THIS White Spot restaurant is superior to most chain restaurants , particularly in terms of friendly service, cleanliness, and generally excellent food -- that is served hot. A word of caution, however, regarding their smashed Yukon gold potatoes. They are virtually inedible. Even adding salt, pepper, sour cream, butter , or gravy CANNOT improve the taste! Most likely the very... More

We aren't all that familiar with what to expect from White Spot, but was te suggested meeting place as suggested by a friend when going for lunch. Seated fast, in a great location, as they knew we were watching to connect. Service was great. Fish tacos were very good, as were the dry ribs. Nice atmosphere to meet in. Clean... More

After some morning shopping we dropped in for a brunch and got seated on arrival as it was not busy yet. Coffee & drinks Service was quick and orders taken. I ordered my favourite of a "Steel Head Benedict " and my wife had a "Fish Taco" with fries which turned out ok. However, my dish was not as expected... More

Stick with the old standbys, such as burgers, beef dip and fish & chips and you won't be disappointed. The server was excellent. Food was served promptly and hot. The individual peach pie was very good but a slice with less crust would be better. That is a corporate decision, however, not a criticism of the restaurant.

I have been to several White Spot restaurants and this is certainly the best one. It's hard to really say anything overwhelming about any chain location, but of them all, the staff is just that little bit nicer, the food is that little bit better and the place is just that little bit cleaner. Not to say that the other... More

As the norm...White Spot Burgers are the Best...even the Traditional one, which I always order...it is the sauce, folks! Service good, at lunch usually very busy, so if you don't like noisy I suggest to eat there after 1pm Staff is courteous, large menu, many variations

I usually know what to expect at a Whitespot and it would never be more than a three. This visit was a pleasant surprise. From the hosts greeting to the service and food everything was great.

Very much a staple of BC dining, this venue is a fine example of what White Spot offers. Good menu with many options. This location offered not just well prepared favourites, they're service was exceptional. If you have a family, this is an especially good choice.
