Saska's (Mission Beach)

Anyone been lately?

Have two birthdays to celebrate this week with a party of six, but only one car that seats 5... My dad's rental is practically next door and would allow us to drive over from Crown Point without requiring additional transportation planning.

N.B. - I know there are better options in the area, but this option means the least fuss. Just want to make sure the food is edible, not necessarily "Chow-worthy".

    Armandos Green Flash.

    Bike ride to Rockys for a burger and beer or a Crest Liquor deli sandwich..

      Thanks, BC.
      I'd forgotten about Patio - same issue as many other options (JRDN, Fishery, Cantina), just a little out of convenient walking distance. But, to try something new, I might just ride my bike over and load everyone else into the car...
      Or, I'll take one for the team at Saska's and report back.

        Only been to Patio once, for lunch, and it was nothing special. Average food, loud inside and very crowded outside with small tables too close together and too many umbrellas, heaters and dog bowls to dodge.

          We had a pretty good experience at The Patio about a month after it opened (lunch). Return visits (especially at dinner) have been more uneven. Friendly service, OK food, nice atmosphere, great wine list, the the canine companions take over on the weekend. Meh.

            Ack! Thanks guys! LMOA on the "dog-bowl-dodge".

            Looked at Saska's menu at couldn't believe the prices were so high! I know it's a steakhouse and all, but wasn't really prepared for that.

            Maybe it's back to the Fishery then...
