Great location - the start of the Lake Cowichan "river float"....(rent tubes & take a couple hours to float down the river)...
Good food & very sweet (young) waitresses. One of our friends we were dining with has major alergy issues & they were able to accommodate - impressive!

Plenty of choice on the menu, good portions, well presented and served by friendly staff. Make sure you make a reservation as this place gets very busy. Live music on some nights which can be noisy - so ask to be seated away from the live band if this will be more comfortable for you and your party.

Waitresses sweet but was it their mistake? Waited 45 minutes for food delivery, and that was even after complaining 35 minutes in. Husband said his beefburger was fine, mine looked and tasted like scrumps (batter pieces from fish and chip shops)

Nice setting on the lake, good service, somewhat funky cooking smells, perhaps the best Halibut fish n chips we have ever had. BUT the micro-brew beer was nasty! No wonder some breweries remain MICRO!

We spent the day cycling from Victoria. We were hungry and tired. The staff were fantastic and made very good suggestions. The beer was cold and the food was good and plentiful.
