“Hard to find but worth it”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

I am not sure who ever built a pub in this location or why ? it is remote, far from any center of stores in CR and overgrown with trees in the front so much so that I have driven down that road numerous times and not seen it ....
So first trip in, the place is nice, open, well lit and the staff I encountered were extrememly friendly ! I believe her name was Tracey and she even introduced herself and shook my hand. She recognized I was a first timer and certainly was welcoming and friendly.
The beer, was cold and good, Tracey even asked if I wanted a cold glass which I appreciate as I love my beer cold !
The food .... what to have, well was tempted for the burger as it used to be anyone could make a good burger, but like common sence that too is not common anymore ! I decided on the Moroccan which was a chicken with caramelized onions on focaccia bread ! it came with their homemade fried. Ok first the sandwich, the flavor was very good ! I would have preferred a larger piece of chicken but the flavor was all there ! the home made fries were also great .... amoung the best I have had. Often they taste like a potatoe but these were great ! nice size, done right, not overcooked and tasty !
So only think left is the price, the meal at 10.95 to me was entirely within reason as the helping was a good size and taste was great !
No complaints, will go again !

“Straight up great pub”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Sometimes you just want to grab a beer, be served quickly, order a burger and play some keno. This place provides exactly that. The staff are quick to refill your pint and love to have a laugh. Campbell river isn't very exciting in winter but this pub is sure to warm you up.

“Great place for quiet lunch”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Through the day, the Willows is a quiet, comfortable place to meet. The food is great....best fish and chips in town, and the service is prompt, friendly and professional. This is a favorite place for lunch with friends.
