If you are planning to visit this pub, you wont be disappointed - Food is good, portions generous and the friendly waiters are thorough and attentive. I love the fish and chips.

Pepperburger & fries remain as good as ever - however, Friday night music made any level of conversation impossible. Requests to reduce volume ignored. Is there any way to have the servers smile?

Basic pub interior but the veranda and waterfront setting compensate. Can be noisy and when full, service can be slow. Best pepper burgher and the very best fires anywhere.

A great spot where we (and all our friends) have always had a very good experience with the food, at a decent price. And the view of the mountains, Cowichan Bay, and the marina are wonderful.

Stopped in last night for a quick pint. There was a duo playing some great music, which was well appreciated by the crowd. Some were dancing, and there was great cheering too. You can always count on the pub for great IPAs, which can be...More
