“Well prepared, unpretentious, fresh seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

This is a shop where you can buy fresh seafood over the counter, or have your own catch cleaned, that also serves seafood dinners and lunches in a small, crowded room that lacks atmosphere. What's so good about it? They have fresh seafood and know how to prepare it. Nothing fancy, although they go well beyond (excellent) fish and chips. The servers are all-business, no-nonsense. I liked it a lot. If I lived in Prince Rupert, I'd probably be a semi-regular.

“Fantastic food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

I have eaten a lot of fresh seafood. But the Seafood Salad at Dolly's was very memorable.
I arrived alone and was surprised to ahve to wait for a table. Just showed me that I was in the right spot!!

Not a lot of tables so do call ahead.

“There for the crab, etc.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Great Crab --- great dessert.

A small place so reservation is required --- so glad we were able to get in on our second night in PR>

“Anticipation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

I had been so looking forward to this meal and was pleasantly surprised to get a table for 4 immediately after reading other reviews. I had the crab cake, which was good, but my wife was disappointed with her halibut in comparison to the one she had had a few years ago in White Rock, Vancouver.
