...a place to go and eat and many times entertained by solo artists and often band or group of Irish inclined artists singing and playing to all our amusement.
The food is warm well done and cooked per chef and guests delight.
Wines and beeers and other beverages for all leaves nothing to chance. Jack Sixmith...the proprietor and his kind staff and service personnel makes a visit affordable and likely to be repeated...it is the ambience. You wont regret a visit. Bring your nearest and dearest and have fun in a warm setting of like-minded.
Frequented by both tourists and the 'natives' of White Rock!

We were able to walk in and get a table on the sidewalk. The service was just right, always there to take care of you and not hovering around. The food was great, fairly priced. We had the fish and chips. It came out perfect. The place is wonderful to people watch walking up and down the street on a warm summer night.

I'd eaten there before and had a good sandwich and excellent steamed mussels so figured the fish and chips would be wonderful especially as their sign was claiming they had the best in White Rock. My first impression of the plate of fish and chips when it showed up was 'good grief' it looks more like home made fish sticks on unappetizing and pale shoe string French fries. The fish was coated in panko bread crumbs, which made it looked like a course sawdust covering. It was hard and crunchy and flavourless on the outside and the coating did nothing to enhance the fish. The dish lacked flavour and there was absolutely no 'fish and chip' flavour. The fries were a poor quality and because there were thin they quickly lost any heat and became cold. Totally disappointing and very expensive. The fish was fresh but it was the worst possible way to cook it. Coleslaw was an additional $2.00 and I had hesitated ordering it and was glad that I didn't as I don't know what they would have done to that.
If the menu had indicated that the fish and chips were not cooked in a batter but breaded in a crust of panko crumbs I could have chosen not to order it. I was so disappointed.
Waitress was very slow, some people walked out after waiting too long.

The fish and chips at any of the other restaurants that I could see on their patios at least looked way more appetizing and looked like real fish and chips.

Slainte (pron. Slantcheh) is an Irish toast that roughly means “good health”. This new addition to White Rock’s Marine Drive was a nice surprise and, situated right at the top of the hill with a clear view of the water, a great place to enjoy a beautiful fall evening.
The food was delicious. Our salad was fresh and interesting. My wife loved her ‘West Coast Seafood Chowder’ and my ‘Bangers and Mash’ was a contemporary take on an old favourite that lost none of it’s soul-food appeal because of it’s locally produced sausage and rosemary-tinted gravy. The menu is generally contemporary, with a selection of Irish entrees. Next time I’ll try their Fish and Chips. Bragging about offering the ‘best fish and chips’ in the fish and chips capitol of the world shows a great deal of confidence.

Best I could tell, the excellent music was all conceived or recorded in Ireland and covered a broad range of artists - all of it interesting and pleasant to listen to. Picture books of Ireland were left on some of the tables for diners to browse through. Our waiter was charming, attentive and friendly. The restaurant is family-friendly and there’s a box of toys at the front door to keep younger families busy.
