The floating food booths on Fisherman's Wharf were a lot of fun and the food was very good. We stopped at The Fish Store for a quick lunch.The smoked salmon chowder was absolutely the best I have ever eaten. Lots of chunks of sweet smoked salmon and the broth was amazing. I also ordered a cod fish taco. Very tasty.... More

The Fish Store (The Floating Fish Store on Facebook/twitter) is my all time favourite place to eat in Victoria. My top picks are the salmon rice wraps with teriyaki sauce and/or the halibut tacos. The service is great, the location is beautiful, and the food is phenomenal. (Resident of Victoria)

I had the halibut and chips with coleslaw... wow so tasty. The coleslaw is a homemade recipe and outstanding. This fish and chips place also uses sustainable fish and green practises. New this year, there are signs saying please do not feed the seals... you can purchase a plate of fish pieces for $5.25 from this place and feed the... More

Attractive tourist spot with various food outlets but The Fish Store is as good or better than any. Outdoor eating but sheltered. Adjacent to the water where seals and otters appear for scraps and, seemingly, to entertain. Great halibut and fries with sides for me, and my wife, an avid salmon eater, reports the red sockeye with fries and sides... More

Seriously their chowder was great especially with the little bits of smoked salmon on top but everyone raved about their entrees too. Halibut fish & chips and the fish tacos. The staff was super friendly and the food was great, plus the spot on Fisherman's Wharf is fun.

Excellent food the soups were rich with flavor one of the best seafood chowder I've every had. Very friendly staff. Bypass the others on the warf and have a very satisfying meal at The Fish Store and watch the live seals eat.

We were blown away with the delicious fresh seafood we found at The Fish Store. It's a popular tourist spot so we weren't sure what to expect from the food, but it was excellent. Highly recommend the warming halibut malu soup (very well priced too) and spot prawns! Easily the best food we've had on our whole trip. Service was... More

Good fish and chips with designated deep fryer for gluten free options. Nice fluffy batter but a little pricey.

We had the most excellent fish & chip lunch at Fishermans Wharf on the sunny Sunday. We were searching out GF fish and chips for our celiac son and came across The Fish Store. They use a separate fryer for their GF options and the Fish was absolutely amazing! So good you would never believe it was GF. The rest... More

The fish is very fresh and I always have left overs. There are benches for you to eat at right next to the water where you have a clear view of the seals and for five bucks you can feed them (just watch out for the otter and the seagulls) I highly recommend visiting.
