Best seafood chowder and poutine in town. Never had a bad meal there, great service. A little crowded but food is awesome.

Both of us had the Clam Chowder and then shared the Fish & Chips (way too much food for two oldies)!!

Clam Chowder was delicious and the F/Chips were too but I felt so full from the soup it was hard to enjoy the rest!

Server was cool ... very laid back and made it a comfortable place to hang out! The mussels (curried) at the next table looked divine!

We recently stopped in for dinner, our first visit to this newish restaurant in Powell River. We were favourably impressed. We each had the special which was Bacon & Corn Chowder and a Garden Salad with garlic bread and then shared BBQed chicken wings. The portions were generous and the food hot, tasty and freshly prepared. The restaurant is licensed so we enjoyed the beer special with our meal. Service was prompt and polite. The atmosphere was welcoming, relaxed and casual with a Westcoast flavour - lovely wood plank tables. My husband loved the blues selections playing in the background (Soloman Burke) and the old movies playing on a screen on the wall is an interesting touch. There's a piano in the dining area and I gather the owner sometimes plays (though not the evening we were there). Welcome to PR 'The Modern Peasant', hope you do well!
My recommendation: The Bacon & Corn Chowder

I had the fish and chips, she had the special which was steak. My fish was lightly battered and the portions were plentiful. The frites were excellent. The slaw was coarser than I'm used to and the dressing was a bit different, but it was good in its own way. The steak was properly cooked.
