Big room, with a few smaller, cozier spaces as well, with standard pub decor and food. Staff is friendly, food is OK, if you are looking for a safe bet, this isn't bad - just nothing special.

This is a classic British Columbia Neighbourhood Pub. Reasonable service, lots of locals, sports on the TV screens, craftsman style exterior and interior, pub food, medium lighting. They had a surprisingly good selection of Scotches - we had Lagavulin which is my favourite. They have gluten free beer, and are aware of Gluten on the menu.

I met friends here for lunch on my way to Pender Harbour. I had the brie and cranberry sandwich with fries and it was totally delish. Toasted fresh bread, perfectly melted brie made more interested with cranberry sauce. The service was a five star experience. I highly recommend this spot!

I think we got our basket of onion rings in under three minutes. Breakfast on Saturday and dinner on Sunday, phenomenal service and great food! If you're coming to or from the ferry and need a bite, don't hesitate to come here.

The Blackfish is a busy place but the staff really do their best to serve you quickly. It's nicest in winter when we can sit by the fireplace and feel warm. The food is good though nothing spectacular. Good fish and chips and a variety of salads with 15 percent off on seniors nights. The wine is expensive especially if... More

This pub used to be mediocre at best, however it has much improved in both food and beer selection - both areas very important for a pub! It has a moderate selection of beers, both local and not. The food was good, but definitely not great. I would certainly return here as it is both convenient for location and sufficient... More
