We had a fabulous dinner at Jan's before going to a show at the Blue Frog. There were 4 of us, we all had something different and every dish was knockout great! We shared the spicy thai curry mussel and beet salad as an appie. They were both delicious and it was more than enough for the 4 four us.... More

The Scallops are one of the best I have had. Never felt rushed or in need or service. The staff is great and view is something to be seen. Jan treats you like family. I will be back

Went there for brunch today. Beautiful outdoor patio on the waterfront. Great breakfast omelettes and beni's. Pricing was moderate and the view is worth it and the food was very good. Quite busy. Took us 45 min to be seated but just enough time for a walk on the pier. Worth the trip.

Went for Sunday brunch - most places around White Rock open at 10 or even 11 but Jan's is open at 9...and we like to start early. Jan was in the kitchen (which is separated from the room by a waist-high counter but entirely open - always fun to watch) and her daughter was serving. Family-run means family-worked here. The...

We were a group of 9 including 3 young children going for dinner. One adult and two of the children required gluten free choices. This restaurant rocks! The menu is amazing....so many choices...all reasonably priced. The service was great with our waitress anticipating our every need. The decor is comfortable with some seating outside under heat lamps. The portions are... More

Planned brunch elsewhere and when that didn't pan out we did a last minute search and ended up in this cozy, open-kitchen spot. We were welcomed by the cook who was happy to answer my questions (yes, everything is made scratch) and promptly brought waters and menus. We ordered mimosas (2/$10 today) and were pleasantly surprised at the "kick" to... More

I'm a local living close by and highly recommend Jan's on the beach. Very diversified menu, consistent good food and a big bonus, a room with a great view. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

We visited this fairly simple restaurant on the esplanade for lunch one Saturday. They make a point of advertising most (all?)of their food is gluten free, including the batter for their fish and chips. I tried it and found it pretty good. I don't have any issues with gluten myself and usually avoid gluten free food as the taste and... More

We waited and we waited and we waited for our brunch. The cook/ owner was extremely rude. She was also very understaffed. The staff that was there were superb, but the owner/cook told us to go next door if we did not like the service. I am disappointed because this place was once recommended for its food

Went here with a group of friends. Yam fries are good. Hubby had the clam chowder and Caeser Salad. Salad was pretty good, but the chowder was so-so. Serving size was a really large bowl. Told me I make better chowder. I had the Pecan, Shrimp Goat Cheese salad which was very tasty and perfect serving size.
