Went there for lunch and had a good version of seafood chowder. Not the thick pasty stuff but good old fashioned chowder thickened with a little roux and the potatoes in the soup. My spouse had shrimp stir fry and we both had cold hard ciders. Nice lunch.

Stopped in for lunch and would say the food is average pub food. Good value for the money. There was some arguing among some staff that I didn't need to hear.

This is just a typical old pub.. Was really expecting more based on tripadvisors ratings. Dark, old, average pub grub, service was lacking. Looks like they have their local crowd and don't care to build on it.

It was our first visit to the restaurant. It was obviously the social centre of Parksville. They have live entertainment most nights. They have different food specials every day. They are very reasonably priced. The portions are generous. We had roast beef with a big Yorkshire pudding. They have an assortment of beers. The decor is nothing fancy but is just right for the neighbourhood. I would highly recommend this place if you want to kick back, have some beer and good food.

This is just a good place to go. There is nothing fancy about the place, but the food is always (remember bar food)good, and you'll not go away hungry. They have a friendly staff that seem to be always there to ask. The restaurant and the bar are separated, but are served by the same kitchen and the menu is the same in both places. We've gone here often and have never had a complaint. Oh wait, I have one. They took the buffalo burger off the menu. Good food, good people, hard to go wrong.
