Kingfishers Waterfront Bar and Grill (Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Canada)
The Kingfishers Waterfront Bar and Grill, 23840 River Road, Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Canada. Located right on the mighty Fraser River about 45 minutes east of Vancouver, B.C. There are lots of logging mills etc. in this area and it is on the north side of the river just before the old ferry landing before they built the Golden Ears Bridge. Decent sized parking lot. It is going with this new trend here, where kids can go in one half of the bar.......hhhhmmmm. They have 11 different craft beer on tap. You can buy the standards buy the bottle or can if you wish. My friends had a Russell beer which is a local beer and quite liked it. There is a double sided bar that one side is adults only and the other kids are let in. Outside is a nice patio area over looking the river, and with a southern exposure on a nice day it is sunny and hot a great place to be!! For lunch I had the Salmon and Crab burger that had aioli sauce, lettuce, tomato, on a brioche bun with home made French fries. It was very good as were the fries were homemade. I could not eat everything as the portions are very generous. There were several TV's but I get the feeling that people don't come here to watch the game as the Seattle Seahawks were playing and most bars would be packed with football fans. On the wall sides they have nice half circle booths that can hold 4 people easily. Great for watching the bar, people or the game. Service was very good and friendly. They were always around but not intrusive. My buddy had the fish and chips and he said the were very good, he too was very full at the end of his meal. I would love to come back here and sit out side over locking the Fraser River ..aaahhhh! I really enjoyed it here!!!
