Good fish.

Stopped on the way to the ferry and got a quick snack. Good food but make sure to ask for extra crispy fries. I saw an order when I walked in and was happy with getting the extra time in the oil. Portions are not large and prices are not low but they are tasty. Takes about 10 - 12... read more

We shared the classic fish & chips. As a fairly experienced fish & chip eater, I rate these as "up there" with the best. Not overly battered & good flavour. There isn't much room to sit out, but there are many spots around if you want to take your meal to-go. The owners seemed to genuinely cared that we enjoyed... More

The cod and halibut and chips were excellent! To be honest, was not expecting the best and had not intended to go here except Sharkey's was closed. Very pleasantly surprised. Service very friendly and accommodating. Split shared meal into two trays without being asked. A little pricey compared to our usual places in Lower Mainland. Owners were thrilled and grateful...

Wonderful fish and chips, not too much batter and they serve the BEST coleslaw ever. She makes her own dressing.

Used to be the best fish and chips in town. Terrible now! New owner better improve or they won't make it in this small town.

Came for some fish and chips with my husband and was greeted and served by the owner of the restaurant. We ordered the ling cod. The owner suggested that we share a two-piece order since the fries portion is so ginormous. Our food came split into two baskets of fish and chips; how considerate. The fish was cooked to perfection:... More

It's a cute place with personality to boot. The owner does the cooking & talks to you the whole time she's deep frying your fish or a yummy corn dog. The serving sizes are big with a basket full of REAL French fries. We will go back again & again.

Codfathers poutine is worth its weight in gold. No kidding one of the best poutines i have ever had. Huge portions. Great friendly service. This will become a traditional stop on the way to the ferry.

The chef is a weirdo and didnt leave us alone so try get it to take away! He didnt stop talking about his cooking skills, we didnt ask. Sounds rude but honestly he was so full on. Especially for people who have already chosen to eat there. Perfect fish and chips. They know their stuff.
