Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a wonderful dining experience at the Long Beach Lodge in the Great Room. Our server Natalia was so friendly and personable and her service was outstanding! She made our dining experience just wonderful. The food was very delicious and cooked to perfection. We’ll...definitely come back again. 5+ Stars for sure!More

Rylan is AMAZING! BEST server ever!! He made our night! The kindest most accommodating guy and he created such a good vibe for our dinner. The beef carpaccio was super fresh and the crispy frites on top were such a treat. The sourdough bread with...smoked leek butter went crazy…actually incredible. Rylan recommended the mushroom risotto with added scallops and it has a super creamy and umami flavour- loved it!More

The service at this restaurant is incredible! Add to that it is such a great location to enjoy a sunset. Looking for something a little less fancy? Try their Flatbread... they're delicious!

This is the 15th year we have visited the Long Beach Lodge Resort. This year we are here with our adult children and their families in three of the Rainforest Cottages. Each year one of the highlights of our stay has been our dinner at...the Long Beach Lodge restaurant. This year was the exception. The food was excellent and Jolene, who attended to our table, was excellent however we almost didn’t get that far. The gentlemen working the hospitality desk, Mike, was at best rude and at worst down right inhospitable. Our party of six arrived at 4:30 for the Apres Surf menu. We were told that we really should have made a reservation and that they were extremely busy tonight. He then went on to say that they had a table of 25 tomorrow and 12 tonight at 7pm but he guessed it would be ok. He then wanted to know if we were staying at the resort. We said yes then he demanded to know what room. By the time he eventually acquiesced to us entering the nearly empty great room (because it was only 4:30) We then overheard Mike discussing loudly with Jolene this issue of 6 people coming in. We felt so unwelcome it was ridiculous. I’m sure Mike was greatly relieved to see our $400 tab out of his restaurant by 6:20 so he could move on. We are very disappointed in this uncharacteristic and unfriendly experience that is so out of the norm for the Long Beach Lodge. Update: I received an email from Andy, the food and beverage manager at the Long Beach Lodge Resort. His response was courteous, apologetic and constructive. All concerns have been addressed and dealt with. The rest of our visit has been wonderful.More

We came here with friends for dinner the first night we arrived to stay at the lodge. Large but cozy room with one wall having a full view of the beach. Our server Jolene was very nice and friendly. We all had the Beet Salad...to start with an order of sourdough bread. The salads were good but could have had more beets and apples in them. Then we all had the Beef Tenderloin which was very good. For dessert we wanted to order the passion mango cheesecake, but were disappointed that they had taken it off the menu that very day and replaced it with the Creme Brulee cheesecake. We ordered it but I was disappointed with it. The food was a little slow in being served. but the restaurant was very busy. Overall a very nice evening.More

After freezing in the morning wind at Cox Bay, were pleased it had warmed up substantially by dinner time. We enjoyed the Long Beach Resort’s restaurant in June 2022. There is a small balcony where guests can view Cox Bay. We enjoyed duck and fish...entrees. Dessert was very artistic and delicious. We had the chocolate cake and yogurt cheesecake with coconut ice cream. The beachfront restaurant a relaxing setting for fine dining. The staff was friendly and provided excellent service.More

This is one of my wife’s and my favourite places on earth. We discovered Long Beach Lodge almost twenty years ago, and styled our living room based on wonderful memories in The Great Room. The floor to ceiling windows provide a magnificent view of Cox...Bay, the lighthouse, shore rocks, and the Pacific beyond, while you sit on a comfy sofa in front of a roaring fireplace with a warm glass of tea or whatever beverage you can think of! We have eaten here multiple times, on this most recent trip we have had multiple breakfasts, an “apres surf” (without the surf), and a dinner. All of the meals were well done and flavourful. The wait staff were all incredibly friendly and attentive to our needs during multiple meal services.More

We didn't have reservations for this very popular restaurant but luckily there was a cancellation and we got the best table in the room. Jason was a fantastic host and Natalie, our server, was attentive, delightful and helpful. The room is beautifully appointed, with large...windows to enjoy the amazing sunsets and fantastic views of Cox Bay. Not a big menu but everything is locally sourced and expertly prepared. Great wine selection. A thoroughly enjoyable evening and experienceMore

We had breakfast here - the best thing is really the view especially if you have a window table which we did. While the food was really good, portion sizes were really quite small. Very nice ambiance for breakfast.

The floor to ceiling windows overlooking Cox Bay are the highlight of this elegant space. We were fortunate enough to get a table right on the window and really enjoyed watching the surfers while we ate. Our server was so attentive, always refilling our wine...glasses and bringing more water, and checking in to see how our meals were. She was also helpful in providing information on the menu items. We ended up sharing the halibut platter for two as our entree, and it was excellent. More than enough food for both of us, the fish was perfectly cooked, and there was so much roasted potato, peas, rice crisps and coleslaw that we couldn't finish it. There is a nice selection of local BC wines from reputable wineries. We very much enjoyed our evening. There was a mix of people celebrating special occasions, and people in shorts and tshirts who just came in from the beach. There are some board games in a middle area to entertain kids, and it did seem to keep them occupied while their parents enjoyed finishing their meals. Would recommend this place for sure.More

A very nice spot for brunch – and there were few available. The dining room is elegant. We had a table by the window overlooking Cox Bay. The service was excellent and food very tasty. The salmon benny was especially good and the vegan power...bowl also good. Brunch also came with free parking for two hours so we could enjoy a walk on the beach as well. We would come back again.More

We were staying at the hotel for four nights and had pre booked a table in the Great Room for one night in advance. We enjoyed it so much we booked two further meals. The menu is somewhat limited (covid? but no bad thing) but...what they did was very good. We tried a number of dishes over the three nights and all were good, our persoanal favourite was the sea food tagliatelle as something very different. Service was good but an occasional slip up but the head of the restaurant was on top of it immediately and sorted things out, World class example of good oversight. The location is fabulous with views over the bay and the atmosphere was fun.More
