Thanks to a 'power issue' at a local competitor we had the pleasure of finding the Olive & Anchor. Obviously this is a place that is well known by locals...and I hate to spread the word but this is a place worth trying. The staff are friendly, efficient and work as a team providing the best restaurant service I can... More

Excellent option for a meal in Horseshoe Bay. Room has lots of character, service was fast and cheery. Always love a Blue Buck on tap, and the Chicken Tikka Masala was generously-sized and tasty.

Discovered this spot while in line for the ferry at lunch time, on a warm sunny day. Have been back for the same reason, and each time order the tempura oyster burger and fries, which are excellent! The open air feeling and quick service add to the experience!

Nice atmosphere, good simple menu and very responsive service. Steps away from the ferry is a comfortable restaurant for all ages.

This place is the best!!! I love the oysters in the half shell that are all sourced locally throughout the Salish Sea. The tuna salad is the bomb.com and is a must try when you visit. Ive been to many an oyster bar and am the president of a company that owns oyster leases and eats a ton of oysters... More

I was in the hood so stopped in for a treat. If you hit happy hour some very good deals mon-fri 3-5. You can watch for your ferry from here while having a cold beer. The halibut burger on special has the clients raving about how good it is. 6 great beers on tap. Friendly staff and very clean!

We visited this Restaurant when we were dropping our son to the Horseshoe Bay Ferry. Dry warming reception and super service. We ordered the Mussels to share for an appetizer and they were excellent. My son had the fresh carbonara. My wife had the ling cod and I had the fish and chips. All were delivered in quick time and... More

We were in the area to see the beautiful Horseshoe Bay and stopped at this restaurant. We both had the fish n chips and they were so good, not to much batter so you can enjoy the fish. Service was fast and the view of the bay was wonderful. If you are ever in this area this is great place... More

I am a local and this is one of my favorite spots for dinner. It's casual, busy and they serve delicious food. One of my favorite dishes is the seafood linguine. It never disappoints. The seafood is fresh and the spicing perfect. The staff are friendly and efficient. It can sometimes be a bit noisy so not appropriate for hearing... More
