Ship and Shore Restaurant – Pub Style Comfort Food

Ship and Shore Owners

This establishment is ideally located on Vancouver Island between the cities of; Qualicum Beach and Courtenay, off the Old Island Highway.

They’re located almost in the middle of the two cities on the shores of {Deep Bay}, about a 30 to 35 minutes drive from either direction.

The business has been around since the 1970’s, but present owner; Melanie and Bruce, have completely renovated the premise since taking over a few years back. They have given it a relaxed and welcome home feeling, the moment you walk through the doors!

“The Ship & Shore offers our recently renovated restaurant/lounge with comfort food and ice cold beverages from a local island own brewery.”

The two have done a wonderful job of renovating the restaurant upon taking over a few seasons ago, offering a comfy, cozy atmosphere for all. It’s a comfortable sit down pub style restaurant, with television’s all around highlighting your favorite sports event.

It’s also family friendly atmosphere arranged in a proper way for everyone to enjoy.

Signature Fish and Chips

Ship and Shore Restaurant Fish and Chips

Melanie and Bruce have chosen to keep the original restaurant recipe for their fish and chips dinners, and for very good reason. My wife selected the 2 piece cod dinner and the serving was absolutely huge!

The cod was fresh and the deep fried batter was light, very tasty and not greasy at all.

A great selection and perfect with a cold brew!
