While en route to Cortes Island from Florida, our Dad was hospitalized in Campbell River so we spent several unexpected days in town. When our Mom suggested Banners for lunch, we gave it a try. My husband ordered the special, my daughter ordered a cheeseburger and we got taco salads. The daily special was ok -- BBQ pork in a wrap with fries. My daughter said the cheeseburgers at Wendy's were light years tastier than this one. Taco salad was terrible -- the chicken they give you seems to be warmed up in microwave and it's chewier than raw squid. Endless coffee refills were the best thing going. The ambiance is that of an old retro diner, but in reality, it's just an old diner that desperately needs some love. The aisles are tiny, booths are tiny and uncomfortable and the bathrooms are sad. Give the stellar location of the property, a little invested would reap huge rewards. I'd suggest moving up the street to White Spot.

We had been there once about a year ago with family members expecting a bit of an old diner flavour which it has. Unfortunately, the place is beyond retro - it is old and in need of repair; but one can get passed that. What was unforgivable though was the lack of service and issues with the food.

Our waitress, albeit seemingly over busy, was rude; when we informed the front desk on the way out, we barely got an acknowledgement. I ordered the fried oysters which merited me a perpetual visit to the washroom for the rest of the day. Not planning to ever go there again.,

On the list of things to do on our trip to Canada- pancakes and maple syrup. Pancakes, omelettes, cream, strawberries, plenty tea and coffee and lovely staff.

Not this time. Worst cheeseburger I have had in years; soggy, greasey and flavorless. Service was good.
