Best place to eat in Port Alberni! Check out Friday and Saturday evenings for the delicious Prime Rib special!

Very good food, lovely ambiance, good service. We went with another couple and we all enjoyed our meals and beverages. The food was very tasty but sniffle, we were too stuffed for dessert.

Had dinner here with work associates, we actually booked a private room for 35. They put on a roast beef and turkey buffet with some trimmings but not an over the top buffet. Food was good but it wasn't over the top. Staff were quite pleasant. See my other reviews for Port Alberni

I've been here a few times for business meetings and it's a good place for meetings as they have lots of private areas and booths etc in the back room if needed. I was back a few days ago and every time I've been I have been very pleased with the food and service. Fresh and flavourful.This time I had... More

Most food on the menu is pub style food. We had the Schnitzel and the Ahi tuna both dishes were bland and tasteless. The cooks don't seem to know how to use spices. Lots of deep fried stuff just like a pub. For the amount of money they spent on the place you'd think they would be able to come... More

original westcoast decor - like walking into an Emily Carr painting, peaceful and pleasing. Service is always very good and the food is excellent. The original take on cheesecake is hard to pass up, no matter how big a serving you just ate

I had the tuna burger and garlic fries which were very good. Our group was large and the service staff did well managing all of us.

Neither the food nor the plating are terribly exciting. Small portions, which I like, but the food is boring. Service is OK, wait personal kind of vanishes for long stretches, and don't seem to have any interest in serving the food, other than getting it on the table and getting out. Coffee refills are very slow to non existent. Not... More

Arrived for lunch today at 12:04pm. Was served a round of drinks (non-alcoholic). Watched as 2 servers and some well-dressed guy bussed 2 other tables of 4 several times. By 12:15pm still hadn't been served, no refills on the first now empty rounds of drinks; and no menus. By this time I got up and GOT OUR MENUS and returned... More
