Expectations are high. Pricing would indicate a better plate. By the time you spend $100,. for ordinary food and so-so wine, you'd be better off elsewhere. Little value here with nothing to excite.

Patricia, I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations. We are a locally owned restaurant and do our best to make sure that the food is as fresh as possible. We always do our best to provide good value to our customers by offering a wide range of selection with varying price options. We have been in business for 19 years now. Our prices have only slightly been adjusted over all those years via only 3 menu redos. Food costs on the other hand have almost doubled. I am not sure if you have experienced our live music nights, but that is sure to be a fun night for anyone that will add value with FREE entertainment. We also post deals on our Facebook page to help with the price of our plates if you are interested.
We would like to thank you for your review and look forward to the opportunity of a second chance.

“live here eat here”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

When my cousin comes to town to visit we go to The Old Boot Eatery, i am not sure why the other reviewers said they had to wait so long for their food, we have never had to wait that long for our dinners, The pasta is great, i wanted to have a strawberry margarita but they had just run out of strawberry, the waitress suggested this blackberry mixture they use for something else and the drink came but it was very sour, she took it back and sweetened it up so it was perfect.The staff are nice and very helpful, friendly, I would highly recommend this restaurant as a place to eat at when you are in sechelt.

“Dinner at the Old Boot Eatery”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

We gave up on the place after the last visit. We waited so long for the dinner meal that we paid for our beverage and left. Then walked a few steps to Sushi 5517 and had great evening meal.

Ryleytoryn - When The Old Boot Eatery gets busy, meals take time. We have a 5 burner stove and delicious fresh meals take time to prepare properly. Each of our meals are cooked to order. We ask that you please come back and enjoy a wonderful meal with us. Thank you!

“Good food”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

We ate here for lunch on our way through town. The food was good and the service by our waitress was great. Prices were good and we were overall happy with the meal. The reason for the average rating was the 50 minute wait for our sandwiches. When we ordered there was only two other couples in the restaurant and they already had there food. We did not see anyone for takeout, so we are not sure why it took so long for our lunch to be prepared. Other than that, it was good.

“Good pasta- where's the fish?”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

Great pasta, and accommodated allergies. Large portions. A little disappointed that the "seafood" offered included exclusively shellfish... no halibut/salmon? Surprising for this seaside community. But overall a nice meal and charming ambiance.
