Excellent dining!

In the past month, we have travelled through Prince Rupert and both times have had dinner at The Waterfront. Excellent harbour views, nice dining room and fantastic food! Fine dining or casual fare. Something to please everyone, even the picky eater. Halibut is awesome. Jambalaya ... Mmmm... read more

On our trip to Prince arboretum, we wanted to thank our hosts with a fine dinner. They had dined at the Crest in the past and we're pleased with the food and service. On arrival at 6:00 PM for our reservation of five adults, we were kept waiting for about 10 minutes while a table for four was reset to... More

As its name suggests this restaurant overlooks the waterfront and the view is lovely. There was a good menu choice for lunch and dinner, plus breakfast the next morning. The staff were very nice and we felt well treated. If you are staying at the Crest Hotel there is no need to look any further than their own restaurant. It... More

Portions are ample and the jambalaya was very flavourful. Great wine list with local beers on tap. Big menu with items for all tastes. Service was excellent. Some items a bit pricey but a solid dining experience.

A wide choice of excellently prepared and presented food. You could do all out fine dining or opt for something simpler. Following comments on TripAdvisor I finished with the Deep Fried Ice-Cream - delicious but quite a large portion - probably should have shared. Staff were friendly and helpful. Liked it so much we ate in both nights of our... More

Loved the view and the seafood chowder but it was pricey. Nice hotel and the restaurant overlooks the ocean. Good atmosphere.

Every year an annual migration takes place on the Skeena--the eulachon, a tiny oily fish, migrate in huge numbers upriver to spawn, accompanied by seals, sea lions, seagulls and bald eagles. Many folks from Terrace and further migrate down the highway to see this unique phenomenon, and many of them find their way to the Crest's restaurant to enjoy a... More
