“Great seafood, spectacular setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

On vacation with no internet service, we found this place looking for seafood restaurants on our GPS and so we had no preconceived notions. We had a delicious meal of fresh and perfectly prepared seafood beautifully presented in a spectacular setting. Service was attentive without being pretentious and the price seemed fair. Highly recommended.

“Memorable evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We had a wonderful experience. The view was outstanding and we both loved our meals. My husband does not care for fish so had the beef tenderloin and it was tender and delicious. I had one of the evening specials which was salmon on a crab cake that I really enjoyed. We both feel It was one of our best meals on this trip. The service was very good and never felt rushed so we were able to visit with our friends and enjoy a wonderful meal.

“Trading on its View, the Food is Average and Uninspired”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

So much promise, so little delivered in this restaurant with a stunning view. We've eaten here over the past 20 years, but this will be our last visit. Perhaps the management or kitchen suffers from a touch to arrogance in relying on the view for its patrons. The kitchen and the menu are both tired and in great need of an overhaul. My husband and I arrived hungry but none of the appetizers were appealing. Why on earth would the Seafood Chowder be offered only as Manhattan style? On a previous visit, we had to pick around the menu and this was the case once again. There's such a lost opportunity here to produce a top notch seafood restaurant, but this establishment just isn't up to the challenge. Keep up the average,work.

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

My wife and I grew up with the Salmon House. The food has always been terrific. This is not a fast food restaurant; if you want to get in and out in 30 minutes eat a McDonald's. For a three course meal plan on two hours. You are there for the view, the ambiance, and of course the food and its' presentation. It is situated high on the north shore mountains; on a clear evening one has great views of Vancouver all the way to the Island. If it is cloudy, there is a good chance your view will be impeded. The lamb is excellent, but should be eaten medium rare...not medium! Look on line for coupons and specials. We had the lamb special...awesome! The food is expensive but very enjoyable. We will be heading back in a few weeks with friends from Chicago.
