“Superb fish & chips”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

My wife and I stopped here for lunch at midday and sat outside as it was a warm sunny day. The seating area is a floating dock right on the quay side, not too many tables, just a few picnic benches and a bar/stool set up around the perimeter. There are a few seats inside the restaurant, very tight though. We had to wait about 50 minutes for our food to be ready, which was far too long in my opinion, although the restaurant was quite full. I think that if you have the food to take away it does not take as long. However, as we had the time the wait was worth it. We both had the 2 piece halibut and chips. Probably the best fish and chips I have ever had, fish was very fresh and a very generous portion too, with nice crisp batter ( they do it grilled too). Also probably the least I have paid for 2 piece halibut anywhere. Highly recommend this place for fish and chips if it's a nice warm day.

“Awesome food and great location”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Great fresh fish and chips and we watched a seal eat his dinner at the same time.
We love floating restaurants and there are very few even though we are on the coast.

“Yummy and fun”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Great fish and chips, served in cone wraps on picnic tables. A fun casual meal if that's what you are looking for.

“Great location isn't matched by the food”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

I love coming to Dick's for the view and the experience but the food doesn't quite make the grade... The fish itself was perfect - not too dry and tasty, but if I'm being picky, the batter was a little bland and underdone, and the slaw had an off taste. The chips were good. The kids loved having their own little table and watching in the water for creatures floating or swimming by.

“Sloo-ooooo-ooow!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We walked by here earlier in the day and there was a long line, so concluded the food must be great. When we arrived, very few people were there, and we still waited 40 minutes for our fish and chips. Maybe the line gets long because service is so slow....
The food was OK, a little greasy but fresh. The coleslaw - mediocre.
It might be the best in Campbell River, but I would keep looking.
