Holy smokes, those were the first words out of my mouth when i saw the beer selection this restaurant had. Came out to Lander with my wife for a drive and decided to go Sharkeys, mind you we had a coupon. We went for lunch, service was prompt ,aumbiance was cool reminded me of being back home in Nova Scotia (Just couldnt put my finger on it) My wife and I order the Fish n Chips I had the Phillips Blue Buck Pale Ale and my wife had a ceaser. Everything was great . I was just surprised to see a restaruant like this with a Microbrew selection. Not to say much more, if your in Ladner and craving a unique beer u got to check out Sharkeys.
Alway greeted by friendly staff, the service is great and such friendly people. The Manager is alwasy running around making sure everyone is happy and taken care of, makes you feel special.
The food is fantastic and if there is ever a problem you just have to say something and it is immediately fixed. The customers really come first in this place. I can't say enough good things.
Thank you for your great customer service!!!!

We had 2 big tables with a total of 20 ppl. Lots of drinks. Good Times. Service was great!
I have lunch twice a week at Twin Bridges, and sometimes our company orders catering from them for meetings
The menu is updated every week , and the variety is huge.This is the place to get high quality food on a reasonable price. This week I had the CURRY Puffs. I must say that this is one of the most delicious things I have ever tried. I love the lamb & rice and the veggie wraps.
Definitely recommend it for lunch, take away or catering. We sometimes call them and order the food in advance , so when we get there we don't have to wait.
Great Food, Great Staff and the Owner.
It is a good place to eat, and to meet local Ladner people, or come with friends and family,
Using it for regular business gatherings.
We wish that they open for breakfast.
The Owners know most people in Ladner, and most of them know the Owners.
Interesting menu, for both dinner and take out.
Pizzas are the top on the list.
Good selection of wines.
A well run business, and good to know it if you like to have a business in Ladner and Tsawwassen.
See you there - Ladner & Tsawwassen Meetup Group.
It's really hard to find good quality Japanese restaurants in the lower mainland. My experience at Akari Japanese restaurant was outstanding. I've been to Akari several times with my family and friends this year. I am very picky with Japanese food and the quality really really matters to me. I love all kinds of Japanese food but fresh sashimi is my favourite at all times. Akari had very fresh, chewy, and yummy sashimi. We ordered sashimi salad and grilled black cod with vegetables for appetizers, and some of the special rolls. The food was fresh, very tasty and the decoration was beautiful! Some of the special rolls can be a bit pricy but they are so worth it. I really enjoyed their rolls. They offer many different kinds of rolls and all are very very unique. You can choose either white rice or black rice. I personally really liked the ones with black rice. They looked yummy, tasted incredible, fresh, satisfying and very filling. The service was great too! Thinking of Akari's food makes me want to eat there again right now lol. I highly recommend Akari Japanese restaurant to anyone who love Japanese cousin! :)
Stopped here for lunch: this is a very old school seafood waterfront restaurant that seems to be a through back to an earlier time. Had the cod fins and chips; interesting that they use a breaded batter, that makes the fish crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Overall a very good meal.
We were there for lunch and ordered beef brisket rice noodle soup and a few dim sum dishes. It is the
worst that I have ever tasted. Food is to be enjoyed. I found it a torture to eat it, never mind paying $25
for it. You will never get me to go back.
My wife and I have just moved to the area and were looking for a Greek restaurant. After driving by the restaurant we decided to finally try it out last night. It was probably the best Greek food that we have ever eaten. The food was outstanding and the service was exceptional! We had the kalamari and saganaki as appetizers. The kalamari arrived sizzling hot and crispy and the saganaki was to die for. I ordered the roast lamb which was so tender that it fell off the bone and my wife ordered the chicken souvlaki special. The chicken souvlaki special was only $12.95. Both meals came with rice, potato, salad, tzatziki. The portions were huge!! We both had leftovers! Good food and good service! We will be back!
