Been here a few times.

We stopped here for lunch and ordered clubhouse sandwiches which were pretty good. Could use a bit more mayonnaise on them, came with fries, and plenty of them. Totally will fill you up. Will stop here again next trip to Victoria. Love the place, old log cabin, rustic feeling. Not overly crowed... read more

Great service! Awesome breakfast! This restaurant has been here a long time! Never disappointing! Love the fixtures! Old log house that has a bar in it that is from an old saloon which I do believe has gun shots in it!

Casual family friendly restaurant. Good prices, good sized portions. Not the best food I have had, combination on my plate of salad with steamed veges did not compliment each other, and while my fish was fresh, it was overcooked. Good value for money and convenient, on TCH1 at Whippletree.

I've been a happy customer at this restaurant many times in the past and while in the area today, chose it over a number of other options between Duncan and Nanaimo. I ordered the "Pioneer Breakfast" and it was awful. Both the potatoes and the pancakes were starchy and inedible. The service was good but It was so disappointing to... More

Favorable ambience of a (giant) log cabin. Friendly staff. Always very busy, but line moves fast. Consistently good home-style cuisine at a reasonable price. try the portablello mushroom burger. And the desserts are worth a peek too.

Lots of residents seem to like this place, we've been there a few times and I don't think we'll be back. The restaurant doesn't fit in the House. The seats and tables are very rustic, so not comfortable for my elderly mom. The food order given didn't all make it back out, the side for the meal came just before... More

We stopped in this place on our way home from a day of shopping. The restaurant has a nice log cabin feeling about the place but thats about where it ended. The wife and l were seated by what we assumed was the hostess. 5 minutes later a waitress came by to take our drink orders. I asked for a... More

And it was great quality. Can't wait to go... More
