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

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
