The Old Surrey Restaurant is Surrey’s best well- kept secret. Built in 1918, it was the residence of Lou Jack and his household until it was converted into a restaurant in 1974.

The interior has a crisp, clean aesthetic that is enhanced by hardwood floors and the enlarged photos of historic Surrey that adorn the walls. There are five distinct dining areas on the top floor (including a cozy library) and a banquet facility downstairs. The cuisine is French with a splash of West Coast flare. A treat for new and seasoned guests alike are the signature dishes that are prepared and flambeed tableside.

The restaurant has been family-owned and operated since 1974 and in 1984 the restaurant has entered into a partnership with the family farm in Ryder Lake overlooking Chilliwack from the nearby mountains. The Old Surrey is well known for its free-range lamb and veal allowing customers to enjoy fresh organic ingredients.

    Very nice restaurants for special occasions. For Appetizer, We got the baked crab dip. It was one of the best appetizers we have eaten. For the main course, We got the 12 oz Boneless ribeye and Butternut squash ravioli. Both were delicious and perfectly prepared. The restaurant is on the expensive side but we'll worth the visit. 4.5 out of 5 stars

    Staff are excellent, very well trained, friendly, and engaging. Tableside Cesar & Chateaubriand, top-notch! Service was superb! We went there for our 44th anniversary; it was our first visit, and will definitely not be our last! We have been converted from a family of loyal Hye's patrons (going back to the 60's), to dedicated, loyal 'Old Surrey Restaurant' customer's, hoping to have many more memorable occasions there. Our one and only complaint: 1 person from a table in the NE section was obviously having a very good time, perhaps a bit tipsy, but was extremely loud. It would have been nice if a staff member requested they lower their volume. Listening to what sounded like a cackling witch, took a tad of the romance out of our romantic dinner. However, the food and staff made up for this! Parking is space, be sure to give yourself time to find a spot.

    The food is always amazing here. We went for a set menu on Valentine's Day and we're so happy with everything we were served. They made the Ceasar salad at our table and it was delicious. The steak melted in our mouths, even the side veggies were done to perfection. I don't know how they make the crispy, yet cloud like potatoes but I was hard pressed to decide if I wanted to finish them or my steak as I was getting so full. The creme brule was a perfect way to finish the meal. The service is also top notch: Friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We love coming here for special occasions.

    We celebrated my father's 95th birthday and reserved the private dining room. They were very accommodating. The food was nicely presented and tasted delicious. We appreciated that there was no piped in music that makes it difficult for older people to hear the conversation. We will return to Old Surrey Restaurant.
