We were told there?d be a 35 min wait for a table at the pub next door and lucky for us we kept walking and found the RumRunner. We hadn?t been asked for proof of vaccination for a while. Although everyone?s done with Covid, Covid is still not done with us so we felt this was a safe place to enjoy a beer and calamari before heading for the ferry. Service was friendly and our food arrived in good time to make our sailing. Great view of the marina and beyond from the glassed in dining area.

Thank you Bill, Jane and Team for your consistent great food and service! Our table for 10 was well attended to at the recent Boat Show and our crew was very well fed. Last night we dined with a client who was delighted with the Montreal smoked brisket, which Robb recommended, while I devoured the fresh wild salmon burger! Compliments to the Chef/s. Wishing you a wonderful summer. See you again soon ! Janey & Robb

After a day at the boat show we needed dinner and we realized we hadn?t been here in years! My hubby had the Thai curry which he said was very good. The seasonings were perfect and portion was great too. I had the fish and chips and was super impressed. The batter was light and crispy and the fish cooked and moist. Our server was very good and we appreciated being in a venue where vaccine passports are still being checked. We?ve moved our boat out to Sidney and so we?re looking forward to coming back again!

Popped in to this pub on a whim while visiting Sidney, and we were not disappointed. Great service from both the owner and server. Very friendly and we were pleased to see that they are still asking for proof of vaccination. I realize many people are ?so over this? but for some of us, it still provides a sense of comfort. The food was great, awesome crab and prawn cakes. My husband had the Montreal smoked meat sandwich and onion soup and he thoroughly enjoyed both. All of this was topped off with a lovely blueberry tea to sip while enjoying the fantastic view. Great place!!

The parking is free and available, Went there for a friend?s birthday, the attendance is okay for how busy they are but I never gotten my iced tea and I was charged for it, however I never mentioned it cause I understood it was because how busy they were The food however for the quality is extremely overpriced The view is nice only if you get to sit by the window for 5 people we have paid 300$

Unfortunately, nothing good to say here. We visited for dinner a few days ago. Was dark out so we missed what we think would be the only positive the view. After a full day of walking around and with hungry bellies we were excited to visit as we had heard great things. We were seated and offered menus with no explanation of specials. There were three other tables so it wasn't busy. We ordered the crab and artichoke dip to start. Im known for scalding my mouth on this stuff. Had no worries as it only came out warm. We didn't want to send it back as we were starving. Turns out the people next to us had to send theirs back as it was cold. We both ordered the Striploin Steak Oscar their dinner special menu. My steak was just over 1/2"thick. It was seared nice on 1 side. Unfortunately, it was left cooking on that side to long so my thin steak was overcooked nearly all the way through. The other side didn't spend enough time on the grill to even brown leaving a thin strip medium rare. The topping of crab and bernaise was no where near being tasty. The crab was stringy and cold seemed previously frozen or out of a can. The bernaise was bland. It came with roast potatoes that had zero seasoning, they were dry and flavorless. IMO the only decent thing we're the vegatables that came with it. My partners meal was equally disappointing. As far as the service we had to ask for condiments, she never checked in on us, never offered a refill on drinks. The debit machine lowest tip offering is 20%. This is absurd. The machine was glitchy and ever time I tried to change the percentage to a lower one it went straight to the payment menu. Ended up tipping 20% even though the entire place didn't deserve 5%. An overall dissapointing experience and with so many other options in the area we will not be back.

Had reservations that weren't honored at Surley Mermaid so we decidedly to eat here. This turned out to be a great stroke of luck for my wife and I. The food is way better here.The whole experience is a step up. For starters the view is amazing. The staff is courteous and knowledgeable. The cocktails and main and desert are top notch. Been all around this blue marble and would definitely put this place in my top ten. The steak in my fajitas mouthwatering. We will be back for sure. If in Sydney you must try here first. Had second meal here today and still very impressed with all aspects of a great restaurant.
