Darcy's Pub — 1127 Wharf Street — (250) 380-1322 —

Classic Beef Burger
$12+$2 for Bacon and Cheese

Darcy's Pub seems to be one of the few restaurants on Wharf Street that locals actually frequent. This may be due to the fact there's a popular club upstairs, but maybe there's something more...

...or maybe there isn't. Darcy's is a fun place with a casual atmosphere, but the food is pretty standard pub-fare.

I decided against going for the house "Sanchez Burger" (refried beans and salsa on a burger could go a lot of different ways) and went for the classic beef instead. It took close to an hour for the burger to arrive. That's just way too long: no matter how busy you may be.

When I took my first bite I was a little upset by the crunchiness of the top bun: it felt more stale than toasted. The menu led me to believe there was green relish mayo on the burger, but a surfeit of mustard killed most of the mayo flavour. There are some burgers that lend themselves well to heavy amounts of mustard, but Darcy's has meat that deserves a decent mayo.

The meat is what you'd expect in any average pub, and the entire package was sort of ho-hum.

Verdict: A middle-of-the-road kind of experience.

that burger appears to have a nice amount of bacon on it

i popped into darcy's last week and ate... well i don't even remember. it was one of the burgers on the menu, likely chicken-based. it also took forever to show up but thankfully the harbour sunset view made the afternoon more enjoyable.
