I am a fairly regular visitor to Cap'n Sharky's. I have probably had lunch here (and at their other, former location across from Canadian Tire in Aberdeen) at least 20 times over the years.

The restaurant is clean, the waitresses have always been friendly and efficient, the service from the kitchen is very fast. The coleslaw which seems to accompany every meal is excellent. The batter on the fish is light and ultra-crispy and holds very little grease. The chips are fresh. The food is HOT when it arrives at the table.

They really do only one thing and that is fish and chips and variations thereof, oysters and chips, prawns and chips, etc., but they do that one thing very well. If you don't want to eat deep-fried seafood and chips, don't come here (although I think they serve rice as an alternative to the chips, but why bother?).

I am giving this place an "Excellent" rating because it does what does so well.

I picked this place off the back of a map purely because I wanted fish and chips. It was delicious and the service was great. If you want fast food fish and chips you probably cant bear it - great prices too

If one is going to eat fried food against their better judgement then this is the place to do it. Fish and chips are fresh and good. The fish is not overly battered and the fries are freshly made...coleslaw is good. Not a fancy place but for fish and chips cravings it fits the bill. Reasonably priced

This used to be good, but the last couple of times I tried it, the portions were tiny and the price wasn't. Won't bother with it again. Joey's is much better if you want a quick seafood place.

Best Hallibit ever eaten! Served to you hot and the best homemade fries as well! Friendly staff and two locations in Kamloops too - one on North Shore and the other in Aberdeen!
