Ordered special Valentine's dinner and pointed dinner as shown on tv screen to server. As she did not think it was until Sunday & said she wd check if available. Yes, we could order. We wanted the desert as advertised & she said it was not included with dinner & would have to charge us. Spoiled a wonderful evening.

You must eat at the Match Casino. The food is the best in the Comox Valley value for the price. A most generous happy hour 3 pm to 6 pm.

Superb Service. My steak sandwich was to die for, our waitress new her menu and wine list. Best value in the valley.
Covid protocols well regulated. Firm but not aggressive.

We will eat at Match regularly
