“Best fish and chips on the coast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

We returned for the first time in nearly 3 years (it was the last restaurant we ate at before moving away from Squamish years ago) and it was great to see that nothing has changed. Just simply the best. The halibut was great as always and the cod just melts in your mouth. The pies are great too, and a nice selection of beer completes the experience. We miss you, Wigan Pier!

“British fish and chips”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

Halibut was outstanding! I personally didn't enjoy their award winning chips but just a personal preference. Service was fast and friendly.

“Great fish and chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Eat in or take out, the fish and chips (cod or halibut or catch of the day) is well cooked and goddess quality /value.
Friendly staff, a selection of frozen pies and a beer whilst you wait.
Well worth a visit

“Delicious Fish & Chips and Quick Service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

I had another wonderful experience at Wigan Pier! I've only tried the Halibut & Chips, but it is amazing! Whenever I travel to Squamish, I make a point of stopping here. The fish is very fresh, flaky and absolutely delicious. They also give a massive portion of thick-cut fries which are also great (although a bit greasy.) Ive ate my way through the UK and have had my fair share of fish & chips. This tastes just as good! The service is friendly and very quick, which is always a bonus. It's not a fancy place, but cute and charming. My only complaint would be more tartar sauce on the side please!
