Today was the grand opening of Neddy’s Grill – A new restaurant based out of a food truck in Ahousaht with a ton of history behind it’s name and location.

Those who were at the opening ceremony were able to meet Neddy herself, meet the cooks and their families, and hear about the man who volunteered to fight in WWII and who was given the land the grill now sits on, as thanks.

It was a special day! The grill gave out free hotdogs and chumas (NuuChahNulth word for dessert/sweet treat) and there was lots of laughter! I am really looking forward to heading back for some popcorn shrimp and zucchini sticks!

We don’t have many restaurant options in Ahousaht. There’s no Boston Pizza or McDonalsds, no Earl’s or Milestone’s…. Just some home based restaurants and take-outs. Between all the options, most hours and food groups are covered – Pizza, hotwings, burgers, poutine and chumas. Neddy’s Grill is bringing an expanded menu, free delivery (Not always available when you do order food here), and is adding many more employment opportunities to our small community. I look forward to continuing to support ALL our local vendors!
