We have been a couple of times to this place for drinks and appetizers. Always a nice stop off after a day of exploring Tofino.

Staff is very nice, and they even kept my handbag behind the counter after I forgot it there for a few hours.

Sit on the patio if you can, watch fisherman bring in their catch and converse with the various sea birds that hang out on the railings

We go to Tofino every year and every since time we enjoy this pub! Easy, no frills, great time and bear ;)

Would defenitely recommend, and they occasionally have a band playing live music.

TIP: there is a mini-marina attached to the pub, it is one of the most wonderful, beautiful places to take a picture in during the sunset. I love this place at night too....amazing scenery and serenity feeling. I can't describe how much I love this tiny place on earth.

Thank you very much for your review of Jack's Pub, we are lucky to have a great property here at Marina West and we encourage guests to experience all facets of it! We definitely do our best to get live performers up here on the wild wet coast, Fridays and Saturdays are our usual live music bookings.

Look us up next time you are in town and hopefully we will have some great entertainment for you no matter what day of the week.

Thanks again
The Marina West Team

Sometimes when we travel, we just want a simpler meal, grab a pint and relax around locals having fun. There are some good restaurants in Tofino with clean tablecloths and quiet atmosphere. But Jack's is more fun with a pool game in the corner, hockey on TV and friendly people to strike up some conversation. The restaurant side of Jack's was dead in November, but the bar was active and also provided a full menu. We ordered fish and chips (what else in a sea town), and the cod was well prepared, but the chips just ok. The server was friendly and helpful and overall we enjoyed the evening out. Being right on the waterfront added to the atmosphere.

We agree that Tofino has some great places to eat and drink! Just like you said we know our niche down here at Marina West and we do our best to do it well. Your recent review is much appreciated and it is great to hear that you enjoyed our laid back atmosphere. I apologize that your french fries were not up to standard and I have alerted the culinary team in hopes that we can assure that doesn't happen anymore.

Look forward to seeing you next time you're on the coast.

Sincerely,

The Marina West Team
