Went in there on a visit through the drive through in December. I had to be somewhere and took off from the restaurant. Wen my wife opened the bag of food it was all cold. We didn't eat it, just threw it in the garbage later. I called the Parksville location when I finally had time to deal with it.... More

Well as McDonald's go it's still just a average fast food joint. They have renovated this McDonald's so it's nice and clean and quite pleasant to sit and eat.We liked the make your own burger idea, we ordered from the machine and the service was quick and the food was OK as burgers go.

Twice I have received old cold and I mean cold coffee. Returned and asked for a fresh one. I do not think it is polite to speak another language when at work, English please when in Canada.

Would not eat there if you paid me. Meat taste like glue, fries are old. Service sucks and they never get the order right

Very, very disappointed! This spot used to be one of the cleanest and cosiest McDonald outlets - now you utilize a computer to order and the remodelling has opened up the restaurant to a very impersonal atmosphere. Tables were dirty and garbage was not picked up. Seats were cheap and very uncomfortable.

Although similar in many ways to other McDonald's, the difference is that this one is very modern, large, super clean and feels more like a coffee house than a restaurant; during the day that is when the clientele is older and there aren't a lot of kids around. A nice comfortable place to have a coffee in the morning.

While Ronald McDonald goes on a well deserved holiday the Manager of this franchise has elected to perform what looks like major renovations. Stand by - they should be finished soon. In the meantime folks are using tghe two drive in lanes to get their mojo fix.

Stayed at a hotel nearby, this was about it for a quick breakfast. The inside was very bright and clean, seemed a place where some local elders met on regular basis. We ordered the Egg Mcmuffin, a fruit and fiber muffin, and two medium coffee. One coffee was only 30 cents because the fruit&Fiber muffin came with a small coffee.... More
