Party of four of us dropped in here for lunch after viewing the eagle display in Delta BC. It’s a fairly plain bar somewhat rustic setting with a good view of the Steveston harbor . The focus is on seafood with fresh salmon, halibut, cod and calamari. The calamari, covered in a very thin breading was superb with melt in... More

We stopped for lunch on a very busy holiday and were very pleased with how fast our drinks and meal came. We were expecting to have to wait quite a while but were served remarkably quickly. Must be good staffing levels and very efficient wait staff. We both had the cod and chips and thankfully it was battered lightly and... More

This restaurant was horrendous to say the least. We waited about 15 minutes to get served. We ordered sangria, which was not as advertised. Basically house wine, with some 7-Up added and frozen strawberries. We ordered the Georgia Straight Seafood Share Platter. Basically Deep Fried Calamari, Deep fried Salmon, Deep Fried Halibut and Deep Fried Cod. What arrived was arguably... More

We ceased going to Shady Island some time ago but relented to return for a fish (cod) and chip dinner. At $17 per person I would have been happier at Pajo's at the Wharf. The batter on the fish was soggy when it arrived at our table although it appeared dark and overcooked.

I was quite surprised when I got the bill. Substitution are highly priced and you have to pay for any extras. But they don't take anything off when you don't want certain ingredients. I felt ignored and treated with less respect. Not sure if it had to do with the fact I took my son out for lunch. I noticed... More

This patio is on the pier and overlooks the water with nice views. Good food but a bit pricey. I had the halibut sandwich and my husband had the seafood pot which was average.

On a sunny day this is a great place to head for: views out to the marina, the water and islands beyond. The menu has a wide choice with plenty of interesting seafood options. Good choice of drinks as well and all delivered with a smile. Food came quickly - but not too quickly! - and everyone was happy with... More

My partner had the clam chowder and she said that it was as good as she's had anywhere. I had the Angus burger - I've had better burgers. The beer was good though.

We had one day in Vancouver while waiting for our flight home after a family cruise. Our hotel recommended that we go to the pier at Stevenson. We took the bus ($2.75 Can) and enjoyed a walk on the pier with the fish vendors and sat outdoors at the Shady Island Seafood for lunch. The food was tasty and well... More
