For traditional haircuts, Barb (and other Barb) are fantastic! I used to go to the $13 places for a quick cut, but was never satisfied with the result. Didn't seem to matter what style, but especially when it came to those that required heavy clipper work. One day I dared to ask for an old school tapered cut, and Barb (owner) delivered. The next time I went in, other Barb was the only one working, but I asked for the same cut regardless, and again I couldn't have been happier. I used to dread my bi-weekly haircut, but now I look forward to it.

A great all-around restaurant, with a little something for everyone. Yet to have a bad meal or bad experience in any regard. Staff has always been friendly, sociable, and attentive. Bread by a local bakery. Free range beef and poultry. Lots of organic items through-out the menu, and even gluten free dishes.

Took my vehicle here for a windshield replacement, and couldn't have been happier with the work and the customer service. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff, who walked me through everything they were going to do, and once again when the work was complete. There's no doubt that they take pride in their work.

My wife and I hired Two Small Men to move our family from Ontario to BC. After doing extensive research, we settled on Two Small Men due to their excellent reputation on Better Business Bureau. Their rating was A-, with only 3 complaints filed in the last 3 years; all of them having been resolved. Little did we know, they would sub-contract AMS Transportation to handle our move. Had we known about this previous to the move date, we would not have agreed, since AMS have a C- rating with 26 complaints in 3 years, and 5 left unresolved. After doing a quick search, I found dozens of horror stories in regards to dealing with AMS. Many of them echoing the very same issues we ran into. Neither AMS nor Two Small Men did anything to compensate us for being a full week late on delivery, and neither company is taking any sort of accountability. The one positive thing I can say about Two Small Men, is that their communication was good, for the most part. Once we started expressing our concerns and asking for someone to take responsibility, it was a little harder to get them to return our phone calls and emails.

Been here a few times, and yet to be disappointed. Food is excellent, atmosphere is great, and you really can't beat the view on a nice day. My favourite place in Sooke for deep-fried battered fish. Try the fish sticklers - so good!

I've hired Sooke Glass on two separate occasions, for two different types of work. The first being custom screens for my home, which they did an excellent job on. They hit the dates promised for delivering and installation, and there hasn't been a single issue with the screens since they were installed. I would definitely recommend Sooke Glass for work on windows and screens in home. But auto glass work; that's another story entirely. When my windshield needed replaced, I was recommended Sooke Glass by family, and since they're a local, family run business, which I've had a previous good experience with, I decided to bring my vehicle to them. To make a long story short, I ended up bringing the vehicle back four times due to wind noise and insane moisture build-up on the inside of the windshield. Frustrated, I took my vehicle to another local shop and asked them to take a look at it. They said the installation was sloppy, but no obvious problems from the outside. I decided to bite the bullet and pay out of pocket to have the windshield replaced by the second shop. When they remove the seal around the glass, they called me to come in and take a look. It turned out that Sooke Glass use a fraction of the bonding material required for a windshield installation, and there were huge gaps all around, between the glass and the frame of the car. The only way to correct it, was to remove the glass and completely reapply the bonding material. Photos and an explanation were sent to Sooke Glass once the second proper installation was completed, in hopes that they would reimburse me, at least in part, for the terrible job they did, but no dice.

My complaints echo those of many others, it seems. Parking was $20, and I guess they can get away with that given that it's the only lot remotely close to the venue. It seemed like it would be a nightmare to get out of the lot (turning left) and onto Cherry St. (another left), but we left early and avoided any potential lines. Drinks are crazy expensive. $6.50 for a domestic beer. Outside was quite nice, as they have lots of patio tables and chairs, outdoor pool tables, TVs so you can see what's going on inside, and a great view of the harbor. Inside was another story all together. It's a long, flat room. I'm 6'2", so I didn't have a problem seeing, but my wife who stands only 5'3" didn't see much other than the shoulders and heads of those in front of her. I'm not sure if the venue was over capacity, or just really full, but we could not move once the headliner took the stage. Despite being rammed, people continually tried to squeeze their way to the front, which resulted in us getting pushed farther and farther back. Only 3 songs into the headliner's set, we decided to move back, which proved to be nearly impossible. It took us nearly 15 minutes to get to the back of the venue, and there wasn't much more breathing room there, so we decided to leave. The sound was excellent, for both openers and the headliner. No complaints there. Good sound and a nice patio isn't enough for me to subject myself to a miserable night at Sound Academy again. Next time one of my favourites bands is playing there, I'll be taking a pass.
