Bowen Island Pub is just up the road from the marina. Where the locals go.
Good solid honest food, happy staff and decent prices.
The fish and chips were great, excellent fresh fish and crisp batter.
But my favourite is the burger - tender and juicy.
Everytime I'm there - admittedly usually saturdays after a hike - the place is packed, often a live band and a great atmosphere.
From my experience there are 2 pubs on Bowen Island. Doc Morgan's and The Pub. Doc's is right by the water, has a great big patio, gets most of the tourists, and is generally over priced and not great.
The Bowen Island pub is just up the hill, about an 5 minute walk from the Marina. Smallish outdoor patio (about 7 tables) and a real local feel inside. This is the place that the locals eat and drink at. It is your true home town/small town pub and many people in the place are regulars.
They have about 6 beers on tap.
I had the fish and chips, which was fine, but not great. I like a thick beer batter on my fish, where this was quite a light batter. The chips though, were very very good.
My wife's burger was excellent (mushrooms and brie), tasted flame grilled. Good size.
Food came out fast and fresh.
If you are looking for fine dinning, or a trendy place to be, this is not for you. If you want good food, at good prices, and a bit of local flavour, you should enjoy. It is worth the walk up the hill.
