Recently we were invited to Chewies Steam & Oyster Bar for a huge Media Bash. It was a massive turn out to their second location now open in Coal Harbour, located on West Hastings Street.

Both the restaurant and the waiters menu are pretty large, and impressive. 😉

There’s likely something for everyone at Chewies, so even if you’re not a fan of oysters per se, you could still dine here and have a lovely meal. Everything from Shrimp and Gritz, Baby Back Ribs to Fried Green Tomato Po’ Boys are available on the daily, not to mention an extensive wine and cocktail list, including one hell of a spicy Caesar ($10.50).

We unfortunately didn’t get to stay at this party for too long, nor taste all that much — so we’ll definitely be returning again for a second more thorough visit. Until then, enjoy some photos we took from that evening.
