Beauty day! Enjoyed the drinks and food but am so blown away by how rude the server is..told 3 people to leave due to them seating themselves at the picnic table built for 30. Blown away by the rudeness!

This is the best seafood restaurant in Gibsons. The oysters! The shrimp! The fish fritters. Hell, even the ribs taste fantastic. The ambience compliments the food and the staff are friendly and fun.
