Old Surrey Restaurant

The Old Surrey Restaurant is Surrey’s best well- kept secret. Built in 1918, it was the residence of Lou Jack and his household until it was converted into a restaurant in 1974.

The interior has a crisp, clean aesthetic that is enhanced by hardwood floors and the enlarged photos of historic Surrey that adorn the walls. There are five distinct dining areas on the top floor (including a cozy library) and a banquet facility downstairs. The cuisine is French with a splash of West Coast flare. A treat for new and seasoned guests alike are the signature dishes that are prepared and flambeed tableside.

The restaurant is family owned and operated since 1975. Since 1984 the restaurant has entered into a partnership with the family farm in Ryder Lake overlooking Chilliwack from the nearby mountains. The Old Surrey is well known for its free-range lamb and veal allowing customers to enjoy fresh organic ingredients.

    Very attentive service and quiet, intimate dining experience. We enjoyed the table service where some portions of our meal was done right at the table. As we were celebrating a birthday, it was a nice touch to be comped with a drink. The food and presentation was top notch and we will definitely be back!

    We spent my birthday there, and was greeted very nicely. The waiters used to be professional waiters not trying to be friends. Food was still good but has gone down hill a tiny bit. Didn’t get a birthday dessert.

    This is our go-to for any special celebration and sometimes just because we want to spoil ourselves. Located in a hidden-away spot that people could drive by for years and not notice, The Old Surrey is a gem. Linen table cloths, fresh flowers and unbelievably tasty food and exceptional service have set this place apart for decades. We love that they use local produce, poultry and meats and their Caesar salad prepared at the table is to die for. Make a reservation, go there and experience it for yourself.

    Great experience. Looking at the outside, I would have not selected that restaurant but once inside, it reminded me of old large homes. The food was great, just the right amount and the service was good. Father's Day special set menu was good as it did have some vegetarian selections and that made it worthwhile.

    The entrees were cooked to perfection. I had the halibut and it was so moist. All the sauces that came with the dishes were so flavourful. I also had the onion soup but it was a tad sweet for me
