The choices in Port McNeill are a bit slim, but Gus' and the Sportsmans' duke it out side by side on the main strip. We chose the latter, largely because one of our party wanted draught beer. Hardworking staff, largish menu to suit a variety of tastes. The winners were the salads- the Cobb Salad was huge and tasty, the... More

We spent a night in Port McNeill and had a late supper at Gus's pub. It was a busy evening and the servers were flying but very friendly and efficiently took our orders, kept our drinks topped and served our meal in a timely manner. Hubby had the steak sandwich and said it was the best steak he'd had in... More

Decent enough place considering the options. I will have to give a shout out to the Bar Tender. Place was fairly busy and only 2 people working. She was busting her tail.

Gus's Pub has a very extensive menu for a pub offering many many choices! It is large pub with plenty of seating inside and out. Very friendly staff! View is of the marina and the strait. Can get super busy very quickly! We really enjoyed ourselves and our burgers at Gus's and definitely will be back!

This is clearly the local watering hole. The food is about what you would expect. Good to absorb the beer your having with it and gets better as you drink more. The room is cold and doesn't make you want to stay long. The service was decent and the food did take a while on a slow afternoon. The bathrooms... More

First time to Port McNeill ... nice place, saw the empty deck of the pub and since it was a nice day we decided to settle in for lunch. Nice view of the harbor, yes nice looking menu etc but it stopped there. I ordered fish and chips, the fish was very small for the price,now I know why they... More

Sorry. Good view of the harbour. Nice waitress. Very very poor food. Fish was advertised as tempura battered. It was encased in a greasy doughy crust. 2 ounces of not bad cod in each piece. Fries were extruded - many steps from potatoes. We enjoyed the Olympic coverage.

This place is a convenient stop with a nice view. Food is pretty darn good. I would return. Exceeded my expectations for the North island.

We chose Gus' because it was a very short walk from the marina, and one of us had been there before. The beer choice is a bit limited and not very interesting, but the food was fine. The service was a bit slow, primarily because the place was busy and there wasn't enough wait staff. When we went a second... More

Gus' Bar and Grill is located close to the Marina and Ferry docks. They have a nice patio (weather permitting) with a view of the Marina and across Broughton Strait. We happened to catch it on a nice sunny day and enjoyed drinks while waiting for the boat. Service was fast and friendly and seemed like some interesting choices on... More
