Happened upon this place as it was across from the hotel we were staying at. We didn't know what to expect, and we were pleasantly surprised by an above-average experience. Good service, very tasty food (we had steak and Kung Pow...the restaurant focuses on using local ingredients) and generous portions. Cheerful atmosphere as well. Look forward to returning next time... More

Nice interior sort of a modern look, with a sports bar attitude. Decent selection of draft beers. Food/menu shows some creativity. Staff is great helpful and always there no matter what you need. Had the Renben and it was excellent. Had music the night I ate there. Can't say I loved the band but they gave it all they had.

We were just passing when driving through Courtenay, glad we did. The food was tasty and the service was good. Inexpensive too.

I've been to fluid several times. Service has always been pretty slow. Most recently I Went in with 12 people, and it took over an hour and a half to receive our food. There was one other large table and few small tables with people, but it wasn't a busy place. My dinner was missing a few key ingredients, but... More

Was I not impressed. Chunk of under cooked meat and tasteless. Yes I ordered with out spices but it was old and tough and I asked for medium and got raw. Mom asked for well and got rare. I have been cooking in restaurants for years and I could have done better blindfolded. The vegetables were a joke and again... More

I've always had good food here, but when you go with a group of 4 or more, someone at the table will usually get food that isn't good. A bit of a gamble.

Frequented by a young rowdy crowd, the drink specials are pretty good but the food is only average, the burger is too spicy and service is hit and miss - won't be going back soon as there are way better restaurants in Courtenay like Atlas and Local's to spend your $$ at.

Place was great. The hostess wasn't overly friendly, kind of sat us really quickly and said 'drink menus are on the card'. Our server was great - she suggested the Brie appie and it was really tasty. Only complaint - they should cut the crostinis all the way through. Had to use our fingers a lot to tear them apart.... More
