At The Rod & Gun, a generous menu of pub classics meets an amiable atmosphere, live music, and a garden courtyard. A list of burgers, pizzas, sandwiches, and wraps accompanies seafood pasta, fish and chips, and prime rib. Meanwhile, the restaurant's schedule of events features MMA fights, live bands and DJs, and sports.
For patrons bound for Steeples Bar and Grill, the experience begins before the restaurant comes into view. A scenic drive over the Malahat and through Goldstream Provincial Park offers a feast of vistas, and then the restaurant's steeple—an artifact of the restored church where it has taken up residence—peaks through the trees like a giant toddler playing hide-and-seek.
Beneath it, beams that were hand-hewn generations ago hint at present-day staff members' attention to detail. Amid casual, cozy surroundings including shuttered windows, guests dine on upscale dishes such as steak encrusted with black peppercorns, seared tuna, and creamy tarragon fettuccine replete with king prawns. The drink menu complements meals with daiquiris, martinis, and draft beers.
Today, the structure occupied by River Rock Bar + Grill invites hungry diners and Travelodge visitors to rest their weary bones while recharging with pub-style meals or intimate evenings around bottles of wine. But long ago in 1893, the building rose as a magnificent dwelling for Ashdown Green, a key player in the development of Cowichan Valley. Despite its transformation from home to hangout, the building, much like a water balloon filled with aged scotch, continues to burst with history and heritage.
Now, bartenders yank the levers on 10 draft beers and servers dish out pulled-pork sandwiches and wings. Seven high-definition TVs ensnare eyes with sports games, and a heated patio beckons guests outside even on colder days.
Whether you are looking for a place to watch the game on our HDTV’s, a place to hold a company gathering or birthday party we have a place for you to enjoy the best in uniqueness and casual dining.
Gather with friends to share a drink and a meal, or just kick back and feel at home – leave your troubles behind!
Steveston Seafood House's dedication to using the freshest fish and shellfish makes perfect sense?the restaurant is located in the heart of Canada's largest fishing port.? Those just-sourced ingredients go into nearly every dish on the menu. Thai-influenced bouillabaisse overflows with clams, scallops, and salmon, pounds of Alaskan king crab legs arrive simply steamed and sided with garlic butter, and the selection of just-shucked oysters changes daily. Even the wine list embraces the regional spirit by highlighting bottles from British Columbia.
The maritime atmosphere extends to the dining room's decor. Paintings of fish and seascapes filled with migrating iceberg herds hang above tables, and accent walls are patterned with a wavy texture reminiscent of flowing water. The elegant ambiance and fine cuisine have won over diners, who have honored Steveston Seafood House?with the title of Best Seafood Restaurant in the Richmond Review's readers' pools for 12 years in a row.
Tucked away beside the Fraser River in historic Steveston Village, Kove Kitchen serves casual food that's anything but basic. Burger patties are ground in-house from AAA beef before being charbroiled and served on German pretzel buns, and arrive topped with everything from applewood smoked cheddar to truffle aioli. Traditional bangers and mash receives a gourmet twist thanks to wild boar brats, and bolognese sauce is whipped up from spinach, chorizo, and beef before being added to tagliatelle pasta. Even appetizers sport decadent upgrades?take the butter chicken poutine, for instance, which tops fries with the restaurant's special recipe poultry. Guests can enjoy the second floor waterview and dockside patio, or enjoy a beverage from the extensive craft and belgian beer list in the four-screen sport lounge.
