Casual restaurant Sechelt/Halfmoon Bay

We are arriving in the Sechelt/Halfmoon Bay area fairly late in the day on August 3rd, BC Day. Can anyone recommend a casual restaurant (I will absolutely not be putting on a face after a long day of travel) serving local fish or other seafood that will be open for a 7:00pm (or later) dinner?

There is some fantastic dining here:

My first thought was the Blue Heron but they are not open Mondays. So:

Casual atmosphere in Sechelt: Magellan’s – now a family restaraunt. We are going over to have dinner there tonight for the first time since they opened this season so I can let you know what the menu is like later. Had dinner there a couple of times when it was Magellan’s tapas and it was excellent seafood and tapas dining. We love the view – right beside the lighthouse. This is the old website (when it was tapas) but you can check out the restaurant and views:

Spence on the coast has the seafood menu you are looking for but the view is lacking. They are located right off the highway when you enter Sechelt (near the hospital and across the parking lot from Extra Foods). Food is very good – some peeps dress up, some don’t. I consider it casual.

The Rockwater in Secret Cove: I have only been here once for a business retreat and the food was very good. It is waterfront dining and the big pacific site lists it as casual. The menu looks good.

I keep hearing great things about The Painted Boat Resort in Halfmoon Bay. I have not been there yet but it is on my list to check out before October. Check out the website –if you scroll to the bottom you can view the menus in PDF format:

Also – check out big pacific website – there are plenty more to check out.

The menu at Magellan’s is basically the same as the Lighthouse Pub menu. There is some pasta choices the pub does not offer (the linguini and seafood sauce is very good) and of course a little kid’s menu. There is not really a seafood selection but they do serve the best mussels ever!

Thanks for the review. I think we'll try Magellan's tonight.
