Hidden gem

Didn't expect a place like this in pemberton. Unique menu. Food was very good. Caesar salad was great and could have been a meal. Lots of dishes I would have liked to try when I go back again. Service was friendly

This gem of a restaurant has all the heart and vibrancy that so many places loudly proclaim to boast yet in reality, fall sadly flat. Nestled in the majesty of Mount Currie, this delicious dining destination features creative culinary celebrations of local produce, dairy and meat. The staff is friendly, the bar is ample and the service is excellent. There... More

Service was excellent. Our very attentive waitress recommended the salad with roasted root vegetables, which we split. It was awesome. My wife had their Canuck pizza, with handmade pepperoni, mushrooms, pineapple and bacon. I had the Thai green curry/chow mein noodle special. It was vegan, but the waitress offered to have chicken added if I wanted. For dessert, they had... More

We enjoyed a tasty family dinner as we celebrated a 25th birthday. The birthday boy, a visitor from Quebec, received a cake from his Mom in Quebec which we brought to the restaurant. Our first server was friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately she was told that the cake could only be served if we paid $3.50 per slice. In order not... More

The service was really good and the staff were friendly and helpful. I had the Tree Hugger pizza which has to be the best pizza ever!! Roasted pear and gorgonzola does not sound like a normal combination on a pizza but it certainly worked.

Stopped for lunch, and wish we hadn't. What happened to all the good menu items? Just your typical greens or Caesar for salad choices now - boring! The only decent food were the French fries. The rest was just plain awful, dry hamburger on a stale bun.

Was in there today for a late lunch while driving through with our family of 8 people. Service was super friendly and prices were decent. Food was delicious and will definitely be back. Such a warm atmosphere too. Don't miss this hidden gem!

Had a stop over lunch at this diner and had a superb pulled pork sandwich. Not sure what the sauce was but will contact the owner to find out as I would love to have it again at home. Good service, good staff and great food, not pricey either.

Over priced, terrible service, incredibly hot. Yes I understand it is a long weekend, but you and five staff should be able to handle less than thirty tables. And if not that provide more staff for holidays and peak hours. Mains are over priced and over cooked (asked medium rare got med/well done and tuna should be cooked rare), steak... More

First time we ate at the pony express we accidentally ended up there looking for a place to eat driving through Pemberton. Yesterday we were in Pemberton again and exactly knew where to eat. The food is great, especially the specials are very special. The staff is very friendly and hospitable. Also for drinks it is a great place.
