Pacific Prime Steak & Chophouse (Parksville, BC)
You know when you realize that you’ve got A LOT of content still left behind? That’s seriously been the theme of my weekend, and it looks like it’s going to be the theme of THIS week. I have eaten dinner and breakfast at Pacific Prime Steak & Chophouse (the restaurant of The Beach Club Resort in Parksville, on Vancouver Island) at least five times, and I have NEVER written about it. Ridiculous, I know.
The first time I think I ever had dinner at Pacific Prime Steak & Chophouse I think was last summer when my Mom visited me. We went on a holiday to Parksville and Qualicum Beach and we stayed at The Beach Club Resort. And as you can imagine, we had a fantastic time.
The dinner menu is really solid, with a variety of seafood, vegetarian and meat-based dishes.
In my opinion, despite its name (Pacific Prime Steak & Chophouse), the dishes that are the most delicate, savoury and delicious at this restaurant are seafood-based. When we had dinner here for the Parksville Uncorked Wine and Food Festival 2011, we ate a number of seafood dishes and these were amazing, same thing when I had dinner here with my Mom.
Pacific Prime’s linguine with giant prawn is absolutely stellar.
And yes, I know I’m weird. I hate cheese but absolutely love cheesecake. And look at this cheesecake!
I would strongly recommend that, if you are ever in Parksville, whether you stay or not (and I’d recommend you DO) at the Beach Club Resort, you should try Pacific Prime Steak & Chophouse at least once in your lifetime. It’s totally worth it. And the prices for entrées, appetizers and drinks are on-par with great restaurants in Vancouver, so not too expensive. Good value for your money.
Disclosure: The first time I ate at Pacific Prime with my Mom, our dinner was complimentary courtesy of The Beach Club Resort. We had breakfast there twice and I paid for that on my own dime. I attended a Burrowing Owl Winemakers’ Dinner there in 2010 that was also complimentary, but then I also had dinner there one night afterwards and I paid on my own dime.
