Very nice Waffle with Bacon. Took a few minutes to get ready but they told me that and it meant the waffle was fresh and hot. The potato cakes were also very good.

The market at Granville Island is fabulous. It is quite large and there is usually parking to be found. There are so many varied shops here it's hard to describe: lots of good food, great artisan shops, galleries, spots to sit and watch the boats go by, street entertainers, etc. This is a spot that you must visit if you...

Were shopping on Granville Island and decided to try the Market Grill. No regrets. We chose the deluxe beef burger with the salad. The portions were generous, hamburger was fresh and tender. Caesar Salad was fresh and a generous portion, but you can also have fries with the burger They have a great menu selection. Suggest when in the market... More

In the Public Market along with numerous other places and vendors. I ordered a California Burger and fries and it was great. You place your order find a seat and they yell out your number when it is ready. Hit the spot.

There's a good breakfast option or two at the Grill, things that wouldn't expect to find in a market with lots of fast food restaurant choices. Their breakfast sandwiches especially are deserving of your attention.

Decent service but the food is so very average. I would recommend trying someplace else as Granvillle has so much to offer. We had two burgers and a chicken sandwich all of which were just ok. I thought the poutine was subpar.

I was not sure where to eat for lunch/dinner, as we had arrived from a long flight to our hotel around 2:30. We were all starving, and I didn't know if our group of 6 wanted to trek all the way to Granville Island as I had picked out prior to the trip. Everyone was game to go. We took... More

You won't be disappointed in a visit here. The produce and street food are amazing. Craft stalls very nice if a bit pricey. We went as part of hop on hop off bus, got off bus and took water taxi to the island. Then picked the bus up at the other side.

Found The Market Grille, superb location, decided on a quick brunch, service, quality of food, speed of service, immaculate. The cruise ships were in, yes, we had just disembarked and as lunch went on, this venue filled totally. We were lucky to arrive early and have a breathtaking view over the harbour.

Neighborhood Profile
Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out, Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios, hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all offer a plethora of activities and entertainment options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
