Not sure it is worth the wait, but based on the Trip Advisor reviews we gave it a go, as we'd just finished a whale watching trip 2mins away. I love the fact it is cooked to order, and the food was excellent, but it was around 30-40 mins wait. The fish and chips are good, but the real surprise... More

Small shack on the dock at inner harbor. Wait was 80 minutes on Saturday noon. Pleasant weather and nice conversation with line mates, but heed warnings of others on lining up at 11:00 am for lunch. Fish and chips was excellent (both halibut and cod), chowder has a coconut base but nice spice palate. Outdoor seating is very pleasant in... More

First of all , we are not avid seafood connoisseurs , but give me a break ! Waited in line on the dock for 45 minutes to receive , what seemed to me , an average order of fish and chips ! Nothing special. Yes the fish was fresh tasting but batter was bland , as something my wife could... More

We waited in line for about 30 minutes before ordering but it was very worth it! I had two "tacones", one salmon and one cod, and both were very good. Two was very filling, I barely finished them. The fish was so fresh. The location is great, being right in the harbor. It was a lovely place to have lunch.

Don't usually wait in any line for a hour but I had to see if it was as good as everyone says. Had halibut, chowder and grilled oysters, everything was good but place at fishermans wharf was just as good without the wait. Can't see myself going back unless there is no line.

Pro tip - get in line for lunch at 11 AM because it forms early. Pro tip - just outdoor seating so if it's cold plan to take your food away. Great fresh seafood, chips are just okay.

Yeah, it's a long wait in line....about 35 minutes. But it's worth it. I have had a lot of the menu.....but I love the "Cod Dog". Grilled Albacore tuna on fries is a close second..... I try and find a way to go there every visit.

Just returned from a wonderful trip to Victoria & Vancouver. After our morning whale watching excursion, we asked "Andrew" the marine biologist originally from the U.K. where to go in Victoria for the best fish & chips. He directed us here .... and a great meal it was. As others have said, be ready to wait in a long line.... More

This place is not a resaurant, its a converted cargo container used to do the cooking, located near the end of the inner harbour pier where there is some seating around the railing of the pier to sit and eat but its well worth the venture to find it. Be prepared as there is always a line up but the... More

I don't normally line up for a restaurant but the selection and freshness of the seafood makes this worthwhile We had the fish and chips - Halibut and Salmon. The fish was fresh, the batter crispy and the fries were excellent. It's worth the experience to spend some time right by the harbour.
