How would you like your potatoes. Of a group of four only the person who didn't order an entree was ok with their food. Nuked mashed potatoes, overcooked hunks (not a typo) of carrots and cold peas...suit your tastebuds? Me neither. You're crossed of the short list of restaurants I will go to in this town

We have eaten here in the past but seems to be steadily declining in quality and service. I have heard from others that it was just a bad day. Well that was two in a row months apart. Kind of a shame since this restaurant has been around forever.

My husband and I went for the smorgasbord on Sunday, so we did not eat off the menu. The choices were good, the food was like homemade dinner, I had mashed potatoes and roast beef very tender with peas and gravy, there were two salad choices I had ceasar it was good. The penne in cheese sauce was also very... More

I ordered the veal cordon bleu which was adequately prepared although I chose the rice option which tasted parboiled like Uncle Ben's rice. I should have ordered the one of the huge spectacular salads that two of my friends ordered. It was close to closing when we finish so the waitress brought us 4 individual desserts on the house. They... More

We were in town for a Provincial softball tournament and decided to go to Solda's for dinner on Saturday night. I had been there back in 2011 with my children and the food was great!! As a team from out of town we had a very large group and they were able to accommodate all of us along with other... More

I have eaten here many times and the food is generally pretty good. Pizza and fish and chips are a couple of my favourites. They have a Sunday smorgasbord that is pretty mediocre though it seems to be popular. This place has many regular customers who enjoy the staff and running into friends.

On our way to the Pacific Rim, we gassed up in Port Alberni, and chose Solda's because it was across the street within easy access: what a serendipitous find!!! We received prompt friendly service, excellent food in large portions, and a really good break from our road trip. Can't wait to stop in on the next trip out - the... More

I find this restaurant very poorly lit, rather dismal. The food is really not the greatest, rather bland. The service is alright, one waitress we have had seems to be totally disinterested in what is going on. I don't think she is there anymore. This is not a place that would be top on my list to visit anymore.

I have eaten at this restaurant for a long time, I think for about as long as they have been in the valley. This restaurant is a great place to eat and to socialize. The menus of their american recipes and their Italian dishes are delicious. The family that have run this restaurant since 1969 are a great family. This... More
