Fish and Chips with what appeared to be out of a box chips with little flavour ( same for the fish. Fish Tacos also very average . Some things to note: no masks were worn by servers, or in the kitchen . Between covers tables were only surface swabbed and nothing was done to sanitize chairs or condiments. Dogs were allowed on the outdoor patio.Parking lot is a nightmare with no directional arrows and vehicles constantly getting jammed up trying to go two ways in one way lanes. Service is slow if busy or handling a large group .View from outdoors is great if that's all you are going for.

Stewart, Seems as though you were very disappointed with us and we apologize. Just to set things straight - we have been audited by WorkSafe BC and have zero infractions. Wait staff is not required to wear masks in restaurants - it's up to the server. Fish is cut fresh everyday and we chip 800 lbs of kennebec potatoes in 4 days. Perhaps what needs to be said to you is that on behalf of the entire restaurant industry - if you feel unsafe or feel it necessary to criticize people during this pandemic, then perhaps you should stay home and keep your comments to yourself.

Was our second visit this week, and both times we were very impressed. Service was remarkable and the area is great beside the ocean, just a beautiful spot But the food we tried is all remarkable from the crab cake to lobster roll to scallop wrap bacon even the fish and chips. I don’t remember ever finding a place that have so much tasty food and the prices are great too. I have visited many restaurants and pub on Vancouver island and this is definitely a special place. I love it.

The staff is professional and provide a first class experience in the context of the challenges of these pandemic times. We were fully confident that our safety was utmost in the measures undertaken by management at the same time we felt relaxed and catered to. The exciting and thoroughly enjoyable menu that we were used to before these difficult times was still what we enjoyed during our recent visits. We appreciate that this has been an extremely difficult time for this establishment but we still felt catered to and the challenges that the staff must deal with were not evident in the manner in which they met our needs. This is a confident and professionally managed establishment and it is reflected in the way the staff interacts with the clients. We especially want to mention the service provided by Ashley and Marion. Wow!

The service staff are stressed out clearly by the owners barking commands from the kitchen. The stress is worth avoiding, I was overcharged, there were multiple miscommunications with the server and then to top it off the owners were aggressive and rude to me when I tried to speak to them about my disappointment with the service. Paying to be yelled at for a meal that is substandard has pretty much ruined my night. To top it off they allowed a passing friend to join another friend at the table on the patio. If you are looking for a stressful evening where Covid rules aren't being followed and you might get yelled at by the owners you might want to head on over. My family and I will be avoiding spending our hard earned money there. Paying for someone to disrespect me in front of my kids is not my idea of good customer service. My son heard the owner yelling at me on the way back from the bathrooms.

This eatery is located at the Deep Bay marina. It's a small place with an outside patio and few tables inside. If you have a dog with you, they're pet friendly on the patio which is great (we had our border collie with us). The food is great (the calamari was awesome as was everything else)! The staff are super friendly but you can tell they're understaffed as they were running hard. One thing of note is that restaurant hours are somewhat "loose". We showed up a previous day to find it closed even though operating hours indicated they should have been open. I believe this is related to running out of food so just something to keep in mind if you are thinking of showing up closer to the end of the day (which we did the first attempt). The 2nd time we went, we were there at noon with no issues. If you're looking for a local please to eat, this is a great place! Will definitely go back if we're in the area again.

Once again we were not disappointed - great setting, fabulous food and excellent service. We started with the Pirates Caesar, worth the drive by itself, then we all had great lobster rolls, followed by an incredible brownie dessert. All this and the weather cooperated so we thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside and taking advantage of the view. We will be back!

If you deep fry Salmon, you have no business calling yourself a seafood restaurant. If you cook Scallops until they are a rubber ball, you have no business calling yourself a seafood restaurant. If you pair Havarti Cheese with Lobster, you have no business calling yourself a seafood restaurant. If you serve East Coast Lobster while you are literally on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, you have no business calling yourself a seafood restaurant. If you bring in per-breaded frozen calamari, you have no business calling yourself a seafood restaurant. If you are literally right down the road from some of the most famous oysters in the world and you don't even bother putting them on your menu, you have no business calling yourself a seafood restaurant. But besides all that, nothing had any unique qualities. No personality. No uniqueness. It tasted like any bland pub in any city without anything to make it stand apart. Basically, this place was like a rando with money decided to buy a restaurant and play Chef without any formal training. And the flavour and execution of the dishes reflected that. It was a meal I would expect at a seafood-themed chain restaurant in the middle of the prairies. It wasn't gross. It just wasn't good in any way. So if you have low expectations and low standards then you probably will think this place is great. P.S. "a la mode" doesn't mean topped with ice cream. But it's cute you think it does. Kind of like a little kid playing ice cream store.

