“First Time's a Charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

We'd never been here before, but were pleasantly surprised! The food is fresh and good, and the servers are more than happy to wait on you! You know how sometimes you get a waiter or waitress who seems to not want to help? Well this was certainly not the case here. The restaurant has a nice homey feel, and the menu is very decently priced. It is one of our new favourite family restaurants.

“Friendly Staff & Average Fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

White Spot Courtenay has some of the friendliest staff, attentive, but as is often in this type of restaurant, they have lots of tables to serve and sometimes you are left waiting awhile for the ordering process and getting an order. The usual menu of burger variations, pastas and high calorie treats to tempt you to over-indulge! Rather salty cheesecake but super chocolate-rich cake. Relaxing atmosphere.

“White Spot Burgers are delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

White Spot Burgers are delicious! This is where I go to get a gourmet burger in the Courtenay area, the "Double Double Burger" is my favourite. Order the french fries extra crisp or you will get the soft limp kind :( Even consider extra, extra crisp. The chocolate shakes are not anywhere near as good as they were years ago so get a Coke. This is a busy place around dinner time, you might have to wait briefly for a seat.

Parking for large vehicles & trailers is difficult.

“always count on White Spot...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Still the best burger around, but they do have some great choices on their menu, even some curries. It's been around a long time for a reason, great service, and good food. It's a good place to bring your kids, I think they still have the "Pirate Pack"?

“Consistent Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Breakfast, lunch, or dinner.....always a large menu with surprisingly inventive creations. The Courtenay franchise is bright, clean, and staffed by exceedingly pleasant waitstaff.
