The server here was terrible. When we asked if the fettuccini was vegetarian she stomped off to ask the kitchen. She was also put out when I asked for more hot water for my tea replying oh I will have to plug the kettle in! Long story short...terrible service and average food for high prices.

I had dinner there recently on the way back from some work near Lund during a sunny long weekend. It's a cool spot on the lake with lots of activity from boating and a busy atmosphere from families and tourists. I liked my food but didn't love it: the fish was lost in the heavy batter; the coleslaw drenched in... More

We sat on the deck overlooking Powell Lake - picturesque view and lots of activity at the marina and boat ramp. The waitress went out of her way to provide great service and share her local knowledge. The food was okay and a bit overpriced considering the quality. It's a great place to sit on the deck on a sunny... More

I have to agree with some of the other reviews that this is an average restaurant. The location is great as you are right on the water and can watch the comings and goings of the marina. The waitress seemed less than impressed that we just wanted to order a couple of appetizers and share them, but we were just... More

I was expecting something nicer than a 70s style pub/dining room, and it was further disappointing when our steaks arrived significantly overdone from what we'd ordered (after questioning the server about how the chef judged "medium"). I'd ordered the rice and my friend the potatoes and we both received potatoes. However the vegetables were very tasty aside from the pepper... More

I have eaten here numerous times and find that the food is hit and miss, however the view makes up for a lot. You are right at the boat launch of the second largest lake in BC. The actions of people moving their boats in and out of the lake can be quite the entertainment. This is a nice place... More

the Shingle Mill Restaurant is more a pub/style place. The food though is excellent and quite varied. It overlooks Powell Lake, so it's a wonderful place to spend a late afternoon and evening in the summer watching the boaters launch their boats and laugh at their mistakes (you'd be amazed at what you see!).

We had our wedding reception there. Food was fantastic!! Service was awesome !! The event went flawlessly!! We would definitely recommend the Shingle Mill to everyone. We also eat there at least once a month. Food is always great. You should really try it.
