GOODS: Dockside Pairing Up With Big Lou’s Butcher Shop For Big Patio BBQ On BC Day
The GOODS from Dockside
Vancouver, BC | Summer long weekends and the BBQ are a perfect match and on BC Day, Monday, August 6th Dockside Restaurant will welcome Big Lou’s Butcher Shop as they make a guest appearance to cook up some of their award-winning locally-sourced meats on Dockside’s famous patio. The Big Lou’s Butcher Shop team will be cooking up and serving their grill classics to enjoy on Dockside’s patio from 12-5pm on BC Day. This is the first time that the Big Lou’s Butcher Shop team have offered their BBQ to the public outside of their shop and it will be a one-of-a-kind chance to enjoy Big Lou’s Butcher Shop in one of Vancouver’s most spectacular settings.
Working closely with Dockside Chef Simon McNeil, they’ve created a menu which incorporates Dockside’s signature beers into the recipes. Along with classic beer-braised beef ribs and Old Bridge Dark Lager BBQ Pulled Pork, Big Lou’s will be serving a unique Sloping Hills Pork and Shrimp Sausage made with Dockside’s hibiscus-infused Jamaican Lager and served with a housemade Hibiscus brown mustard. The cost is just $18 per person for a heaping plate of BBQ and sides and, of course, the BBQ goes perfectly with one of Dockside’s fresh in-house brewed signature beers. Menu and details after the jump…
Come celebrate BC Day at Dockside with some of the best BBQ around on Vancouver’s best patio.

The Dockside Restaurant offers superbly prepared classic dishes in a setting like no other. Located on the waterfront where Granville Island faces the city, guests can enjoy panoramic views across False Creek to the world-famous cityscape of Yaletown and beyond to the mountains of the North Shore.
The open dining room is relaxed yet refined, wrapped in spectacular floor to ceiling windows, while the lounge offers warm intimate surroundings for evening cocktails. The award-winning patio catches sunlight from morning to late afternoon. Protected on three sides it’s an oasis of calm, disturbed only by the occasional sound of boats making their way along False Creek. Recent renovations have added fireplaces and casual seating areas to this Vancouver destination.
These three venues offer seating options that are perfect for groups from 4 to 200. With signature elements like a 50-foot aquarium and an open kitchen, each meal is an experience for all the senses. Located adjacent to the boutique Granville Island Hotel, the Dockside Restaurant is open seven days a week serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Reservations are recommended.
“This is our very favorite place. We drive into town from Delta and make an evening of browsing through Granville Isl. Market. The restaurnat is perfect for a quiet evening.View is wonderful. I appreciate the spacious arrangement of the tables. We have our favorite table, the staff and service is fabulous. I had the herb crusted Halibut – it was delicious and my husband enjoyed the slate fish. It was a memorable evening. We look forward to another visist very soon. As well, we have enjoyed the great patio – has to be one of Vancouver’s best.” OpenTable.com
“We have going to Vancouver for many years and most recently (if twenty years can be considered recently) staying exclusively at the wonderful Graville Island Hotel. Because we have an aversion to hotel restaurants, this is the first time we have had dinner there. It was one of the finest dinners we have in a city that is known for its fine restaurants. Outstanding in every way!” OpenTable.com
“We enjoyed the welcoming feel of the restaurant – appropriate lighting, comfortable seating – it is like a comfortable dining room. We will return again as the restaurant has once again met our expectations. The salmon was nicely prepared and the lamb was well presented and excellent on the tongue. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.” OpenTable.com
