The Beach Hut is blessed by being located one of the nicest beaches on the east coast of Vancouver Island. The view from their location is simply amazing. The restaurant consists of some simple tables inside, accompanied by a large deck with outside seating. I am not sure if table side service is an option. The primary menu consists of... More

Really casual, very good fresh food, right on the beach sitting under Polynesian style umbrellas. Self-serve. Very inexpensive. Recommend the halibut burger.

My title says it all. The view from their patio is amazing. The fish and chips are really mediocre and are priced as high as the high quality fish and chips at the French Creek Marina Pub which, in our opinion is the best place for fish and chips

This restaurant is truly superb, High class all the way including an award winning German chef. I had the fettucini which was delicious, my Dad had the steak and kidney pie. Everything prepared in a mouthwatering feast and a beautiful view of the ocean to go with it. A favourite evening haunt.

Decent food, fast, not too busy but popular, by the road & next to the beach. The selection has ice cream & short eats like chilli. It's okay.

This is your typical on the beach hut which offers burgers, several flavours of ice cream. It is a fun place on the beach and has the unique advantage of having no other competition. To my way of thinking, this is never a good thing and very typical in Qualicum Beach. A lovely community with a very narrow visioned mayor... More

Come here for first rate fish & chips, burgers and hot dogs. Good value with an 'eat in' patio with a fabulous views at the water's edge. Very popular and deservedly so. Very extensive opening hours. Nice ice cream (41 flavours!), shakes and drinks. All you could need apart from fine dining!

Made a quick stop for some ice cream and fish n chips. The fish n chips were good and the ice cream very refreshing. Best of all was the view! We were so tired after touring around that we could have sat there all evening just eating, and taking in the scenery! Recommend for a good snack and an awesome... More

Friends had warned us. They were right. In a single word: Ghastly. This place sits right on the beach. Great location! The outdoor frond umbrellas are a fun touch. The food ... I've repressed it. We left without finishing. Never, ever, EVER again!

We had light breakfast and lunches here and great ice cream cones too! The Beach Hut has the best location on Qualicum Beach for access to great swimming, kayak rental or paddleboarding. This is also a wonderful place to come in the summer and view the sunset over the distant islands and the colors changing from blue to pink and... More
