The server was prompt and cheerful, and the owner looked after us also. We will be back on our next trip to the island and recommend Acme... read more

The fish and chips - halibut - were incredibly good. Worth a trip all by itself. Server was very efficient and friendly.

So we went to Acme this past Sunday for lunch. The place was completely empty when we got there. The waitress was friendly, attentive, and seated us immediately. My wife and I decided to share their "seafood sampler" ($14 + tax and tip) and a burger ($16 + tax and tip). I will say that the quality of the food... More

First thing that hit us was the sign "Please Allow us to seat you" great!! The service was friendly, helpful, efficient and done with a smile. All of the staff were willing to go that little extra. We were there for lunch and dinners and found the smaller portions were just what we wanted. Food was fresh and very tasty.... More

I have avoided this restaurant for a few years; the name was a real turn off and I judged the food to be as uninteresting as the name. Well, it turns out that the food and the service is in fact excellent. I had a starter for a main course - which was small - so had their peach pie.... More

We have lived in Nanaimo since fall, 2014 and have been consistently pleased with the casual sevice and food quality. The owner, Tony, is almost always present and accommodating. The home made berry pies are wonderful.
