“Food Senery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

My wife and I have never had a bad meal, in fact they just plain delicious, and the our children love the food also when they are with us. Seems we are not the only ones, there is always lots of people there during lunch and supper, and that is off season, little alone summer time. Great view of the ever changing ocean, with all the marine and air life out there. Prices are right, and always had great service. Love the evening music on Monday nights in the pub.

“Shady Rest Pub, Qualicum Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

Always a fun time at the Shady Rest - especially Saturday night! If you don't get there early you don't get a seat! Good luck in 2014!

“Great food, great service, great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

It's easy to impress out of town or local friends when you've got The Shady Restaurant in your back yard!

With its waterfront location, inventive menu, and mandate to 'keep it local' ... it's a restaurant I'm happy to visit time and time again.

Try a Benny for Sunday Brunch, a veggie or Oceanwise burger for lunch, or their fish & chips anytime - it's all good! The Shady is on my list of top local eateries in Oceanside. I wouldn't be surprised if it became yours too!

My favourite restaurants in the area! Great view, delicious food and very personable service!

Also, best of all - live music every Saturday night! You can dance the night away!

“Now THAT's fish and chips!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Having eaten fish and chips in many places, including England, I say that the fish and chips at the Shady are probably the best I have had in any restaurant. Crispy, not greasy, meaty fish...delicious! The cole slaw was obviously freshly made on site. The atmosphere was cheery and fun and the view was amazing! Wish I lived closer to frequent the place more often. Go...you won't regret it!
