The other night I sashayed down to the FRENCH CREEK MARINE PUB for dinner. Didn’t feel like cooking at home plus I had a craving for Fish & Chips. I ordered the two piece Cod and it was not bad. Not as crispy as I like it. Chips were ok but too plentiful. Alas, Cole slaw is not included. One must order separately. However the Tartar Sauce was excellent.
For me, the Fish & Chips at the Lantzville Pub are better, as they are at the Black Goose, the Blakfin Pub in Comox, and, Good Grief, even the White Spot.
For some reason I just can’t warm up to the FRENCH CREEK Pub. It has no atmosphere. Or at least it has atmosphere that doesn’t do anything for me. It needs a Robert Irvine ‘Restaurant Impossible’ makeover. Too bad, because it’s so handy to where we live. On the plus side, the staff are very pleasant and efficient. I might try it again. A second chance.
Meanwhile, the Lantzville Pub had a special Super Bowl Menu. I watched the first quarter there and enjoyed a really good bowl of chilli. Then I tried the STADIUM DOG! Not a foot long but pretty big, with caramiized onion, bacon, cheddar cheese and sauerkraut! Too much for me but delicious. Too bad the weather and roads were so bad on Sunday the pub was only about 1/3 full for the big game. Here is the Stadium Dog.
