An ok place to go to with better places in Duncan near by

We were a group of 8 people who had made a reservation ahead of time. It was a slow Monday evening, so the pub and restaurant were not busy, but still we had to wait some time for our meals. The server was very good and attentive - we did have to flag him down for beverage renewals though -... read more

We have visited the pub and dining room many times. The food is been exceptionally good and offers good value for your dollar. The menu is extensive and offers all the usual pub food. The burgers are loaded and filling. Whether you chose to eat in the pub or the dining room the food at the 'CVI' is never disappointing.... More

I don't travel to or through Duncan all that often, but have now dined at the "Cowichan Station" pub for lunch about four times. Every experience has been a good one ..... With good food and good service. It appears as if a lot of locals dine there, and to me, that is a good indicator of good food! One... More

We were staying at the BW CV and had invited my wife's relations to have dinner with us at the hotel. We have eaten here before and were expecting a decent meal. It was better than that, it was exceptional. There were 5 of us and we all had something different and each of us was full (or overfull) at... More

The restaurant is very good and family friendly. The pub is very popular and I haven't eaten anything on the menu that wasn't good or better than good. Pleasant surroundings, good service, and reasonable prices.

We have been dining here for 20 years. High quality food always presented nicely on the plate. Mix of colors and thoughtfully laid out. A bit disappointed on our last visit as the veggies were cold and they weren't supposed to be!

Truly the best meal I had in the area, and I enjoyed many good ones. Excellent service, moderate prices.

The food and service were so good we didn't look for anywhere else to eat. Though our visit was brief, the food, service, and surroundings were pleasantly memorable.

My husband and I had lunch today at the restaurant and were disappointed to say the least. My favorite meal in the past was the salmon bowl. Effective today, the decision makers chose to take Salmon off the menu. Not only are people trying to be health conscious with their diets but we live on the West Coast for heavens... More

First off we will always apologize to any customer who is disappointed when a menu is changed or updated and their 'favourite' dish is suddenly gone. Believe me we do and have appreciated all of the past business that may have made it a favourite. But as a restaurant operation one has to make a choice, a very simple one:... More

This restaurant continues to be an all time favorite, even after many visits. The restaurant is bright, clean, welcoming and the tables are comfortably spaced. I chose the Grilled Romaine Caesar Salad. Bacon and capers, fresh lemon wedges and shaved parm on a head of grilled romaine with a delicious (not too garlicky) dressing. I couldn't have asked for anything... More
