This was the most amazing meal we have had to date. I am not sure if it was that we had just hiked the west coast trail for 5 days in the rain, maybe the fact that we had eated dehydrated foods for 5 days, but this place hit the spot. We stayed in Port Renfrew for several days after... More

During our ten day trip to Vancouver Island this was one of our best meals. I'm not a big fish eater but my husband and I both ordered the halibut and chips. Wow! The fish was excellent. Light crisp batter, not greasy, flaky fish - wish I had ordered the two piece basket. My husband asked about cocktail sauce. They... More

We had lunch here with some friends, the halibut and chips was delicious, especially the chips! Possibly the best chips I have ever had. Also liked that the Caesar salad had kale. Yum!

Absolutely lovely and quaint place for breakfast! We stayed nearby and ate here for every morning. The biker bunwich is very good and the smoothies hit the spot!!

This is a really cute place with great food. We ate here twice during our weekend in Port Renfrew because the oysters were THAT good! Be sure to grab a hot chocolate to-go after hiking along botanical beach and avatar grove :)

The food was wonderful. Beginning with the rooibos iced tea of the day to the soup, salad and a burger, all shared with the hubby.... You could tell they cared about what they served. They were pretty busy so the service was a bit slow but very relaxed and friendly. We got to eat in the side garden and it... More

Stopped by while riding the loop and so happy we did. Seafood chowder some of the best on the island. Sweet fresh crispy onion rings. Stick in the Mud coffee. Grilled cheese made with thick sliced bread. Kale and romaine ceaser salad. Coke on ice. Large portions and fresh! Oh and the free french fries dropped off by the owner...... More

Butter lettuce & beet salad, and halibut and fries were both great to share. Prices were fair and food was delicious.
