Pub food that's a cut above the ordinary - best ribs in town

The ribs are served with a homemade mac and cheese with bacon. So take a pub menu, add a little imagination, typical Gibsons summer-deck weather (I don't know how to explain the lack of mosquitoes or black flies), friendly staff (they have that everywhere--this is a tourist town), and you have a... read more

I had the fish tacos which were ok, nothing great. Hubby had a special, the meatloaf which was overwhelmed by a mound of diced carrots on the side. Boring sliced carrots. The atmosphere is the pub, sports style place, good service.

This is a happy place with great staff and lots of atmosphere but there are a few problems... First off, the menu is limited and a bit same 'ol same 'ol. Something, just one or two items different from the run of the mill, would be nice...chicken pot pie maybe? Cob salad? Butter chicken?? Sushi?? More fish options - it's... More

If you like pub style food, here is the place for you. I've eaten at the Blackfish Pub a few times. What I've ordered at different times is: Rib Eye steak, clam chowder, quesadillas, nachos and cheese, cheese cake. All decent but not exceptional. I like that the owners give a complimentary meal to someone celebrating their birthday (with proof).... More

Awesome food, service and just the best place to enjoy a meal and a game in Gibsons. The owner spends a lot of investment money to continually upgrade the facility.

We ordered a shared appetizer (prawns in garlic butter)and mains (a steak and a rack of ribs) then sat for an hour and twenty minutes watching people around us get food, but nothing for us. Our waiter said she tried to get our order in before a big group but I am pretty sure they were all eating, and appeared... More

Way too expensive for what you get. 1st strike -- out of 1516. 2nd strike: popcorn shrimp. Good but only about 12 of them. Drive a little further and go to the Lighthouse in Sechelt.
