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... read 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.

Take a pass! Food was terrible...overcooked, greasy, cold served by inexperienced people with zero personality...prices weren't cheap either...I'll not return, and I'll pass this info onto anyone going there.

I have been shopping at Granville Island since they first opened back in the late 1970's. I rarely have eaten there since the "food court" is not very inspiring. However about a week ago I saw a comment about how good the burgers were at The Market Grill. I mentioned it to my brother (a big burger fan) and off... More

... the kitchen staff no longer put the condiments on the hotdogs for you. Instead, the relish is just in some open containers on the counter, which doesn't seem as hygienic to me. Given that, I don't buy hot dogs here any more.

Love this place – only problem is you must be patient when parking – the market itself is full of surprises – like most markets it's a little expensive but it's of great value – Lots of choices for food lots of gift ideas and if you venture outside of the market you might be lucky enough to see some...

Granville Island Public Market, an amazing place that pretty much has the most amazing selection of food stands. The variety, quality and amount of fresh fish at this market too. I think you have to try pretty hard to get a bad hotdog when anywhere near to Canada or America, and this market was no exception, here's a pretty impressive... More

One of the tasty burgers in Vancouver for sure. My husband went to college on the island and spent his early 20's eating burgers at the Market Grill. Years later and we drive in from the valley just to have a burger (and do a little shopping of course!) and people watch. Great service, fast, friendly and the food is... More
