About Union Street Grill and Grotto

Since 1994, Union Street Grill & Grotto has been considered one of the best Comox Valley restaurants and is a longtime local favourite. Located at 477 Fifth Street in Downtown Courtenay, the heart of the Comox Valley restaurant scene, we offer two distinct dining experiences:

Join us on the “Grill” side for an incredible full-service dining experience, or enjoy the same great menu on the more casual, self-serve “Grotto” side. The Grotto features a play area for the kids and even showcases live music and other events from time to time.

Locally grown in the Comox Valley

We offer an eclectic menu that’s sure to please all tastes, and we’re especially proud to feature locally sourced ingredients from hardworking Comox Valley producers. From fresh seafood and locally raised meats to tortillas, greens and craft-made beer and wine, we’re your spot for a true taste of the Comox Valley.

Why Union Street?

Wondering why we’re called Union Street Grill when we’re located on Fifth Street? The truth is, way back in the 1880s, Fifth Street used be called Union Street. It borrowed its name from the Union Coal Company, which mined the rugged hills of Union (present day Cumberland) and shipped its coal from the nearby port at Union Bay. Why so much “Union”? The name was a tribute to the 1871 union of British Columbia with the rest of Canada.

Our name honours this proud, hardworking Comox Valley heritage.
