The dining space inside needs some atmosphere, Outside the larger dining area was more attractive having a great view of Active Pass. Not a memorable meal seemed thrown together in a hurry.

Enjoyed this historic pub (established in 1892!) for a simple supper of soup, salad and a pasta dish w/chicken.

We had dinner here and the food was really good. We had burgers and a steak. All were delicious. They didn't have many desserts though and they had ran out of most of them (they must have been tasty!). The view is stunning and beautiful sunsets. It would be nice if the kitchen stayed open a little later than 7.30pm... More

We had the most excellent lunch. I had a Chicken Burger and Salad which was most superb. We sat on the outside deck overlooking the water. There is a bridge where we could look out over the water. The staff was super friendly and most efficient. Lots of humor and smiles. Enjoyed very much :-)

A wonderful view and good food, in a rapidly declining heritage building. The service was quick, efficient and friendly, the food good but not amazing. The sad thing is that this has been an historic inn in the past, and the current owner is letting the elements degrade both the inside and the outside of the building. It is still... More

We took our boat from Ladysmith to Mayne to meet our friend for dinner in Miner's Bay. The Springwater Lodge is a favourite meeting place for us. Love the outside deck seating area with the view of Miner's Bay. Service great, food average but fine, no complaints. Ambience is prime, with the sunny out door deck seating. Always enjoy our...

Service is great. View is great. Location is great. Drinks were great. In all fairness we ordered one dish, but a dish on Mayne Island that should be easy....fish and chips. Although beer batter was nice, fish not so much. Fish still had the backbone in it so not edible and lacked flavor. Salad on plate was also lacking is... More
