This is an unassuming take-out with outdoor seating at picnic tables, but the food is delicious, served fast food style. We were privileged to sit at a table with 2 ladies from Victoria who confirmed that this is their favorite local seafood restaurant.

We loved the salmon chowder! Very good salmon lunch. We highly recommend if you’re going on a whale watching cruise. Outside tables are all around.

I’m an east coast gal and I was Leary of deep fried salmon but when in Rome (or BC in this case)... It was cooked perfectly and well seasoned. So good. Husband thoroughly enjoyed his chowder with fresh bread. Very good meal.

They may be lined up next door but the real seafood treasure is right here. Fresh! Fresh! Fresh! The chowder and other creative seafood soups are outstanding. Bread toasted on the flat-top makes the chowder complete. Was going to have the scallop special but the...More

The fish was fresh and we got great efficient service in a lovely relaxed setting. We really enjoyed eating out on the wharf among the floating houses on Fisherman's Wharf on a lovely clear evening.
