I grew up in the PNW, and am a big fish n chips lover. This place has the best ever! The line is suuuuper long, so come prepared to enjoy the view while you wait. Well worth it!

Good food as usual. Jerk fish poutine favorite. Could stick with classic dish options but is special and worth trying.

Simple business model that works very well. Convert some old shipping crates into kitchens, stick them on a dock near the downtown tourist trade and presto...a winning formula. Simple, straightahead seafood, well priced and delicious. We only ever get the fish and chips but they are delightful...always fresh and hot. Only downside perhaps is the limited seating during peak times... More

Had fish and chips made of halibut. They were very very delicious. Not only the fish but also the chips. The tartar sauce and coleslaw was also very nice. Usually you will find a bit of a queue, but it well worth waiting. Well done and keep up the good job!

This is our favourite fish n' chips on the island so far, and we go every time we visit Victoria. Incredibly fresh, nice light batter, great fries and fish tacos! Highly recommend... even if the line is long (which it usually is in nice weather!)

The line is long but well worth the wait. Fish n chips were great and the tuna taco was fantastic. Great view of the harbor as u eat outside. I would definitely go back

You have to stand in line but well worth it. Go a little before normal lunch or dinner time and wait is only about 20 minutes. Huge portions for reasonable price.

There's a reason the line is as long as it is. My entire family got a hearty portion of fish and chips and all were more than satisfied.

The wait was quickly as I came down from Nanaimo, picked up Sister in Metchosin and then got our chairs set up along the Causeway below the Empress Hotel for a place to watch and listen from. It was a short walk over to the Red Fish Blue Fish and after we got our fish 'n chips (we both picked... More
