Description: Quality Diner Fare, made with fresh product sourced as locally as permitted with everything prepared with care and attention by experienced, trained chefs and cooks. Breakfasts are made with local free run eggs, ham carved from the bone, hollandaise sauce is made daily from scratch, breads are freshly baked from Dave's Bakery in Campbell River. Whole turkey is roasted for club house sandwiches. Roast beef is roasted and carved for beef dips. Our gravy is house made from our roast drippings. We are proud of our Schnitzel with Porcini mushroom sauce, having a huge following of regular customers.

Food was great - waitress was rude and did everything but smile - a real grump! Did not want our business - said tables were needed for the 'regulars'. We were a group of retirees - not loud or demanding - we were quiet and polite. Won't be back

Ate here three times over five days, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food was awesome on each visit. Hard to find this kind of honest to goodness home made food anymore, but that's exactly what you will get here.

I have been a regular for over 10 years and the service is great and the food ( especially the gravy ) is some of the best you can ever get in a restaurant. Something has changed with their burgers lately. The bun has changed and is much too big for the patty and the patty was definately not 6 oz. But one disappointing experience in over 10 years is not something to be overly upset about. I brought this to their attention. I am sure they will bring back the burger that people drove 30 minutes out of their way to get.

I find I must speak out about the last two reviews as it is not in no way a reflection on what this place is. My husband and I come here at least once a week for our date night.
The service has always been excellent and food is the best in the Comox Valley.
The Chefs specials are always a treat. Last week we had duck, this week it is Roast Pork Dinner....we are looking forward to that tonight.
It is a small restaurant with only 20 plus seats and it does get very busy with people waiting for seats. But that is OK. The wait is worth it.

The servers were bitchy, and they’re mannerism was horrible. Got yelled at for no placing an order, and after waiting for our order 20+ minutes it wasn’t even started.
