Sorry, We are locals. don't go out to often. The rack of lamb was always great, until last Friday night. Something has changed. Garlic spread was thicker and too overpowering. The fat had that "Off" taste The Crest always bounces back and forth between 2 stars and 3. or maybe 3.5. rating. Meals have always been inconsistent. A 4 star... More

Awesome location and great food! The Caesar salad rocked; one of the best we've had in a long time. There is an outside patio as well.

We actually ate in the bar but it's the same menu. The food was excellent, couldn't fault a thing. We have lived in Canada for two years and this meal is up there in the top five.

A friend and I frequently lunch at the Crest and always enjoy the food. Laura (I asked first if I could mention her name) is a favorite waitress, she's always efficient and puts up with our pickiness with a smile, we also like the way the menu changes every month and is seasonal, comfort food in winter, fresh fish in...

Sat down for breakfast and was promptly greated (I was the first person in for breakfast). Breakfast was good, but nothing special, although for the price, I would expect more.

We had the opportunity to watch 7 eagles fishing, flying right by the restaurant windows and then perching on a tree adjacent to the restaurant. On a cliff overlooking the harbour, the view is outstanding. We all really enjoyed our dinners, the only complaint was how slow the service was (it was difficult to get the attention of our waitress... More

This restaurant is one of the first go to in Prince Rupert. You can always bank on a great meal, the service is very good to excellent, and no matter whether you're eating a salad an omelette or a steak always delicious!!! I loooove their salmon tataki, nicely done and a little spicy. Every selection is delicious!!!!

Their waterfront restaurant changed all their menu and removed completely veggie food. A place for meat eaters may be. All prices are jacked up. It's may be because they recently had a reshuffle of cooks.

When I choose to go out to eat I want a nice place with great food, so I almost always choose The Crest. I love the menu options and they just added a few amazing East Indian dishes that are to die for!! the Butter Chicken is the BEST in town. I always find the food, hot and just how... More
