Well, we finally moved from Oliver and the first night here in Nanaimo, we went to Brown’s Social House (it was close to the Hotel we were staying in). I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful it was to go in, see smiling customers and staff and wonderful smells abound.
We were seated and after a very brief wait, and our server was over and we chatted about moving here, being exhausted and bring on the glass of wine PLEASE!!! Don ordered his usual drink and now we ordered. I went for the Hollywood Burger. Move over Burger 55, this was wonderful and they promote a gravy for your fries called “the Alaskan Highway Gravy. Don really liked it but I’m not so sure. I will have to try it again to give it an honest rating. Don had the roast beef French dip and he loved it. Trust me – no dessert here. But really enjoyed it here.
Back to the unpacking.
Suzanne and Jade came over to help with the unpacking (and trust me, they worked hard). So…off we go again to Brown’s Social House. As soon as we entered, smiles galore and two of the girls asked us how the move was going. Can you believe it? This is not a small dining establishment and is full all the time. Now, we had not eaten any lunch and were starving. We did have to wait about 5 minutes and they came out with ice water for us to drink while waiting.
Now, here we go again…Don ordered a Virgin Caesar and I, of course, a glass of wine. When we ordered, Don ordered the Shrimp and Chicken Pad Thai. Jade ordered the same as Grandad and Suzanne ordered a burger as well.M e? Of course the Hollywood Burger. Our server said she had never tried it but, after me raving about it as well as having it two nights in a row, was definitely going to try it.
The atmosphere, staff, and food makes this establishment a real winner. I also suggested to Don we make this place our special ‘date night’ place to go to. I really liked it here and I know you will too.
