fantastic fresh and delicious food from a nice little shipping container right alongside the water. there are lots of places to eat.... a bar with stools facing the water and a cluster of tall tables and chairs under a cover. the chowder is amazing (coconut milk based- woohoo!!) and the grilled tuna over salad is SO GOOD. the fresh chips...

Nice friendly staff with a open view of the cooking area that is well kept. I had the halibut and chips with a local root beer and certainly not disappointed. Not over battered and extremely well cut piece of fish was paired perfectly with fresh cut double cooked fries and a delightful tartare sauce. Love the local feel and being... More

Victoria has more restaurants per capita than San Francisco...hard to believe in a city that once was pretty much a beef and potatoe town with a smattering of hollandaise if your were pushing the envelope, Today for a restaurant, any restaurant, to survive economically they have to be beyond very very good...they have to be great! With all of this... More

You will wait in line outside, possibly fifteen minutes are more. You will wait a while, once your order is taken, to get your food. You will eat under a covered picnic area, outside. And you will love it! Red Fish/Blue Fish is always busy. It's because it makes excellent, tasty, ultra fresh seafood at reasonable prices. My husband and... More

Got the fish and chips cause had told how great they were and they were delicious only complaint was the tarter sauce wasn't as good as I hoped. The soup was creamy and good tasted like coconut curry and I loved it.

I am not a huge fan of seafood, but couldn't pass up the opportunity to try some fish and chips on the waterfront. It was a busy place with a fairly long line. Service was good

The line tells the take, so prepare to stand in it for a bit. RFBF is the best fish and chips in a town full of fish and chips. Responsibly harvested and served peire-side, redfish bluefish is great for locals, tourists, and everyone in between. you haven't had fish and chips until you've had RFBF. The only real competition in... More

This place is not easily spotted from the street but once we found it was a great place to have lunch. Pieces of fish are big, unless really hungry would only go for one piece, get chips and cole slaw as well. It was a rainy day when we went but would be a great place in nice weather as... More

I waited over an hour because I was told not to miss it. The line was long and did not move for a loooong time. Then 3 men who were customers were each taking large apple box sized boxes filled with orders away ! They had place a large group order. Line took me over an hour and I was... More

This out door food truck on the inner wharf delivers some of the best fresh seafood around although sometimes the food is not as consistently prepared as it could be. I love the grilled salmon and dill pickle Caesar salad. Because they are so popular prepare yourself to wait in a long lineup. I feel their food is worth the... More
