The best pub food you will find anywhere. Our server was friendly and made us feel like one of the locals. Great experience.

We had a nice lunch there and the service was good, but the place is really old, dated, and dirty....oh and it was also cold. I understand a new pub is being built next door so we will look forward to try that.

Food was fine but the service was iffy at best!! Server wouldn't come back to offer a second drink!! Finally just went in and got one at the bar!! Hopefully new reno improves the whole atmosphere of the pub!!

This place serves some of the best pizza I've ever had. They switch-up the menu regularly which is good for variety, and I'm always happy with my meals (I'm a regular). For the veggie-conscious, I'd recommend the Longhorn Salad and Veggie Burger which are among my favorites - and for the carnivores? Wings should be ordered, all the way!! Their... More

Yes the Bowen Island Pub is a bit dated but the staff and the locals are so very friendly and you can't beat the prices. The best part is you can park your car in the ferry line up and walk about half a block back to the pub and there is no need to worry as Iona, our lovely... More

We often go to the pub for a Friday night dinner. There are specials that vary throughout the year as well as standard pub fare.

This is where the locals eat and you can see why. At first it looks a little shady, but the people are so incredibly friendly and the food is delicious! There was some construction going on beside the hotel, because they are building a new one! Congratulations! The burgers are amazing and the best in town. I'd go back here... More

My wife and I came here as a last resort during dinner as one of the other places we were wanting to go to was fully booked. Originally we were going to do take out, but once we came in we decided to stick around and have dinner. We were seated and after a quick skimthrough of the menu we... More

The food can be pretty decent at the pub. There are different specials regularly plus the fish and chips, burgers etc. you would expect at a pub.

The pub's Chef is doing a great job of making satisfying real food for folks. It always has some locals enjoying each other and the food. Indoors or on the Patio, there is a chance to relax and celebrate being on Bowen. Great music on some nights and enthusiastic community feel. Take out or take home if you can't eat... More
