This is a good place to stop when driving to the West Coast. The food is tasty and plentiful. You will not leave here unsatisfied. The patio is very pleasant although it is on a busy street. Inside the decor is old style and comfortable. The staff are eager to please. The menu is fairly standard but what they do... More

Nicely decorated restaurant with many flowers outside. Food was ok, however the ribs were served cold. The Irish coffee is not according the original recipe but was served hot. The desert chosen was not available anymore.

The wait staff was new and had not tasted much of the menu, which limited their ability to guide us in selections. Food was very good. Dessert was OK

We live on the West Coast of Vancouver Island and drive by the sign, "Best Fish Tacos" every time we pass through Port Alberni. Reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I was happy that I finally had time to stop. A quaint and eclectic restaurant welcomed us with a very happy and helpful hostess. That's where it starts going downhill.... More
