We stopped here for a late lunch as it was outside and had a nice view overlooking the harbour. We were served by Billy Jack who unfortunately is not as amusing as he thinks he is (don't sit yourself down with us like your our best friend when taking our order). We had a burger, fries and pizza which were... More

This restaurant was beautifully located by the water. The food was average but expensive. Not a huge variety on the menu but adequate. The seafood chowder was very good.

I really have come to love the oystercatcher. First encountered it on a romantic date about 6 years ago, we both had strip loin steak and it was excellent but not overly inexpensive, i recall we also ordered a bottle of the house red and it came in at about $80 plus taxes and tip. I love the fire pits... More

We came here because we had come years earlier and remembered the food was fantastic. This time we brought our children. Greeted at the front and asked if wanted a booth or window seat. We said window. Then he (found out later would be our server too), pointed to the table and said "well, help yourself". We seated ourselves and... More

OK, Burgerbar537 seems to be a side operation of the Oystercatcher - but it's not listed on Trip Advisor to review separately. We popped into the Bergerbar for lunch when we didn't have much time! Their burgers are grass fed. Tasted awesome, very nice indeed. You can tailor your toppings. The fries were good as well. They have an outside... More

Went twice to this restaurant for the view, service and food. Had the muscles both times, my partner had the clam chowder and the firecracker prawns. Enjoyed the muscles and the prawns, the clam chowder had corn in it which my partner does not like. Had many a chowders in his day, none with corn:). There wasn't really anything outstanding... More

From what seemed like a high end restaurant from the menu and location, we were grossly disappointed. The waiter seemed agitated when I inquired about gluten free options and possible cross contamination. Food arrived after some time with no apologies. Waiter again agitated that we only ordered one alcoholic drink. My supposed gf free meal consisted of a wheat tortilla!!!... More

Beautiful patio location, cant beat it. Too bad the food was overpriced and disappointing. Had drinks and appies, everything seemed overcooked, oversalted and very little taste. A few quality sauces and condiments made from scratch and less fat and salt, would be so much better. Service and entertainment were great.

A perfect wild salmon burger and several Granville Island beers while sitting at the harbor in Ganges, is pretty delightful. Service may be a little slow, but the food was delicious.

Came for a burger it was great, Lucy or waitress was prompt and the wonderful stacked high burger were delicious, delivered in a timely manor, if you are there between 12 -2 pm that is the most active time for seaplane activity in Ganges harbour . AAA+
