Fresh Snapper and chips

Fresh snapper and sweet potato fries. Served hot and tasty. We were there for a winter dinner so it was dark and could not enjoy the view onto Lake Powell. Restaurant was pretty empty due to time of year. Will return again in the summer to check it out then and enjoy the view.

One of the better eateries for people watching locals at the lakeside marina. BC beer from Townsite (Powell River) is recommended.

Powell River's old townsite doesn't have many full service restaurants, so heading up the road about 1-1/2 kilometres to the Shinglemill seemed worth a try. I had an excellent homestyle burger, the coating on my partner's fish and chips was rather hard. Both our meals on the second visit were good. There is a great view of the wharf and... More

On the Circle route, we came upon this restaurant overlooking the bay as we explored while waiting for the ferry to Comox. The parking lot was full but we found out that was from the boat launch as there were only a few tables that were occupied that mid afternoon. The food turned out to be great and the Calamari...

The restaurant has had a renovation to the extreme. The service is excellent and the staff are very friendly. The entrees are served hot and all ingredients are fresh. Obviously had a staff shakeup from the bottom up since our last visit a couple years ago.

Had dinner here with a larger group. Fairly casual restaurant with everything from burgers to fine dining choices. Service was very slow but friendly (we learned later they were short-staffed that night). Great drinks, good food and good selection. Reasonably priced for the quality. Nice view of the lake. A/C was turned up to "freezing" - when we asked if... More

This restaurant has a great location at the side of Lake Powell, but unfortunately it doesn't have the food choices I like most. It's pretty mainstream kind of food - food that one can get at most places. I would prefer having a bit more variety - more seafood, spicy food, vegetarian etc.
