Great view, decent food

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... read 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.

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.

The window views in both the pub and restaurant are always excellent overlooking Powell Lake. This time we were in the pub. We shared a calamari platter as an appy. It was very good. My two-piece fish and chips were yummy - a nice batter on the fish, great fries and a tasty coleslaw. We were too stuffed to have... More

Came in for dinner and we were not really impressed. The 2 servers took their time getting to us and the food was sub par. I had the featured Muscles and honestly I have had better at home. Over cooked, bland and not hot left me wanting. My buddy had the fish & chips and he was satisfied but didn't... More

I google searched 'best burger in Powell River' and was not disappointed. Staff was friendly, service was faster than expected, place was clean and oh man! What a view!

We don't go to pubs to eat....but we tried this place again for food. Wish I could say something great about this eatery.....this place is one of the reasons I rarely eat out....I eat out when it is necessary, like when travelling. Anyway, very mediocre eats...so basic as in deep fried or frozen, nothing fresh. Won't come back.....it's ok, just... More

We were a group of 8 people and some did not want to sit in the pub as most were seniors and preferred the quiet. We were reserved a set of tables in the adjacent restaurant along with our own server. the access was wheelchair ramp and all internal floor was level. The decor was of the building being previously... More
