“Good portions, excellent food!3”
Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

Good portions, and excellent food. Had a cup of the candied salmon chowder and the cajun salmon. Both were excellent, although the main dishes did take a while to arrive.

“The Starboard Grill, Port Alberni, B.C..”
Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

The Starboard Grill is a very cosy restaurant and It is a perfect place for an Anniversary dinner! The food has obviously been given a lot of care and personal attention by Chef Brad. It is so nice to get a piece of meat that hasn't been cooked to death and is juicy and beautifully prepared.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Have been twice. The decor is stark and cold. Meat (burger patty & steak) is undercooked. Both meals were lukewarm and bland. The service, both times, was excellent but I won't be going back a third time.

“Finally a proper restaurant at Harbour Quay!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

With just 2 or 3 real restaurant choices in Port Alberni, this is a welcome additon! Last Tues I had their signature burger and a side of candied salmon chowder. Excellent! Today I tried the crusted tuna burger with pork loin split pea soup and wow! What a perfect burger! Thanks to Brad for bringing something great to our waterfront!

“Tunatastic”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Went for lunch and had the indian candy chowder and seared tuna burger, my wife had a hamburger. We both had salads as sides, starboard salad for me and cesar for her. The chowder was actually amazing. I thought it maybe too rich and it wasn't. It was great. Our burgers arrived and they looked awesome. Wifes was cooked nicely and ever so juicy. My tuna was perfectly seared while nice and rare. The salads we had were both nice and fresh too. Loved the roasted pumpkin seeds. Overall an excellent lunch. Can't wait to try their dinners
