We stopped for a late lunch after spending the day riding around the Moonraker trails. We stopped more for the big patio by the river and thought we would give the food a try. We were not disappointed in the least! We ordered the BBQ chicken pizza and the enchilada, which were on special. Both were very good. The pizza... More

We had heard about this restaurant from friends and decided to give them a try. We found a very well appointed fine restaurant in a homelike casual environment even down to the eclectic variety of furniture and the log building. The food quality was excellent and the staff very attentive. Best meal we've had in the Golden area without a... More

We reserved (for free) the entire patio for brunch the day after our wedding. The food was amazing. The staff were very friendly. Petra (owner/manager) took our reservation and was very accommodating given our uncertainty as to how many guests would attend after the party the night before. The price of the food was reasonable (around $10-15). They split everyone's... More

We ate dinner here, and the food completely met our expectations. The food was well prepared, tasty, and was a good value. We ate on the patio as it was warm out side. The service was solid and I would recommend this venue for family dining. A great place to go for lunch or casual dinner.

We had a great meal in Golden, BC on our recent road trip. The food was fresh and flavorful. We had fantastic service and all at a great price. We tried to the Jerk Chicken Sandwich and the Aussie Burger as well as the Lamb Pasta and Turkey Soup. All were well enjoyed. We will definitely be back when we... More

We saw this restaurant with the riverside patio when we drove by to the river rafting location. Given that we had a 10% off coupon from Glacier Rafting and a recommendation from one of their staff, we decided to stop by and have dinner. Unfortunately, all the riverside outdoor spots were taken, but we had an outdoor spot at the... More

We got to sit on the sunny upper patio and enjoy a really excellent late afternoon lunch. The service was friendly and helpful, and the food was far better then we expected. The Hot and Sour Tomato (they call it something slightly different) was really, really good. I also had a great steak sandwich, the home made fries are nice,... More

Dinner at the patio of The Island Restaurant was excellent. What stood out most was the friendly service by all staff. Very welcoming, very relaxing. The food was very tasty and the choice was good. Sitting outside on a warm summer evening, with the Kicking Horse river running close by, enjoying the food and drinks, served by nice, friendly people,... More
