Not Your Typical Bar & Grill Dining Experience
This is definitely not your typical casual bar & grill establishment as you are about to see below. There’s no greasy deep fried fatty food here! Everything on the menu is freshly prepared with attention to detail. I’m glad we arrived early on our visit on a weekday, because shortly after arriving, the place was packed!
Below is just a sample of what to expect when dining at the Watershed. I’m sure this will surprise you as it did us.
Select from a dozen delicious appetizers from the menu to enjoy with your beverage or as a starter for your lunch or dinner. From a fresh Prawn Cocktail, Seared Albacore Tuna, Local BC Chicken Wings to Veggie Spring Rolls just to get you started.
The three of us chose the fresh prawn cocktail as a starter to share. Eight prawns served with in-house made cocktail sauce and lemon wedges.
A great starter to enjoy with our locally brewed craft beer!
An Extensive Menu At The Watershed
The menu variety is simply too large to list here, the choices are incredible! Choose from freshly prepared salads, superb sandwiches, organic beef specialty burgers, wild salmon, pasta to mouth- watering ribs and steak.
As I said, this is not your ordinary bar & grill!
Salmon & Prawn Pasta
My wife selected the fresh salmon and prawn pasta dish. Mixed with tomato sauce, cream, garlic, parmesan, smoked paprika with toasted garlic bread on the side.
It was an excellent choice, a healthy and tasty dish prepared with care.
I selected the award winning Watershed specialty, the River Burger. This burger was previously voted as the Best Burger in BC, and it was certainly voted for very good reason. It was one of the best prepared burgers I have eaten while dining out anywhere!
Prepared with local organic beef with bacon, cheddar cheese, peppercorn sauce and in-house mayonnaise, it was outstanding!
Wild Sockeye Salmon Burger
Our son who joined us for dinner chose the wild salmon burger. This is another great healthy menu choice to select from. A fresh wild salmon filet served with wasabi mayonnaise with fresh tomato, lettuce, dill served with a choice of side including sweet potato fries.
Another excellent choice!
You better save room for dessert because the freshly made large portions of pie and cheesecake are fabulous! As a matter of fact, my piece of apple pie was so big, I needed a doggy bag for at least half of the order.
As you can see, the food and choices are absolutely first rate, with care taken in preparing each and every dish. Staff are friendly and courteous, making this a very special place to enjoy your favorite beverage at the bar and /or lunch and dinner any time!
For those passing through on weekends, the grill is open for breakfast serving farm fresh eggs, bacon and multi-grain French toast!
