My last day in Victoria was a beauty day to walk along the wharf! The fish store was open and I had the Dungeness crab lunch, and while I was waiting I bought some fish to feed the seals. I could feed those seals all day long they are so flippin cute! The folks working in the store were very... More

Stopped by after a whale tour and ordered the salmon fish tacos. The fish was so moist and tasty and the salsa was smoky and spicy. This is a great spot (I even saw some seals while I was waiting for my food).

Very busy, friendly. Was torn between buying fish and chips and a steamed Dungeness crab. Couldn’t resist the very obviously fresh crab. User error! It was delicious but I am not proficient with the wooden mallet and most of my $25 crab went flying through the air. No time left before I had to board a tour boat wishing I... More

The fish was perfect. Hot, fresh, a yummy thin crispy crust. The fries were good. The coleslaw average. The prices a bit dear. Great spot, seals right by the dock being fed baitfish, great show.

This has an unsurpassed location being right on the wharf, surrounded by the amazingly decorated floating homes as well as boats and wildlife. The fish was super fresh and very tasty. I love that they sell fresh fish for you to feed the local seals & that they seem to genuinely care about the seals. We had the West Coast... More

Tried lunch at The Fish Store Oct 13th and though the food was tasty and met expectations, it was a bit overpriced for what you got. Probably because of their touristy location right on Fisherman's Wharf.

There are two fish places side by side at Fisherman's Wharf --Barb's and The Fish Store. I was there with my husband and two sons on Victoria Marathon weekend. We decided we wanted to try both of these so we got two plates of fish and chips from Barb's but from The Fish Store I ordered there daily special --mussels... More

The Fish Store was a surprise. The menu suggested a high class restaurant, but what we discovered was a tiny floating kitchen moored to the wharf. A floating community of brightly colored homes were adjacent and created a neighborly feel. A harbor seal wedged himself between the wharf and kitchen and begged for herring by splashing our feet while we... More

All I ever heard about when going to Victoria was I had to go to Red Fish Blue Fish. Even when we took the water taxi to Fisherman's Wharf the guy mentioned another place to eat. What made us decide to go to "thefishstore"? Who knows but what a smart decision it was. Not only is the food better but... More
