The White Whale Restaurant

About the business

Our Story

The White Whale Restaurant is a young, but trend setting business in the Comox Valley. It all started when Max Oudendag (GM) and Aaron Rail (Chef) met over a pint and decided to take the plunge into business ownership. The two shared a passion for good local food and craft beer… two things they felt were under appreciated at the time in Courtenay. The addition of a third partner, Robin McKamey (bookkeeping) and securing an amazing location turned the concept into a reality!

Been a couple of times now and things are definitely consistent. Food is good, not great, but good. Prices are descent. Limited menu, but that makes decisions easier. Good options for kids. They have a sushi bar which I believe opened at 5 and provides better than average sushi for Comox Valley. Large drink selection. It is always busy, but the staff are very good at taking care of you. I have given it 5 stars, but they could improve a bit on some of the dishes.

Its worth the visit. Good for the beer and the "buck a shuck" oysters on the 1/2 shell between 3 & 5 everyday. Lots of different crafts on tap, they don't brew their own. All window wrap around looking on the river. Dock platform on river if you want to kayak/boat up. Sushi bar inside, I think just for evenings, you'll have to check. Food is enjoyable, I haven't had a bad meal. Above normal for pub food. Nice outside deck for summer, not in use over colder months.

Absolutely huge craft beer selection! They also offer a great variety of food, and even have a house Sushi chef. The atmosphere is cozy, and the staff is friendly. They have a significant amount of outdoor seating, which has a good view of the river. The food is a bit on the pricey side, but they use all local ingredients.
