Beautiful day in Horseshoe Bay. The service is so friendly and welcoming. The special was Halibut and chips. I can truly say that the Halibut was the best ever. It was seasoned perfectly and the better was outstanding. It was light and not greasy at...More

The food is amazing, the staff are all very polite and know everything about the menu, and this is a wonderful place to have dinner down by the ocean.

Great restaurant. Fast, friendly service. Reasonably priced. Great portion size. The fish tacos and fish and chips are amazing. Chicken pot pie, burgers and chicken wings looked just as good as the fish. Would go back to Horseshoe Bay just to go to this restaurant.

This was a great place to stop for lunch on a cool spring day as we toured along the Sea to Sky Highway. In the summer, I'm sure it's even better when they open the doors to the patio, which looks out over the harbour....More

Because this restaurant is sort of in my backyard, I forget to go here. After eating at several spots in the city, we grabbed a quick bite before catching a ferry and found the food amazing! The oysters were tremendous, served old school with shredded...More
