I was looking for a great place in Richmond to have a good ol' fashion shake. I have fond memories of having a shake a few years ago at Soda's (West side of Vancouver) and was looking for something comparable.
Quantity: A significant amount for a couple of glasses, typical, but fair
Quality: Nothing special here. I think the ingredients were average. Chunks of ice cream plugged the straw. tasted like something I'd try and make at home
Price: At $5.00, a bit expensive
Service: Friendly young girls, but not knowledgeable about how to make a milkshake
They made a good effort, but I probably would not buy another for $5.

Went to this restaurant with the family last mothers' day.
The establishment needed repairs and renos (laminate floor falling apart).
The food was average or less. It was a buffet day; however it was a real sparse buffet. Deserts were kept in the kitchen (pudding or something, maybe creme brulee ) Service was average. Parking fees in the lot.
I understad the Quay is nearly empty now, so I don't know if this has impacted LB or if it remains open.

Layout and decour is better than avg - lots of photos, marine theme, vaulted ceiling, big screens, pool table sometimes, probably has darts somewhere, structured to accomodate lrg groups. Property is clean, parking is fine.
The food is definately above average pub style. Menu is respectable with a good selection, but I'm usually not keen on being adventurous at this establishment. The servers come and go like the wind - high turnover. Usually are mediocre on a good day. The attire chosen by some of the girls is somewhat dicey - not my style.
This is another establishment that seems it should be one or two notches better than what it presents. The new housing in the area is not cheap 1/2 million dollars +++ and so they should (re)consider what demographic is in the immediate vicinity.
I hope they can pick up their game.

I first visited this place in about 2001 with a friend and presented an Ent coupon. It was the only time I was ever asked to also show the Ent card (my wife had it). This was a sign of oddness and uneasy times ahead.
All three times the meals were under-performers. The service has been poor -- long waits, not friendly, no customer service.
You would think that this place could have a real niche market - they have no competition in the category on Columbia. You get the feeling that they are trying to go out-of-business with the service level and quality that is presented.
I will not go a fourth time.
