Take the time and drive down to #10 Harbour Quay, Port Alberni.......you will be rewarded with the best take out you have tasted ! Then slip over to a sheltered little room and enjoy! Our grand daughter sent us for a hot dog and now we are going to drive the 1 hour drive just to sample the brisket and pulled pork......this is a time I wish I lived in Port Alberni. Do not miss this opportunity for mouth watering food made with such care !

Best pulled pork sandwich ever! Pork comes off the smoker tender and juicy, with fat removed. Comes on sizeable bun with coleslaw (and side order of potato salad if desired). The price is unbelievable for the amount of food delivered.
Don't miss out on your opportunity to try this out!

I am generally a reluctant consumer of hotdogs, but the Homestead Cookhouse won me over with their smoked dogs. We had the BBQ Bacon / Smoked Nathans Dog on an oven toasted bun with all the fixings. It was outstanding. We also ordered a plate of the homemade potato salad and it was delicious. When we walked in, the proprietor Joan Thurston had a pan full of smoked chicken fresh out of the smoker and keeping warm on top of the oven - the place smelled like a Tennessee rib shack and the aroma made your mouth water.
This is truly a "mom & pop" business enterprise where the owners pride is evident. If you believe in patronizing a non-chain business that will keep your dollars in the local community, Homestead Cookhouse has some great chow on the Harbour Quay waterfront.
Joan even knew about the beautiful varieties of begonia and coleus that were growing in the planter boxes on the walkways around the plaza.

Guy Fieri would love this place! The food is all prepared and cooked on the tiny premises They smoke their own brisket. As another reviewer said the poutine, which we had never had before was delicious. We tried both the pulled pork and the brisket. The two ladies running it are friendly and obviously take great pride and joy in what they do. Whilst Port Alberni isn't yet high on the list of places to go this eatery should make it so. The view from the tables is lovely and the harbour quay area has been renovated and is great for a stroll on a sunny day.

We stumbled upon this spot near the harbor with outdoor courtyard tables, and enjoyed it very much. They smoke their own meats, and serve a healthier version of poutine which was delicious! They use fresh, natural ingredients and don't fry the potatoes for the poutine. Their poutine is even gluten free, and they know which other items on the menu are "legal" for those who need to eat gluten free. We enjoyed our meal so much, I asked the lady how they made their poutine, and she talked me through a cooking lesson, showing me the fresh ingredients they use. You can't beat that for friendly service!
