We had the great fortune to have New Years Brunch at Port Browning Marina and Pub to start 2017. Four of us dined on the Eggs Benny specials. Two of us ordered traditionals and two opted for Salmon Bennys. Everything was wonderful and then we had the good fortune to enjoy the brave souls who attended the Polar Bear Swim... More

This has been the longest standing watering hole on the Pender islands. It has beautiful views over the harbour and is fronted by large rolling green fields running down to a priceless low bank beach. Right beside the outer deck is the pool so parents can sit outside and sip and still keep a watchful eye on their children either... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch looking out over the water. We both had the fish and chips and enjoyed a glass of the local Sea Star wine. Good food and great service.

I was with a group of people visiting Pender Island, BC at the end of September and we stopped here for lunch. Very pleasant place overlooking the Marina and we chose a beautiful day! The food was well presented and very tasty and the service was top notch given we had twenty people in our group. Would recommend to anyone... More

We stayed in Port Browning two nights, whilst kayaking on a long trip. We used the cafe for breakfast, which was very good for granola and pancakes, even the healthy option with the Artisan salad was good if a little odd! The service as friendly. We used the pub for dinner twice and I loved the chowder. We both had... More

Mooring the boat at the marina and having lunch at the pub is a great way to spend a summer afternoon. Dining on the deck overlooking the marina adds to the charm and the menu has a nice selection of pub food--nachos, pizza, burgers and all are good. There is also a good selection of beers and wines to accompany... More

Went for lunch on the weekend, where we were one of two tables occupied. It took over an hour to get our lunch and the food was awful. People who came in after us received their food first. No apology from the server. There are far better restaurants to enjoy while on Pender.

Came for the weekend by boat and as usual had a great time. The pub is good and the pool is a nice touch. If your looking for friendly people and good service this is the place.
