This place is so highly rated that we just had to go. It was good, but if you don't have an hour to kill it wouldn't be worth it. Had a lovely time chatting with the people in line. Don't feel like you really missed something if you don't make it, it is fish, good fish but just fish.

Prepare to stand in line for outdoor, on the dock dinning. I had the grilled wild salmon salad and it was exceptional. The salmon fillet was enormous and I ate every bite. The salad was super fresh. Most people get fish and chips or wraps, but there is a great healthy alternative.

Really just an average seafood joint. Nothing so special here. I am pretty biased as I catch and prep my own fish and shellfish. Go when the line is small to try it out...I do recommend this place but really ....it's not the best in Victoria.

We were in a day stop in Victoria during an Alaskan cruise in July of 2016. Arrived around 11:45 and waited for about 40 minutes to get to front of the line to order -- and then another 15 minutes after that for the food. We had halibut fish and chips and they were amazing! Best fish and chips we've... More

We discovered a fabulous little spot literally on the water in Victoria. It's located on a dock right off the sidewalk with a little sign, we discovered it while hanging around the waterfront trying to spend our Canadian dollars before taking the ferry back to Port Angeles. The line was very very long. I think other reviews have suggested going... More

It you fly into the Victoria Harbor on a seaplane, red fish/blue fish is to your immediate left from the airport. There is a big parking lot in front of the airport, but I don't know whether it was free or not. Guessing that it is not. It is within a block of the Visitors Information Center. This is an... More

We heard that we may have to wait for our food. We did wait - almost an hour. With that being said, it was definitely worth the wait! By far the most delicious fish and chips I've ever had! Treat yourself! You won't regret it!

I've eaten here before, and that time I waited about 30 minutes total for line up and food to be ready. Yesterday I went again. The line had about 10 people in it, not bad at all. The cashier was awful, and I hate to be that guy as I work a very similar job. In 30 minutes he served... More

I had the jerk poutine and the chowder and my companion had the cod and chips and the fried oysters. All were fresh and very good. The poutine was spicy seafood on fries with sauce and green onions (not the fries, cheese curd brown gravy local dish) and was tasty although more fries than fish. The chowder was spicy and... More
