“Finally got it Right!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Someone finally got it right, after a long line of mediocre at the town's only waterfront restaurant. The updated decor and expanded patio area do justice to the setting and the interesting, modern menu choices will keep me coming back again and again to try them all! Since the restaurant recently opened, I've been in twice for lunch. The candied salmon chowder is wonderful and the salads offer interesting combinations. My companions ordered a variety of items, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. I don't think you can go wrong here!

“Good portions, excellent food!3”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

Good portions, and excellent food. Had a cup of the candied salmon chowder and the cajun salmon. Both were excellent, although the main dishes did take a while to arrive.

“The Starboard Grill, Port Alberni, B.C..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

The Starboard Grill is a very cosy restaurant and It is a perfect place for an Anniversary dinner! The food has obviously been given a lot of care and personal attention by Chef Brad. It is so nice to get a piece of meat that hasn't been cooked to death and is juicy and beautifully prepared.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Have been twice. The decor is stark and cold. Meat (burger patty & steak) is undercooked. Both meals were lukewarm and bland. The service, both times, was excellent but I won't be going back a third time.
