July 6, 2020, Burnaby, B.C. – Gateway Casinos & Entertainment is re-opening its restaurants, including signature brands like Atlas Steak + Fish and Match Eatery & Public House.

Over the past weeks, Gateway has been phasing the re-opening of Match locations across British Columbia, starting in Langley, Courtenay, and Campbell River. In addition, the company recently re-opened Atlas Steak + Fish in Langley and their partners at Marriott opened the location in Burnaby.

In March, many industries, including casinos, restaurants, and hospitality venues were mandated to shut down due to recommendations from the provincial governments in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the closure, Gateway has been working diligently to put in place plans and protocols that would allow for the safe and thoughtful re-opening of facilities when it is deemed safe to do so.

“We are very excited to re-open select restaurants and welcome back our team,” says Todd Pollock, VP, food and beverage at Gateway Casinos. “We want to thank everyone for their support and patience during these challenging times as we work diligently to safely return to operations.”


Gateway has been busy working with government and health authorities to review and enhance the standards and protocols to ensure the facilities are clean and safe.

With the re-opening, a new virtual queue system has been implemented that will allow guests to text to join the waitlist and safely wait in their vehicles until their table is ready. The system will allow staff to properly prepare the dining room for each guest, and ensure there is no congestion at the entrance as guests wait to be seated.
