Drive on bye.

Great venue service and food mediocre. I'd pass this one up. Menu was limited and service like the food were disappointing.

Every time I try to tell you guys the disgusting behavior of the owner of this restaurant, this website deletes my post. Suffice to know that this is a shoddy excuse for a restaurant and you are in for a big waste of money if you eat here. I think the owners of the restaurants pay this site for advertising... More

We had dined at Steeples about 2 years ago and remember the food was incredible...fine dining all the way....steaks so tender they could be cut with a fork. So when we got a Groupon for dinner for 2 for Christmas, we were excited to go. We even invited another couple to join us. Little things got my attention as soon... More

Well what an evening! We eat out fairly regularly and we have never experienced bad service like this before, ever. Our waiter, turns out is the manager/proprietor, puts his head down and shakes disapprovingly when we asked for half fries & half salad! Perhaps he thinks his place is too up-market for that sort of thing, but the level of... More

Steeples has become on of my absolute favorite restaurants. Every meal I have had there has amazed me. I have even planned little get- aways around the fact that I want to go to Steeples for dinner. It was my mom's birthday and I wanted it to be special, so I booked a suite at the Prancing Horse Retreat (also... More

Was concerned prior to eating here with all the negative reviews. In our circumstance they were unwarranted. We did make a reservation and it was for shortly after opening (5:15ish) so the restaurant was not busy at all. Our server said "it was her first day" but she was very pleasant and tried hard. She was guided in her interactions... More

Unfortunately this quaint little restaurant in Shawanigan Lake is struggling to produce quality food.

We really enjoy having dinner at Steeples. We have never had a bad meal. The atmosphere is amazing, service is outstanding and the servers are very personable. Everything we have tried here has been outstanding. I have a food allergy and they take it very serious here. This past weekend we decided to go. I had the calamari as my... More

I've lived on Vancouver Island all my life...but never been to Shawnigan Lake. My son had a business meeting down island in Victoria, so I made use of a Groupon and we went on Friday night. So glad we did! Loved the atmosphere...the old church renovated into a restaurant was homey and quaint, but the old movie clips projected on... More

Have been there a few times at the past. The chief and personal is very nice. Cooking is excellent. They have always a special offer and good wines. Hope to be there again n the future. Greetings from Germany :-)
