Chad’s West Coast Grill

Chad’s West Coast Grill is a new addition to the Port Coquitlam restaurant scene on the prominent corner of Lougheed Highway and Ottawa Street near Costco and Save-on-Foods. Changed over from Applebee’s from the inside out, Chad’s is all new.

Executive Chef Jamie McMath has created a menu of West Coast favourites that includes fresh seafood (of course!) as well as casual fare with definite Pacific Rim flavours. Owner Chad Huff has been in the restaurant business for years with different restaurants up and down Vancouver Island as well as the Lower Mainland. He brought his namesake to the Tri-Cities in October of 2012. Promising a casual dining experience, Chad’s has lots of game day specials for Canucks hockey viewing, as well as its signature ‘Bad Ass Burgers’ and seafood entrees.

I dropped in for a rare ‘childless’ lunch with my wife on a Saturday and sunk my teeth into a Philly steak melt. Strip loin steak, gilled onions, mushrooms, peppers and melted white cheddar warmed me right up on a dreary west coast day. I enjoyed my sandwich and look forward to trying other menu items in the future. My wife chose a loaded potato skin appie as her main course for lunch and made short work of her plate.

Perhaps next time a dinner visit would encourage me to try out some of the more complex seafood menu items or a Bad Ass Burger on a game night. A good place to start in planning your visit to Chad’s is their website to check out their ‘daily deal’. Each day of the week has a featured ‘daily deal’ such as Pasta Night, all you can eat ribs, burger and beer night or ‘date night’ – buy one entree at the regular price and get a second at half price.

Personally I prefer local restaurants as opposed to the great big chains. It looks like Chad’s is ready to draw on its West Coast roots and become a part of the neighbourhood.
