Yummy and accomodating

Gluten free? No problem. Great menu choices for those with dietary needs and those who eat anything! Fridays offer wine discounts, atmosphere very nice and service was good.

My partner and I stopped in here on a whim when we arrived in Courtenay on August the 21st. Not only was the food amazing, but the service was outstanding. The waitress (I wish I'd gotten her name) was attentive, chatty, and super friendly! And my steak was rare, just the way I like it. The waitress even checked to... More

I have been to the Union Street Grill twice in the last month. Both times the food has been very good. The enchiladas were tasty, I would recommend that they serve sour cream on the side as they were a little spicy. My husbands lamb burger and fries were very tasty. Our server was attentive and friendly.

I met a friend for lunch during Market Days. The Grotto (the "bar" side of the Union Street Grill) had tables set on the street under a tent so we opted to eat outside.

My family (3 of us) had a late dinner (~8pm) on the grotto side. It was Tapas Thursday so Tapas (appetizers) were $2 off. We all decided to get a couple each and they did not disappoint. They were all super delicious and we enjoyed the funky atmosphere.

we were in Courtenay for a funeral and were looking for a place for lunch at the last minute, Found the "Union" as we were told later how the locals called it. In spite of the reason for the trip, the food and the service made the trip much better.

Union Street Grill is one of my long time favorites in Courenay. The food has been consistently good over the last 5 years. It has a nice, varied menu so will suit any taste.
