This place is great! The guy that was working while we were there was extremely nice and made it a very comfortable place to be. They have a beautiful outdoor seating area that looks onto the water, and you can watch the B.C. ferries go...More

Nice patio on the water to have drinks. Service is poor and we didn't wait to order so unsure what the food is like.

Hate to admit, but went to the Reef and Breakers back in the 80's and 90's. It is definitely dated but how can you not enjoy sitting by the beach having drinks and appies. Now the ambiance is there, unfortunately the service is very slow....More

Its still a Tavern, but they have had a license change so you can bring your kids and sit outside or in. They are right on the water with a large cement deck with smoking and non smoking areas. They have a new cook and...More
