The food was amazing, was a quiet evening, just one other table. Food was excellent, I had the Crusted Rack of Lamb, they nailed it, best yet., Appetizers were tasty. We were there at night so view was not seen.

Worth the short drive from Powell River, the Laughing Oyster is on the way to Lund. Welcoming atmosphere and friendly, professional staff greet you. Varied menu and you can count on top-quality preparation and presentation. I've been delighted with all my choices!

This restaurant is really impressive - unpretentious but magnificent in every respect. I was there with a group of ten (from 6 to 76) and we all ordered different items from the menu at lunch. Everyone was very satisfied. The food was all fresh, local,...More

Yes, you should reserve for a group or they may not be able to accommodate you.. Go on line for the Laughing Oyster to ask for their prices. Buffets are good as well. Prices could be around $15 - $35 probably.
