“Fish and Chips”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Spend part of the year in Mexico and must have fish and chips before I leave and then immediately when I return. Can´t speak to the other items on the menu, cause I can´t get past the fish and chips..dream about fish tacos when in Canada and fish and chips when in Mexico.

“live band And a view worth waiting for!”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

My wife and I enjoy this Ocean-side Pub several times a year, and we 've never been disappointed.
They often have live bands,(sometimes jazz,sometimes rock) but it's always in good taste.
Speaking of taste, the Best fish and chips I've ever had. They offer a wide variety of fresh, local entres' and appies, as well as a well stocked bar with a large choice of beers on tap!
This place is well worth the trip to Scenic, Cowichan Bay.

“Beer, burger and life in the "Bay"”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Great clam chowder friendly staff. One of he best places to enjoy the activity in Cowichan Bay- last year that included a pod of killer whales. We eat here often, the food is consistently good and staff friendly and efficient.

“Good Food & View”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Most Pubs are dark and dingy. Not this one , It has a great view of Cowichan Bay . I found Staff to be very good and friendly. The food is very good. My wife's favorite is the Yorkie. I really enjoy the Oyster Burger. We've only been there for lunches and find it very relaxing.

“Frenchie say Chowder....”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Typical pub, typical pub food, and sometimes wait staff to be desired. Live music and a pretty good view of Cow Bay. The chowder is good, can't say the best but it does do very well. Wing night can be a crazy night out. Get there early so you dont miss out on the wings.
