Got a great appetizer and a couple of kids meals. Son loved the fish and chips. The staff understands quick turnaround required for ferry travel! Good atmosphere. Nice staff. Women’s washroom painfully small. Enjoyed it nonetheless.

We came to eat before boarding the ferry. The breakfast sandwich was amazing! We got tomato gin soup on the side. First time tried this and it's really good. Loved the interior and the view from the place . We'll be back, thank you!

Visited here for a late lunch while waiting for our ferry and we greatly enjoyed our meal. Most tables were filled but we were seated quickly and our server was very attentive. Fish and chips and seafood stew were quickly served and very delicious.

We dined here for lunch and ordered 4 different dishes between 5 of us. The salmon flatbread was delicious and the Cajun chicken burger was enjoyed by another one in our party. Great atmosphere and service.

For a neighbourhood pub restaurant, the Olive and Anchor is major league. From the moment you walk in, you feel as though you're the most important guest of the day. The service is exceptional... the menu, although small, has enough variety to satisfy any palate....More
