This restaurant is indeed on the waterfront in lower Gibsons. I have been to this restaurant over many years through it's many different incarnations of types and names of eating establishment. Went here recently to try the fish and chips. The old place is looking a little shabby these days, however the service was fast and friendly and the fish... More

The food was good but the waitress did not get the order right. I wanted to substitute the rice for potatoes and was told, yes, no problem but I was served rice. The waitress did not come over to check to see if everything was ok so I ate a bit of the rice which was bland. The prawns and... More

Food has always been average, which I don't mind, but for the high price I would expect more. Each time I usually wait up to 45 minutes to an hour since the restaurant only usually has 2 servers for a restaurant with over 10 tables. The servers also run the cake stand and register.

I went in for breakfast and it was awful. The eggs Benny on the portabella mushroom was the worst! The holidays was clear and slimy and there couldn't be more grease on the plate. When I couldn't eat it I asked for aside of toast. It came so soaked in margine I couldn't eat it either. Bad bad and bad.

We stopped in here because we just wanted comfort food- seafood club- and were pleased by the result. The restaurant itself looks dated and dubious but the view is great and though the service was slow, the food came out quickly and staff were pleasant. I had a shrimp and avocado club and my partner had the seafood club. We... More

The kids had burgers and pasta.....great response from the kids. In fact, they would like to go back as one of them exclaimed it was the... More

The view is good, large windows looking out above the water. They do breakfast till 2 or 3 in the afternoon, but the food is just what you would expect from a truck stop. Prices were reasonable and the staff seemed friendly.

Amazing location...service was extremely slow, forgetful, and lack luster. The food was equally as bad, fish and chips in Gibsons with packaged tartar sauce... do not recommend at all.
