This has been such a disappointment! The previous Packers restaurant was a favorite of local Semiahmoo year-round residents and marina residents in the area because it was a "pub" where one could relax with casual meals and drinks and just enjoy the view without the expensive hype. Now, after the renovations, the menu is far too "upscale" for every day customers who want simpler fare and pub food like the previous menu offered. Our favorites for years were a pound of chilled shrimp in the shell. Fantastic! Fish and chips so delicious our Canadian friends came to Packers specifically for the meal saying it was the best! There were salads like a wonderful pear salad which was to die for. Hamburgers were simple and delicious, mac and cheese and several pasta dishes which were great! BUT, all that has changed to expensive "gourmet" food which is out of the question for local customers who just want their old pub back and their retreat at Semiahmoo. Good luck with your out of town guests, but the local customer is out in the cold now! Too bad, especially in those long winter months when you have to depend on local people to support your restaurants. Sad day for Semiahmoo community and Blaine.
