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 has been family-owned and operated since 1974 and in 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.

    Food was disappointing. We have been there many times before and question if we will be back. Service was good initially then fell off as we were finishing. Again not like what have experienced in the past

    Excellent food and service. My only suggestion for improvement would be to take the drink orders sooner. But it was a wonderful experience. Staff are friendly, and helpful. Food was,superb. We both had the rack of lamb. I highly recommend and will be back again.

    The amuse bouche was a nice surprise! Yummy! My friend had the 50th anniversary menu -very good! I had the beet salad & butternut squash ravioli - the beets could have been a bit softer & a bit more flavour but otherwise it was very good. The ravioli was a big portion so took some home & left room for the espresso crème brûlée which was very tasty & surprisingly light dessert. We also saw the chateaubriand being prepared table side for a neighbouring table - love the show & aromas! All in all good food, great service & I love he heritage home history. We noted the wine list does not offer many lower priced wines - a 200% mark up on wines from retail prices. The $50 BC wine was not available. They do offer a few wines by the glass & half bottle.

    This is a classic old restaurant that we had not been to for years. After a referral from a friend we decided to try the 50th anniversary 3 course special. The paella was like a deconstructed presentation and it was excellent. Hot, flavourful and absolutely delicious. Finishing off the meal with the apple tartlet was amazing. I was so full but very satisfied. Highly recommend you visit soon!
