“Wonderful location and excellent local beers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

The location is wonderful with great views from the patio and the interior resembles a cosy English pub. Service was perfect, very friendly, and helped us with the ferry times. I had fish and chips which were very good but the beers were best: A good selection of local microbrewery beers including Bowen Island Brewery and Howe Sound.

“Fish and Chips!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

Best fish and chips I have ever had. We literally sprint from the boat when we get to Bowen for our favorite meal!

“CLOSED”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Doc's closed in late May/early June 2012. I understand that some portion of it will be open for Steamship Days (July 7 to 14, 2012). As of my neighbours says in another review, we'll never know for certain what caused the demise of this establishment, but there are many folk on the island who would love to see this attractive location survive.

“Bring Cash!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

Location is terrific, food was great, service was attentive without being overwhelming. I was very troubled when told that they didn't accept credit cards, but have an ATM on-site from which I could take cash to pay the bill using my ATM card. I dis-trust white label ATM machines on principal, and have mis-givings about a business that will not accept credit or debit cards, especially one located at a tourist destination where travellers would likely expect to pay with plastic.
Management's unwillingness or inability to arrange acceptance of credit cards left a bad taste in my mouth, despite the good food and service.

“not really a family spot”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

The kids menu was non-existent and the server did not make eye contact once. I was disappointed in the food - or maybe it was just the whole experience.
At least the view from the desk was nice...
