Stopped in for a bite and loved it! The lingcod (which, did you know, is neither a ling nor a cod) fish and chips were on special so I ordered them and was super satisfied! Originally from Newfoundland I know good fish and chips, and this place has good fish and chips! Many of their fish are also Oceanwise, which... More

I love the food and atmosphere here, feels cozy and welcoming. The service is great and the food is delicious. I have gone here on a monthly basis for the past couple years and I have never had a bad experience. Highly recommend the "big catch" and the oysters are great too! Great to go to for a date or...

Sunday night visiting a different city is always a bit of a crap shoot, and being Vancouver, I was looking for fish. The waiter, who was friendly enough suggested the lobster (special), but didn't really know if it was local, which I suggested might be from the east coast! Being west coast, I thought grilled halibut would be the best... More

We used to pass this place on our way back to our hotel at night and it was always busy late on so we eventually had to go and check it out. We weren't disappointed. On the first occasion I had the blackened halibut with asian rice & slaw - very tasty but a bit overpriced in my opinion -... More

The Fish Shack was recommended to us by the hotel we stayed in. It was a very pleasant surprise when we ate dinner there. The menu had a lot of great seafood choices. I had the 1/2 dungeness crab on the happy hour menu. It was half price from the dinner menu and was delicious. Before 6pm, they serve $1.00... More

We ate here twice during our time in Vancouver. The food was great - good range, and everything we had was excellent. The fish tacos were particularly good, and the chowder in sourdough bowls gets an honourable mention. The service was great too. Our waitress was happy to make recommendations, and when the cocktail my partner ordered wasn't to her... More

Had dinner here with my husband whilst on holiday. Service was good, but food was average and to be honest could do better at home. We both chose our fish, one grilled the other blackened accompanied with fries and slaw. The slaw was good, really enjoyed the different flavours but fish was a disappointment. We ate here at my suggestion... More

The previous reviews of this fish house were very mixed, and I have to admit that the neighborhood is not Vancouver's best - there is an adult 'toy' store across the street advertising 25 cent peep shows, and many of the neighboring storefronts are vacant. And I didn't notice the place the first time I passed it even though I... More

An informal dinner with work colleagues in town for a trade show looking for something vaguely healthy brought us here for some simple fish. In fairness, the staff couldn't have been more pleasant but we were somewhat disappointed by the meager portions despite the price; pretty decent calamari and crab cakes but not enough to share as an appetizer and...
