Meet Robb & Lorelei Krueger
After losing the job that Robb Krueger had moved to Haida Gwaii for, he and his wife Lorelei knew they were going to have to forge their own way if they wanted to stay. There was no question that they had fallen in love with their new home, so they began exploring business opportunities. Lorelei had worked in a restaurant for five years and felt that owning a restaurant was a viable option, though Robb wasn’t sure at first. Fast forward to today, and the Kruegers are running not one but two successful restaurants. Their first, Oceanview Restaurant, opened in 2004. They opened OV Pizza & Grill in 2014 to complement their first restaurant and to fill a need in Queen Charlotte for casual, pub-style dining.
Robb attributes the couple’s success in the restaurant business to the close knit community of Queen Charlotte. “You get to know your clientele on a personal level,” he says, and he thinks people feel more comfortable giving you honest feedback when they know you. Robb and Lorelei take customer feedback to heart and constantly work to make the entire experience better for guests.
Besides its friendly people, the Kruegers also appreciate the sense of safety and security in Queen Charlotte. As outdoors enthusiasts, they are grateful for the natural beauty and wild setting of Haida Gwaii. Though they work a lot, they also try to get outside when they can, especially if it involves fishing or going camping.
Fresh. Delicious. Gourmet.
Gourmet pizza and pub-style fresh food await at OV Pizza & Grill. Enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean while you and your family dine in a casual and friendly atmosphere. OV Pizza & Grill is well known around the island for its original-recipe scratch-dough pizzas, but its menu includes a variety of fare from crisp fresh salads to dishes made with local seafood. Stop in for appies, dine in for supper or order one of OV’s epicurean pizzas for take-out.
