Lost my appetite at your restaurant. Cooking was amateur: mistakes, wrong sauces, some items underdone, some burnt or not at all as menu described... Please train staff and bring Shinglemill back to its former glory! Don't serve dishes if you don't have the ingredients to make them. Your customers aren't dumb. We won't be back. If this seems harsh, consider... More

Went to the shingle mill with my family for some appys and drinks with my family. The waitress was all around amazing. The drink specials were reasonably priced and well made. The food was well cooked and all came at the same time. The view of powell lake and the boats was a refreshing break from typical tvs. Would suggest... More

VIews are gorgeous across Powell Lake, the marina, the wooded hills. And the pub was built to give almost everyone a great view. What should be a destination pub really could use a few tweaks. Local Township beer is offered - which is a great thing. Chowder and the fish'n'chips were solid. But...the green salad was lacking imagination, the club... More

Service was very slow, food is basic....ordered the beef dip.. served with gravy not au jus. Salads were like premixed from a grocery store. Ordered some drinks...they did not come, so we cancelled them. After we got home... we notice they still charged us. First warning was when we over heared from the table behinds us that they have been... More

Good food and service. We arrived at a busy time, and the server apologized and told us she would be with us as soon as possible. Very friendly and attentive once she had a moment to catch her breath. Beautiful location, great meals, and wonderful experience. Will definitely be back the next time we find ourselves in Powell River

We were told about the Shinglemill by the innkeeper at our hotel. He suggested we could walk there, which we did. It was about a kilometer so it gave us a chance to experience the Old Townsite and the natural beauty of the Powell River. We were not prepared for the beauty that awaited us, however. The Shinglemill is located... More

Lovely environment to watch boats in a small Marina nestled in the Mountains. Food was pub food, not bad, clam chowder was great. Service slightly slow, but the wait staff was very pleasant. I would visit again when in the area.

Had the fish and chips - both of us - and pronounced it one of the worst we've ever had. Cold, soggy and fishy. I've eaten at the place a half-dozen times (when dragged by friends or family) and don't think I've ever had a decent meal. It's probably okay if you stick to a burger and play some Keno.

First encounter with the Shingle Mill Restaurant and was pleasantly impressed. Were there because of a memorial service for a dear friend, but the beautiful, peaceful setting and the abundantly attentive staff really made all the difference in the overall atmosphere. We were in a somewhat private room/area which was tastefully arranged with our own personal server, Leanne, who was... More
