Had a celebratory dinner there and everything was so tasty from the crispy mushrooms to the chai crème brûlée to the blueberry lavender lemonade. Beautiful spot to eat outside and friendly service. What else could you want?

The service was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. The mushroom eggs benny that I ordered are among the best eggs benny I've ever had; and, the burger my husband ordered was among the best he's ever had. We definitely give the experience a double-thumbs-up (and 5 stars)!

This is HANDS DOWN my favourite place to eat!! The food there is delicious & nutritious. Service was great! The Patio is well heated. The chef prepares your food fast but with finesse, quality & care.

Plus, unbeknownst to us, Jimmy (THE OWNER) was there and gifted us by paying for a lot of our appetizers!! He’s a generous man. So nice !! We were absolutely cared for. Extraordinaire!

Pitchfork is Definitely a wonderful venue to experience:

TRUE LOCAL KOOTENAY cuisine.

Fancy yet affordable.
Simply Amazing.

A HIGH Five with Stars and beyond!!

Thank you to all the wonderful staff.
A very big THANK YOU.

Was a quiet Monday night so we weren't competing for the server's attention. Server was personable and made some good suggestions. Food was delicious, we shared the stuffed chicken breast and the Steelhead dishes having started with the clams and mussels. The outdoor dining on the covered patio was very comfortable with overhead heaters and glass partitions between the tables.

Pitchfork is one of the best places I have ever ate at. Such good service and food. We went for my friends 27th birthday and they accommodated her friend from Australia wanting to buy her a couple drinks. Great staff, amazing food and great location!

The outdoor patio was warm and comfy. Food was great. The classic rock playlist slightly off-putting. We questioned $30 dahl... usually inexpensive, simple food and ordered it after being persuaded it was a huge serving. It wasn't. And it was really good... maybe a $18 dahl. The other items were delicious and priced as expected . The cocktails were fabulous as always.

We enjoyed a fabulous late lunch. The day was sunny and bright and chilly. I was pleasantly surprised to be toasty warm on the heated patio. My hubby’s burger was amazing and the fries were crisp and delicious with a yummy house made dip! My mushroom burger was divine as was the side salad and house dressing. Our server was first class! Top notch experience overall and we highly recommend Pitchfork Eatery!

Absolutely loved it, as usual. We came for a Sunday AM patio brunch for my partner's birthday.

It was sunny out, but with a chilly wind—they had the heaters going, and the new siding on the patio is tall and wooden, so keeps the breeze down—felt just right.

The food at brunch always blows our minds. We had the calamari, Poké salad (great textures) and breakfast sandwich to share. All gluten-free with great GF substitutes where needed.

Drinks were stellar—my partner had an espresso martini and I had a lavender lemonade.

We always love coming here—best service in town, consistently, by far.

Thanks for having us! Will be back (obviously).

Pitchfork was an excellent choice considering the current health restrictions. Outside, heated dining was not bad at all. Amazing food and service and such friendly staff. Highly recommend.

The Patio at Pitchfork was an excellent option, heaters worked well, ambiance was amazing and an there an overall chill vibe. Presentation was excellent and food was delicious. Only reason not 5/5 is was a bit on the pricey side. Will go back for sure.

Small menu but absolutely excellent. We have eaten the same thing every time we go - and it is exactly the same, never poorly prepared. Waiters are very competent, friendly and efficient. Patio is quiet and beautifully landscaped. Gorgeous views.
