Beach Fires Pacific Grill
Saturday - Sunday 9:00am - 10:00pm
We dined to celebrate my aunt's birthday. We really enjoyed a window table overlooking the marina and the channel. The service was excellent. We both enjoyed our meals, the lamb and sesame encrusted tuna entrees. We only had an entrée because we are light eaters, but both meals were very tasty. We are likely to return and try something else.
Our Server was excellent and the owner checked on us a couple of times! Wonderful!
Two in our party had Thai Curry and both said that it was very bland! Food did not live up to our expectations
Great service and amazing food! Loved watching the planes!
What a wonderful way to spend our time “waiting” for BC ferry!!
Amazing view and cool ambience
Food is great with lots of good choices
Service was outstanding, out waitress went overboard to accommodate all our requests , had a great time
Friend recommended this restaurant. We made reservations for 7:30 pm. Table was ready when we arrived next to windows. Asked if we could sit upstairs but there was a function going on. Friend had recommended dining upstairs. One other larger table had patrons eating and it appeared like a function was going on upstairs. Ordered two apps for four of us. Very good. Panko crusted Brie and oyster dish. All very good. Two ordered salmon with veggies, one ordered chicken dish which server indicated would take a little long to prepare and one ordered steak. Everything except steak came out, then the steak. Salmon was good, other guest thought it was dry. Steak was not cooked properly, undercooked. Chicken was excellent. Sent steak back and others continued eating. We were finished before steak came back, so she ate her steak alone. She said it was ok but she did not like eating alone. Server said the steak was on the house. We also had three desserts, which were ok. Was disappointed with the meals and service, even though they also did not charge for the desserts.
Food and service was excellent and the ocean view is fantastic. Highly recommend eating there for any occasion.
Went for my birthday. Overall, it was good, although service was slower despite being quiet. Food and cocktails were good. Staff was friendly. We would go again.
It wasn't that busy, but the service was slow. I had to get up and get my own fill up of water.
The acoustics here are not the greatest. But the food is good and the presentation is above average.
Although my server didn't order my meal correctly, she did take responsibility for the mistake. The food was good, nonetheless. A small deduction on my cost would have been appreciated.
This is an average place that I would only go if I am taking the ferry. The server was attentive and nice, although inexperienced. The food was not bad but it was not good either. Nothing more to say.
They handled our large group very well. The owner came over and introduced himself to our group. I would choose this venue for a large group booking again :)
The acoustics need to be addressed. Really loud even without entertainment.
I was so disappointed in Beach Fires. My wife and I came for a special date night. There was hardly anyone in the restaurant but we were seated right next to a very loud group of people. For our drinks alone we waited 33 minutes. I saw them made sitting at the bar and it took me so long to get the attention of the waitress to go get them. When the drinks arrived all the ice in my caesar had melted. I was hoping the food would redeem the awful service but it was mediocre at best and half our order was completely forgotten. For the price of the food and the terrible quality of service it was not worth it. It’s too bad because the location is beautiful and I was so looking forward to finding a new favourite place in town. Sadly, Beach Fires will not be one of them.
Unfortunate that we learned entrees are not allowed to be ordered on patio, and reservations are not allowed to be made for the patio either. Food was good, portions were a bit smaller than expected. Overall i would go again, in hopes for a patio table with wine and appies
Went there for my birthday dinner, food was amazing, but service was less than mediocre. If you’re planning to sit on their patio, DON’T! They told us we could sit there but they barely serve out there. What’s the point in having a patio???
Other than that, service was pretty mediocre, we saw our server twice. But the food was amazing! Grilled scallops and prawns and sesame tuna were great.
This place needs a manager that actually cares, and doesn’t sit at the bar on his phone drinking :)
Small portions, Matta / herb in mojito was withered, all the dishes missed some taste, ordinary salt, we-we're disappointed, overpriced for this quality
Excellent restaurant! Right on the water. Great ambiance! Server (Rhiana) was exceptional! My wife was in a walker due to hip replacement and Rhiana pitched right in and helped....made us feel welcome. Food was great. Best baron of beef I've ever had! Well done staff, we'll be back!
My new favourite place for lunch meetings!
Food was great, awesome location and the staff was friendly
Went to celebrate an anniversary. The food was excellent and the service was good too. They gave us a complimentary piece of cheesecake on the house for our anniversary which was a nice surprise. Biggest complaint was cleanliness of restaurant...the menus were dirty, floor was dirty, and a couple of the dishes didn't come out clean.
Service was very poor. Limited selection wine menu . Weak cocktails (aperol spritz). And there was a fly , literally, in the one cocktail. Small portion of the scallop and prawn flame, this dish was over-priced.
One guest’s food was cold. And another dish was served with mushrooms when we specifically asked for mushrooms to be omitted.
Overall inferior service and food.
Pretentious and overpriced.
We enjoyed the food immensely. Would highly recommend. Only recommendation is to have music we can hear but not so loud we can't talk. We couldn't hear any music.
Mothers day late lunch, first time and was pleasantly surprised. It was really busy but service was friendly and helpful. It is in a wonderful location and the food was excellent we will definitely return!
We had a party of 10 plus a 2 year old for Brunch on Mothers Day. The food, service and benue were all superb!
Great atmosphere. Wonderful food. Will return in the near future.
My appetizer was very overpriced 3 tiny scallops with a tiny bit of greens for $14.00. We were trying to have a conversation with our guests but the table next to us was so
Noisy we couldn't hear ourselves talk. I approached
The wait staff who said they would talk to management and we never heard another word. The veggies were colourless and bland. It's a better lunch place than dinner place
We had a group of 12 and the service was top notch. The food was fantastic and the ambience was welcoming.
Highly recommend the Linguini Capesante! The calamari was very tender and beautifully presented. Would definitely go there again.
I have had both lunch and dinner and the food is very good. It's obvious that they are still building their business. At dinner, two items from the menu were not available. These happened to be the dishes that 4 of 5 at our table wanted to order. The wine list is hand written on a grubby piece of cardboard. There is reasonably priced good wine. The view is lovely and I am sure that with some work, this could be one of my favourite restaurants.
Friendly and attentive staff, reasonable prices, good food, great presentation, timely service. Will definitely go back again.
Chosen for a friend's birthday. We were all pleased with our entree and would like to return to try their Saturday/Sunday brunch menu.
Found the restaurant to be VERY cold and noisy. Maybe draping cloth on the ceiling would break down that noise a little bit? The food and the service was very good tho.
As we entered the restaurant we were greeted immediately and guided to our water side window table. Our hostess, servers and restaurant owner all took the time to check in on us throughout our visit. The environment within the restaurant involving staff, owner and visitors was energetic and positive. The food was beautifully plated and the flavors and textures vibrant and fresh. We will be back soon!
A bit loud for fine dinning.
Food was very good and service good, but very noisy even as just 2 at the table it was at times difficult to converse quietly. Perhaps plants or area rugs etc could reduce the noise echoing. Lovely setting.
A lovely brunch at Beach Fires. Great menu items, unique and tasty.
Had a problem using the open table when making a reservation. Also called to say we would be late, talked to a lady on the phone but she never changed it on the computer.
Food was very good and excellent flavour. We have dined here 3 times and have not been disappointed.
