The short lived Gryphon's Lair ceases operations late last summer. We dines there on 2 occasions neither I which was memorable for the food, service or atmosphere. It appears that another restaurant is preparing to open there but it has been a while with little perceptible activity.

the restaurant has since closed permanently, Duh! no surprise here! They could not cook a decent meal and after mentioning it to management they simply did not care and defended their cook.

They are changing from a pub? type of restaurant to a Bavarian one. Lets hope they find better chefs than they've had in the past. They need to concentrate on their food rather than their decor. We need a different kind of restaurant in this area. Too many Mediterranean, Italian
restaurants around. Let's hope they keep the prices reasonable and stop comparing Ladysmith/Cedar to Victoria and Vancouver, that's like comparing an apple and an orange. I think if they served smaller senior portions at better prices they'd do a lot better. Many, many of us can afford to eat out often but NOT at expensive restaurants. They'd do so much better if they realized that good food and reasonable prices brings local customers back. Being just off the highway doesn't mean great volume in customers it's the locals that keep you in business

Steak and lasagna are a combination I always look forward to.
This place makes some great combinations. All the way from a scruptious hamburger to the top of the line steak.
Couple of downsides: no baked potato as a choice , wait times between the salad an entree too long and the prices keep creeping up.
Otherwise the service is spot on and the atmosphere is inviting.
