Average Food, Terrible Service

The food is average at best (with the exception of the yam fries with chipolte mayo). They have 14 varieties of oysters which are good if they are your thing.

Vegetarians: Find marvelous meatless burgers in Victoria

On top of the delicious tofu dog and veggie nut burger, this restaurant has some of the freshest shellfish and seafood in Victoria, all locally-sourced and prepared by people who know seafood. They’ve even made an oyster burger with a Japanese breaded oyster patty and green onion and ginger mayo. But if you're still set on the vegetarian options, the tofu dog features a homemade relish and secret sauce, while the veggie burger is made fresh with sunflowers seeds and flaxseeds.
