Great Family Breakfast

The front desk staff at our hotel in Duncan recommended this place to our family for breakfast. It was a very pleasant experience. Great value and good portion size!

Stopped by on our way back to Nanaimo. Older restaurant with good old fashioned food and service. There were two waitresses who worked extremely hard all the time we were there. There was a constant stream of diners, many of whom the waitresses called by name. A real family dining experience.

Great breakfast selection with breakfast special deal (before 10:00 a.m.) I had ham and 2 eggs with homestyle real potatoes for hasbrowns, and choice of toast. So filling; couldn't finish it! Loved the comfy booths; but liked that they could accommodate a large group if needed. The servers are very friendly; service was great. Even though they were very busy,... More

This restaurant has been tucked in by the hi way for years great meals ! Reasonably priced. People drive up from Victoria to eat here and from other places I am sure ! Definitely worth it to stop by and bring your appetite! Curried Chicken is fabulas!

While I agree with a previous comment about the cool dining area the food more than makes up for it. Ordered the clubhouse with onion rings..big servings and decent prices for all menu items. If you are passing by...give it a try.

We have eaten there many times in the past but will not go back again. Food was less than average but the main reason is the restaurant was dirty and dingy. Sad to lose a place we can go as a family but just can't take appearance and food.

A cold dining room plus cold food, not prepared to order and not served promptly. Why are there always cars out front? Do the staff park right by the front door? Very misleading.

We often stop here on our way up the island. This time I was with my husband and 2 sons. The prices are very reasonable, service is good, and the food is hot and freshly made. My husband and boys ordered either burgers/fries or the clubhouse and they were very happy. For a change, I tried to order a salad.... More
