Great family restaurant

This restaurant is a very down to earth place to eat. The staff is friendly and helpful and the prices are reasonable. Meals are large. Great value for the money. The pies and deserts looked fabulous. Too bad the meal was so big we didn't have room for desert. Will definitely go back for desert... read more

Pretty much your typical older established restaurant just off the main drag through town. Food items are very predictable but the waitstaff is very good, very attentive. Prep is reasonably fast. Very clean and comfy but not fancy or pretentious.

We have gone numerous times to the Doghouse. It is a family style restaurant that has a large local clientele following. We Vancouver area residents were introduced to this restaurant when invited by some locals. We enjoyed the warm welcoming, the good service by each and every waitress there, who all made us feel like locals. The food is good... More

Went here in July at the request of our 9 year old granddaughter visiting from Calgary. She had been there before and wanted to go again.

Always a busy restaurant, with good home-style food. Lots of repeat business, with many "regulars". Wait-staff are personable and friendly. The breakfast portions are huge. Try the smoked salmon Eggs Benny, which is delicious, or any of their 3-egg omelettes. The hash browns are homemade from real potatoes.

This restaurant is run the way they should be. Wait staff are courteous and knowledgeable. Kitchen is run like a hotel kitchen. Very consistent great tasting product. A favorite in the Cowichan Valley. Wide variety of offerings from full breakfast to huge lunches and classic dinner fare. I love this place and I am very picky.

Waited 45 min for one single appy, main course never made it to table since the wait continued onto an hour. Main order was a salad.
