At noon this place was very dim inside, more dim than pubs usually are. However, I had one of the most delicious seafood chowders I've ever had on either coast of Canada. It was a bit pricey for a bowl of soup with one soup-saturated piece of bread, but there's no denying the delicious blend of seafood flavors. My husband... More

I really love the new pub rules that some establishments have embraced, allowing your kids to dine with you in a pub. It had been quite some time since we had been in Billy D's. The addition of the Red Seal chef has pushed their great pub food to the forefront. The calamari was excellent. Tender, not rubbery and lightly... More

Favourite pub in Courtenay, downtown location with good beer (Blue Buck on draft) and great food. Seafood chowder here is as good as you will find. Love the wraps and the burgers. Good service!

We had some time to kill before our flight was leaving out of Comox so we went to downtown Courtenay and walked around for awhile. Ended up stopping here for lunch thinking it would just be ok food. I ordered the warm beet with crispy chicken and it was delicious. It was literally so incredibly good. My partner ordered the... More

Went here last week with my wife for lunch during a shopping outing along 5th St. It was a spur of the moment thing as we walked by. The waitress was pleasant and the food ok. The price is in line with others in their category. There are other places also within walking distance that we will probably try next... More

My wife and I took her parents to Billy D's and we had a very good time. The service was pleasant, if a little slow. The food was excellent. I had a burger with back back and was surprised at how good it was. They also had a good selection of local brewery beers on tap, which was nice. The... More

Came here last November 2015. Wow what a surprise. Been here before a few years ago several times and it was quite standard at best. Buy now. Jeez what a difference. Food is absolutely amazing, especially for the prirce. What a bang for the buck in downtown Courtenay. Oh the service I'd like to comment matches the quality of food.

Thank Ken J
