Kamloops Favorite !!

One of our favorite spots to eat in Kamloops. Good variety and great tasting meals. Sitting on the deck with a view of the river, in the summer is a bonus.

Second time to Storms - round two was just as bad as the first - family wanted to eat at Storms - the decor inside is 30 years dated and the whole restaurant doesn't feel clean at all - Ownership must just be milking out its last days - food is tasteless and I'm sure there's no chef in the...

My favourite restaurant in Kamloops Good environment always and good service. Food always original and tasty. Clam chowder often excellent if not over filled with potatoes. Menu lots of variation, sadly they dropped an excellent tomato salad from the menu. A bit expensive.

Storms is not what I expected it to be. Not very good. They serve big portions, but it's definitely not fine dining. The view on the patio is what drew me, but I would never go back. The inside of the restaurant is dark and grungy. The carpets are old. Our server was a nice girl but it took a... More

This is a nice little restaurant on the river, the patio is walled in with glass and the tables outside have umbrellas. You can tell that at one point in time, there was an overhead awning, but no more. We made early reservations for the patio and were told we had to be out of the seats by 7, as... More

We would frequent Storms usually once every 2 weeks. We haven't been there in over 3 years. The food portions have gone totally down and the prices have gone up. The crab fest was great back in the day but not no more. You leave there still hungry. As far as I know it is still the same owner so... More

We chose to have dinner on the deck. That was a great choice. The tall glass fencing kept out the wind and the umbrella controlled the hot sun rays. At the same time we could easily watch the action on the river while we relaxed with our meal. Dress was casual through to more formal - whatever a person wished... More

We were here for the second time in two years (long way for us to travel). It was even better than last year. Had the steak with peppercorn sauce. Will drive a full day again to go here. View from the patio is fabulous (even saw deer coming down for water). We were early as we had just arrived from... More

The service was great, very helpfull with last minute reservations to get us on the patio.Our server was very good, and the food was excellent and so was the atmosphere. I would definitely go back in a heart beat.

I wanted to have a good experience. I've heard great things about this place but unfortunately it didn't happen. We went for crab feast on our anniversary. The steak was alright but the crab meat was so overcooked it had turned to powder in spots. Wasn't impressed as it is expensive. Haven't been back.
