While the resort seems a bit dated, the restaurant was very good with good food and a fantastic view.

“Fun Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

I'm giving this restaurant a 5 for the experience of going there! What a hidden gem we only heard about from one of the local shop keepers. From Painters Lodge you get to take a free short boat ride over to Quadrant Island where April Point is! What a pretty boat ride, we even got to see a harbor porpoise along the way! The setting of the restaurant is stunning, right on the water with beautiful views! The food was good but nothing too special, although the bread for the sandwiches was really nice and soft. This is a place to go if you want peace and quiet with a beautiful view.

“Great meal in great setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Arriving by shuttle boat was a nice start to the evening and a table on the deck made it perfect. The meal was good and watching two seals perform in the bay,leaping from the water and flipper splashing was delightful. We will return if we can.

“Disapointing restaraunt experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Terrible service. Had to get out own drinks. Had to remind staff about the dinner order (it wasn't a busy night), and received luke warm dinner. Waitress never asked us if we wanted refills (which we got ourselves) or how the dinner was. Waitress squeezed a table of 4 right next to us in an otherwise completely emply restaraunt.

“Restaurant Disappointing in every way”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Came to this place for dining as described on the website..but the appetizers (2) and main we wanted were no longer offered. Waitress asked manager to come to our table..apparently they have been meaning to update the site but no one has done it yet....he would see what he could do for us and our request... but he never returned to our table. Clam chowder insipid and watery with 1 clam. Halibut well cooked but presented only with the same chopped veggies (frozen packaged?) as were thrown in the soup. Really a substandard meal in all ways. Too many corners cut, and a real chef is needed. Management should have some pride about what is served- someone should be responsible for the quality of food and presentation. Food was pricey as well... carpeted floor needed cleaning...sure won't be back.
