The Resort's location on the edge of Cox Bay, offers breathtaking ocean views from the wild and beautiful west coast that is unique to Vancouver Island.

We had a great dinner here! Prewarning though, their portion sizes are HUGE! I got a caesar salad w/ pizza and my bf got a soup w/ pizza... need less to say we could only eat 2 pieces each by the time we got to the pizza; the soup / salad could have EASILY been a meal on their own but they were under the appy's so we had assumed they would have been smaller portions. Of course, we could have ate less of the soup / salad but it was too good to waste besides the left over pizza made a great beach lunch for the next day :)

Continental breakfast was really good as well, had all the main stuff (include a fruit salad and an amazing chocolate orange loaf)... they also had the option to order from the kitchen if you wanted something a bit more (like eggs benny) which was really nice to see.

We read reviews of many places and chose this one because of some comments. We got a great view, great waitress, and pretty great food. The only sort of bad thing was my son's steak but by no means was it horrible. Everything else was fabulous and so tasty. Watched 10 - 15 ft waves carry dozens of surfers in! Will definitely go back.

We did not stay at Long Beach Lodge but decided to eat here the evening before leaving Tofino because we wanted some crab before leaving. Felt extremely out of place here. Very comfortable and welcome every where else we went on our six day trip. We didn't think anything off about our waitress until a couple was seated next to us and received stellar service compared to us. I guess we weren't good enough for this place even though we spent good money here for a nice meal. Don't waste your time here unless you feel like being treated average.

View over the beach is unbeatable, try to get table so can see the sun set. Im a vegan and they were most helpful in catering for my diet, and my husband had some great fish. The setting of the restaurant of course makes it.

Very warm and inviting while being open to great views of the incoming surf. A comfortable place to have a meal or just watch the surfers.
