So you are in this small town and the hotel says eat at the Rod and Gun Pub. Ok why not! We were not expecting much and were so surprised at how great the food was. Start with the traditional poutine. It's a must and a Pear Cider. I had the local mussels and my friend had the ribs. Both were phenomenal. Definitely would go back the next time we are in town.

We eat here often and the portion size is usually pretty fair (it wasn't the last time) But for the most part, except for the last visit (could have been an off day??) the food and service was great, great prices

Finally decided to give the Rod & Gunn a try on a Saturday Lunchtime hour and boy was I impressed!
Danielle the server met us at the door and gave us various options where we could sit,(Bar, Restaurant, Patio or upstairs deck), we decided to sit in the Pub area and where impressed with the collection of black & white photos from the early 90's depicting life in Parksville then, very interesting!
Drinks: great selection of beers on tap, bottled, canned, they have it all!
Food: abundant, good and delicious!
I decided on the Giant Yorkshire Pudding stuffed with Beef surrounded by grilled vegetables and oodles of roasted potatoes, delicious!
My wife tried the Small Quinda Salad and added shrimp, pretty good too,( I had to steal one shrimp)!
All in all a great lunch, Parksville is full of good eating/drinking spots...this one is in the top three!

Fabulous food and atmosphere! Visited the pub 3 times in our visit on 3 separate occasions. Saturday night's live music was a bonus!

We ate here for dinner on a Saturday night. Service was amazing, very fast. Portions were huge! Prime rib was excellent but halibut and chips were even better. I cannot recommend it enough, totally worth going back for.
