This restaurant has been around for some time. The food is not exotic but is fine for standard fare. The location is great with a nice view onto the water and the harbor. A decent place for breakfast except that the bacon as much too fatty. Portion size is overall good and the service is reasonable.

I have eaten in this restaurant whenever I stay in Gibsons over the last 20 years. It has a great waterfront view including the harbour. The food has been good and a great place to go for dinner in the evening.

I stopped in for a late breakfast/early lunch on the way back to Vancouver from an early meeting in Sechelt. The view was amazing, as was the food & service! The waitress was an absolute pleasure to chat with and the Spinach & Feta Omelette was awesome! Great place to stop if you're ever in Gibsons!

Oct. 31, 2014 - On our trip to the Sunshine Coast we stopped in Gibsons for Breakfast at the Waterfront restaurant right at the waters edge and enjoyed a good morning meal - just what we needed - nothing fancy but good tasting and the service was very friendly and fast.

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

Our family (2A 4K) enjoyed a great dinner at the Waterfront in Gibsons, BC. Not only was the food very good, the service was great, the view was gorgeous and the prices were reasonable. 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
