Had lunch with another couple. Was quite busy and noisy at lunch time, but the food was good. Server was very friendly. Interior rather rustic, but clean.

It had been years since stopping at Fanny Bay Inn for a bite to eat What a surprise. Nice and bright in side, clean through out. Service was great and the food was delicious. Will defiantly be going back, soon.

Traveling between Port Hardy and Victoria, unless you're in a bigger town, the places to eat are a bit few and far between. Fanny Bay Inn was a treasure to find. Chowder was excellent as was the Rueben.
