NYP Restaurant & Bar's culinary masterminds concoct cuisine ranging from hand-tossed pizzas slathered with homemade sauce to gourmet Angus burgers grilled to customer specifications. Working in tandem with bartenders, the chefs complement each tomato-topped pie or pasta dish with craft cocktails and 20 different signature martinis such as the Tsunami––a surge of coconut rum, vodka, peach schnapps, blue curacao, pineapple juice, and mist. They also serve local craft beers. For some mealtime entertainment, TVs located in the bar and in the restaurant show local sports teams such as the Seahawks and Sounders.
Since filling their first glass with suds more than 30 years ago, the Sandpiper Pub’s affable staff continues to foster a casual atmosphere where White Rock citizens and surrounding communities can congregate for relaxed merrymaking. Out of view of the bustling dining room, Sandpiper’s chefs artfully plate classic British pub fare such as steak-and-kidney pie with homemade gravy and fish 'n' chips assembled in the shape of John Cleese. While the sun makes its daily retreat over the horizon, its brilliant blush spills through the bar’s windows and bathes all in attendance in its golden glow. Amid views of the bay afforded by its location off Marine Drive, a heated, covered patio facilitates scenic alfresco feeds and photo-ops of undercover snowmen masquerading as humans. A weekly calendar of televised sports games and live entertainment—including karaoke on Friday and Saturday nights and weekend DJ-fueled dances—brings customers back to the pub to share in its food and communal vibe.

Wigley's regales crowds with an eclectic mix of gourmet dishes and contemporary bar fare served alongside an extensive selection of wines and cold beers. Diners can summon edible comfort with the ribs and chicken platter ($18.99), a slow-roasted duet of charbroiled chicken breast and baby-back ribs glowing with the bloom of youth and a barbecue or honey-garlic glaze. Guests with piquant palates can dive into a bowl of spicy Cajun jambalaya abounding with chorizo sausage and succulent prawns ($13.99). Afterward, a frosty pint of beer ($3.99–$6.50) can nurse fiery taste buds and read them a bedtime story. While an army of televisions broadcasts sports games or a live band serenades conga lines, patrons can sidle up to Wigley's bar and fuel up with bar-menu offerings such as calamari ($8.99) and spicy, cheese-covered ranchero chips ($11.99).
In the dining room, the rhythmic pounding of a bodhrán hand drum mingles with the joyful melodies of a tin flute, flooding every inch of the space with an ebullience punctuated by onlookers’ clapping hands and tapping feet. The diners have left the feasts spread across their tables mostly untouched, their attention glued to the band in the midst of their lively song. Such moments aren't a rarity at Donegal's Irish House, but are an almost nightly occurrence at the jovial eatery that brings locals together to make new friends and share in internationally inspired meals.
Champions of fostering an atmosphere of community and friendship, the affable staff goes out of its way to make guests feel welcome, thanks to attentive service and an ever-changing calendar of events that keep inviting guests back. On select evenings, patrons can convene at Donegal's to watch a Canucks game or to see local bands. As guests chat and mingle in the dining room, the kitchen buzzes with chefs concocting Irish standards such as shepherd's pie and international cuisine that includes perogies and sausage, jambalaya, and butter chicken. Donegal's signature dish remains the whopping blarney stone burger, a 7.5-pound charbroiled Canadian beef patty that gets its eater a commemorative T-shirt and a place on the wall of fame if it's eaten within two hours with no help. Unsuccessful competitors, meanwhile, find their snapshot displayed on the wall of shame, under the most personal entry from their dream journals.
