This White Spot has been one of my family's haunts for as long as I can consciously remember being. It is in the middle price range, more or less the most typical dining experience you can get. It's not explicitly offering cheap as dirt food like McDonalds or Burger King, but it's not overly classly and exclusive like the Cannery or Tojos.
I am not what one might call a seasoned restaurateur however from what I have experienced in Vancouver I would say White Spot is a sort of non-glorified, few-frills Cactus Club, definitely without the quality of washrooms.
However, for a great place you can take your family and depend upon for consistency all across the board, this particular White Spot is great. About 5-8 years ago the restaurant underwent a major renovation that upped the ambiance from diner to diner-pub. They added a new seating style along with horse-shoe black leather seats in a special bar section. Over all though, this place has changed little.
The waiters are the same and still remember us. There's the Indian lady who is co-manager, the guy with the ponytail who is manager, as well as favourites like Justin and Nick, both of whom are gay.
Among White spots this place is great. They always top off the milkshake with an extra tin of more milkshake, the service is never more than half an hour from entrance to meal, and hey, there's a reason White Spot has become a franchise, eh?
Personally here are the most frequently ordered dishes by me and my clan:
Fettuccine Alfredo, Chicken Veronica Salad, Legends Burger, Bacon Burger, Milkshakes, Mountain Madness, Pirate Packs, Chicken Pot Pie (when they have it), Yam Fries, and loads more.
