Sporty Bar & Grill

in Port Hardy

Great service and pub grub push this regular-looking neighborhood bar to the top of the Port Hardy dine-out tree. Sporty's (as everyone calls it) offers hearty burgers, pizzas and fish-and-chips – and also a great-value Cobb salad ($14) that's well worth face-planting into. Beer-wise, eschew the Lucky Lager (the north's traditional favorite) and go for Victoria-brewed Hermann's Dark Lager.
