The inquiry into the fish and chips special was answered with a sharp tone, "we don't do all you can eat fish'n'chips anymore". Seaside kitchen has been renowned as an all you can eat fish and chips on Wednesdays for years. At least from what I've seen on the internet and heard from locals. She then made it seem that...

We must have got a temporary waitress because others on here have commended the service. Our friends from England and my wife and I ordered one cup of clam chowder and four fish and chips. Simple order. After 50 minutes none of our food had arrived. Meanwhile several tables which had arrived after us in an uncrowded restaurant had been... More

No pretence just excellent fish, cooked how you like it. The service is great and friendly. The views from the restaurant across the water to Victoria on a late summer evening are memorable. All in all, an experience not to be missed if you get the opportunity

We "happened" upon this place and had a hankering for fried oysters. What we got was great service, friendly atmosphere, and THE BEST COOKED OYSTERS EVER!! Oh and a shout out to the great beer on tap too!

My grand parents took me her 30 years ago when I was a kid. The food was so good then that I have spent 30 years telling everybody about the place. I got the opportunity to go back last week and the food was even better than I remember. The place is hopping busy and doesn't have a lot of... More

We were a little uncertain when we saw the place but entered for drinks with an option to eat! We had drinks on the outdoor patio but discovered our option to eat was for indoors. We did so and ate the halibut (4/5) and enjoyed it. The service was good and authentic.

We arrived at Vesuvius Bay by ferry from Crofton thinking that we would find a village or transportation but alas nada. God smiled brightly on us by leading us to a balcony table at the Seaside. Great view, friendly staff and an amazing dinner of grilled, not battered halibut and another dinner of delicious crab cakes. A nice lunch and... More

We visited here as it was a recommended place to eat. My husband and son had fish and chips which were really good. I had the house pasta it was really good a little oily but good. I'd recommend reservations in the high season and I'd go back. The staff was a little off when we visited asked how they... More
