“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

World class food at entry-level pricing. I had the Meat Lovers 'Breaky Bowl' while the other 2 at our table ordered variations of the Eggs Benedict. All 3 came out piping hot, with homemade Hollandaise sauce. From the food, to the service, to the unique atmosphere and views alongside the Qualicum airport...not one single complaint to be had. Well done! We had dinner at the restaurant Friday which brought us back for Breakfast on Sunday. In a region filled with LOTS of great dining options, this one is absolute must.

“Great Breakfasts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

My wife and I have had breakfast many times over the past few months. We've tried a number of items on the menu and enjoyed them all. A particular favorite is the corned beef hash. The prices are very reasonable and the portion sizes are quite generous. The service is excellent. This is definitely a favorite spot for us for breakfast. We have been with friends and they really enjoy it as well.

“New Owners”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

I have been told about the new owners and the commitment to serving great meals. We had a friend visiting from North Vancouver and we wanted to treat her to a night out. The meals were fantastic. We tried the rib appetizer and it was fabulous . The meals we had were the Prawns with rice and sautéed vegetables and the Prawns were cooked perfectly. My mother in law had the chicken with pasta in an incredible cheese sauce and I almost enjoyed that as much as my prawns. The four of us ate and I had a beer and the entire meal was very reasonably price for the quality. I have also been told to go for breakfast and Saturday night for Ribs so we will be going back to enjoy those recommendations .

“The Worst ever Breakfast”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

There were 8 of us for breakfast, 1person did not eat at all, because of no suitable food available, 4 people did not enjoy their sausages (too spicy), One person ordered waffles (many) and only got one meager sized apology for such an entity. Why no Pancakes? or shredded hash browns? And why does the corned beef hash not have corned beef listed as an ingredient?

In all only one person liked the place, and most found it expensive. Choice is limited to say the least, quantities are small for the high cost. Being able to please only 1 in 8 is poor odds at best!

As a group we meet every 2nd Saturday for breakfast, and this has got to be one of the WORST we have ever been to, along with White Spot ( which has now closed thank the god's of good eating), and Garry's (which should take a hint and close very soon!)

This is not the first time we have been here, we had to go a second time just to check how bad it was the first time. As a group we wont be back, that I can assure you!!!!! One individual may be back, but the rest never! I won't waste my time and effort on this place, any more! Neither should anyone else!

There are much, much, better places to eat in this area and with more choice and better prices. I would suggest that the owners do some homework and visit some of the other places offering breakfast and learn, It would not hurt to take the cooks along too!

“Great food and Entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

Went to the Final Approach Restaurant for the Murder Mystery and had a wonderful time! The food was great (especially the steaks!!) and the play was humorous. Would definitely go see another one. Will be trying dinner there again, soon.
