Lunch was poorly prepared. We ordered a clubhouse which we were going to split. The sandwich looked like something we had never seen before. Chunks of chicken that looked like they were left-over from another dish. Bread was stale and the potatoes looked like left-overs.

The restaurants on Gabriola Island tend to be really expensive. So it was nice to discover one that was reasonably priced and had excellent food....and mostly excellent service (and service with personality). The fish chowder is one of the finest you'll find anywhere, filled with...More

I’d love to rate the food but barely got through the door before being greeted by the owners. We are not tourists, we are summer residents who have been coming to the island for the past 30 years, though who we are should not have...More

Robert does it all! Try the regular beef burger. From the presentation, to the crusty bun, it's the best I've ever had. Add yam fries with chipolte mayo. Breakfast too! Regular eggs, poached, fried or scrambled, or eggs Benedict for a fancy treat. For dinner,...More
