We connected with a friend from Cedar about going for dinner, and this was her recommendation, so we met her here. Staff were awesome. They obviously pay attention and get to know their patrons. All were friendly and helpful. Four of us ordered a selection of appetizers for the meal. All items were very tasty. The Blueberry salted Calamari was... More

Nice atmosphere but loud. Portions were smaller than expected. Too much dressing. It could have been soup instead of Chinese salad.

While we were out and about, still finding our way around this lovely City, we stopped in here for lunch. It was not what I thought a brew pub would be like and don't ask me what I thought it would be, 'cuz I don't know. We were seated by a window on such a lovely sunny day and it... More

This si just what my husband and I were looking for on Boxing Day, a stormy one. We loved the beer, very good craft beer selection with great distinctive taste. We enjoyed the warm atmosphere and local flavor. We watched a group of regular customers play pool and then played a bit ourselves. Conversation was lively and fun. Great debates... More

Recently met a friend in Nanaimo and we went out for a late lunch.The location of Longwood is good with lots of parking, though the view of the shopping mall leaves some to be desired. The decor is very nice though. As we were perusing the menu, we both commented on the prices and wondered if it was just us.... More

This review applies to the main dining area. After 20 years of sporadic patronage, I am nostalgic for the old Longwood. What's gone is the wood burning fireplace and the ferns that used to drape from the ceiling beams, the great flower pots perched above the dining area, and in the summertime, the fragrant hanging baskets of flowers on the...
