I have reviewed this gem before but today they just put the finishing touches on a great day. The food and service was superb. If you like spicy, the noodle bowl had me sweating in minutes - delicious.

It's my neighbourhood go to place for lunch, dinner specials or just drinks with friends after a game of golf. Friendly service. Tasty food. Relaxed atmosphere. Great outdoor deck with view over the 9th and 1rst fairway.

This is a typical clubhouse setting but they are well known for their seafood chowder. Please add to that their clubhouse sandwiches. Excellent.

This is one of my favourite courses on Vancouver Island. Lots of challenges and they keep it in great shape. The members who live here are a bit cliquish but I guess that's to be expected when a course is surrounded by $1mil plus homes....More

Description
The casual atmosphere welcomes everyone, whether you are looking for a custom-made espresso drink and hearty breakfast to start your day, planning a lunch out with the girls, or want to catch the golf highlights over a beer and appies. During the summer months, the spacious patio offers spectacular views of the ninth green, and is the ideal place to hang out with friends and neighbours. We are proud to serve a variety of fresh appetizers, salads, burgers, and daily features, as well as a full wine list and drink menu.
