Had lunch here on a Monday afternoon. We ordered and shared the Cod Tacos and the Calamari. Both were delicious. View from front of restaurant was great. Would absolutely return if back in the horseshoe Bay Area.

My parents took me and my sister here back in the 80s on vacation, as I later went with my wife, to eat while waiting for the ferry to vacation on BC's Sunshine Coast! The food is great, a nautical flair, before heading out on the sea. An oyster burger really hits the spot.

This restaurant has so many delicious items on the menu! We have never been disappointed. Then we love to visit the First Nations art store next door...a great family outing! :-D

It's close proximity to the Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal makes this an ideal place for a quick meal before travel. Good, wholesome food and quick service make this restaurant a winner

Really charming and unbelievably consistent. We eat here all the time. The food is creative and tasty always. Particularly nice oysters. Even the kids food is very good and the staff are brilliant.

Nancy and I were first in line for the 5 pm ferry so we decided to go into Horseshoe Bay for an early dinner. Service was very prompt and we decided to have burgers, mine Cajun chicken and Nancy's a very nice blue cheese hamburger. Nancy enjoyed their red wine special. Spacious and comfortable across from the Waterfront.

Thanks to a 'power issue' at a local competitor we had the pleasure of finding the Olive & Anchor. Obviously this is a place that is well known by locals...and I hate to spread the word but this is a place worth trying. The staff are friendly, efficient and work as a team providing the best restaurant service I can... More

Excellent option for a meal in Horseshoe Bay. Room has lots of character, service was fast and cheery. Always love a Blue Buck on tap, and the Chicken Tikka Masala was generously-sized and tasty.

Discovered this spot while in line for the ferry at lunch time, on a warm sunny day. Have been back for the same reason, and each time order the tempura oyster burger and fries, which are excellent! The open air feeling and quick service add to the experience!
