Overlooking the marina this is a great place to eat. Food is good and the service is excellent. Recommend this for a good night out.

Food was decent , service was slow and prices were high . From what I had heard I was expecting a spectacular meal and got a so-so meal. Drinks were good . Will I go back? No.

Wanted a waterside lunch option, and Bayshore came up on the search. Was a cool and cloudy Sunday, but we decided to go upstairs to the outside patio anyhow. Server was wonderful in doing the extra running due to our decision, and there were blankets to wrap around chilly knees. Nice menu selection. The Rib'Its were delicious, as was the... More

My wife and I used to come here fairly often and enjoyed it. We recently visited again after about 5 months and were pretty shocked by our experience. There were only 2 tables occupied in the entire place and 1 server. Long story short: service was awful. Server forgot to bring requested condiment, never came back to see how we... More

Modern fusion cuisine with emphasis on seafood. Clean, friendly. Hard to find and parking poor, but worth the trip.

Easy to drive past this spot, and not a lot of parking available. We sat on the patio which was very pleasant. The service was a bit slow, but it seemed that they might have been short of waitstaff. Food was good quality for the price.

We've dined in many Nanaimo restaurants but this is clearly one of the best. They don't do much marketing so many people don't know about it. We found it on Trip Advisor and so glad we did. Beautiful night so we sat on the upstairs patio with great views of the marina, downtown Nanaimo and Newcastle Island. Service was ,... More

Has to be the best undiscovered patio in Nanaimo with a view of the inner harbour. Food is really good. If you are a seafood fan try the calamari or tuna cups. If not have a burger. Seems like most of nanaimo doesn't know about this pub as it is never that busy. Staff is friendly and beer is cold.
