Dicks Fish and Chips is the best thing about the otherwise unpleasant main drag of Campbell River. The pontoon on which Dicks Fish and Chips sits, is cute, the fish and chips are excellently cooked and properly home made. The music is foot tapplingly retro. If you are forced to spend time in this location, the food, the music, and the charm of the visuals is a welcome relief the suprisingly charmless Island Highway.

Good food, fun sitting outside on the dock, close tables lets people interact, friendly customers and service staff, holes in tables hold up your chips in a very clever way, not cheap but fresh fish rarely is, go try it

We tried the cod and halibut and salmon!! All were really good, big portions, nice and fresh and not over-battered. The fries were fresh and the whole works is served in a paper cone. You can't beat the location on the water; we saw scuba divers and a seal during our lunch.

If your main concern is great food this is the place! On a sunny day there's nothing better than sitting outside on the water. As there are only 4 inside tables you may need a plan B if the weather is bad (i.e.- take out). This is probably the best fish I've had, either halibut or cod, both excellent. Holes in the table top to seat your cone (the meal is in a paper cone). The outside benches and tables are rustic to put it mildly but we were were there for the food not the decor.There are two ramps down to the restaurant so access isn't a problem. Parking is right there beside the ferry dock entrance. Not being locals we missed a few steps in the ordering process. Ask for lemon and tartar sauce when you order and it will save you going back after your food arrives. Really friendly staff! I wouldn't order the deep fried apple pie again, too much like something you'd get at McDonald's but at a higher price. I strongly recommend this restaurant.
