Your review brought an enormous smile to my face CanAmericano. Thank you so much for acknowledging our positive changes in your review. I came to run Brentwood Bay Resort and Spa just over a year ago when the sale of the resort happened. My team and I have worked hard to bring a new level of service and quality to... More

We recently had a lovely meal (Chef's Tasting Menu for 4 with Groupon made it affordable) with friends - Everyone seemed to really enjoy the food, and wine list was excellent - our server seemed quite knowledgable regarding the wines and did not rush us at all - overall it was a delicious meal in a very relaxed, cozy atmosphere....

We decided to check the pub out as the restaurant was packed on a Friday evening. Food was very good but we thought a little pricy for pub fare. We had there cheapest bottle of wine and 2 appys and the bill was just over $60. Needles to say we sought out another local pub for the next night. Service... More

We were guests in the hotel on the weekend and ate several times in the Brentwood Pub. We are foodies and love to eat and we found the menu to have something for everyone and every budget. There were comfort foods to the slightly more exotic-ish. The quality and taste of the food was amazing as was the service from... More

Excellent food and excellent service. Definitely more pricey than we had hoped, since we saw it as an alternative to their restaurant while we stayed. $17 for a hamburger is definitely too much.

Great place for lunch or dinner, beautiful view of the bay, good menu & service. Food has always been excellent but I do miss a couple of favs that were left off the new menu......the pizzas which were amazing & the halibut burger. I understand I am not the only one missing the burger although the salmon ciabatta does come... More

Visiting an old haunt that I used to enjoy when I lived in this area. Coming back I realize that this really is a little jewel in the neighbourhood. The food was ok, not amazing but reliable. Try the tempura cauliflower for something yummy and unique. I had the seafood chowder, also good, but lacking as much chunky fresh halibut... More

The pub is located in the Brentwood Bay Resort and Spa. I prefer it to the restaurant, as it is really more of a bistro than a pub. Nice views and interesting menu. It is really a nice space with the same wood, stone and views of the resort. Really nice on a cool evening. The sushi was disappointing, and... More

As we are locals and frequent the pub fairly often, we were excited to learn that the menu was being changed. An invitation to a sampling allowed us to try some bites of several new offerings; locally made hamburgers, brisket and chicken burgers, halibut tacos, several flatbreads with toppings, quinoa/chicken salad, roasted beet salad and salmon rillettes! Now I am... More
