Very good food and excellent specials. Great location overlooking the ocean and the strollers.
Parking can be a challenge on a sunny day but the walk to the restaurant is by the ocean so very pleasant.

Was attracted to this pub by the sound of live Irish music as we passed, the atmosphere was great, the Guinness was great but the food terrible. Myself and my wife ordered the Halibut and chips, it arrived nice and hot but the Halibut was obviously out of a box or bag it had this hard thick coating of solid batter and the chips were limp and very sorry looking. This was processed cheap food being served at bumped up prices. If the food had been as good as the music this place would be packed to the rafters all the time....what a shame,

I was visiting Vancouver for business from and stopped in for a pint. Coupled with a delicious beef stew it made for a great evening, will definitely be back... The Guinness alone is worth the flight!

A girlfriend of mine bought a Groupon for this place, so on a hot Saturday we decided to try it out for lunch. Got there around noon (it opens at 11:30) and we were the second table there. We received menus from a no personality man who was our server... he walked away and finally came back for our drink order about 10 minutes later (remember its 25 degress out and we were THIRSTY). We told him that we were using a groupon, so he gave us the groupon menu. Another 15 minutes or so later he comes back to take our order, which with the groupon was a choice of 2 appetizers, 2 entrees and 2 desserts, which we had to order all at once. Again, barely a word was spoken from him. It was awkward. As our appetizers came, we ate and the food was delicious. We had the Bloxy and brie, and the beet salad, both delicious. Entrees: chicken pot pie, and cod and chips. The cod was panko and it was delicious, as well as the pot pie. Huge portions. Again, delicious food. We were so full that we asked if it was okay to skip dessert. He said he would ask if they made it yet, and well, he never came and told us otherwise so we assumed that they didnt. We were never asked if we wanted another drink, and as he stood over us with the debit machine as we paid for our drinks, we left and felt a sight of relief that we were free of that awkward, unfriendly situation.

My thought was that when restaurant do groupons, they are looking for new business, in which you would think that the server would go above and beyond. This guy is in the wrong business. On the flip side, he sure was chatty with the male patrons who came in halfway through our meal. Unfortunately, even though the food was amazing, the lack of service (not even a "how was your meal"?).... I would not return, the competition is too high in white rock, and service outweighs!
