I went here in the spring before the busy tourist season and was told the wait could be over an hour in season. Fortunately I did not have to wait that long but I would have. The fish is fresh and well portioned the menu is full of flavor and selections. I had the fish (halibut) and chips with the... More

This is an absolute must do on the water side of Victoria. SOOO, tasty! Yes, you'll have to wait in line. They are quick, though, so talk to your neighbours and it will be more pleasant. Fabulous food.

Yes, go to the harbor near the seaplanes, and hit it at a time between meals when the line is not so long or non-existent, and order up anything they serve. Be prepared to be amazed. And if you get there at peak hours, be prepared to stand in line for that tasty joy. It is worth it. Remember, it... More

Our last meal before the Clipper back to Seattle. Halibut and chips. So good, the pieces of fish were huge and so fresh. The breading was thin and crispy, not greasy. Really great take-out. We took it back to the inner harbor seating area to eat. Lovely

What are cool little place that was not only tasty but is made using sustainable fish and recyclable boxes and cutlery. A couple of things to note though - you will probably have to queue, we queued around 20 minutes. They only have outdoor seating, so eating there is somewhat weather permitting or I suppose you could take away. Also... More

We were there around 1pm on a overcast Saturday afternoon, this may have been why the line up wasn't as bad as we were told it could be. The wait was about 30 min but the fish taco's were fantastic.

We ate there twice. Very good fish and chips and fish tacos. Line up can be long but both times the staff was fast! The staff was also very friendly. Eating right there on the dock watching the boats was a great experience. The location to downtown was very convenient.

Cool little joint on the waterfront. Excellent cod and chips. These guys have converted a shipping container into a seafood stand. Just be sure to get there early as the lines can be wacky, such is the quality of the food.

Delicious fish and chips, very fresh and fast. We were there on a rainy cold day but there was no line despite the "patio" was full- many still braving the cold for good food! If it was a hot busy day it would have been difficult to get a seat and I would assume many stand and eat so that... More

Great salmon and chips with sweet red chili fries. Food cooked just right. Great service from Kaitlin and John. Very reasonable price for inner harbour.
