take out

Friendly staff and Manager. Quick takeout service. Grab and sit on a bench and watch the ferries and people and pets go by. I enjoyed my moist delicious oyster burger very much. The poutine and barbeque chicken burger were enjoyed by others and the cod fish and chips was good but small.

Visited Olive & Anchor today for lunch. Male staff member serving us was young, and didn't seem to know anything about the menu or how long things would take which was frustrating. Everything was mediocre at best. On the menu it sounds like everything should taste good so we were very disappointed. Lastly, I'm a sticky toffee pudding fan and... More

Olive and Anchor looks out on Horseshoe Bay. You can eat outside or on the patio. It is a white table cloth place, chic menu. We had seafood stew and salmon. The food was excellent. After a morning of hiking and kayaking, we would have appreciated a basket of bread.

Tried the daily special, which was a freshly grilled ling cod sandwich with apple infused slaw and some great aioli. Was a bit messy but well worth the battle to savor this fine creation. Had the chowder for my side and it didn't disappoint. Great wine and beer selection and very reasonable prices. Kudos to the staff who are extremely... More

This is my go-to place when I have to wait for a ferry to the Sunshine Coast, and it has never disappointed. It's mostly lunch or snacks for me, plus a thirst-and-stress-quenching glass of what's on tap. The staff know you are in a ferry line-up and go out of their way to make sure you can be accommodated in... More

We stopped in Horseshoe Bay on our way back to Vancouver from Whistler, on a warm Saturday evening, and saw Olive and Anchor, which was full and looked like a fun place to eat. We were lucky to get a table outside with a view across the bay. The staff were friendly, the atmosphere buzzy and the food good. We... More

We visited her a few months ago . And earlier on another visit. Both times we had a fantastic time. The view is amazing. Sitting and watching the ferry, and all the other boats in the Marina. The food great and the service was a very good. See you again soon
