Best fish n' chips on the Coast

I frequent this little restaurant a few times a summer.. Great food, great staff and great view. Watch the eagles go by and the boats coming In with their catch of the day. This one of a kind, little gem, hidden by the docks is a must to visit when you are in Prince Rupert.

Every summer we anticipate visiting this place because they make the most delicious fish & chips. The batter is crispy and doesn't overwhelm the fish. There are two types of fish served: halibut or cod. Perfectly spiced, too.

We love to get Bob's and eat it right there at the waterfront picnic tables on a sunny day. My cousin visiting from Ontario said it was the best fish and chips she's ever had!

Awesome place to eat outside, right by the water. The Food is Great and so is the view. In the height of Summer you have about thirty Bald Eagles all around, Seals and Otters too. Highly recommended.

The owner was very friendly and chatty and SHE even set up chairs for us in the ice shed out of the rain so we could enjoy our cod, halibut & fries. This is the first time I've had fries (chips) with the skins (jackets) still on the ends or sides. They were delicious! I liked the halibut a lot.

We were on a cruise ship and decided to eat in town. Lots of options in Prince Rupert, but we decided to avoid the more touristy locations and were delighted to find this restaurant. It's a bit off the beaten path, but still only about an extra 5 minutes away from town. Prices are fair, portions are generous...and did I... More

Fantastic operating hours. Saved our fishing by having bait for sale at 5:00 AM. Also open late into evening. Located right at marina with boat/trailer parking.

I was there for lunch and really enjoyed the fish and chips. Not greasy, not too much batter, done very well. There is not a lot of choice, so if you do not want something fried, you are best to look elsewhere. But if you want fish and chips and feel like eating outside watching the eagles this is a...

My husband and I come from Nova Scotia so we enjoy a nice fish & chips and a seaside outdoor eating experience. First & foremost, the fish and chips we had were very tasty. Being an outdoor eating area, it was very clean & well stocked, so we could grab our own utensils & condiments. (I for one was happy... More
