This pub is on the boardwalk facing the Fraser River. New Westminster was the first Capital of British Columbia and is undergoing major changes especially along the waterfront. This restaurant is a very pleasant addition to this new area. Service was attentive and the pub fare delicious.

Great location that they barely take advantage of - room feels old, dark and dingy. Food is generic bar fare - we tend to stick to the deep-fried options as it always seems like the kitchen is questionable. Fried pickles were serviceable. A few decent beers on tap, but this place really gives the sense of being a cheap swill,... More

Great for walks or enjoying food and drinks on the patio or for a game. Servers are nice, food is good, offer cheap breakfast special on weekends which is pretty good. Beautiful view of the river from the patio. Close to the market, new west beach (sand) on the river, shopping sky train and New Westminster sky train station.

So I've been here a few times, not just a single review. The river market is great but the paddle wheeler has not kept up. Beer selection and food average at best. Place caters to a different market than the rest of the area now. Caught in the past. Could be way better in such a prime location.

"Sometimes you want to go, Where everybody knows your name". Cheers it ain't but it sure is a place for drinking with neighbourhood people. Have you noticed that no one really eats on Cheers. Well, unless you are really really hungry or don't care what you are eating because you intend to wash it all away with Alcool, this place... More

Stopped in for a beer & dinner while staying across the street. Definitely a neighborhood pub with a lot of regulars. Felt welcome and service was good in spite of some others experiences. Food is fine as long as you're not expecting a 5 star restaurant. Very reasonably priced. I would not hesitate to go back - some of the... More

Update: Just had an excellent dinner that mandated this update. I travel a lot and this restaurant just served up a perfect meal; delicious and very reasonably priced. I could've licked my plate clean and would've if I was at home. The Caesar was very good, as usual. *** Previous review:I've been here on several occasions and have been grateful... More
