On The Rocks Bar & Lounge

If you're dining at The Pointe Restaurant, you might plan to arrive a half an hour early to enjoy a classic cocktail, glass of wine or flight of scotches at our On the Rocks Bar and Lounge. Here we feature an excellent selection of Pacific Northwest wines, a quality range of classic ports and one of B.C.'s largest selection of single-malt scotches.

Enjoying an invigorating afternoon walk on Chesterman Beach during storm season? Come into On The Rocks Bar and Lounge to warm up with a hot toddy and comforting bowl of fresh chowder.

Chefs Warren Barr and David Sider are committed to providing you with the freshest, locally sourced ingredients possible. As such specific items in each menu selection may change based on availability. Although updated on a regular basis, onsite menus may show slight variations from the below.
