“Service wasn't good”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

I went for food and drinks with an old friend and the food we had was actually really really good, same went with our drinks! But the service we had was terrible and it wasn't even busy! Wasn't impressed with it but I'll definitely go back because the view is worth it and the food and drinks were great!

“Terrible Service!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

We ate here one night due to it's location on the water and the server was super annoyed she had to help us. Food service was slow and basic. Server had no knowledge of the specials or even what day it was! I won't be eating here again. Why bother, when there are far better places like Salty's!?

“This established FRAUDED my credit card for almost $400”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

I left my credit card there a few weeks ago and one of your staff FRAUDED my card for a $380 cash advance. The FRAUD dept and Penticton RCMP should be in touch in the next while. Thanks thieves!!! ;)

“Great place to meet friends”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This bar/restaurant is in the premiere Penticton location. Located within the Lakeside Resort/Casino right on the beach. There is a lovely outdoor patio, but it was pouring rain while we were there, so we were sitting inside with the view on one side and large screens and T.V.'s scattered around so the guys could watch the final game in the Stanley Cup.
The atmosphere was energetic and every table was full. Service was great and the menu choices were numerous. A fun night out with friends.

“You go for the view, nothing more”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

It's a place to gather and have a drink to look at the view or watch the game.
It's a fantastic patio in the summer. It gets very busy.
But this place is dirty. Their glass in witch they serve you beer are old, scratches and marked.
Regular turn over of the staff and the bar tenders seems to have a hard time smiling.
You have to ask to get your table washed when you get there.
Food...well, DO NOT have any expectation,it's one of the worst food place in town. There is non consistency in the quality , looks and taste in the food. It's also he same situation with the service, sometimes it's good.
