“Very disappointing and expensive.”
Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

We found the menu somewhat limited, they didn,t have any of our usual favorites which you usually see at a pub like quesidillas , chef , Cobb or taco salads. They wouldn't,t get our money gain.

“The IPA is worth the trip”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

We have been patronizing this establishment since day 1 - everytime we come west every other year. The beers are fabulous, especially if one is into Hops. I am. Service has always been very friendly and accommodating. On this lunch visit, I was craving a grilled salmon (this is BC) sandwich which wasn't on the menu. "No problem" said our waitress...and it was great. My wife had a West Coast Salad, a pile of mixed greens with a slab of grilled salmon on top. Good stuff. Yes, they do have the usual pub grub, but it is definitely a cut above what I have usually had in most pubs, and better than several "gastropubs" we have visited.

The atmosphere is slick and inviting. No loud pounding music, comfy seating, and civilized clientele whenever we've visited.

But it's not the food that gets the rating. Red Racer IPA...on tap...enough said.

“Below average food and beverages”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Been here twice. Wont go again. Home brew beer has the same nasty aftertaste as other Micro wanna be brewers. Makes people feel special that they don't drink main stream beers, but other than that they are very unremarkable.
Food menu is glorified Pub fair. Not many main courses. If you want wings and burgers with beer that tastes like everyone else who does not want to taste like everyone else, then give it a shot.
If you want a good selection of mains, prepared well, then go somewhere else. The food here is unmemorable. Except when it is bad. That is why I remember it.

Layout is good. Too bad the food and beverages don't match it.
Very clean. Cavernous feeling. Staff were friendly and inviting. Service was just OK. No effort to address deficiencies.

Left a bad taste in my mouth...like their beer does.

There are so many other good places to eat, there is no need to waste you time stopping here. Way better Pubs with better food and beer. Way better Restaurants with better main selections.

“Enjoyed the IPA at CCBC”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

Have dined at CCBC for lunch many times. Enjoyed the IPA.

For simple lunch and good value, spinich salad with shrimp is always good.

Friendly staff, and always very accomodative of our groups of 10 and 12
