I stopped in for a quick lunch on my way out of town. I wish I had been there in the evening, when I saw the dance floor! How lucky is Nanaimo, to have a place where you can have dinner and then dance to live music?! The lunch clientele was predominantly seniors. This isn't fine dining, but better than... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant and it happened to be a day where the special was fish and chips. My wife and I each had the two-piece cod and fries and a drink. The service was very good, the atmosphere more like a cafeteria setting. My total cost for this meal, with drinks, for two people was... More

Had a large table and half gave their food back. Luckily I was hungry and tolerated mine (seafood platter) quality does not justify the price. Low end pub or fast food quality

I found the morning staff FANTASTIC, (Erin, Kelly and Jill). The breakfast is good but it was the staff that makes it a special place. Can't say enough about them. KUDOS

I took a couple of staff worker out for dinner, we all had something different off the menu and we all agreed the food was good! The night manager actually served us, quick service, never felt neglected. There was also a couple of women showing/teaching patrons dance steps which was unusual but entertaining.
