We had a large party (10 adults 3 kids) and the restaurant handled it beautifully. The fish and chips was some of the best ever. Tasted like it had just been caught. Salads well prepared, drinks were very good. Nelson was an awesome server...made the whole experience better.

Right on the waterfront near the marina and ferry landing, you'll find it very busy here just after a ferry disembarks. We're boaters, so we try to time our visits before ferries come in. We love the nautical decor and especially the boat house inside the pub! I love their beet salad, done with apples and caramelized nuts...always fresh and... More

Lovely staff and Enjoyed a good meal, had the meat pie and was not hot enough inside but they soon corrected it. The cod and chips my husband had was so tasty and fresh. Lovely view of harbour.

This is a very busy, well located gastro pub just off the ferry landing at the foot of Spring Street. As an excellent pub - they have great craft beers on tap and a good selection of drinks for other cocktails. The food is excellent and the staff are friendly and helpful. It is a good idea during the busy... More

It's right by the ferry landing, perfect placement for the tourists and an indifferent attitude to one-time visitors, but this restaurant cares about the food and service it provides. This is my third review, but I eat here far more often than that -- for lunch; this review is for their lunch service only. Yesterday my daughter came in from... More

I've eaten here many times over the years. While the food is not spectacular, it is still a perfectly fine place to stop for a meal. The wait staff are nice enough, and the beer is cold. I like the bustling atmosphere of the place, and if you get a window table then the people watching is great.

Maybe I'm missing the boat here. This place was always packed, has high reviews but the first time we tried to get in for lunch it was too crowded, stinky, hot, loud and had dirty tables. We tried again for dinner and it was the same. Even the same tables were still dirty. I couldn't talk to my husband across... More

We had the fish and chips, and a burger. The burger was dry, the fish and chips were soggy. Didn't like the clam chowder either.

Had the bangers here because I saw an order going by before I ordered. Was heaven. Wife had great food as well. This is the kind of place where everything you see it's "hey, what is that?" Every meal we had on San Juan Island was great and still this place stands out.
