“Great establishment - poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

It seems as though you need to flash your tip before you get served in order to get any type of respect in this 'joint'. I've had good and bad experiences with Breaker's Pub, so I'd say they are pretty 'hit or miss'. The menu contains pretty good pub food and their drink list is out of this world (try the After Dinner Mint). The waitresses, well some of them, can be pretty cut and dry (no conversation) and it seems as though every time we go in around 930 we get forced out around 1030 by them turning off lights and tv's, turning off drink machines, asking you to pay your bill even if they aren't closed. I'm a local waitress myself and I'm all for getting home to see my family but at the same time I also know customer service and I wouldn't rush 3 tables of patrons to finish their food and drinks if business hours still say "open". If you don't want to stay past 10 then the business hours should be closed at 10. Overall, good food, mediocre service and an okay experience.

“Still good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

It has been 25 years since I was last at The Breakers, and I'm pleased to report that it is still a cozy pleasant spot for a beer and pub meal. Perhaps the service wasa bit slow, but not enough to be an irritant and the staff were all most pleasant and helpful. The Breakers Burger and the calamari are worth a try. The view of the fishing docks really puts this spot on the map. Like everything in Canada it seemed expensive to us.

“Interesting pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

Interesting building. I would have liked to have been in there on rough seas.
The service was mediocre.
The saving grace was the fresh halibut and chips. It was fabulous.
