Average but with potential to be great!

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... read 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.

The Blackfish has an excellent selection of standard pub fare as well as great daily specials. I especially like the fish and chips. Be sure to come in before noon for special pricing on the breakfast platter.

We were six diners for a pre-theatre meal. Ambiance was nice in a smaller, quieter room off the main pub zone. Servers respected out time limit with smooth, swift service and attention to detail. We had the well-priced special sleeve of locally-brewed Persephone beer and Thursday steak special. I would have preferred an inclusive mini-salad and either the baked potato... More

Nothing I didn't like about this cozy pub. Tables beside the firesides, service was flawless, food was excellent and prices were very reasonable. Best part was that it was right across the road from our hotel.
