“Impressive view!”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

This restaurant is found on Granville Island, down the stairs and around the corner from the Sandbar restaurant and situated on long False Creek. It's view is exquisite, service friendly, and worth a try.

“so so service but always good for a quick drink”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

After a day out watching whales, this was a simple place to drop in for a drink. Service was pretty miserable and perfunctory, the inside looked pretty drab with the exception of the washrooms which were very swish.
For a quick drink always worth a stop off.

“Overpriced and painfully slow service”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

I've been here many times, only because it is the closest watering hole to the ferry dock. The service is always super slow and the food is ridiculously overpriced. Save some money and frustration and head elsewhere.

“A Great Spot to Have a Beer by the Water”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

This is an awesome place to sit an relax while enjoying a beer and an appy. The staff are really friendly, and the tuna is amazing!

The only thing that brings this down to a 4 star is the somewhat higher prices. But other than that, it is well worth the visit!

“Great at any time of year”

We had a lovely lunch on a winter Sunday, watching the boats and the people. Good food at reasonable prices, nice selection of drinks, friendly service.
