The place was packed. Had a party of six without a reservation. Long wait but worth it. Pub style fish and chips, prime rib special and a pizza. Prime Rib and pizza were excellent. Fish was more Pub style than I like. Heavy breaking and a bit greasy. Excellent front staff. Service was good.

This place is busy.. Maybe to busy for its own good as their kitchen and service staff seem to not be able to keep up. I thought going in seeing how busy it was that this place must be good. After 55 minutes during which our server disappeared our food arrived. I had a recommended pork cutlet that had absolutely... More

Stopped here for lunch after a boat tour of the area. Very good seafood chowder and the fish and chips was awesome. Nice and clean, great service. The view of the ocean was fantastic. No complaints at all,

We had dinner here. The food was very good. This seems to be where the locals eat & drink so a good recommendation in our opinion.

Join the crowd, a mixture of locals and tourists, having a good time watching sports, playing pool, punching the gambling machines and chatting-sports bar atmosphere, food is the usual-salads, burger, sandwiches, appetizers, lots of beer, some view of the Port Hardy Bay. Won't go wrong in this middle of road pub and food is very good..

Would like to give this 3.5 blobs, service a bit shambolic but pleasant. Prime rib on Friday and Saturday night really good, probably best to book in season for these. Port Hardy is not dripping with good eateries, so this is our favourite place for dinner by far.

Across the street from Pier Landing, a good place to go in the evening. Take advantage of the fresh seafood!
