We often come here to bring our tourist friends to visit. We always get fresh seafoods if available. There are cute little shops in the village. Haven't tried the famous gelato there but will definitely come back.

We went to Steveston for the day. We enjoyed Pajo's fish and chips on the dock, a nice walk along the boardwalk and shopping on Moncton Street. The service is excellent and the people ( visitors and vendors alike )are friendly.

Today, the ships just came back with loads of fresh fish - buy yourself one for a reasonable price, and let them cut or fillet it just as you like it. How to know the fish is available? You will...

A very busy working harbour with difficult parking, but well worth the effort to visit. Fresh fish of many types available right from docked boats. Lots of restaurants, snack shops and cafes.

We had been to the Steveston Heritage Fishing Village many, many times, but we had never visited the Cannery National Historic Site. This is a must see experience of the early years and of the lives and times of those people who supported their families by working for the Fishing Industry in B.C. You can purchase this approx 1 1/2... More

Lots of interesting heritage of this little village is around to explore. Lots of signs explaining the history. Very good fish and chips and great pizza at Steveston Pizza Co. We ordered the princess. Smoked salmon sashimi,prawns and giant tiger prawns on it.

Having granddaughters that are fans of the TV show Once Upon A Time, we visited Steveston to look at the setting of many of the shows. We found Steveston to be a nice tourist stop and did some shopping along with our site seeing.
