Stopped by for Lunch and were treated to the best seafood in the area! Seafood Stew and Seafood Pescatore were exceptional! Marcus served our meal with pride, including recommending the Blue Buck Ale, which went well with our meals. What a treat on the first Spring-like day in Horseshoe Bay!!

Yummy! Gotta go to this restaurant. Kid friendly. Parent friendly. Neat decor. Friendly staff. Amazingly great food. Had the oysters, tuna salad, fish and chips. All were very good. Have local beer on tap!! Bonus! Washrooms need a bit of a Reno but that would be all.

We really enjoyed coming to Olive and Anchor tonight. Staff was friendly and we had a great waiter. The appies were good; we had The calamari and the Korean Fried Chicken wings. The wings were fantastic. If we'd come during the week for happy hour we would have had more appies. For the main I had the oyster burger. Really... More

Had lunch here on a Monday afternoon. We ordered and shared the Cod Tacos and the Calamari. Both were delicious. View from front of restaurant was great. Would absolutely return if back in the horseshoe Bay Area.

My parents took me and my sister here back in the 80s on vacation, as I later went with my wife, to eat while waiting for the ferry to vacation on BC's Sunshine Coast! The food is great, a nautical flair, before heading out on the sea. An oyster burger really hits the spot.

This restaurant has so many delicious items on the menu! We have never been disappointed. Then we love to visit the First Nations art store next door...a great family outing! :-D

It's close proximity to the Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal makes this an ideal place for a quick meal before travel. Good, wholesome food and quick service make this restaurant a winner
