A dinner at storms is always a highlight when we come to Kamloops. The food is outstanding and the service second to none. In the summer time sitting outside along the river is spectacular and always creates a memorable event.

Hadn't eaten here in years and decided to try for a birthday dinner. Very tasty food although the seafood dinner was expensive for what you got. Biggest hit was the linguine in tomato sauce. Will definitely go again.

The location of Storms is without question its trump card. As the name suggests it is literally right by the river and the views from the restaurant are lovely, particularly as the sun sinks down. On a warmer evening, an outdoor seat on the balcony...More

sorry it took so long to answer. In BC as in Alberta, most places are smoke free. Please refer to each place you go before lighting up as there may be fines. Enjoy the beautiful views, fresh air and clean environment anyway.
