The food was very good, perhaps not the most fantastic ever, but definitely worth the money and the experience. Our server was a highlight of the night, bouncy and energetic - she may have been over-caffeinated, but it was all good. The only issue was we were there at closing and service disappeared at the very end, to some degree (we were the last ones in the restaurant).
The only issue was the heat, or lack of it. It was pretty cold. When they closed the doors to the enclosed balcony, the heat noticeably increased, to our pleasure. If we were in the restaurant proper, there may not have been an issue.

Great oceanfront restaurant. We had a beautiful view of Semiahmoo Bay. The server was excellent and I'm sure they're short staffed. The server was making the drinks as there was no bartender. My son was a bartender and said it was the best caesar he's ever had. The food was delicious and we didn't feel rushed.

The turkey dinner was pretty good and was better too once we got the cranberry sauce. Could have used a touch more gravy and for the price should have included dessert.

The server was the nicest person I’ve ever met in my whole life. She was so kind and she was really great at what she was doing! I can’t remember her name but she said she worked at earls before and that she had tattoos! I truly can’t thank her enough!! It just meant a lot because it was my girlfriend and my’s anniversary and we’ve had a lot of issues with servers because we’re gay. Thank you for the kindness and hospitality! It was October 9, 2021. Food was great too!! Will be back soon!

The view of the ocean across to Washington is beautiful. You can see the Semihammo Resort across the bay.
After dinner you can walk downstairs to the Cannabis store for some after-dinner gummies or chocolate.

The food and service was awesome. The crab bisque and beet salad were delish. Music was quite loud, to have a conversation

Parking was a big issue. Service was good and friendly until till they mixed up our dessert order. Had to wait 10 mins for new dessert and then got told we had 7 mins left to vacate our table. Attentive expo offering water every 15 mins. The place was busy (good for them) but felt kinda crowded with table layout.

Starter salad and entrees were cooked to perfection and packed with flavour. The setting is nice with dimmed lights and the ambiance perfect for a semi quiet evening. Next time though, I would pass on the coffee. Overall an amazing meal and will definitely book another evening at this restaurant.

Although the food & service was excellent, we were disappointed as it was our anniversary and it wasn’t acknowledged. I did make a point of ticking off the occasion when I made the reservation. In the past anywhere else, we have always received not only a verbal acknowledgment but also even a chocolate written message on our dessert.

Waited 15 minutes to receive water, did not have cutlery on our table, even after our food was delivered (had to waive a server down to get it), server didn't remember who had what, server brought one of us (table of 3) the wrong meal.

Went to celebrate my birthday, staff was super friendly. Food was absolutely delicious and plate presentation was like art work. Best thing I loved was I didn't feel rushed with eating, plenty of time to enjoy our appies before our meal showed up.

The WAG is fabulous! We went spur of the moment last night and the food was delicious (highly recommend the pecan-crusted steelhead), the drinks were delicious and both were priced quite reasonably (2 dinners, 2 drinks each for $80). And that view of the ocean! and the kite surfers!!

our lunch was great, the fish batter could have been just bit crispier, but other than that it was excellent. Would have liked table by window, but already taken. We were content to be near the fireplace. Service was excellent - our young waitress remembered us from last time and she has a lovely sense of humour, joked with us.
We go to WAG at least once a month with our friends from Maple Ridge and always enjoy it immensely.
