We had lunch at 1:00 on a Thursday afternoon; the restaurant was about 3/4 full. Our arrival was acknowledged immediately and we were seated shortly thereafter. We seemed to have two servers, one of whom was very efficient, and the other was not. She made minor mess ups with our order and had to be reminded to bring a coffee... More

The U/S Grill is recommended in many areas for Gluten free food. As a Celiac I just had to try it out. The menu is fantastic for choices and the food is great. If you read the website, it explains how they have converted all menu items to GF options. This includes all sauces, etc. I will eat here every... More

Title says it all except for the food. Might have been a bad day or new cook but the onions in quesidilla were burnt. Not tasty at all. Have had better in the past. Will be back to see if it improves. Very nice staff.

My son and I had planned to go to a different restaurant but without a reservation it would have been impossible. Time was short as we had another engagement to make. We popped into the Union Street Grill and were seated shortly. The staff was attentive and professional. There was a real mixed bag of patrons; seniors, young couples, families... More

We drove into Courtney on a Fall Monday for lunch. One of the few restaurants open was the Union Street Grill. What a lucky find. I'm not gluten intolerant, but was intrigued by the extensive gluten free menu. I chose the GF tuna tostada and Screamin's. The tuna tostada came with slices avocado and a wasabi sauce and other fixings.... More

Great choices on menu. There was 7 of us in our group. The best part of this meal was the fried oysters, very fresh and tasty. One of our group had the oyster burger and was a bit disappointed with it. The bun was too big for the oyster. I had chicken enchiladas which wasn't a traditional type of enchiladas,... More

Two restaurants share the same kitchen: "Union Street Grill" and the "Grotto" (adjacent). My wife and I prefer the informality of the Grotto (but the Grill is relaxed too). Be prepared to place your order "British pub style" on the Grotto side. Go to the cash register to get menus, go back with the order for your table, and pay... More

So we have been in Courtenay for a week, and generally feel a bit spoiled as we live in Victoria where there are tons of great places to eat. This by far for the value was the best we had all week! We had meals at Atlis the night before and were WAY disappointed. This place was so much better.... More
