Restaurant is conveniently located and food was very good, had fish and chips. Then the bill came and was charged over a dollar for extra tartar sauce. Unbelievable! Have not been back.

We were staying next door so it only seems appropriate to eat here. There were a lot of local activities this weekend so there was a one hour wait on our food. We either had to sit in our room or here so we chose the Black Rooster and a drink. Very nice atmosphere and staff. People were walking away... More

Couldn't really decide to eat. Was given mixed reviews about the pub by the locals. I had the layer dip and calamari. Nothing too exciting. An average pub. Bartender was friendly helpful. Women a little snooty. Meh average. I did like the cozy circular booth though!

To start off the servers are always welcoming. I love the Reuben. My wife misses the Beef Dip but loves the burgers.

The Black Rooster is one of our favourite places to stop in for a beer and a burger all year round. In the summer they offer a small patio for outdoor seating but they have lots of space in the bar and in the dining room. Friendly staff, lots of locals and good selection of tasty choices for a snack... More

We love this place, and even if it's a little out of our way we will still plan on having a meal there whenever we are in BC. First, if you like bloody cesars, you MUST try theirs. My favorite appetizer is the un-stuffed mushroom caps. As for entrees, I love the fish tacos, the French dip, and thier pizzas... More
