“Great fish n chips”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

We stopped here for dinner after a day of kayaking and were pleased we did. We started with the mediteranian dips (hommus, tzatziki, olive tapenade with flat bread) with generous servings of all three dips, the fresh garlicy hommus a particular highlight.

We then both ordered the fish and chips, subbing yam fries. The fish was battered and fried, but not overly oily like so many places. The fish (cod) was fresh too, which you would hope is the case when surrounded by the sea! The yam fries were tasty as always while the side slaw was about the same as you would find at most pubs. The setting is also hard to beat - sitting on the deck overlooking Sechelt Inlet at sunset.

“Food Average; Service Apathetic”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We visited the Lighthouse Pub on a Saturday night expecting the prime rib feature (according to their website). Had to settle for ribs and a pizza. Apparently, Friday night is now Prime Rib Night. The ribs were tough and smothered in a very sweet barbecue sauce. The pizza had little flavour. The waitress didn't even ask about our food and only showed up again to present the cheque. At least the view was good...

DGS27, General Manager at Lighthouse Pub, responded to this review, October 9, 2012
I am very disappointed to hear about the experience you had on your recent visit. The out-dated website is all on me... My fault - I apologize and will be making the website a priority for the future... I also apologize for the food quality which was not satisfactory. We work very hard on the product that comes out of the kitchen. Our reviews and customer feedback has always been very positive regarding the food. Our servers are trained to check up on tables and correct issues immediately. This didn't happen. That was the huge failing. I have responded by dealing directly with your server already... She will not be permitted to make this mistake again. I would like to make a personal guarantee that your next visit will be a better experience.

“Good food and view”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Very scenic spot for a bite to eat and a beer. Don't expect too much in the way of service though!! Peel and eat shrimp are awesome and if you can get a spot on the deck, you might even overlook the slow service.

“Better than you'd think”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We were here 7 years ago and the only thing I remembered was the view. The view is still incredible and we were happily surprised how GOOD our burgers were! My husband even said he thought it was one of the better ones ever, and he likes his burgers. This is the place the locals go so you know you're getting good value. We'll be back on our next trip!
