Such a nice setting too bad the place has gone downhill. Using the history of the Beachcombers to lure you in. This is the 3rd time we've been there and the last. Being a Canadian and growing up watching the show I had to see where it all happened. Love the history just not the food. Service is bare minimum... More

Sorry but I've never heard of the Beachcombers so I was amazed by all the good reviews, mostly based on an old tv location. I called in at this restaurant for it's location by the water and the promise of good food and service. Sadly only one of these was up to par; the view. The service was non existent... More

Well....our first lunch at Mollys was great! Sat outside on the patio. Quick, very friendly service. Excellent people skills at making us feel welcome. Food was good and out of the kitchen fast.They allow dogs on the patio. Good halibut & chips, salads, soup, drinks. Now we had a good experience so we went back the next day for lunch.... More

How often do you get to eat in a restaurant that's been on TV? This is the restaurant from the old show, The Beachcombers. On the outside, it looks exactly the same, so photos are a must. You can even walk down to the docks below for photos of Relic's boat. Fun! But the food is very average. The fish... More

Molly's is a go-to place for lunch, especially. The view is wonderful, the "ambiance" and history are marvelous, and, guess what, the food is really good. It's not gourmet, but it sure is a step above and other family restaurant in this area. Always freshly prepared, always served without delays, and always with a smile!

If only for the fact that the long-running CBC television series "The Beachcombers' was filmed in Gibsons and in Molly's Reach Restaurant, a visit to Molly's for lunch was well worth the trip. Food was good. Service was fine. And the view of the harbour added to the ambiance of the place.

What can you say about Molly's Reach? It's a local landmark and a big draw for the summer tourists. The regular staff are friendly and capable but things change in the summer and service sometimes suffers. The food is essentially pub fare but it's usually okay. The owner seems to count on the fact that most people are not repeat... More
