Not only is this place is suffering from a total identity crisis menu & decor wise, they couldn't even get pizza right ( it was doughy/soggy, bland and overpriced) Not a fan.

It can be a little hard to find a restaurant that's open on Marine Drive in Powell River when you are on foot with your elderly mother! So it's really good that this restaurant keeps regular hours. It was an adequate meal. There's a very nice patio with a view. The wine list isn't great.
My advice when in Powell River; plan your meals carefully and if you are foot check the hours of the restaurants. DON'T FORGET TO CHECK TRIP ADIVISOR!! Bad planning makes for a bad meal experience....

I had the baked spaghetti - would order that again. Most menu items are recognizable from burgers to steaks - the patio option is also nice as it overlooks the water view.

The people who cook here have no idea how to and should be in a different business. The food mostly comes out of packages. Nothing fresh, seasonal or local here. Digusting gooey pizza and pastas with gloppy sauce. The fries were soggy and came with a side of canned BEEF gravy. The place is popular for some reason. People who have no taste buds, I suspect

This is a review written while in Snickers with the profanity subtracted:

"I'm sitting in Snickers "Pizza and Steak House" with its Greek-style decor and menu and odd framed posters of music and actor greats from the Golden Age of Hollywood. It's obviously a little confused.

The food, however, is not confused: it's total crap. For the same price, Steve in Deep Bay [who ran Ship and Shore Cafe/General Store/On-water Refueling Station/Campground serving "Oceanside's Best Fish & Chips" - a misnomer since it was Oceanside's only restaurant], made me a better burger and had the good sense to not serve it open-faced, but Snickers has served as wide open as the sky is blue and revealed the distributor-bought patties and - oh my god - a single slice of processed cheese, probably Kraft. The Canuck Burger is a "1/2 pound burger with bacon and smoked chedar." The only reason it's a 1/2 pound is because it says "1/4 pound patties" on the box and they stuck two of them in this bland bun!

Chef Ramsey would have thrown this food at the cook's face then beat the owners with the now greased-to-death cook's severed arm.

The music isn't even canned - it's radio. And the caesar salad? Standard, but with soggy croutons!

Oh, and there's a depressed deciduous tree in the corner still decorated wtih Christmas balls and lights [it's mid-May]. The ceiling is painted seafoam with stars that look like a macroscaped kindergarten picture smattered with potato shapes. The decorator obviously hasn't seen Debbie Travis or any of Home and Garden Network's fine programming. It isn't even in the lines.

The drink menu has a 'From the Tap' section. What's on tap? Canadian and... that's it. Snickers, you slay me. Literally. 'Cause I might vomit my heart out tomorrow morning."

Best avoid this place for your mental and physical health.
