Dear Valerie,

Great to hear our Seafood Chowder made from scratch, was so enjoyed! Nothing better to compliment that soup than our stunning view!

We appreciate you review and thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at the Blackfin Pub.

Cheers,

“This is where the savvy people in the Comox Valley hang out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

We live in Comox and are regular visitors to the Blackfin Pub. The food, especially the seafood chowder, is exquisite and the view is outstanding. It really is misnamed as a pub because it's a fine dining restaurant that also serves liquor. Reasonably priced and the owners are terrific community supporters. I usually take visitors to the Blackfin right away when they arrive!

“My go to lunch spot...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

I normally take clients to the Fin for a nice lunch but just a couple days ago was treated to a birthday lunch by my family. As always, the service was great, the food hot and quick and the atmosphere buzzing. I like some of the new menu additions and it is always nice to see some ol' standbys. Keep up the great work and I can't wait for nice summer meals on the deck!

Dear Ben-Josee,

Thank you Ben & Josee for your continued support and great review! We always look forward to serving you both and were thrilled to see you celebrating with your family!

Both the deck opening and new menu additions are in the works, with the deck Opening April 24th and new menu additions mid May. Spring is finally here!

“Fantastic Chowder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Absolutely the best seafood chowder I have ever had. I had a beer too. The beer came in a great big glass, way bigger than at most other restaurants or pubs. Good value!

Dear Shibert,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review about your experience recently at the Blackfin Pub!

Glad to hear you enjoyed our signature "Seafood Chowder" that is made fresh to order each and every time. Nothing better than a large cold beer to compliment the chowder as well!

We look forward to you next visit!

Cheers,

“Expensive Drinks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

We have eaten here quite often, the food has always been good. That said the rest goes downhill I brought a friend here recently for a quick beer while we waited for some photos to be processed. I had a Sleeman $7.31 and my friend had a Stella $8.92, bill came to $16.23 and the server asked if I NEEDED the change back from a twenty. Pretty expensive beer and the server calling her own tip was to say the least interesting, won't be back, there are better in the Valley, just down the street for that matter.

Dear Dave M,

We are sorry to hear about your disappointing experience that you recently had at the Blackfin Pub.

Our beer prices reflect not only the size of the pour but do include the many taxes that are applicable.

Regarding the beers mentioned; Sleemans is a premium beer and the Stella Artois is an import premium beer and all our pours are a true 20 ounce pint. With the 5% GST and 10% SST taxes, Sleemman's does indeed come to $7.31 ($6.35 pretax) and our Stella is $8.92 ($7.75 pretax)

As for the service comment, we were appalled that this happened to you, and have dealt with all of our four staff to remind them that type of service comment is unacceptable.

Please let me know at lisa@blackfinpub.com when you are able to visit the Blackfiin in the future as I would love to buy you a beer!

Cheers,

Lisa Moyes
