This place has become a staple for my wife and I every time I come to Nanaimo. They specialize in battered salmon, cod, and halibut and I highly recommend all 3 (wish this was a menu item on its own!). They also serve shrimp, which...More

It is very difficult to find. It is a floating dock, first, it is small place. You order from a window, the girl was somewhat helpful but I couldn't get pass how grungy it was. You sit at picnic tables that were not clean. The...More

Kind of a hole in the wall(water) place. Nothing fancy. Very good food in a casual and pleasant setting. Great place to get a quick meal.
