A warm welcome by a friendly and efficient staff with choice of tables inside or out. The food was excellent, especially the seafood platter which was quite a challenge even for very hungry guests.

It's been a while since last here; found the whole place had been tastefully upgraded and extended with an outdoor covered patio. Overall result... Superb! The menu was extensive, service was swift, efficient and courteous, a very pleasant experience; the reputation for the wide range of fresh seafood exceeded all expectations. Recommended for a visit to anyone visiting Port Alberni;... More

We are a family of four and ordered a platter as dinner. It had several chunks of salmon, halibut, a cup of fried squid (that made me dizzy), some shrimps, two beds of long rice, some potatoes, fried oyster, some string beans with carrots, and some lettuce. On the side was the clam bucket. It was quite delicious; I could... More

I was a little skeptical when my husband suggested we take our company here for dinner after a day at Long Beach but I was wrong. The décor is funky and fun, the food was delish and the server we had was friendly, knew her product and was prompt and courteous. While none of us had clams, the seafood we... More

A local advised us to eat here. We each had a very large bowl of clam chowder that was creamy and chock full of potatoes and other veggies. We shared an order of two large fish tacos that was full of cod - delicious. Owing to the excellent exchange rate for Americans, the bill was not very large.

If you really do not like clams you can still have (something else from a well balanced menu) a great dinner at this waterfront restaurant. The stuff is simply brilliant and welcoming, the food is very good and you will not regret spending all evening in this restaurant. I went there for clams and I will be back! They deserve... More
