“Good comfort food, great atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

The food was excellent family fare food. The clam chowder top of the line. Its a quaint place in a picturesque setting (Gibsons Harbour). Service was attentive, prices were good and the food very good for the price. This is not a fancy shmansy restaurant, just good wholesome family type restaurant. The place has a lot of history as it was a focal point for the TV show The Beachcombers many years back. Definitely worth a visit.

“Quaint place with lots of history.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Really good food. Our table had both the cod fish and chips and the halibut fish and chips and we were all very happy with the meal we chose. It is a quaint little restaurant with lots of memorabilia scattered all around taking us back to another time. Take some time to look at it all. It was dark but I bet the setting on the bay would have been beautiful in the day.

“Beautiful Sunny Sunday”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

We drive through Gibsons on a fairly regular basis to visit family and go to our cabin. Molly's Reach is beautifully located right next to the Marina, and within walking distance to many boutiques and artisan shoppes.

The atmosphere is very comfortable, and the nautical theme (as well as nostalgic items about the sitcom) are done very well. Both my spouse and I had burgers. My chicken burger was very well done, juicy, and flavorful. I ordered yam fries and a green salad side. The salad itself was fairly average, however their house vinaigrette was delicious!

We have eaten there multiple times before, and have never been disappointed.

“Fish and chips yummmmmm!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

My wife and I split the two piece halibut and chips and a caesar salad. Salad was a run of the mill caesar, the fish was fantastic served with house cut fresh fries and coleslaw. Staff was friendly and the beer was cold.

“A tasty surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Stopped before a 630 ferry for a bite to eat - pleasantly surprised to find a healthy and tasty choice in fish tacos and salad with delicious balsamic vinaigrette. And real avocados at this time of year - bonus!
