We decided to try this restaurant while we were in Winnipeg as we wanted some seafood and it looked like it was a good menu. They appeared to have a nice selection of food on the menu. The restaurant was a more of a dining room experience, so we chose to sit in the lounge which had a nice view... More

My sister and I had a great lunch. The food was very well prepared I had the seafood croissant it had lots of scallops, shrimp & crab. My sister had the Mandarin stir fry and she loved it. I had the peach crepes it was soooo good. Pricey

We went there for lunch today the burger was good i was happy to see something a little different. The gravy was bland like half Au jus and half gravy but no flavor. I'm happier I had a gift card and didn't spend any money. service was good there no issues

Made a reservation for 4 of us (2 couples) for 7:00 PM, got in and seated right away. Our waitress was terrible, I think her name was Bridgette. Basically ignored us upon arrival. did not get any bread basket until we asked, and it was cold. Looked at all the other tables around us, and saw the service was drastically... More

Anything other than the soup/appetizers can get quite expensive, especially for a student such as myself, but understandable as seafood has always been a more higher priced dish. The soup of day though, at such an incredible price, is ALWAYS an incredible dish and always very comforting to eat anytime I come to The Beachcomber. I've brought friends here since... More

I checked Tripadvisor looking for a good seafood option in Winnipeg, and found The Beachcomber. There were many unfavorable reviews - but there was also a smattering of positive reviews. Using the logic that more people will write to complain than to compliment, we assumed we had a better than 50% chance of having a nice meal. Also, the owner... More

Been there in the summer, the patio is full of bugs and mosquitoes, wasps etc. Inside was full of people. Also constantly felt a whiff of cigarette smoke from some people that made it impossible to enjoy food. The staff should enforce the no-smoke rule more adamantly.

The Beachcomber was chosen as a central location to hold committee meetings for an organization I belong to. Ten or twelve us met a few times and they were able to accommodate us in a semi private area. There was something on the menu to please everyone. It is now one of my favourite places to meet friends for lunch... More

We used skip the dishes and ordered in. Where do I start....mushrooms caps with crab and cream cheese - caps were flat...how does that happen? Each cap about the size of a quarter, six of them with about only 1/3 of a teaspoon of filling in each - unbelievable, the smallest I have ever seen anywhere. Crab cakes - I'll... More

Hi Nicky, First of all, thank you for choosing to dine with us through Skip The Dishes. We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your experience. There are certain dishes, like would be in any restaurant, that don't travel well when taken out of the restaurant. Quesadillas would be a perfect example, this is not an excuse, however we feel...

I was at this restaurant with a group of 10 people for my brothers birthday. Service was unprofessional and not knowledgeable and in fact pretty rude. Service took way to long with not even a half full restaurant. My friends steak came to him bleeding all over the plate when he asked for medium rare. My salad had an awful... More
