Tomahawk Restaurant

The Tomahawk Restaurant in North Vancouver is Vancouver’s oldest family run restaurant. I found out about this restaurant because it was recently featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives and I’ve made it my mission to try every restaurant in Vancouver featured on the show. I met up with some local foodies, Diana, Anita, Angela, and Kathy one weekend and we all made a trip out to North Van to try this place. The restaurant was packed on a Saturday afternoon and we ended up having to wait 45 minutes for a table.

I always get excited when I see the Triple D stamp on the wall because I’ve been a fan of the show for so long.

After watching the show I knew I wanted to order the beef dip ($15) because they are known for their roast beef. The beef dip came on a toasted french baguette which was a crispy at first but unfortunately got soggy fast. The sandwich was piled high with juicy sliced beef and the meat was good quality and covered in melted cheese. The side of au jus was delicious and definitely made the meal. It had a deep rich beef flavour and a perfect consistency that wasn’t too watered down. The fries were good but not great and what you would expect at a diner.

Overall I enjoyed my meal here, however, it was a bit expensive for a casual diner restaurant and it definitely isn’t worth waiting an hour for. If you want to try this place, avoid lunch time on weekends because it gets packed.


Yes, for a classic beef dip sandwich.
