Hungry for ideas of where to eat? Here are just a few recommendations!
D&E Drive In
Step through the doors of the D&E Drive In and you’ll step back in time…to the 1950’s when rock ‘n roll ruled the day, and going to the hop was hip. You can’t miss the D&E at the corner of George (Hwy 97A) and Hubert – it’s the diner where Equine Rangers Mounted Patrol horses are often corralled out front. Order from the window or go inside for counter service; all your diner favourites are on the menu.
Try: The homemade pies – by the slice or order a whole pie to go, nothing beats old-fashioned baking.
Fisherman Direct Seafood
Buy ingredients to cook yourself or settle in to the roadhouse right next door for a feed of traditional fish ‘n chips… Located right on George Street in the heart of town, you can’t miss the little yellow restaurant with the great big sign declaring “BC’s Best Fish & Chips”
Try: The beer battered fish ‘n sweet potato chips – generous portions of both!
Kaze Japanese Restaurant
Tucked into the historic Coulter House on Belvedere Avenue is one of the most unexpected places you’ll ever find authentic Japanese fare…anywhere! Don’t let its off-the-beaten-path location keep you from coming, Kaze is legendary in these parts for serving the freshest and finest sushi around. It’s so good in fact, a loyal following cruises to town every summer on motorcycle, just to eat here!
Try: The Dynamite Roll (it’s just dyn-a-mite!) and the tempura combo keeps locals coming back again and again.
Mel’s Main Street Pizza & Pasta
It might not be on Main Street (it’s on Cliff Avenue!), but it is one of the BEST stops for handmade, locally sourced, melt in your mouth pizza and pasta. Tune in to their Facebook page for daily “dares” and local trivia – call in or show up with the right answer and you could be taking your dinner home free!
Try: The Chicken Caesar Wrap and see for yourself why eating this is like “man versus food!”
River Rock Bistro
One of our newest nosh spots on Cliff Avenue, it’s also another spot to ride your horse to breakfast or lunch! Open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., the River Rock is also a great venue for live music and open mic nights.
Try: The Eggs Benny – Enderby Eggs fresh from the farm are the secret to this classic dish.
