I've been here a few times and it's your standard diner fare - burgers, soups, sandwiches, steaks, bit of everything. They do a great job of fish & chips and seafood chowder, and it's a great location with a view of the harbour.

The Waterfront restaurant is on the Waterfront, in the heart of Gibsons, steps from Molly's Reach, and the pier at the foot of School Street. The view is excellent, 150 degree views of Shoal Channel, Keats Island and the Harbour entrance. The decor, like Molly's Reach, is 70's and 80's vintage, and it adds to the charm as you walk...

The place has a nice view of the Sound, coffee is average, the food is the usual American style food. Maybe they could use a specialty item to draw people in more.

I had the halibut dinner and was very disappointed. The fish was very thin and dry. It looked like it had been reheated. The vegetables were atrocious --completely overcooked and soggy. I would not be surprised if they were frozen. My wife had fish and chips. Again the fish was tasteless but the chips were OK. It is such a... More

Went here because Mollys was closed on a Thursday, and this place turned out to be lovely. Beautiful view of the harbor, an involved owner who clearly appreciated our business, quiet inside, good fish, reasonable prices, excellent beer and wine very well-priced.

We (family of six) had dinner here twice and ordered about 8 different meals between us. All of the meals were very good and the portions were very generous, even the senior sized meals. Prices are very reasonable. On both occasions we received friendly and fast service. The view is absolutely gorgeous. The building and furniture might be a bit... More

Nice place to eat, with amazing view! Service was great, food was excellent! Lots of menu selections to choose from. We both had the fish & chips and loved every bite! The seafood chowder looked so good, we will have to go back to Gibsons to try it!

Well, not what I had anticipated after seeing pics, somewhat outdated, cobwebs high in the rafters and I don't mean just a few, carpet was kinda icky but the food was halfway decent. I had the seafood fettuccine in a cream sauce, big portion, just didn't have a wow factor that I was hoping for. My husband had a curry... More

We had a very nice meal while at the restaurant. We enjoyed the wonderful views of the harbour and surrounding area. The halibut dinner was excellent and beer was cold and refreshing. Very relaxing atmosphere.
