Match Eatery & Public House - Courtenay
Booked a table for the Saturday brunch. Realistic choices numbering about a dozen. Service was friendly and attentive. Staff work together to ensure service. More than one staffer came by the table to see how we were doing. Coffee was good and bottomless for those who like a lot of coffee.
Prices are realistic and food was good value for the price. We know from previous experience that the kitchen will try to accommodate any menu "changes" you might request.
The patio is now open (we didn't use it) and it looks inviting. There is a surround glass wall to prevent wind gusts from upsetting the meal.
Reasonably good pub fare, I enjoyed my meal.
The part that makes me go wow! is the dessert though - the blueberry key-lime pie was the BEST thing I've ever eaten! Creamy, delicious, with big, beautiful, fresh blueberries. Do good.
We always enjoy the atmosphere, the service and the food at Match. If we had one complaint on this particular visit, it would be that since we were very interested in the hockey game, they raised the "big screen" during the middle of the second period to start the live music. (which maybe could have started between periods... or maybe a bit later?). The game was still showing on a few of the TV's but would have meant we had to move to a different table.
Small complaint but if I don't mention it, you won't know about it.
We will be back so its not the end of the world.
Overall we had a great time. Food was fantastic! I love their Caesar Salad dressing! I wish they would make the side Caesar salad a bit bigger. Service was great too. I love that they have Forest Fog beer on tap from our local Cumberland Brewery, it’s definitely a favourite. We went on a Monday and kids eat free! You can’t beat that. I will be recommending this place for sure!
Great burger and service. Went just before noon on a Friday so beat the crowd. We will return often
Always a good time
We went for the NFC and AFC Championship Football games. We asked for a table in our reservation that was close to the big screen. We got a great table for watching the game.
Brunch was very good. I had the bacon and eggs and my wife had the salmon eggs benedict. Both were excellent.
Our server was friendly, outgoing and very good at her job.
HAD NEVER HEARD OF NOR EVER EATEN IN THIS FRANCHISE MICRO BREWERY. AND NOW I UNDERSTAND THE NOISE. SUPER EVERYTHING!
I know its a Sports Bar however some nights there are 3 different games being televised and the volume for all 3 are cranked competing with each other. Ever think about offering headsets as the airlines do with a charge using Bluetooth technology so a guest can switch on whatever game they want and listen to it while the main speaker system is streaming some great music for diners to enjoy. I am a senior and trying to dine while 3 different games are blasting away does nothing for my enjoyment of the meal I'm being served. My wife and I enjoy frequent visits to your establishment and are impressed with the great food and great service by your staff. Wishing you all well with your endeavors and Thanks for allowing me to submit my suggestions. Cheers.
Good food...had 2 for 1 brunch coupon so was very inexpensive...fast service
USED THE PROMOTIONAL COUPON - TWO FOR ONE - FOR A SUNDAY BRUNCH. Greeted by friendly host and server. meal was delivered in good time and was cooked according to our preferences.
Good value for the money.
We have dined twice at Match and were pleased with the menu, service and room. there are many TV monitors and , depending upon the guests around it, a TV in close proximity will/can be tuned to a channel you have requested.
Nice place for casual dining.
Bring the kids till 10.
Great deals on food and drink specials
Food was good. Service was good. Would be nice to see a better menu selection.
Lots of menu choices but the actual quality seems just mediocre. Breakfast comes with a few tater tots rather than hash browns which was a bit weird. Service is hit or miss. Our server at this meal was outstanding.
Great breakfast. Highly recommend the salmon eggs Benedict. Absolutely delish.
