We saw their 'now open' sign from the street and decided to have lunch there. I had Caesar salad and grilled halibut with lemon dill sauce. It was excellent, very flavorful. Be aware, they give you A LOT OF fries if you order chips.

We all (4 of us) tried different fish prepared different ways and it was excellent! But the chips left something to be desired.They were soft and almost tasted like they had been dehydrated, then fried. Great coleslaw, the sunflower seeds were a really nice and crunchy addition. Cesar salad was good. The grilled salmon was my favorite. The panko crusted option was really nice and crunchy.

We stopped off for supper on our way home from a day at Sproat Lake. We had read that this was a good place for fish and chips on TA. It was well worth the stop - loved the fact that you can choose how you want your fish done (beer battered, panko crusted or grilled). The servings were plenty large and the service was excellent, particularly since we had a large group of ten. Definitely a great place to stop to get your fish and chips fix!

A great place to eat when travelling to and from Tofino. We happened upon Bare Bones by accident and are very happy that we did. The fresh grilled salmon burger is fantastic and the fish and chips are excellent, and among the best batter we tasted on our trip through to Tofino. The service is excellent and the restaurant is located in a nice old church for added atmosphere. We will definitely stop on the next trip through Port Alberni.

Travelling with friends, we thought fish and chips in a seaport town might be good. I didn't expect great! The menu is simple and the portions are large. I've never had better halibut, slaw and chips, with a pint of local brew, casual dining doesn't get much better. I even liked their funky fish bones logo which was everywhere in the former church.