Normally I'm not inclined to go to such lengths to vent about my experience however I frequently dine out as I travel for work and I must say, the Landing Pub should be avoided at all costs. I was greeted as I sat down for lunch and was looking over the menu and was offered a beverage promptly. The waitress said she'd be right back as her owner was in the restaurant and she had to get his lunch. I then witnessed "the owner" who looked to be a bit on the heavier side sit down at a table, sloppily power through his lunch, ask the waitress for numerous refills, then get up and leave his mess at the table and exit the building without leaving her a tip for her efforts. In my experience I've never seen an owner treat an employee with such disrespect and demand so much of her time. From there the food was decent although the menu selection catered to those people who enjoy a non-healthy lifestyle, deep fried and greasy items, not a lot of selection. The waitress and service was well above average and I commend her for having to deal with the owner who seemed quite disrespectful (can he not pick up and clear his own plate and leave a few bucks as I assume he's eating for free). I left a generous tip to cover not only my meal but the owners as well. Personally as a business owner, I won't support a place where ownership treats its staff with such disrespect.
We have eaten here often and also taken out orders.. The fish and chips are the best the halibat and cod is a good thick piece of fish with a light batter and not greasy and the fries are always a nice size and very good.The prices are reasonable and service friendly and fast.
We have tried many fish and chip places and have found Ocean Avenue the best.
I live basically ten minutes from this Whitespot location but prefer to drive to other Whitespots for better service and food preparation.
Been to this location several time and always been disappointed. Even the simple fish & chips dish is a disaster.
Decor is old and depressing. Set up of the restaurant is outdated.
Arrived at 6:30pm, waitress took order at 6:45pm, I asked for the location of our drinks at 7pm, food arrived in stages starting at 7:15pm. I finished eating before my daughter got hers, and her order was a simple box. Food was OK, prices are quite expensive in comparison to most other sushi joints, service is absolutely horrible. We have been here maybe three times in the past year and have found the service to be bad, this last experience was the last straw. If you look around and watch the waitresses, confusion is their specialty. We watched two other tables just give up and leave. This was a Thursday night and it was maybe three-quarters full and numerous waitresses were working. They had better streamline this act or that space they occupy will become a dollar store by next year. My sushi dollar will be spent elsewhere though.
I am in shock that no one has reviewed this bakery. It's been around for at least two years. It's my go to spot to pick up dessert. The cookies are delicious, I am fond of the lemon frosted sugar cookies. Cakes by the slice include passion fruit white chocolate slice. Cupcake flavours change daily. I recommend the chocolate pie if you need a dessert for a gathering, a small sliver will satisfy the chocolate cravings. AND she sells macaroons! Well worth the trip for good quality treats at a fairly reasonable price. Highly recommended.
Came here this past August with a friend of mine after coming back from Point Roberts to fill up on gas and do some grocery shopping.
Upon entering we liked the decor of the Ambiance....We were seated immediatly, as it was early to mid afternoon and there were only a few patrons in the restuarant.
Anyhow, I had ordered a chicken strip appetizer and a cheeseburger meal, and my friend had ordered the pancake breakfast meal. Our food didn't take too long to come. I like the texture of the burger and everything tasted good. It was a little expensive, but I guess that's ok.
I think we'll come back again
Let me start by saying WOW!! That was my first impression when walking through the doors of Akari. They did a nice job of décor inside and your always greeted with (what I think is a friendly “hello” in Japanese). I have been going to Akari for many years now, because I am simply addicted to the amazing flavours of their UNIQUE sushi. I have eaten in most every sushi restaurant in Surrey and Delta and numerous ones in Vancouver. That said, Akari by a land slide is my favourite! These guys make sushi rolls such as the Kamikaze roll and the Hot Night roll which you can’t find done in that style anywhere else. I've been told its all in the special sauces and fresh fish that the Head chef at Akari guards under lock and key. I'm not sure what's in some of these decadent sauces, but to say it they are intoxicatingly addictive would be an understatement. They have a lunch special which includes one of these specialty rolls I have mentioned, a choice of Chicken Kuskiage (my favourite), Agedashi Tofu, Gyoza, Tempura, and a few other choices. It also includes miso soup and salad for only 12.95 and it goes right up until 3pm! .. sorry if I sound excited while writing this, but Im getting hungry just thinking about it. The service is prompt and friendly and everything seems to come out in a timely fashion. The service was outstanding and when I asked about menu items they all have good recommendations and never stop smiling. The only thing I would recommend Akari to change is their washrooms; they are dated and seem out of place. Why do such a good job renovating the entire restaurant and choose it ignore the washrooms? Anyway, aside from this small flaw, I must urge you try the Akari Experience! Its amazing and I HIGHLY recommend this sushi restaurant.
