“late night pub food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2009

We got into town quite late, and needed to eat; The restaurant was closed, but the pub was open. The food was pretty good - we split an order of mussels, had the pan fried oysters, and my husband ordered a burger with salad. Plus 2 beers. Service was good, food came out quick. A successful late night pub dining experience.

“Really bad food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2009

My extended family of 5 adults had dinner at the Shady Rest during July 2009. The seafood crepes were a dish of orange glop with a crepe and a few tiny shrimp. The seared ahi tuna was served with what looked like a white gravy on top -- totally inappropriate. In general, all fish dishes had inappropriate sauces that ruined the food. 3 members of our party had salmon, and it was grossly overcooked.
The service was decent, and the view from our table was good. Had the food also been decent, the prices were reasonable. However, for what we had, we felt really ripped off.

“Shady Rest Restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2009

Nice patio with a view. OK halibut fish and chips, a bit greasy. OK cheeseburger. Good soup of the day. Lemongrass coconut chicken was yummy and perfect for a cool day. Nice server, spent the extra $ for the restaurant side rather than the pub side because there didn't seem to be smokers on the patio.

“Great View”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2008

If you want a view of the ocean this is a great place but the food and service are definitely lacking. There is a bar and outdoor patio which is great for a refreshment and snack but if you are looking for a good meal, look further!!
