The four of us knew that we'd be going here during our stay in Victoria this week. We stopped on our way back from Parksville. We should have made reservations - but they generously worked us in (immediately) during a busy dinner! Sandy and I had their Prime Rib with Yorkshire Pudding (which was awesome) .... but the vegetable assortment... More

We stopped in for dinner from our way up Island ad it looked interesting. The food wasn't bad but was hoping more from the bison meatloaf than two 1/8th slices for $18.00. My husband likes his steaks medium so he ordered it medium rare and got medium. Apple pie was really good and would definitely stop by at another time... More

Heading up-island, we located this restaurant along the highway. We tried the lunch menu, which allowed us to try the soup & sandwich special. It was a quiet afternoon with only a few table were taken. Service was very good, however the seafood chowder (large portion) smelled a little fishy & spinach/cheese sandwich, had little flavour! The ambience of this... More

Our large group (6 adults and one child) stumbled upon this restaurant on the way from Victoria to Ladysmith and were delighted by our meal & experience. The menu is large and has variety including a good tortilla soup, BBQ ribs, and cedar plank salmon. The gluten-free menu was also a hit for one in our party had celiac. Lastly,... More

They offered gluten free and the waitress really was helpful and could tell us what was in the dishes we were interested in. They had a separate gluten free menu which helped. No guess work involved in the what we could or could not eat. The food was excellent and the service could have been better. There was a lot... More

Went here tonight with our fam of 4. Excellent service, super good food. Best stuffed Portobello mushrooms I have ever had - a must try for an appetizer. Kids gave their meals two thumbs up.

Do yourself a favor when heading up-Island from Victoria, ad call in at the Pioneer House adjacent to the highway about 5km from Duncan. Great log-cabin ambiance and friendly, attentive service makes one feel immediately welcome. We stopped for breakfast and enjoyed the Breaky Burrito and Pulled Pork Benny. Both were served with outstanding home-made hash browns. The Burrito was... More

I really like the idea of this place as well as the decorating. It was very busy! We waited for a long time to be seated and we were lucky enough to be seated on the second floor loft kind of thing. We got to look down on the restaurant which was a very neat experience; the downfall though was... More
