This restaurant was referred to us at the Pine and Picket Bed and Breakfast. We found the food tasty and the staff friendly and very efficient.

Was okay.. Food was okay not bad but not great. Service was lacking. Felt like I was bothering the servers if i asked for anything. And one server looked angry the whole time not one smile.

Located on the wharf near the ferry terminal, we found this unassuming restaurant just a short walk from our bed and breakfast. The dining was semi-formal and very comfortable. The staff were professional, friendly and efficient. They use only fresh caught sea food and fish which is definitely evident in the tasty dishes we enjoyed. Each day , there is... More

We were aiming for the pub next door but the posted daily special at the Beefeater caught my eye. More of an upscale feel with tablecloths and cloth napkins but very comfortable and friendly staff. Watching the activity in the harbour was a great way to spend a late lunch. The food was very good, the only miss on the... More

We regularly visit Beefeaters Seaside Bar and Grill down on the waterfront. The menu is based on Greek food but includes a variety of seafood and beef dishes too. The food is wonderful and is our first choice for seafood cooked to perfection. There are always daily specials to keep things interesting for regulars, and unfortunately we seldom have room...

Outstanding quality of food. Must be a really good cook using top quality ingredients. Sometimes strange atmosphere due to kind of spooky waitress

Love Beefeaters. Staff is so helpful. Barry is a special - very helpful. I nearly always have the French Onion soup - different but delicious. The view of marinas and Newcastle Island lovely and sitting on the patio is great in the nice weather we are enjoying in Nanaimo. The men like the steak and pronounce it unbeatable. I go... More

First of all it took them an hour to get our menus to order our food, took them another half hour to get our appetizers, then when we all got our main courses either they were under cooked, small portioned, made wrong and given to the wrong person. The menu was over priced and the courses they were advertising were... More

Beefeaters is one of two restaurants I would go to North of Victoria, the other is in Courtenay. Beefeaters has maintained the same standard of excellent quality food and service for many years. This family run and owned business is not overpriced and the wine list is excellent. The martinis are second to none, the menu is simple but effective.... More