Every once and a while we like to go to Browns Social House just to be reminded about why we do not like going to Browns Social House. The food is average to good but the prices are way over the top. Twenty two dollars for a sandwich? Come on! The bill for lunch for just two of us with just one cola drink was 60 dollars. That is too much for an average restaurant. The service was slow and the waitress seemed genuinely concerned because she apologized for the slow service without any prompting on our part. In another two or three years we may stop by and see again if there have been any improvements.
I work nearby and had come there about two weeks back for lunch with my friends. We ordered lunch special and the food quantity was pretty good for one person. There's a soup and a dish. I ordered the Hot and Sour Soup and a Chilli Chicken and it came with a rice. The food was delicious and there was almost no wait time. My friends had ordered the same soup but a noodle dish. That was good aswell, but it was a little too oily. The only negative to the overall awesome food quality.
The service though was a totally different story. We were three of us friends, he took the order and then put 3 plates and cutlery on the table and made us give it out to each other(!!). Then after putting the food on the table, he dint name which food was which, and my two friends who both ordered noodles had to play the guessing game over who ordered which. I have to tell you, it wasnt that the restaurant was busy and the server was running around, there was only one other table in the restaurant at that time. He was watching tv the whole time. He came to our table after about 15 mins and asked if everything was ok? I looked at my friends, thinking who is this guy? He put a jug of water in our table (dint fill water in our glasses) and went back to his tv.
At the beginning I was wondering to myself how come a restaurant which has fairly good decor located in scott road amongst so many offices be this empty. I think I know now. The big tall indian server there needs to know where he is working is called the "service Industry", I dint see any "service" whatsoever. The owner of this place is probably very rich and never comes to the restaurant, employees taking advantage and so the quality of the service is this pathetic.
The food is good, the service is, you know... worthless. Give it a try your experice could be different.
The success of Mario's has always been dependent on (go figure) Mario. Others have come and gone but Mario has always returned. Interestingly enough, there is now a new owner that might just make it work. He comes with twenty five years of experience at working in some VERY top end restaurants ( Joe Fortes to name one). It should be interesting if he can be as hands on and as "present" at the front door as Mario was, deliver the same quality food with some new surprises, and employ staff that seems glad to be there. If his warm welcome today is any indication, I think he is going to make a go of it and I am looking forward to seeing some "Vancouver expertise" and some QUALITY food come to our corner of the world. Should be interesting.
Stopped here a few nights ago with my husband after helping a friend move. We were so hungry! We walked in and the place looked run down and old. The carpets smelled of stale alcohol. The place was totally outdated. I wanted to move on to something else, but my husband was so hungry that we sat down and gave it a try. We sat in the center and had a slight view of the kitchen and bar. The servers were very friendly, helpful and polite. I ordered a chicken burger and salad with a beer,my husband the fish and a beer. It took a total of maybe 5mins and we had received our food. I remember telling my husband that was too fast and that it should take longer than that to cook a chicken breast. (Cause I am a line cook by trade.) I was a little worried, and for good reason. The salad was boring and consisted of alittle lettuce some what wilted and a few diced tomatoes and not so fresh green onion. The burger was the worst. The chicken was hard and dry and was like chewing on shoe leather, definitly not a fresh breast. That would expain how the food came out so fast. On to my husbands fish, which is definitly not homemade like advertised. Two pieces of fish that look like over cooked hockey pucks that were just pulled from a freezer and forgot about in the deep fryer. But thats not possible cause the food was served to us in 5 min. The only thing worth eating was the fries, but those were disappointing too, cause the rest of the food was horrible. I did not eat my burger and only moved the salad around on my plate. My husband choked down one piece of fish and a few fries just to kill the pain. We had the rest packed to go and threw it out on the way home and hit the drive thru. Pains me to say it was a waste of money and would not go back or tell friends that this is the place to dine.
In fact it is the complete opposite.
