The food was amazing. I enjoyed the baked macaroni and cheese and found it absolutely awesome.It took a while to order since they only had 1 waiter but it was definitely worth the wait and the waiter seemed very nice. I will go back next time I am on the island and I recommend you go there too
Went for lunch last week for fish and chips. Waited forever to get lunch and then the worst fries ever. The fries were leftover from at least the previous day and not even warmed throughout. When I complained to server she said she couldn?t do anything about it. When I didn?t leave a tip she accosted us. I suppose when you are the only restaurant on an island you can serve terrible food and get away with it. Save your money and go elsewhere. Worst lunch ever.
We ate at the restaurant and the location and view were fabulous! We enjoyed the birds flying around and we?re having a good time. The outside impression was very sad as the lovely gardens had been let go for a good while and the weeds were overtaking the gardens. Our waitress was friendly and checked for us that the seafood was all brought in frozen at the moment. My husband ordered the fish and chips anyway. After quite a long wait lunch arrived. Have you ever had fish and chips leftover and tried them the next day and not eaten them because they were no where near as good as fresh? That?s what we felt the chips were like. Warmed up leftovers and not heated through. Very disappointing. How awkward when the kind waitress asked if everything was ok and we were speechless for a moment. After explaining our problem the waitress was not able to address our concerns. I bet it can be great there, but we would not recommend it at present. It was awkward also as we did not tip as we always do, and the waitress came running out to say if we did not tip she had to come up with five percent of our bill so she was losing money... All in all an unpleasant and expensive, distressing experience.
Stopped of a snack and beverage. Carl was on it's best pour I've had in "cant remember the last time". Had the wings' on special. Cajun over Jerk this time. Will definitely go again.
Terrible service at the pub. Upon entering the pub on a quiet Sunday afternoon our server did not greet us for a good 15 minutes. Two other sets of customers were not as patient and left after never even being acknowledged by staff. Our server never returned to the table once the food had been delivered, leaving me to eat with nothing to drink. All the tables were filthy and the place smelled of stale beer. The food was decent, but I won't be back for more.
Great service at lunch from Ellen and excellent food as well. Great views and clean inside. Not great looking from the outside, but will not disappoint. Did not stay here, only stopped for lunch. Check it out!
Went to pub..no food because of no staff in kitchen. One gal working..can guarantee she wouldn't be working for me!! Owner needs to hire some motivated staff. Not impressed.
The atmosphere is nice and some of the food is good (e.g , fish and chips); however, their tacos are possibly the worst tacos I have ever had. Soggy and hard at the same time, with a small amount of chewy meat inside and not much else.
One of the best reason to visit Gabriola is to experience Surf Pub. We offer a great time for people everywhere and our tasty seafood is the reason people keep coming back for more. If you'd like to ask us some questions or make a reservation call us at (250) 247-9231.
