Our dining experiance was enjoyable overall. Different choice of bar beverages was interesting. The servers are friendly and efficient. We found the food portions good, I was not pleased with how greasy the fish was. I haven't been back and don't intend to.

We've eaten at Just for the Halibut before so we remembered to go earlier rather than later. Even so there was still a line-up but it didn't take too long before we were being led to the far, far end of the restaurant. On the Friday evening of Labour Day weekend the place was crowded with families celebrating the last long weekend of summer, and just about everyone seemed to be eating fish and chips, this restaurant's signature dish. Probably because the restaurant was so full, we had to wait longer than usual for our meal, but that was the only problem.The servings are generous and my fish and chips must have come straight out of the fryer because everything remained hot for most of the time it took to eat the meal. For fish and chip fans, this is one of the best places to find your favourite fast food!

This is an amazing place. The halibut is fantastic. There is always a long line up but in our opinion worth the wait. The staff are very friendly even though they are extremely busy

Love the warm atmosphere. Family run business, they made us feel glad we came in. Food was freshly prepared and served just as we wanted. The meal value is excellent. The menu is varied, and each of us had something different. Liver, grilled halibut, battered halibut, and chicken....all were wonderful. Service was fast, warm and friendly.
Highly recommend this restaurant.
