Wow. Pizza was amazing. Service came the same way. Friendly and efficient. Highly recommended! Just stop in on your way to Whistler or back!

Family of 5 on vacation (1 stayed behind in the hotel as not feeling great) booked a table - staff were very friendly and welcoming, they are clearly popular as it was busy, we waited 15mins to be served water, then another 15 to order...our drinks, we ordered food also… I asked for a pizza to takeaway for my son who was back at the hotel, after 20 mins we were told they were behind and food would take 45-60 mins, we accepted this as could see how busy they were, we asked for the starter chicken wings to come when ready, 80 mins later my husbands dish came out - no cutlery, waited 6 mins to find someone to ask if we could have cutlery. 2nd dish arrived 10 mins after first dish, my husband had nearly finished (he loved his dish), then the last two dishes arrived. So we ended up eating separately. I asked if the pizza was ready - but found the waiter had forgot to place the order and they were unable to accommodate the original order. No chicken wings had been received either. Cannot fault the food - but service was very disappointing. After paying $200 for a meal, we walked to the car and was followed by the young waiter requesting a lift into town. He apologised for his mistakes, it was his first day. Not a great experience sadly.More

The old adage perfectly sums up this spot. From the outside it looked empty. Inside it looked empty. That may sound harsh, but looks are deceiving here. The server made us feel like old friends, even though it was our first visit. The food came...quickly and oh my, was it ever delicious. We are 3 family members and all were beyond satisfied.More

Finally got here with Covid calming down. Two of us had the ribs. Good amount of ribs for the money and they fell off the bone. Good choice

Was looking for somewhere relaxing for dinner on our latest quick get away. Had seen reviews online and thought to check out The Nest. After arriving in the parking lot we momentarily questioned going in as it looked quite empty, not too many customers, and...wondered if somehow the reviews were wrong. As this restaurant is off the beaten path, away from the downtown we thought that maybe it was more of a local spot and decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did. The decor was calming and refreshing. Very nicely kept and looked after considering the outside definitely shows that it is an older building. Once inside and seated the service from the waitress was super. Quickly bringing drinks along with suggestions for the menu. The menu has a wide variety of offerings for people to choose. The food was brought promptly and was exceptional. My wife had a steak with veggies and prawns while I had a traditional fish and chips. The steak was mouth watering, while the fish was the largest two piece fish and chips I have ever seen and one of the best tasting. Thanks to a great experience we will definitely be back, many times. Glad we didn’t judge by how busy it was. We found that the staff were talking about how it was unusually busy that night, and yes it is definitely a locals spot, not just for tourists. But very welcoming to us that were tourists, and we understand why the locals like it so much.More

We just stopped on our way home and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. We had fish and chips and the daily special. Both were amazing. Good wine and beer too. Great services. Overall must try.

The Thanksgiving turkey dinner we had here was very good. It was just like what we would have at home. A generous helping of white and brown meat cooked to perfection, tasty stuffing, delicious gravy, and homemade cranberry sauce. Even the mashed potatos were yummy....Desert was included! We also had great service. Thanks guys and gals! 🙂👌More

Four of us had dinner at The Nest before driving to Horseshoe Bay to pick up the ferry to Nanaimo. We didn't have a huge amount of time but the service was crisp and we left with a few minutes to spare. The food was...tasty, plentiful, and good value. The gluten free pizza impressed, as did the Cajun chicken burger. Two of our party had the chorizo chicken pasta and were very satisfied. We were made to feel very welcome at The Nest. I am happy to recommend it.More

We've eaten here a number of times but today was a disappointment. The pizza was doughy, the pasta lacked flavor/spice and veggies compared to the last visit, and it was a long wait for food considering the number of tables in the restaurant. It was...hard to get anyone's attention despite the staff to table ratio of 3:1. It took a long time to get our bill and even longer to pay it. Also, one of the servers had a tank top with low side cutouts and sports bra on. I have a real pet peeve with seeing a server's armpits in a dining room, especially when that's where she transported the pepper shaker. Ewww.More

not many diners on a weekday night but service was excellent and friendly. There were other diners and the bar had a few people chatting. This is a small town we just moved to so it's nice to have good places to go. The meal...was great. Food was hot and well prepared and most of all it tasted great. Not overly expensive...mid range. A favorite of lots of residents.More

First, they are open Monday...many are closed! Pizza was well crafted and felt Italian, not American. Spinach salad was fresh and not over Basalmicked as most are. Again, very Italian. Lots of families here.
