Went for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The service was ok...not bad, but not great either. The breakfast is definitely better, but it's not spectacular. I was initially impressed with the feature meals for Cinco de Mayo but the meal I chose was not good....More

We always love that our customers take the time to let us know how we are doing. In this case it would be very helpful if you would contact us at pioneerhouse@shaw.ca so we can hopefully target where we failed. Thank you!

I have had breakfast, lunch and dinners here. I do not recall having had a questionable meal in the many years I have been going. Not a place to miss if your at all feeling a tad or really hungry.

My mom and I stopped on our way from Mill Bay to the Duke Point ferry terminal. $10 bacon and egg breakfasts were just what we wanted. Good coffee and friendly staff too.

As a couple looking for a chill brunch after a night out, we got a fantastic meal in a loud and crouded space. The building has an interesting history and has a cool, country vibe. Service was good. Great for a family meal or loud...More

The price was right, but when they went to seat us in a small corner table by the fireplace I objected. I guess the waitress did not notice my cane or lack of mobility. Then once we did get a decent table, the waitress disappeared...More

Breakfast-lunch and dinner you can always find something you like. My favourite is the great breakfasts and their Mexician salad...yum!

This restaurant has a wide variety of items to choose from. The portions were large. However, the quality of food was average. Nothing special.
