Great food specials, noisy atmosphere. Generally poor service, but decent pub food and good portions. not somewhere you'd go for atmosphere or ambience, and servers really don't seem to care.

Middle of the road Pub. Friendly and helpful people working there certainly. Does get busy so it must be these people that are the appeal. It isn't the food or atmosphere. Enjoyed the wheat beer though!

We were headed to the island and wanted to meet with our kids first and decided to drive out to Chemainus as my cousin had told me about a pub next to the hotel he stays at when in area for work. We found the hotel and seeing as this was the closest pub, we decided to drop to try the wings he suggested. They were okay, but the sauces tasted like after thoughts and did not get into the wings. I had a seafood appy and it was prepared nicely, but nothing that stood out as a signature dish. The kids had their taco salads and said they satisfied them. It was okay, but not the greatest, and to have both my dad and husband comment they were not fussy about the wings was a surprise.

Service is not always the best and food is average.
