Every visit has been great. Service is good, friendly waitresses. Normally have been having a couple of Applebee’s instead of a main dish. Calamari and Caesar salad with a beer!

A large selection of options on the menu, particular emphasis on seafood - after all this is Port Alberni. The portions are huge - everyone took home a doggy bag for next day's lunch. Good vegetarian options, the oyster dishes were all done to perfection....More

Had been highly recommended by a local, but found the halibut to be overcooked. The bernaise sauce was terrible. And the rice pilaf was just regular rice, and had been dried out. Long wait for a popular restaurant, but the food isn't worth it.
