I went for the "Sooke Salmon Salad" for my first visit at the Honey Pot; not an easy choice when the temptation for delicious burgers wafts over from the table next to you... But I stood my ground.

I was not disappointed with the salad, it wasn't a knock-out, but it was better than I expected from a place best known for burgers and steak. It almost justified the $18 price. One comment I will make about this dish is that there was a gratuitous use of dressing, so much that it drowned out the flavour of the fish... That could be a pro or con, depending if 'tasting fishy' is your kind of thing.

The service was FANTASTIC! I was in and out in 45 minutes, and I didn't feel rushed at all. The servers were very prompt with the drinks, menu, and food - and pleasant to boot! I'd definitely go back again.

One caveat:
I sat in the back of the restaurant, and didn't have cell phone service. Not sure if it was the spot I was sitting, my cell phone provider (Rogers), or the whole building... So if you're by yourself, you might want to line yourself up with a TV so you have something to amuse you.

We stopped in last Friday night -- travelling through, we asked locals where to go.

A busy place -- we had to wait about 1/2 hour for a table as both the restaurant and bar were full. As others have noted, it is unusual in small town Alberta to find such a busy restaurant.

Anyway, we really enjoyed our meal.

I sat in the bar as the restaurant was full and I had no reservation. Since it was Monday and a pub, I was surprised at that
The place is nice And has atmosphere for sure. I ordered the chicken burger and salad since they use frozen fries which is against my beliefs. I think frOzen French fries is a sin.
The burger was ok, I suspect that was frozen and fried, and the salad just ok - again! not home made from what I can tell! just standard bags of romaine maybe and dressing. But the let use was fresh. The burger bun was white and soft , borderline pasty, too bad they couldn't offer some great home baked buns from someone local. Oh we'll, it's either that I ordered wrong or this place is all there is in town.
