We were at a pre-wedding get together of about 30 people of all ages. The group was spread out across the patio so socializing required circulating. The staff provided good service and the food was good for the money, though certainly not anything special.

Atmosphere is great, awesome drink selection and our server was the best we've ever had. Quick, pleasant and knew what we wanted before we even knew.

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.

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
