Stopped here for an early lunch of cod and chips and ice cream. All for $13 and was enough for 2. Fabulously helpful staff.

The Beach Hut has fantastic workers and their Halibut and Chips has become a family favourite. We now ensure our week ends with this delicious meal! Highly recommended.

A great place to grab an ice creme or some fish and chips while out for a walk on the beach. Open through the summer only..

I really have only experienced the ice cream at this spot although I see many people ordering fish and chips, and other items. The ice cream is one of the best values in town. Large scoops, lots of them, and a super low price. Can't drive past there especially with my grandchildren in the summer without stopping and getting ice... More

terrible food - maybe ok for an ice cream or a drink, but avoid the fish and chips and burgers. The chicken burger i ordered was probably the worst I have ever had. Inedible. Not that cheap either, for a deep fried hockey puck on a stale bun. The fish and chips were mystery lumps in thick nasty batter.

Stale buns - we buy our buns and produce fresh every morning, guaranteed. Lumpy fish and chips - for our fresh battered cod and halibut, we make a light tempura style batter that we spice with pepper, garlic, paprika and dill. Hockey puck chicken burgers - we use a moist, crumb breaded chicken breast fillet. We all had one today... More

We set out to have fish and chips in Powell River and found the Beach Hut. They also had poutine on the menu and since we have been living in Costa Rica for 12 years we couldn't resist. The poutine was good... not great but much better than many and the fish and chips were very good but I would... More

I enjoy the poutine very filling and the fries are just yummy.. There are so great eats there and they have some great Popsicles there, but the best ice cream is across the road at the mini golf place.

Stopped for lunch and had the Cod & Chips. They have a nice little patio along the road, but you could take your food & eat along the ocean and park. Very nice location. Also have ice cream.

We have been eating the soft ice cream at the Beach Hut for many years but last week a friend had a small vanilla soft ice cream in a regular cone and then tested their sugar levels. To their surprise their sugar levels had not risen beyond the normal level which must mean that the ice cream is not as... More

Very good cod burger and fries, as well as poutine with real cheese. A bit on a pricey side but it is a beach hut, right in a park with a beach - very convenient parking, too. All was served promptly, with a smile and attention to detail. You shouldn't miss this concession gem.
