Fine Dining

Awaken your senses at the Cedar Post Restaurant and Gallery. Blind Channel’s 62-seat restaurant overlooking the marina is truly a hidden gem in the wilderness.

The late Annemarie Richter was the driving force behind the Cedar Post, serving as the chef for the first 12 years. Many of her signature German recipes are still being used today. She’s also responsible all of the magnificent artwork displayed throughout the dining room. The mosaics, wall hangings, and paintings are almost as breathtaking as the view.

At the Cedar Post Inn, guests are inspired by the use of fresh ingredients and commitment to quality food which reflects the land and sea that surround us.  As we are located in such a naturally abundant area, we strive to use local and seasonal ingredients whenever possible. Fresh herbs, edible flowers, and produce are harvested daily from our gardens, and we serve wild seafood from BC waters.

The Cedar Post is open for dinner service from late May until mid-September and is available for groups and private functions on and off-season. Additionally, we serve lunch on the patio during our peak season, from late June to the end of August. Please let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements and our chefs will do their best to accommodate your needs.

Each summer we host four evenings of dinner with live music. See our Events page for details.
