The Beacon Landing Pub and Restaurant. Sidney, BC Canada

This is a fine example of why one should never pick a burger on the basis of a good looking pub and a great waterfront view. At the foot of Sidney, by the pier, on the water, the Beacon Landing Pub has a lot going for it. A good burger isn't one of them.

So much potential, ground chuck, roma tomatoes, caramelized onions, great home cut fries and yet a terrible burger. How can so much good stuff have so little flavour?

The patty was absolutely tasteless. Did they bother seasoning this thing?

But the kicker, that nudged this burger over the ledge of crappiness was the bun. This day, perhaps multi day, old monstrosity crumbled in my hands with every bite, making the burger impossible to eat and a hopeless mess.

3.5/10 and only for the fries and the view. For gods sake, just give me a fresh bun and you have an almost passable burger.

I will not be back. Haro's is across the street, next time I need to kill some time before catching the ferry. I'm hoping their burger is better. Let's face it, it's not going to be a big task.
