“Nice little pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Nice little pub with a lively atmosphere. The windows offer a spectacular view of the harbour and marina, and you can also sit on the outdoor patio.

The halibut fish and chips (14$ for one piece / 20$ for two pieces) was light, crispy and very tasty. Others had the halibut sandwich (15$, served with fries or salad) and were very satisfied.
Local beers are offered on tap and service was quick & friendly.

A quick walk down the pier is an nice way to end your visit after your meal.

Overall it was good value for money in a very nice pub.

“Delicious seafood and great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

Second time to this pub just next to Oceanfront Suites of Cowichan Bay. Service great; servers friendly and helpful; food arrived cooked well and in a timely manner. Two of us loved our appys of oysters, mussels and calamari; one friend was not as impressed with his seafood chowder and small portion of grilled salmon on his salmon burger. My salmon was great.
Love the view of the water, harbour and marina. Will come back next time I stay next door!

“Great Halibut !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

This was our second trip to the Cow Bay marine Pub. Everyone had the Halibut, some in fish and chips and others in the halibut burger. All were above average. Really good local brews on tap as well. The black ale is amazing. Good, friendly, fast service as well. We will be back.
