The service is great at this location, but the food was definitely not good. Will not go back! Their take on salade niçoise was a joke. Not a tasty one. The biscuits were decent.

Service was casual and nothing special. Water was not refilled when it was empty. The shrimp and grits I ordered had a huge piece of egg shell and shrimp shell in my dish. Personal preference, but I wasn’t a fan of the gigantic grits either.

Everything about our meal was great except the fact that there was a piece of hair stuck inside of the crab cakes. it looked like it must have fallen in while it was being made because it was meshed Into the crab not just on top of it. I didn’t want to be rude and make a big deal of it so I didn’t mention anything to the server , also my server was very nice and attentive so I felt bad for bringing it up. I just paid a smaller tip.

Excellent service and food. Very loud inside, felt like we had to yell at each other to converse at the table. Volume was due to other people’s conversations though so there didn’t seem like adequate sound absorbers were installed.

Blonde hostess with glasses needs to be fired. Condescending for no apparent reason, definitely won’t be returning just because of her attitude. Will be making this known to everybody I know.

Atmosphere was fine. The service was terrible. Took 15 minutes to get our drinks and we did, they were wrong. Bartender didn't know how to make a traditional Old Fashioned. The 2 appetizers we ordered, never came. We only got one carafe of water, after asking for another carafe - twice. Our meals were fine. They comped us $30.

Our Server was very funny, and made sure to get our appetizer order in so we caught happy hour! He offered us honest opinions on his favourites when we asked for advice. The Hostess was really quick to get us our table - although it was probably helpful that we had a reservation - and so had a lovely spot on the patio. The menu is smaller than I recall, but the food was excellent! Highly recommend them and will likely go back to try their Sunday Seafood Broil special!

We ate outside which was pleasant. Inside was extremely loud. Nicky, our server, was by himself and it was busy. We were in no hurry so that wasn’t a big deal. Their red wine list is not extensive (about6wines) , and they were out of one of them, so wine choices were limited. Oysters were good. Entrees were OK. Bill came to $215 Canadian for 2 drinks, bottle of very mediocre cabernet, 2 apps and 2 entrees and tip. Crab cakes were just fair. With so many choices, it’s unlikely we would go again. If we did, it would be during happy hour for oysters and drinks.

Vancouver restaurants for an alternative Thanksgiving meal

Vancouver restaurants for an alternative Thanksgiving meal

Happy Shucksgiving, oyster fans! Switch up your usual holiday celebrations this year with fresh shellfish from Chewies. Oysters are sourced locally in B.C. and from the East Coast, with the selection changing daily. The slippery suckers are served ice cold, accompanied by lemon, horseradish and homemade sauces. Alternatively, opt to have your oysters pan-fried or broiled in bourbon chilli butter. The diverse Southern-inspired menu also features fish and seafood dishes (bouillabaisse, chowder, gumbo, jambalaya) and red meat options like beef short ribs. You’ll find Chewies outposts in Coal Harbour and Kitsilano, both aptly located close to the water.

Outstanding oyster bars in Vancouver

Outstanding oyster bars in Vancouver

Steamed, Stewed or Nude is the motto at Chewies Steam and Oyster Bar. There are two locations to get your oyster fix on – one in Kitsilano and one in Coal Harbour – making it even more convenient to indulge. Their brunches are also superb; don’t miss the chicken and waffles and the Bloody Caesar (made with bacon-infused vodka) along with a plate of Kusshis or West Coast Beach oysters. They also barbeque and smoke their oysters and make a wicked Oyster po‘ boy or a classic oysters Rockefeller.
