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.

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

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.

Great service, great food, up to date décor. Only drawback was parking. It's located right on the main street in Courtenay and we had to park a block or two away. Not a big deal, the exercise was good anyway's

It's a friendly downtown pub - the staff is great and the food is quite good for the price - its good old pub food not gourmet dining so don't expect filet mignon but expect a good steak sandwich and enormous plate of onion rings

After walking for awhile and visiting different boutiques in downtown Courtenay, one can have some pleasant refreshments and snacks/meals, while resting. The food is good as well as the service. It has an outdoor patio during the warm months.
