I looked at the line up in front of me and expected a long wait but decided to chance it. They moved through more than a dozen people in front of us in a timely fashion before we could give our order. We only had a short wait after ordering, that was so worth it. The fish and chips and... More

We had the fish and chips and brought them back to eat at our rental home, on our last night in Victoria. They were delicious! They certainly don't skimp on the chips either! Unfortunately some or rather quite a few chips went out in the garbage, only because there were too many, not that they weren't very tasty! The halibut... More

Amazing fish and chips for a real good price. Their seating area is closed in on 3 sides so it's quite comfortable even when it's cool and windy.

This small restaurant on fisherman's wharf in Victoria was very good. We visited about 6:30 pm. The meal (two piece fish and chips) was excellent. The fish was two large pieces, battered in a nice seasoning, the chips (fries) were not greasy and we did not have to wait long for the meals. The service is good, but be aware... More

Good spot for a lunch after a seaside walk. Touristic but nice place. The seafood chowder tasted good and is good to warm up.

Had a two piece steamed halibut dinner with fries. I was expecting the halibut to be seasoned or served with a sauce, but it was not. It was just literally steamed halibut served with a small side of tartare and fries. The taste of tartare didn't even match the steamed halibut. To top it off, the meal also came with... More

Had fish and chips down on the dock on a lovely Victoria evening. Watched the ferries come and go while enjoying delicious fish and chips. Cost is very reasonable.

The food here was so good we ordered chicken and chips and fish and chips plus a drink with free refills. It was around $25 for everything and the portion size is huge. My partner even said she probably could of just had a kids portion, as it was so big. Everything cooked fresh and it's really nice to sit... More
