Good riverside pub on a hill

Good pub. The food was OK, but just pub food which was what we really wanted. The barmaid was more than helpful and arranged a table on the outside patio as it was a warm night, even though the patio was closed due to lack of clients on a Monday evening

Not great. Slow service. Food was sub par. Stop here from. Time to time and it's usually Decent but this time not good at all. Ordered burger with mushrooms, which were drenched in garlic. Couldn't taste anything else. Salad was not good, the lettuce was all rusty. You should never ever cut lettuce with a knife! Disgusting. I won't go... More

Great view of the Fraser River and downtown Quesnel. Service was prompt, friendly and always ensured we had everything we needed. Food was delicious and servings large. All 4 of us had different meals and all were excellent. Prices very reasonable.

This was our first visit to this pub after several bad experiences at the Cariboo Hotel in Quesnel. We ordered the house salads for our lunch, which were well prepared, along with a pint of draft. The service was very good and the girl checked on us frequently to see if there was anything else we wanted or if there... More

We went in on valentines day with a young couple with a new baby, our dad who is diabetic 12 of us in total. We waited for three hours for our food and it never came, the waitress was so rude and making comments on how it's not her fault so don't talk to her, I have never experienced such... More

The food is usually good, the service can be iffy. Often on the busyer days, they are short staffed on servers. I stop here three or four times a month for both lunch and dinners and always eat in the bar as the service is non existent in the restaurant. They generally have a good soup and as the cooks...

the hills make it a little hard to figure out how to get there....so look at a map. But it's worth it. Food was good. View was wonderful. Only disadvantage is that they allow smoking on the patio. There are two "restaurants" there....one is the pub (19 and older) but it has the same menu and better patio than the... More

This place is always a bit of a chance. Service varies widely from great to nearly non-existant. Food is good, and their homemade chicken fingers are the best in town. Yorkshire puddings are nearly always great, although the prime rib is chancy - sometimes nice, sometimes extremely fatty. The rest of their food is average to good, as long as... More

I have been to this restaurant a few times and each time I have been very disappointed. Our group (usually up to 10 people) have always been reserved on the restaurant side and we were constantly searching for a server to take our drink orders and order our food. When we finally did receive our food it was over 90... More
