The Satellite Bar & Grille at Arbutus Ridge Golf Club is located in the seaside community of Cobble Hill, amongst some of Vancouver Island’s finest wineries and the Cowichan Valley’s only Cidery. The restaurant is a 40-minute drive north from Victoria and south from Nanaimo. It is only 10 minutes south of the cultural city of Duncan. The terrifically scenic drive to Arbutus Ridge should prepare you for some of the views and pure natural charm awaiting you at the golf club.
The Satellite Bar & Grille boasts captivating views of the Satellite Channel from one of BC’s Most Scenic Patio. Guests will enjoy a variety of dishes using local food from the surrounding area, prepared by Executive Chef Brett Nuttall and his Team. The handsome glass-fronted clubhouse juts over a hill overlooking the 18th green and provides ocean, island and mountain views. We welcome your next visit to the Satellite Bar & Grille.

    I wouldn't recommend the nachos - they were poor. Though fellow diners had the hamburger and it was very good.

    We have been to this restaurant several times in the past three years, returning because the service has been very good, the menu selection quite extensive, the food preparation and presentation consistently excellent, and we always felt we were getting good value for fair prices. Our visit three days ago will likely be our last. The menu has been significantly reduced and even some items on the smaller menu were not available. It wasn't that they were sold out, but were explained as a mistake on the menu. Two of the food items we did choose were disappointing. The coq au vin consisted of three small drumsticks, some quite thick sauce and over cooked potato chunks - it wasn't the stew I expected. The Reuben was dried out, perhaps because it spent too much time on the grill, and the amount of smoked beef filling was "sparse". To accompany the smaller menu, prices have understandably increased. Our server was inexperienced, but then again, staff availability and competency seem to have become a common problem in the industry. It almost seems as if the Arbutus Ridge Golf Club wishes its facility to move away from providing a good restaurant experience (good food, good service, fair pricing in a spectacular location) to become a mediocre experience (still in a spectacular location). Perhaps I expect too much. After all, the eating area's name is Satellite Bar and Grille so I should realistically expect bar and grill(e) food, but the rub is that there are a number of pubs with spectacular views in the Cowichan Valley that have great food and service for reasonable prices. We'll now go there.

    We were very pleased with the meal and the service. We had not been to this restaurant for a year because of disappointment with the last experience so were very pleased to see the improvements. We will definitely go back.

    This review is for breakfast today, February 25, 2024. We all know that the cost of living has increased over the past years and we do understand that with increased costs as well as wages, the price on restaurant meals will have to increase. But....when you increase your price and then reduce what is on the plate that was there before... to find out now, that breakfast is served with only 1 piece of toast...and that extra piece will now cost. You really begin to feel that you are being nicked and dimed. There will be price point where consumers will reconsider their options for dining out. We have always enjoyed going to the Satellite Bar & Grill for dinner and for breakfast. However, we will now think twice about going there for breakfast again. There are other restaurant alternatives with better prices and food choices.

    What a pleasant, quiet atmosphere! It was too dark already to enjoy the view, but parking was easy, and we were welcomed immediately upon entering. The menu offered some variety and a good selection of wines. We had a sirloin beautifully served at a bargain ($22) and a local Pinot Grigio. Because it was Sunday night there was no selection of desserts, but the cheesecake was excellent.

    We arrived at the restaurant only to find that they had put a hold on all reservations including this app….. they are having staffing issues just like all the other restaurants and due to that it is day by day if the restaurant is open so luckily our one of our favorite waitress was there, but not sure I will trust the app to make further reservations

    My husband ordered Prime Rib medium rare and received well done. No one came anywhere near us to ask how our food was until we were nearly done! Apparently the server was busy with other tables, so the hostess advised us. A small credit was issued on the bill. Overall very disappointed with the experience. pam.bar@telus.net
