I am an infrequent visitor as I often feel like I get short changed. My eggs benedict were good but they give you way too many hash browns and not even a piece of fruit. Most people who try eat healthy, are not interested in mounds of hash browns. I suspect Simon Holt thinking is that you are made to... More

Very nice restaurant / pub. Great live music on some nights which can be found on their website. Healthy options including a selection of interesting salads. Friendly and helpful staff.

Have been to this restaurant every time we visit Nanaimo. So disappointed in this trips visit. The waitress was miserable, didn't smile once. I was appalled by the tiny chicken portion for my daughters chicken strips ( half a chicken strip cut into 4 slices)...if you're trying to cut costs get rid of the gigantic piece of lettuce the child...

Simon Holt is one of our regular dining spots. We have never been disappointed by their cuisine and the staff are always very pleasant and obliging. A scratch kitchen is, unfortunately, a bit of a rarity these days. And their meals are often quite imaginative, as well. We all have our favorite meals but there is much scope to try... More

I was thinking I'd like steak and we'd been wanting to try SimonHolt so, I dressed up a little and off we went. We both liked the atmosphere and our waitress was... More

Not from Nanaimo and searched on line for gluten free. looked Ok so decided to try it. We had an excellent meal. Our server Lucas was excellent, attentive but not intrusive and knowledgeable for my gluten friend. Lots of gluten free choice a very enjoyable meal. We will return for sure!

I met with a couple of friends, the service was horrible, the food and drink was extremly overpriced and I ended up with food posioning. The one good thing about it was the live band that was playing were really good. I have not and will not go back
