I always forget about this restaurant, I think only because it's located by the ferry terminal. It's right next to the marina, so nice to be right on the water front. Lots of activity happening and even seeing the float planes fly overhead as well. We went there for my mom & dad's 50th anniversary. I called ahead, made reservations... More

Stayed at a B&B just up the road. My wife and I asked the owner, a French Chef no less, for the name of a good fish restaurant. Without hesitation she recommended Beefeaters. We were not disappointed. Our waitress Tara followed our charming welcome by the owner, with discrete and attentive service. We started with a shared appetizer having learned... More

Had a nice lunch on the deck, best fish & chips in a long time. Always driven by to and from the ferry, never stopped in, glad we did will be back.

Outdoor seating at end of pier with pretty views over the marina at sunset. Family ambiance, lacking in decor eg. no plants, plastic dining chairs, table cloths on some tables only. Menu includes fresh local fish dishes creatively presented and usual steak or burger. Good promo offer of $5.00 on your next visit! Server Katy very attentive, dinner Best choice... More

This place is easy to find and a 2 minute walk from the Ferry. Sitting on the deck in the sunshine literally over the water, was a real treat. The service was great, the server very pleasant and the food was excellent. The prices are good and the value is excellent. I would recommend a visit here for sure!

Very serene and peaceful right by the water, and about 5 min. walk from the ferry terminal. We didn't mind the slow service as we were in no rush and already in vacation mode. The Caesar's drink was a wise choice to cool down during the sunny afternoon. The burger and fish and chip were as ordered, so they were... More

Nice location by the marina, but lacks some personality. Some background music and more comfortable chairs would be a good start. Nothing spectacular or innovative about the food, but you can get a very decent meal for a reasonable price - good variety of fish and seafood, steaks, burgers, pasta. I had the scallops (came with roasted sweet peppers, pilaf... More
