While you sit in the dining room at night, you can see the twinkling lights on neighbouring islands and of passing boats. In the day time on a sunny day, you see right out to the harbour. The place is kid friendly. Service was fine and the prices were average.

We went to the Waterfront Restaurant for breakfast today - got a table by the window and the view is spectacular. The service was prompt and the server was friendly but we only had coffee because there were no gluten free breakfast options. The hash browns have gluten and they don't serve gluten free bread. Too bad.

This was our first stop in Gibson. The restaurant was not busy and we got a table close to the window with a beautiful view. We were served quickly. I ordered traditional egg benny with ham and my husband stuck to small breakfast. Hash browns were quite tasty. Overall, we would recommend this place for a quick meal.

We had cod and chips and soup. Both were very good. The cod was crisp, lightly-battered, and served with delicious lightly-breaded fries. The soup was a tasty and tangy tomato soup served in an adequate portion. The coffee was good.

I've been here a few times and it's your standard diner fare - burgers, soups, sandwiches, steaks, bit of everything. They do a great job of fish & chips and seafood chowder, and it's a great location with a view of the harbour.

The Waterfront restaurant is on the Waterfront, in the heart of Gibsons, steps from Molly's Reach, and the pier at the foot of School Street. The view is excellent, 150 degree views of Shoal Channel, Keats Island and the Harbour entrance. The decor, like Molly's Reach, is 70's and 80's vintage, and it adds to the charm as you walk...

The place has a nice view of the Sound, coffee is average, the food is the usual American style food. Maybe they could use a specialty item to draw people in more.

I had the halibut dinner and was very disappointed. The fish was very thin and dry. It looked like it had been reheated. The vegetables were atrocious --completely overcooked and soggy. I would not be surprised if they were frozen. My wife had fish and chips. Again the fish was tasteless but the chips were OK. It is such a... More
