I had one of the best pork schnitzels I've ever encountered. And, the other members of my party expressed great satisfaction with their meal as well.

This town is so dismal that I was surprised to find great food with a great view here. I ordered the fish tacos, which came 3 to a plate and had some excellent fresh white fish with a slightly spicy sauce and slaw. They were some of the best fish tacos I have ever eaten. Our server, Tiffany, was very... More

We'd just come in from an 8 day kayak trip and were looking forward to something other than camp food. This was just the ticket. Excellent, fresh food, great service, wonderful outside patio. Would highly recommend if you're staying in Port Hardy.

We picked Sporty's because of the outside deck and they very kindly allowed us to bring our dog out of the hot vehicle to lay in the shade of our table. Our waitress was very efficient and friendly, and the pizza and cobb salad were excellent. The pub patrons who come outside to smoke were all very entertaining and happy... More

Firstly, thank you for taking the time to write your review. It was apparent, even based on previous reviews with us, your experience was far from even adequate! Although we are very excited to be making such changes all at once, it does come with its challenges. The training and oversight of new employees in all facets of the business... More

Had a good lunch here. Food was good and the service was OK as well. Things were decently clean and prices were fair. I would come back here for another meal. I recommend the beef dip.

Well we did ask. We were told here and quarterdeck inn pubs were up and down well they were right. Take your chance. Nice waitress. Food is good but fish is not freshest. Certainly have had worse

We had a drink here on our first evening and were struck by the friendlyness of the place, both staff and customers. We ate here the second evening, the rib was out of this world and my wife said that the sea food taglatelle was the best meal she ate in Canada this trip.

We stopped in here today while on a short overnight trip, I noticed the place last time in town and it looked fresh and clean. It is sort of a grill bar, good size, has a separate room sounded like a pool table in there but not too noisy, I ordered the fish and chips, the fish was good size... More
