We had a fabulous waiter, Glenn, who allowed us to move to a big picture window before our food arrived. I ordered a gin/tonic and got what tasted like a ginless/tonic. The garden salad was superb and the crab cakes had much more crab than filler...yummy. The crab risotto was bland for my mouth. We were entertained by customs/immigration like activity on the dock. Barb's salmon was excellent and Anne's halibut was good. We enjoyed the evening.

The Blue Crab is located in the Coast Victoria Hotel. (I miss that wonderful hotel already). I had the best clam chowder, best breakfast of omelette, best fish and chips. The restaurant overlooks the wonderful inner harbor. When I visit Victoria again, I have to make sure that I stay at Coast Victoria and eat at Blue Crab.

Excellent menu and service for the seafood lover. Wine list and bar service were top notch. Crab risotto was superb. Not cheap but worth a visit.
