“Just like being back home in the UK”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2010

Dick's was recommended by our grizzly bear tour guide and it didn't disappoint. It's a small shack down by the water with a tiny inside seating area and small floating outside area. Although it was September, it had been such a beautiful day that we ate outside. The fish and chips come in paper cones and there are special holes in the tables to stick them into which is novel. I had the halibut and my husband had the cod. The fish was excellent, really moist, and the batter wasn't too thick or soggy. The chips were great, and they even had mushy peas. For those non-UK people reading this, you really have to try it, it's not as horrible as it sounds and Dick made a really good job of them. Eating here made me homesick for the UK after 2.5 years in New York...

“Best meal in Campbell River!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2010

Our Native American Grizzle Tour guide recommended the place, he said that Dick was an old fisherman and served ONLY the best. We told him that we'd already eaten there twice.
Great food, great spot on the dock, I loved the outside tables with a hole cut to hold your paper cone of fish and chips. When in Campbell River, don't miss the grizzle's and DEFINITELY don't miss Dick's Fish and Chips.

“Best fish&chips on Vancouver Island!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2010

We went to Dick's during our brief stay in Campbell River. The place is conveniently located downtown, ample parking nearby. Dick's has a great atmosphere, staff are very friendly, and we immediately had a very good feeling about the place. When we picked up our order, we weren't disappointed. For me it was the best fish&chips on Van Isl! With the great seating outside and the excellent food, this is an excellent place to go to treat yourself after a long day exploring the Island. But please: respect Bailey's wasteline! :)

“Best Fis & Chips in BC!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2010

We spent two weeks in BC and coming from the UK thought we knew a bit about Fish & Chips. After a few samples elsewhere Dick's was definitely the best we encountered during our trip. Great fish an excellent position at the harbour and a really good atmosphere all added up to make it a place not to miss.
