We had the Halibut and chips for lunch here along with a very delicious beer. I just loved Fisherman’s Wharf and this was the perfect little place to have lunch and the food was excellent.

Made to order and cooked while you wait. Fresh, hot and great fries made an excellent casual lunch. Covered outdoor area is available, plus different sauces to put on your fish and chips.

Tasty mussels in great broth. Disappointing oyster tacos. Lovely staff in a great location. Check the hours as things seem to close early

The best halibut I have ever tasted. A little cool this time of year sitting on pier but worth it. Did not taste the chowder but it was obvious from comments around me that it was a big seller as well.

Best fish and chips I ever had. Very fresh fish. Halibut definitely better than cod. Dry good and home made fries and local beer.

We had the salmon wraps, one with and one without the teriyaki sauce. They were excellent and filling. Definitely a place to return to in the future. FYI, table service is public picnic tables across from the facility. The food service is well positioned and...More

After our whale watching, we stopped here for lunch. Great halibut burger, and delicious dish with smoked salmon and tuna. Nice place and good food.

Stopped here on a rainy afternoon and, unfortunately, the covered seating was closed/roped off. We ordered the halibut and salmon tacos (both really good), and the ahi rice wrap (soo good!). Wait was short, food was good, I'd recommend.

Yes, there are picnic tables. Some are covered with tent tops on poles (open sides), worth the trip if you bundle up - they're amazing!