Had the absolute worst dining experience here. I Recommend everyone to boycott this restaurant. While there with our family for Father’s Day lunch we witnessed the Cook come out and yell at the young server. Another server an older lady with a gray streak in her hair literally chastised tables and yelled at the same server again. She was almost in tears trying to take care of a busy restaurant. All of the customers were in disbelief. I have never seen anyone treat staff like this. Absolutely unacceptable and if a man ever talked to my child that way I would’ve come back and tore him a new strip. This family… has zero business in the hospitaly industry. The cook is the owner and the older lady allowed him to talk to the server like this. We will NEVER come back. We will tell everyone we know of our experience and how they talk to customers and staff. You as the owner should be ashamed of yourself for degrading an employee like that in front of patrons. All we could do was give her a large tip and hope she finds employment elsewhere. I own a business and would be happy to employ you! You deserve better! Peace

Dear “Peace” The fact that it took you an entire week to criticize our establishment speaks volumes about your character, not to mention your pre-cursor phone call to “warn” us about your impending social media rant. Were you hoping for an editorial comment prior to your dissertation? Do not judge until ye be judged. Perhaps you need to stick to hiring private chefs in foreign countries to better serve you better. IF you are truly a “business owner” you should know the stresses that are involved in running a successful operation. Hiding behind a social media platform to prove a point is very unbecoming. What we do and what we say to our family is none of your business. We treat our entire staff with respect and pay them very well to deal with the likes of your kind. So, until you are prepared to put your money where your mouth is, we suggest that you hold your “personal” comments to yourself and use social media as a positive platform not a soap box for your liberalistic fantasies. Boycott McDonald’s if you feel the need to boycott anything.

Visiting the Island from Keremeos and without local knowledge just turned off the highway at lunch time. It was a sunny midweek day and we were surprised to find this restaurant right on the water. It was very busy but the waitress found us a small patio table. It was a while before our order was taken due to the capacity crowd but after that all was well. The food arrived hot and tasty and certainly was in ample portion. With the harbour view and good food it made for a lovely diversion from the busy highway. We look forward to coming back on our next Island visit.

I guess the food would have been fine if it wasn’t for the attitude of the owner, such bad vibes. As I was passing the kitchen to go to the bathroom, I heard him yelling at one of his staff, she meekly apologized and when she walked away he called her a stupid b——. I knew she had heard and she knew I had heard. I felt so bad I tipped her 30%. She admitted to me that he’s like this all the time. Just awful. I’m so sorry that someone would have to work in such a toxic environment.

This is my favourite spot to grab a bite with friends & family. Location is fabulous, the food is scrumptious- I’ve tried almost everything on their menu and have been delighted every time. The staff are amazing, so friendly and accommodating even when they are run off their feet. I always recommend this spot to my airbnb guests and they rave about it. 5 stars all the way.

I live about 30 minutes away and we would go for a motorcycle ride up here for fish and chips. They added an awesome patio with a picturesque view of the marina and mountains. Cold beer, friendly staff, but make sure to call ahead because hours are a little all over the place as staff has been hard to find.

Still a favourite, the new patio area is great with a excellent view. My wife shared her fish and chips, still the best I have had on the north island. Wonderful crab cakes, and they make a decent tequila Caesar. The only niggle is you have to be patient with staff from seating.,to ordering and getting food, The ladies are friendly but very busy. Get seated have a drink and enjoy

great service tonight even with the wait. we could see their was only two servers tonight. the kitchen staff seemed the be waiting for tickets and could have helped the servers. either way the food was great, service was good and we were happy to see the two girls split the patio and inside to make it equal. it is nice to see an establishment give the servers equal share. The food is worth the wait
