Discovered this spot while in line for the ferry at lunch time, on a warm sunny day. Have been back for the same reason, and each time order the tempura oyster burger and fries, which are excellent! The open air feeling and quick service add to the experience!

Nice atmosphere, good simple menu and very responsive service. Steps away from the ferry is a comfortable restaurant for all ages.

This place is the best!!! I love the oysters in the half shell that are all sourced locally throughout the Salish Sea. The tuna salad is the bomb.com and is a must try when you visit. Ive been to many an oyster bar and am the president of a company that owns oyster leases and eats a ton of oysters... More

I was in the hood so stopped in for a treat. If you hit happy hour some very good deals mon-fri 3-5. You can watch for your ferry from here while having a cold beer. The halibut burger on special has the clients raving about how good it is. 6 great beers on tap. Friendly staff and very clean!

We visited this Restaurant when we were dropping our son to the Horseshoe Bay Ferry. Dry warming reception and super service. We ordered the Mussels to share for an appetizer and they were excellent. My son had the fresh carbonara. My wife had the ling cod and I had the fish and chips. All were delivered in quick time and... More

We were in the area to see the beautiful Horseshoe Bay and stopped at this restaurant. We both had the fish n chips and they were so good, not to much batter so you can enjoy the fish. Service was fast and the view of the bay was wonderful. If you are ever in this area this is great place... More

I am a local and this is one of my favorite spots for dinner. It's casual, busy and they serve delicious food. One of my favorite dishes is the seafood linguine. It never disappoints. The seafood is fresh and the spicing perfect. The staff are friendly and efficient. It can sometimes be a bit noisy so not appropriate for hearing... More

It never fails, lunch or dinner, this restaurant offers great quality food, fast service, reasonable pricing and a relaxed atmosphere. We have gone as a couple, with friends, with business associates and we have seen families with young children and every time we are content. The menu is varied from burgers to seafood to bowls etc. Pasta and fish also... More

I would rate this 3.5 stars but the TripAdvisor system doesn't allow half star. My hubby's friend took us to Olive & Anchor in Horseshoe Bay for lunch after visiting Capilano Suspension Bridge on a week day. Nice setting, looked popular but not crowded. My husband had the fried halibut, bacon and blue cheese burger with fries, his friend the... More
