Currently going through a renovation which is nice. Not obstructive and will be great when done. Kitchen always does a great job as we visit about once a month. Has a big screen if there is a sport event happening.

When you're in the mood for a pint and a snack the daily $5 burger special cannot be beat! Very good quality and great tasting! Oceanfront pub is a nice place to visit as well. Lot of free, covered parking and beautiful servers!

Great atmosphere. Always good food at reasonable price. Not fancy just good. There is an outside deck but not very big & not especially nice. Lovely views of Cowichan Bay & Marinas. Lunches are good too. Clam Chowder is exceptional. Unfortunately not good for families....More

This pub has its good points for sure. Folks wanting a first hand view of the ocean can either sit in or sit out. It overlooks the marina in itself is quite interesting and it is endowed with a very nice all year round view....More

Great local pub. Food was as one would expect but service was better than one expects. The pub is always clean and well staffed and as mentioned one of the best views around.
