It...was really dark inside. It wouldn't hurt to turn the lights up a little bit. My spouse had the nachos. There was lots of toppings on all rows. There house made salsa was incredible. I had there Beef Dip with fries. This is the best beef dip I have ever had. The beef & au jus is seasoned perfectly. There was a little pink to the beef which personally I love. The bun was toasted perfectly. All around a great experience!More

This place is puzzling at best. The food is always cold, tasteless and service is very slow. Staff turnover is very high. It could be a great place under management that understands hospitality industry. It is just dismal and expensive dismal.

Myself and my lady are travelling through town and stopped by for happy hour. Our server was makenzie (I think that’s her name) she was an absolute delight! Food and alcohol was faster then any other place on the island hands down. We got x4...beers x2 wines and acouple meals and it was still under $100 including tips. Would highly recommend this place for food or drinks. Thanks makenzie for a great experience!!! The Aussie couple! 👊🏽More

This pub reminds me of a seed airport strip "Gentlemen's Club"! The food is overpriced and the quality is that of a strip club. I went there for a band that was playing but was disappointed with the atmosphere. To top it all off, the...service was really slow and the servers almost solicit a big tip. The one we had was terrible and she practically asked us how much we were going to leave her. Not cool! I can't see any reason for someone to visit this bar, except to see some entertainment that they are familiar with. I can't endorse this bar. It's all show and no go. There advertising techniques are slimy at best too. Their events fliers are posted everywhere ....literally. Every telephone pole and every wall. They even staple them over Chemainus billboards....which are not intended for people to post on. They are literally defacing public property. When they do post on intended public bulletin boards, they cover other relevant ads and announcements....NOT COOL!More

Servers good, food improved, variety of weekend entertainment, but management lacked tact and diplomacy when under stress for a minor incident, making for an unpleasant experience.

We were in the ferry queue. There was no option. We were pleasantly surprised. Server pleasant. We had shrimp and avocado on pretzel buns with fries. We both found the pretzel bun an odd choice for the flavour combination but it hit the spot and...the fries were good, not overdone, not greasy.More

My husband and I stopped in here for drinks after a day spent touring the area. This place sits close to the water with a marina and the Ferry to Salt Spring Island within site of the Pub itself.Our waitress was friendly and quick with...our drinks. It was quiet as it was mid afternoon, but on weekends this Pub is host to live bands and we will definitely be back with friends on a Friday or Saturday night in the future.More

The Osborne Bay Café doesn't have much of a baked goods selection and is even lacking an espresso machine (which is very surprising) but the brewed coffee is outstanding. It's mild, full bodied, and utterly delicious. The lady behind the counter is extremely efficient, proficient,...and friendly, and all in all it's a great place to sit at one of the numerous tables and look out onto the sea while you wait for the next ferry to Salt Spring!More
