The D I offers half price appetizers and drinks for Happy Hour every evening from 4 to 6 pm. All appies are large enough to share. We like their chicken wings, calamari, and spring rolls. If you are just looking for a drink and a snack then their nachos are perfect.

There were nine of us and another table with six guest. We had appointments at 1:30 and two of our guest had to leave. Disappointed in the time line it took to receive our food. We have eaten here on special occasions many times. This was the first time we had this type of experience. Hopefully it was just a bad day and not an indication of the facility failing. Read less

We were staying at the hotel and didn't really fancy the restaurant as it looked a bit dark and lacking atmosphere. However the Friday night buffet of Prime Rib tempted us. It was great!! The restaurant was packed and we took the last table. Excellent beef. Excellent value!!

We enjoyed lunch and dinners at the DI on three separate occasions. All meals were very good in the small but pleasant dining room. We were seated quickly (had made dinner reservations) and were served quickly. The seving staff were responsive, friendly and helpful≥ For lunch my wife and I both had the halibut and chips, the halibut was moist and the french fries were well done and not at all greasy. The first dinner we both had steaks which were cooked just as ordered, were tender and tasty. The vegetables were fresh and good, as were the salads. The Friday night roast beef buffet was exceptionally good, with several salads, and a good variety of desert fruits and cakes and at $25 per plate, couldn't be beat price wise. This is definitely a place we will return to when in Campbell River. Read less
