First visit so wasn't sure what to order. Picked fish tacos which were absolutely delicious. Highly recommend. Daughter had chicken tacos and son-in-law beef tacos. They thoroughly enjoyed their meals as well. Great value - 2 Tacos for $7.00!

Ate here for lunch a few times- they closed at 3. The tea and coffee were good choices and we enjoyed the food. Eclectic choices-Mexican, seafood, and Canadian.

Great food, amazing burgers but overall too pricey for a family night out. Fries were extra, beer pretty good. It's more of a " treat yourself" place.

The green salad on its own was delish but the addition of the fish was *off the hook*! I have eaten fish tacos on the west coast but I needed some serious greens this time; thanks to Old Crow's satisfying menu, I got what I...More

I came to Gabriola Island in January (2015) and always kept forgetting how bad The Old Crow was until I was reminded again after biting into another tasteless burrito. Maybe I'm spoiled because I'm originally from Arizona and the state is known for having pretty...More
