“Go Fish”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

There was a bit of a queue and subsequent wait for the food to be cooked, but it was inexpensive. The portions weren't huge, but were filling enough. The situation was impressive, with a view across the harbour to the city high rises.

“Best value, best fish and soup--Picnic time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Even though you will wait in line to order and then wait again for your food to be prepared, you will not be disappointed! The daily soup is one of the delights of our time each year in Vancouver. The spicy fish "cones" are amazing. We have learned to ask for everything to go. It can be very warm on the dock in the summer, so plan to take your wonderful meal to the nearby park.

“Delicious fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Basically this is just a trailer with outdoor tables in parking lot by Granville Island but the food was great and the views are fantastic. It was a lovely sunny day and we sat at the table and ate our food overlooking the water. The food is freshly cooked - lovely moist fish, tasty chips served in baskets with coleslaw and tartare sauce. Portions are a good size, it was hard to finish and all delicious.
The place is very popular and there was a small queue but the service was quick. There is a nice friendly atmosphere to the place and sitting in the sun eating great fish and chips by the water makes it a nice place to be.

“Takeaway Fish and Chips in Vancouver”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The service was quick and pleasant. I ordered 4 fish and chips which I was told comes with coleslaw and Tartare Sauce. They cooked the fish which took about 10 minutes for it all to be ready. Friendly and good value ($24 in total).

“Not worth the hype or lineup”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We joined the lineup at this shack on Fisherman's Wharf and what a disappointment. The food was expensive for what you got and not very good. The fried fish was very oily, the salmon on a bun small and just ok and the tuna on a bun not that much better. It is not worth the hype and you can get better for cheaper and in a nicer atmosphere. We would not recommend it.
