“One of the best Caesar salad dressing in town!”
Review of Chad's West Coast Grill and Bar - CLOSED

Reviewed September 3, 2014 via mobile

We had the Wednesday special of two entrees, second one 1/2 price. Ordered Caesar salad (with extra dressing on the side it's so yummy). We also each ordered the blackened sirloin steaks (8oz). (Steak entree normal price $21). Steaks cooked just right.

It was a very delicious meal and we will go back again!

This same restaurant (same owners) used to be Applebee's and it was subpar type quality, since changing to Chad's, a huge improvement has been made! For example, they now have a homemade style Caesar salad dressing (as mentioned), such an improvement!!!! It's now, in my opinion, one of the best dressings in Courtenay.

We will go back again. Good service and good food this dinner experience.

As a long time Atkins Dieter, it is sometimes difficult to get a decent meal from a number of restaurants. Chads were more than willing to replace the rice (Curry Dish) with vegetables. The food was Hot (and nicely spicey) and a really good portion of the curried meat and vegetables.

Unfortunately they didn't have a LOW CARB Beer or it would have been perfect.

Really good food & cocktails here. Stayed just down the road & this was the ideal location for a bite to eat. The place wasn't very busy but nonetheless the service & food was very good. I had the crispy coated parmesan chicken with pasta & there was enough to feed 2 people. I just loved it. The seasoning was perfect.

This is just on your right as you come off the highway and is well worth the stop. It's great for families with a wide appeal menu and a wonderful burger selection. It's made in house and not frozen-yum.
-I had a house made beef & barley soup and great house salad that was better than I could make. It seems popular with the locals and that's always a good sign.
-I like the booth set up for small groups and families. The atmosphere is appealing and tastefully decorated. Staff was friendly and gave good suggestions.
Try it, you won't be disappointed. Medium priced menu.

Ive been to chads twice in the last two weeks and its been REALLY REALLY good !! I was reluctant to go but now that i have i am so glad that we did ! Where to start...well first thing you need to know is that chads has the best calamari in town ! It is deep fried with banana peppers and jalepenos mmmmm !!! so far the parties i have gone with have ordered the sirloin steak, alfredo , butter chicken, pad thai, avocado sandwich, Burger, and the kids pasta ......and get this ...THEY WERE ALL DELISH ! Give Chads a try. They have great prices and deals everyday of the week and after 8pm $3 off every appetizer and pizza. Can hardly believe how great our experiences have been . Good food, good service and great atmosphere
