Every aspect of our experience was amazing. We had the"Famous Salad" (well deserved description), Crab Cakes and Haddock with fries (Fish n' Chips). Food, staff and setting - all 5 stars.

We were looking for a fish and chips place on the island and got sent here. Glad we did. First try we were turned away--they were full all night. Weren't even doing takeout. So while there we made a reservation for the following night. Table ready right away but a note there said their small kitchen was doing its best... More

Ate here after swimming at Vesuvius Beach, delicious cod fish and chips. Great spot to hitch a ride from people coming off the ferry if you're on foot too!

The restaurant itself is a small beautiful little place along the water which was nice for grabbing a beer before dinner. No issues there. The fish and chips were also awesome, but there was not even enough tarter sauce so I asked for more. It took over 10 minutes to get more while our food got cold. Additionally, we had... More

It was recommended by a relative to get the fish and chips. We took my wife's cousin with us,as he lives on Salt Spring Island. We had a great view from the deck. My wife and I decided on the halibut & chips, while our cousin had the cod special. All I can say about our dinner(s) is that you... More

Great view from inside (we were lucky enough to have a window seat) or from the patio of the ocean and over to Crofton to see the sunset. Delicious fish (halibut) and chips, perfectly cooked. The breaded shrimp not so much, but the ambiance, good BC wine selection, excellent craft beer choices and friendly service still warrant a 5/5. Reservations... More

Went with friends for dinner to Seaside Kitchen and enjoyed a wonderful fish and chips dinner. The service was friendly and the halibut in batter was excellent! Our friend with food sensitivities was able to be accommodated and we had a wonderful view of the ocean. We enjoyed it so much we went back again two days later for lunch.... More

We didn't have reservations, and so when they tried to seat us inside, we were about to leave. The owner (maybe) intervened and found us a spot on the deck. The food was good...but sadly they'd run out of halibut. An overall good experience...and we were thankful to the owner!
